For Pete’s Sake!

…I stayed up real late last night, rooting for the underdog football team. You know, the one that plays on the blue field. After Oaklahoma intercepted a pass and scored what I though was the winning touchdown with a minute remaining, I gave up and went to bed.

It’s Monday, blue Monday

My Dad used to survey the weather each morning and assign a color. Blue and gray were common selections. Actually today is a beautiful day, if chilly. The sun is out and the rain is gone, at least for a while. I’m blue because nothing that I need to have done is done, (and I’m once again writing for a blog that no one reads). I need to get a hold of my self! The chairs are progressing but won’t be done for the party, oh well. Daughters One and…

GeneaGlogger’s 2010 Winter Games, Task 4B

…217;s view, but I tried this anyway. To illustrate, I added a date of birth for every indirect source I had. I also added his children’s births, which don’t show up on an individual’s detail screen. A weakness that I noted was that day, month and year were required. To be honest, the farther in my research I travel, the less sure I am of dates. Since many dates are hard to pin find myself using “about” or…

Treasure Chest Thursday – Aunt Bertha’s Tray

This entry is part 8 of 9 in the series Treasures and Curiosities

…part 8 of 9 in the series Treasures and Curiosities I have had this hammered aluminum tray for a number of years. Aunt Jane, my Dad’s sister gave it to me, along with a story.

Granny’s Land Record Transcriptions

This entry is part 6 of 8 in the series Land Records

I asked permission and added the comment at the end of the post here on my blog. A Facebook comment is soon lost in the feed of status updates, link posts and other miscellaneous information, and I prefer that comments and suggestions are kept with the original content if possible. To paraphrase the comment, it suggested…
