Why couldn't we have a calendar like Grandma Mae? Hers hung above the apartment size gas stove in her kitchen. Every day she would write the temperature and one word to describe the weather.

Attached to the nail was a string, attached to the string there was a pencil. They were always together and one was NOT to move the pencil.

I would have thought, and it may be so, that the other grandmother would have written the date she planted seeds in the garden. Or did people just keep those facts in their heads?

Why would anyone want to keep track of the weather on a calendar, anyway? :)

This is going some where, isn't it?
