I am so sorry to see the calendars are gone. Been following you for years. Was always perfect I could plan ahead. My Co-Workers really loved it because I would use it to plan monthly celebrations. But like everything in life it does not last forever. I just wanted to let you know I know it was work and that I enjoyed it so much and thank you.
