#this is a subset of a larger data frame and I am okay with subsetting it as there are redundant time stamps, but I would like to create a zoo object out of this and I am having a hard #time figuring out how to do this the date structure is year and then month

x <- structure(list(Yearmonth = structure(c(12L, 24L, 1L, 13L, 14L,
3L, 15L, 4L, 16L, 5L, 17L, 6L, 18L, 7L, 19L, 8L, 20L, 9L, 21L,
10L, 22L, 11L, 23L), .Label = c("2006-02", "2006-03", "2006-04",

"2006-05", "2006-06", "2006-07", "2006-08", "2006-09", "2006-10",
"2006-11", "2006-12", "2007-01", "2007-02", "2007-03", "2007-04",
"2007-05", "2007-06", "2007-07", "2007-08", "2007-09", "2007-10",
"2007-11", "2007-12", "2008-01"), class = "factor"), Month = c(1L,
1L, 2L, 2L, 3L, 4L, 4L, 5L, 5L, 6L, 6L, 7L, 7L, 8L, 8L, 9L, 9L, 10L, 10L, 11L, 11L, 12L, 12L)), .Names = c("Yearmonth", "Month" ), class = "data.frame", row.names = c(NA, 23L))

#thanks Stephen

Let's not spend our time and resources thinking about things that are so
little or so large that all they really do for us is puff us up and make us
feel like gods. We are mammals, and have not exhausted the annoying little
problems of being mammals.
