Helen is Found!

A couple of days ago, I noticed that a check I’d written to the Social Security Administration for the original application of one Helen Potwine, born August 28, 1891 and died in September, 1966.

Good Old-Fashioned Hard Work???

If you’ve been retired for a while, and I have, it gets harder to focus and accomplish tasks. At least it has for me. That is because time is available. Lots of it. It is easy to forget that it (the time, that is) continues to march on, even when nothing is done. And, there …

OK — Whatever

I usually don’t write anything on weekends, but I couldn’t resist this. When I quit working a few years ago, I intended to spend most of my free time on genealogy. And, for the most part, for about 3 years I kept up pretty well. But, this past year a lot of my time has …

Soap ends

What in the world do you do with the ends of your bars of soap? I don’t really think there is much soap in the soap. Not so long ago, if you took a bar of soap out of it’s wrapping it would dry out and harden up. I always brought them home and stored …
