So, here is a little heads-up. I've been doing a little family research and looking at old pictures. I absolutely love looking back and seeing snapshots in time. Things that may have seemed inconsequential at the time can mean everything to your kids and grandkids while they are trying to piece together the story of your life. Maybe this blog can serve as something of a history for later. I will do all of the sitting and story-telling I can with the kids, but either through loss of memory (me) or lack of interest at a certain age (the kids), I'm sure a lot of it will be lost. So, on occasion, I'm going to write a story about what I thought was an interesting time. I have quite a few pictures and will do my best to dig them out and pair them with some of the stories I hope these yarns are as interesting as I remember them to have been.
I'm finding that as I construct my first story, it is quite a long one. I am trying to make it as interesting as possible. I'm sure my followers will be doing some skimming on some of these. :)
