As you might expect, the pickings are slim in the calendar aisles of the bookstore. Nevertheless, 22 days into the new year, I wandered off to dig through the scraps for a $5 wall calendar. (For the past three weeks, I have been gesturing .to the blank spot on my wall where a calendar usually hangs...soooooo, I had to find SOMETHING suitable.)
Sure, there were the normal cute kittens and well-dressed puppies; there were ducklings, cows, pigs, and even "jackasses". But the 12-months of hamster photos took top prize as the oddest calendar to grace a wall.
What did I buy? Hardly surprising: vintage black and white photographs of trains. There were actually THREE competing calendars with that theme.
