I usually have my favorite Robert Duncan calendar hanging there...but was most disappointed to discover it was sold out...so I settled for second best this year. If you are not familiar with the paintings of Robert Duncan...check out this link. (Click arrow to start power point presentation.) Next year I will purchase my calendar well in advance...rather than hoping to get it on sale after Christmas...only to find it is no longer available!
Back to the firefighters calendar. I made a special trip to the mall just before Christmas...since I heard rumours that there were firemen there...selling calendars for 2010. I must admit that I have never before even considered buying such a calendar......but since my nephew happens to be a local fireman...and since I knew he was at the booth...
...of course I wanted one.
I was quite relieved when I saw the calendar...thinking it might be one I would only want hanging behind closed doors...but it is rather a nice tribute to our local fire department, featuring our firefighters and their equipment.
Eric is in his first year as a full time fireman for the City of Chilliwack Fire Department which has been proudly serving our community since 1906. He is featured in the month of March. All proceeds of the calendar went to charity...and I think it was a fine purchase.
Those are the two calendars that I won't be writing on...I only write on 'free' calendars. Smile.
I hope you are on the right page by now...that would be January 2010. Have a great day!
