11/12/2009 {importance of a date}

Thursday, November 12, 2009

One of the things that I noticed while going through Thelma's things {sorry I cannot promise that this will be the last time you hear about her} is the importance of dating everything and not just the month and day but the year {all four numbers}. You never know who is going to be reading your love letters or journal one day when you are gone and you have to give them the courtesy of a date {wink}. The photo is an autograph book that Thelma's mother had from her 'school days,' dated Dec. 25, 1893, 116 years ago {a little treasure that my grandmother let me take home}.

Reads: 'Maud. When you are far away And you have long forgot Proast one longing glance at this And read. Forget me not Dizzie Carman Woodville Cal Dec. 25, 1893'
