Some random and some not-so-random thoughts on family history.

This Day in History - October 8th.

One hundred and forty one years ago, the great Chicago fire started. I had a collateral line living there at the time, but as far as I can tell, no casualties among them.

Today is also one of my nephews birthday. He is 31! Happy birthday, Patrick!

It was a crazy weekend in our household. We had wet and cool weather which usually is enough to keep me inside. However, since frost is expected I used Sunday to plant my bulbs and finish transplanting iris tubers. After another cold and damp evening and morning, I wonder if the knee will ever recover enough for a normal life.
