Old age creeps up on us. Here is one old lady!! Yesterday, the old PVC pipe failed and “water, water, everywhere.” I’ve suspected my old, old Canon camera was going to fail any day. I suspected I’d need to buy a new camera (because I love to take pictures for my blog). Moments ago, a neighbor stopped by to give me their Nikon camera. They say they don’t use and won’t use. I am so blessed with excellent neighbors!!
Inflation?? More than $300.00 and no alcoholic beverages, candy, chips, Dr. Pepper, ice-cream, meat, or yum-yum snack foods. I hate Walmart but I shopped there because it is close to the Post Office. Imagine this: There were things on my shopping list that I did not find at Walmart!
The Post Office was the destination for the outing. The Big–Y–DNA test is so valuable (in my humble opinion), I didn’t want to trust putting it in my mailbox (with the flag up). I drove to the P.O., parked, and walked indoors to drop the package in the slot.
Major documentation transaction!!
Yesterday, I was certain of this “cousin marriage.” However, I had a nagging feeling the individuals required a lot more research and documentation. Today, it required hours of intensive research (and documentation) and it was NOT a cousin marriage. Personally, I do not “cut corners” (and copy from another Ancestry member’s family tree). Those who do… complicate things for those of us who don’t.
More than one-hundred folks added… while correcting the misinformation. Note that my database now has fifty-thousand individuals.
…and not watermelon.
My trailer home was miserably HOT and I was forced to turn on the air-conditioner. So I am “sick and tired” and hot!! I’ve made a doctor’s appointment but the only one available is weeks away. (I’m not complaining. To mimic Jack Webb of Dragnet TV programming “Just the facts, Ma’am, just the facts.”)
Not in my family tree!! Other folks with Ancestry family trees copy from someone else and they only have one or two sources. I exhaust every resource for additional information. For that reason, I spend long hours documenting… and it is exhausting!!
“The old lady” is “sick and tired.” I’m like a hamster running on the wheel and getting nowhere. We had another rainstorm and things got wet again!! Items were “airing out” (drying) on the porch when they should have been in a dryer location. I can’t have “everything” inside my trailer home!! Too many things… at the present time.
