Calendar for February 1971


All year long I shall think the words
And whisper them to you.
Then when I write them on my heart
You will know that they are true:
I LOVE YOU!
I may be red or blue or green,
On rainy days I’m often seen.
Sometimes you open me up wide;
Again, I travel at your side.
What am I?
An umbrella
What vegetable is like a sad story? Onion. It makes you cry
What animal keeps the best time? A watch dog
John: I added these figures 10 times. Teacher: Good boy, John. John: Here are the 10 answers.
How is a snowman like a box of cereal? They both contain many flakes
Why is the figure 9 like a peacock? Because it would be nothing without its tail
What is more amazing than a horse that counts? A spelling bee
