The past year has been full of neat genealogy happenings! I asked several family members if I might borrow their older photographs so that I might scan them, or I’ve asked if they might scan and send me digital copies, and so it has been ‘raining’ photographs and memorabilia!
My expectations were that I might be loaned 3, 4, maybe even as many as ten photographs at a time.
I certainly didn’t expect one cousin to bring a six inch thick folder of photos that took hours to scan, nor a California cousin I’ve never met who sent pages of photocopied photos, and last week, my cousin and her son came by to visit, and he brought a large box, too heavy for me to lift, chock full of pictures and albums!
Excerpted from a 70+ year old newspaper clipping:
Before I heard the doctors tell,
The dangers of a kiss
I had considered kissing you -
The nearest thing to bliss.
But now I know biology
And sit and sigh and Moan,
Six million mad bacteria -
And I thought we were alone.
Isn’t that a hoot!
