Tuesday’s Tools – Saving an Image from Seeking Michigan

Once in a while, when I feel like it, in very irregular fashion, but almost always on Tuesday, I will tell you how I do something related to my genealogy. If this little effort helps

This entry is part 4 of 9 in the series Treasures and Curiosities

…entry is part 4 of 9 in the series Treasures and Curiosities The other day I got side tracked from a little job making a couple of pairs of PJ pants for GD1, and cleaned off the shelves in the back storage room. In the process I also sorted patterns, but that is another story. A few things surfaced, which I photographed for Treasure Chest posts. I remember this shoe shine kit well. I have no idea how I ended up with it, but it contains enough…

Moving Right Along

…I can remember, Keep Your Eyes On The Prize. Interesting, unsourced info on WikipediA on that. To end this little evaluation, here is the song that that saying is based on. This a super cool version from The Nashville Bluegrass Band. That is Mike Compton singing and playing mandolin. I had to look twice, usually he is wearing a T-shirt and bib overalls. I love this video, for the song, the excellent job done on it, and for the camera shots of…

Only In (Genealogy) Oz

New filing system

…e who devote substantial time and energy to genealogy were in a car, headed for the Library of Michigan. One of these people actually earns a living in genealogy, one devotes hours and hours to the cause as a volunteer. I guess the rest of us are researchers of sorts, but all have devoted or are devoting some time and energy to societies and causes related to genealogy. Now D1 has always called my genealogy society “The Retired Librarians

Cat boxes

Unpleasant subject–well in this case, funny. If you own cats, you will eventually have a litter box. In the good old days, we lived in a rural environment and it was safe to let our cats outside.

Let’s get started….

…d I’d make them and mail them next week. Our granddaughters were here for 4 nights last week; we took them to their new home on Sunday. On night three, granddaughter One had a hard time. She is especially sensitive and she missed her daddy and mommy. She cried for quite a while, no matter that it was only one more night, and so on. Finally I did what I’ve always done when faced with a crying child. I just held her, rocked her, and told her I…

Granny’s Family Christmas

…In case you didn’t guess, the granddaughters are here, and I couldn’t blog much, even if I wanted to. But they are too much fun. It’s 40 degrees here, very unusual. We’re making pie and rolls and then we’ll make the dressing for tomorrow’s turkey. The presents under my tree and killing them, they want to open them NOW. Tomorrow will have to do. See you all on Monday!…
