Wow. Has it really been that long?

One year ago I opened my first wordpress site and what a wonderful journey it’s been. For those of you I follow and those that follow me, please let me give you a warm on-line hug and tell you how much you’ve meant to me. Thank you for all the comments, the words of commiseration and support. Thanks for laughing at my stupid jokes and liking my silly stories. Thank you for coming back, when I’ve been a wayward friend.

Thank you, too, for sharing your stories, your ideas and journeys. I’ve enjoyed reading your poetry, posts, and ogling over your pics. I feel like I made some cherished friends. If only I were rich and could travel the world to bring that hug directly to you.

It’s been a difficult few months for Sue, with family loss in April and bringing my mom home in June. It’s been tough taking care of a proud, feisty, lady that doesn’t want to be dependent on another for care. I know it’s been hard on her, too, being uprooted from her apartment and living in limbo until we get her settled.

But I can’t complain. I won’t. I love her too much.

I’ll end this quickie post with a little pic of a spider web trapping some rain and some of my favorite pics from the past year.

I hope you all know how much you all mean to me.

Cheers-

Sue

An amazing piece of history…

newly released 1940 census – from Northfield

I realize this image is blurry and unreadable, but to me it’s an amazing piece of my family history. Listed on this one page from the 1940 census is the following: on the top is Henry and Rosa Blaine, my great-grandparents, a few lines down is Freddie Drinkwine and his family (Rosa’s brother and clan), and down from there is Henry and Mary Ferry – my grandparents. Below them is Henry Ferry, my dad.

Incredible.

There’s a good reason I moved from Northfield. Our family desperately needed a new gene pool to tap from…
