Worth repeating: “Abundantly Blessed”

This email message greeted me early yesterday morning. (Click to enlarge for better viewing.) Naturally (before my first sip of coffee), I went to my Ancestry database to identify this “cousin.” OMG, I don’t have the father, grandfather, and great-grandfather in my “tree.” One-thousand-seven-hundred-fifty-eight (1,758) individuals with the surname “Frantz” and this branch of the tree is missing!! Obviously, I had to remedy that error. I see this as a several days project because numerous descendants of Samuel. ~~ I’m abundantly blessed because I have a “forest” of families and “cousins” visit me (via email) and shower me with additional family information.

The Dr. Oz TV program is a “must” in my daily routine. He provides his audience with extremely valuable health news. Dr. Oz has been aired on FOX, on my DISH satellite service. W-e-l-l-l-l-l, that abruptly ceased (and I’m bereft).

Imelda aftermath

According to the TV news media, millions of people are not receiving their “snail” mail. A Post Office processing center in the Houston area was damaged in the recent tropical storm.

The Escapees RV Club has (among other things) a mail service. They have eleven-thousand (11,000) subscribers. Those customers are, likewise, unable to receive their mail (forwarded to locations across the nation).
