Sounds of summer

I’ve got the windows open today as well as the door to the sunporch. Hello Springtime! Sunlight is flooding in, children’s voices echo from their backyards, birds sing frivolously, dogs bark, rakes scrape against dead grass and all seems right in the world. I was loading the dishwasher and the... Sign in to see full entry.

Happy Spring to all!

After such a long winter, it seems spring is finally here. The birds are singing their little hearts out and there are tiny green sprouts popping up in the garden. Since this is our first spring in the new house we have no idea what is planted outside but it looks like there'll be lots of nice... Sign in to see full entry.

Fascination with Epitaphs

Epitaphs are defined as: “a commemorative inscription on a tomb or mortuary monument about the person buried at that site.” An epitaph or the engraving on a tomb stone can often tell a lot about the person buried below. Certain ones catch my eye and cause me to pause and reflect upon that unknown... Sign in to see full entry.

Ya gotta love the '50's!

Well it seems that all is well in the world of connections on Facebook and the saga of searching for my lost cousins. The waters have stilled and the reunions are getting deeper and deeper. My quest began when the photo below was emailed to me by another cousin. (I counted last night and I have 42... Sign in to see full entry.

Who let the cat out?

As a follow up to my last entry, it seems I’ve inadvertently let the cat out of the bag by contacting, through Facebook, a couple of cousins I hadn’t seen in years. There has been a family secret floating around for fifty-two years, a sort of ‘does she know/doesn’t she know’ kind of question. While... Sign in to see full entry.

A picture surfaces; relatives reunite!

I’m suffering from eyestrain. This must be just one symptom from a condition caused by too much Facebooking! I’ve been a member of Facebook for less than a week and during this short time, I’ve made some fascinating discoveries. My offspring, nieces, nephews, brothers, cousins and even my own mother...

It’s messing with my head!

I delayed going there but mostly because I thought it was a young person’s thing and I didn’t want to intrude on anyone’s life. But I was finally persuaded and since I’ve joined I’ve been running from one Facebook page to the next, glimpsing in a new way, the lives of my family and friends. There is...

Hands up!

Raise your hand high in the air if you think you might be suffering from cabin fever and have had quite enough of winter! You know the symptoms: Staring out the window, believing you can actually see each flake of snow on the ground melt away Dancing around the house in shorts with the thermostat...

What have you got there?

C’mon, you can tell us. What’s lurking on your night table? What lies in wait for you to seize each night before drifting off to dreamland? I have a stack of them, the ones on the bottom just waiting to be discovered. So come on, tell us! What book are you reading right now? My mother, being the... Sign in to see full entry.

Have you Faced it yet?

It took me quite a while to come face to face, even though I’d heard a lot about it. “You can see all our photos!” my nieces cried. “We can stop sending them to you via email!” They made it sound like email was passé! “And you can connect to so many people!” Did I need to communicate with more...
