Thomas at My Porch

I got one of those now ubiquitous Keep Calm and Carry On posters (with a nice light blue background) about a year and a half ago thinking it would be a good thing to hang in my library. It was only after spending way, way too much money having it framed, that I began to see it everywhere here in the USA. So now I have this expensively framed poster that I no longer want to hang in my library. Since the graphic, and its many variations have become so commonplace it no longer feels special, or heck, even interesting. I have it on my desk at work. If nothing else, it is a good message for dealing with the day to day stress of work.


I know, I got mine a couple of years ago, too, from the actual bookstore that discovered the vintage one from the war, and I'm not pleased to see it turning up on coffee mugs, etc, either. Oh well!

I still like having it on my wall, though, because it's a very helpful message for when dealing with small children.
