The envelope has been sitting on my desk for a while and this morning, while waiting for the computer to update, I looked at it and did a double take. File under "O" for Oops!

I believe there have been two Feb 30th; one in Sweden and one in Russia during periods when they were switching calendars.

Sweden 1712. Russian attempt of a new calendar in 1930 and 1931 but that did not work out.

My only sarcasm was writing "south of your border" due to the fact during the periods the magnetic north pole is within a particular country all other places are south of that location as well as that Canada claimed beginning in 1907 that its territory ran up to and included a portion on the non-magnetic north pole.

The" dictionary" definition of February 30 is "sarcasm that never happens." My error was in not making it clear that I was not responding to you.

Love that cancel - the rhubarb festival in Shedden is a great event, if you happen to be over that way in June. Get to it every couple years.

I guess they decided they did not want to adopt the Julian calendar.

It could just as easily be the 2nd day of the 30th month. Never know!

Neat find though :) I could see the 29th but this makes me wonder if someone wasn't zoned out for two straight work shifts lol. Oops indeed!
