Wednesday in Nashville

…ng! We don’t often have time on a trip to do something other than deal with photos, or reserach genealogy, our other major sideline. But today, to get some much needed exercise, where headed for the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere. They have some species that we don’t see at home at the Detroit Zoo, so it will be a great walk.

The Incredible Shrinking Task – and Another Correction

…ogy society project. We are also sliding down hill to my husband’s retirement. I recently wrote about affidavits files to correct or change information on the birth records of Eliza J.

…d clear the drive, but we didn’t get down to see Summertown Road at the Huron Valley Eagles. Darn. We watched the Wings, and they were horrible. Just horrible. Sunday came. I started to paint, but my masking tape was missing. I was annoyed, but I did the ceiling, which didn’t require tape, and also another coat on the walls, also not requiring tape. I attended scanfest, a geneabloggers internet gathering. Had a nice time, chatted…
