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

Memorial Day

I am very fortunate. I have to go back to 1863 to find an ancestor who gave all for his family and country. Although both grandfathers fought in World War I, and my dad in World War II, they came home.

So this is for all the heroes of our Country's wars - those who didn't return. They are what Memorial Day is all about.

It Was Supposed to be ....

A vacation. Time away from home to enjoy family in New York state. Maybe a little research on the way home in Lexington, Kentucky.

What it turned out to be: Negotiation of purchase of property in the car on the the first day. I seriously don't remember the drive up because I kept waiting for return emails. Texts between younger daughter and I on negotiating strategy.

And: Endless driving. We spent three days getting to our destination. Since DH and I can no longer spend long days driving, we took three days there and three days back.

Finally: It was a good trip. We enjoyed the visit with DH's cousin and his family in the Buffalo area. The driving, not so much.
