On Receiving a Calendar

I received in the mail today a package I was not expecting.

It was the Colonial Williamsburg 2010 Wall Calendar.

I’ve been contributing to the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation for a few years now, even though it’s someplace I’ve never been, though I’ve always meant to go. They produce a nice history magazine, and I enjoy their podcast as well; sometimes they talk to the historical recreation actors, sometimes they talk to historians about issues of colonial history.

So, now, I have a calendar for the office. It’s full of photographs of the buildings of colonial Williamsburg, with historical notes about what the building is, what it means, what happened there.

I’ll have to remember to take the calendar to the office. :h2g2:
