I am encouraged by the personal comments I get about Mondays With Mary. I am glad so many of you enjoy this feature. However, my ability to write from those calendars is limited due to my winter location. I only have a few of these treasures with me. One of those calendars is from 1985, and I thought I could do a little 30 years ago series. Oops. I guess it will have to be 31 years ago. Happy New Year.

The morning temperatures for the rest of the third week in January are recorded as 10 degrees, 18 degrees, 26 degrees, 18 degrees, and then Saturday, January 19 starts off with "13 degrees below zero" "high winds - getting colder" and ending with "22 degrees below to-nite".
Now I know why I am writing from a warmer climate.
