1917 All Over Again?

Hello from John's Island. Thank you for joining us as we begin our 8th year in the blogosphere. This year we will continue to share some items from our collection of stuff older than we are! Our first item is, appropriately enough, the Circling Year Calendar for 1917. You see, 2018 is the same, only different. Well, what we mean is the days are all lined up the same way. And each week there is a little quotation that seems to apply just as well today as it did 101 years ago! We'll add more pages as time goes by. Let us know if you like the quotations.

 


Ship Watch, Sky Watch, Postcards and more will return soon. Happy New Year to all my followers and friends. Thank you for stopping by John's Island.

  2. It's always a wonderful thing to visit your island on the web, John. I've missed you. Thank you for the lovely quotations. They are as relevant to me today and they must have been for the owner of the January 1917 calendar. Happy New Year! :-)

  7. 1917 is the year my grandma was born. She is no longer with us, but this makes me realize how close together these years are. 101 years is a breath.

  10. Great! i like to find calendars with the matching months. A long time ago---my Mother died recently and she was born in 1916---she had a long and interesting life.

  11. btw John, Angie is a rescue eagle who can't fly. She lives at the National Eagle Center. That day a volunteer had taken her for a wade along the shore of the Mississippi where we met her on the way home. She spent many years visiting nursing homes, elementary schools on behalf of her kind. Mrs T (Barb) and I became friends with her over the years. She went to eagle heaven recently and is fondly missed. Ray (Troutbirder)
