Kathy, I am thinking this morning....where did September go so quickly? I hope the month of Oct....slows way down. I want a long autumn season girl. Blessings to you and Joe, xoxo, Susie
Yes, September flew by for me also. I hope October and November take their time.
I was just wondering where Pompillius GOT those days he stuck on for January and February, like there was just a DAY closet somewhere in the palace, just for the taking. Thanks to you, I've spent quite a rewarding time in study of Calends, Nones, and Ides---(not always on the 15th of the month, as I'd thought) and it's been quite interesting.At times in history of the Roman Calendar, it seems that the Pontifex could juggle the days at will according to his political agenda---now wouldn't THAT be confusing to know when your birthday was, or what day you had to be at work?What fun, and thanks for the little jaunt into chronology. HAPPY OCTOBER to you, sweet friend.r
Wow, I had no idea I would start a whole study session! Good for you, Rachel. Now I have to go look all of this up.
Thanks for visiting. I love hearing from you. I often reply to your comments, so feel free to check back.
