Please hold off on ordering the 2020 Balloon Juice calendars. There has been some sort of hiccup with Cafe Press, and it appears that all calendar orders have been cancelled and refunds issued. We will update tomorrow after we have talked to Cafe Press customer service.
The 2020 version of the Pets of Balloon Juice calendar is available!
Beth took John’s idea of including an In Memoriam component this year and made the calendar something truly special.
We have memories of General Stuck, efgoldman, Schlemezel, greennotGreen, and Scotian.
There’s even a picture of Charlie, along with the comment where the General first announced his new companion. Check out January online, and I think you’ll be hooked. Who knows, you might even find a fuckem from efgoldman, if you look hard enough.
Some of you will even find your own nym somewhere in the calendar, in conversation with some of the beloved jackals who have gone on ahead.
You can find the link to order the calendar – and all the ordering details – in the blue box, upper right, just underneath the balloon guy. On mobile devices, the calendar link is the third item in the hamburger.
If you’re like me and you didn’t get your pet photos in (curses!) I think you’re still gonna want to have this calendar. I’m getting one for myself, for sure.
I am also ordering calendars for Wolvesvalley, satby, Something Fabulous, Maze Dancer, Albatrossity, and Anne Laurie – as a small token of my thanks to each of you for your contributions to the new site. You all know what you did. (So please send me your addresses so I can order your calendars.)
Beth really outdid herself with this one, and kudos to John for such a lovely idea.
Update: If you discover a problem with your pet’s photo or name, please speak up in the thread and wait to order – if there was an error on our part, it can be fixed and THEN you can order your calendar.
