“When I was a little girl, my grandmother showed me her Birthday Book.
On the left side of each page, there were quotations from the poetry of Alfred Lord Tennyson, one for each day of the year.
On the right side, she wrote the birthdays of her parents and grandparents, and of my brother and me.
My father boldly wrote his own name on January 11, adding 'age 9.'
”I have since entered the birthday of my son, and he will add the special days of his children, the fifth generation.
“It is now a family heirloom, especially meaningful and personal to have this information in the hand-writing of
people who are no longer with us. If there's ever a fire, I'm grabbing this on my way out the door!”
