My family is known for trying to assemble a new product or use a new item without reading the instructions. We live by the motto, “When all else fails, read the instructions.” Sometimes though, the instructions don’t help.

While cleaning out some files recently, my mom came across this perpetual calendar-bookmark, small enough to fit in your pocket or wallet. This one will take you from 1753 to 2059. “To use: Start on this side:”

The last step is to  “Remember this letter – and turn over” – to see the right calendar. This is the tricky part.

Enough said. 🙂
