    Well hot dayummm, JB! How'd you know I was just thinking about a 2008 calendar? The one I have for this year was sent as a Christmas gift from my guy pal in your part of the world. Looking at it, I just now realized that I haven't looked at it since May. I have it hanging on the wall in the kitchen, teehee!

    I'll make it a point to hang it over me desk so that I'll keep track of the months better. I promise!

    Thank you for such a nice mystery gift, Dear.
