February – My owner used me for a few minutes last week. He had an argument and was checking references.
March – Grandpa visited us. He kept me on his lap for an hour, reading 1 Corinthians 13.
April – I had a busy day. My owner was appointed a leader of something and used me. I got to go to church the first time this year…Easter Sunday.
May – I have a few grass stains on my pages. Had some early spring flowers pressed in me.
June – I look like a scrap book. They have stuffed me full of clippings. One of the girls got married.
July – They put me in a suitcase today. I guess we’re off on a vacation. I wish I could stay at home, as I will have to stay in this thing for a month.
August – Still in the suitcase.
September – Back home again, and in my old place. I have lots of company. Two “True Stories” and four “Funny Books” are on top of me. I wish I could be read as much as they are.
October – They used me a little today. One of them is sick. Right now I’m all shined up and in the center of the table…I think the preacher is coming.
November – Back in my old place.
December – They are getting ready for Christmas. I’ll be covered under wrapping papers and packages.
