Hellooooo my people. I have missed you all dearly. I was way, way, way under the weather but things are finally looking up and I do believe I am going to live.
During my recuperation, I managed to catch up on all of the episodes of “24” that I had TiVoed. Have I mentioned before that I love me some TiVo? Yum! Anyway…I have now made it through an entire day (24 hours) of Jack and I have yet to see him: 1. potty 2. eat or 3. sleep. Is this man a robot? Truly, I want to know. Seriously though, the only way I can watch this show without totally screaming out loud, “You have got to be kidding me!” is to try to forget that everything is happening in just one hour and that the entire season takes place in just one day. Good Lord! Who lives like that? It boggles the mind don’t cha know. Still, you gotta love Jack.
I have started transcribing the photos I took at St. Mary’s Grove Free Will Baptist Church Cemetery. This time, since I have photos and not video to accompany the text, I intend to link the appropriate photo to each name. How cool is that? I’ll be working on it in addition to everything else so it will take time to make it to the site. Patience, please. In the meantime, if you have a request for someone you think may be buried there, drop me a line and we’ll see if I got the photo when I was there.
I am hoping to have some really good news in the next day or so concerning a possible genealogical discovery of mine. I think I may have figured something out…could I be any more vague…that will answer a lot of questions for a lot of folks diggin’ up bones in the Holmes family tree. Keeping my fingers crossed. I’ll let you know as soon as I hear anything.
I have been tasked by my Great Aunt Rebeth to put together a book of her ancestry and descendants. I have decided to go whole hog with it and present her with a bound product, including photos and a few other extras, at our annual Family Reunion in Coats, NC in August. It will also serve as a present for her 95th birthday. I am having a ball putting it together and working with various family members gathering needed info on her descendants. She is such a sweet lady and I am honored to do this for her.
More later. Much to do. Have a great day.
