Curiosity

Aha. After I wrote about Sherman Malcolm below, I decided I would check the US Census for his name and perhaps find out other information. Gee, I wish Mother were alive  because I could call and tell her Sherman was born in Edgar, Illinois in March of 1865 and Sara was not his first wife. […]

Sherman Malcolm

January 30th, 2011 · 1 Comment

Whoever thought Sherman Malcolm would be mentioned on a blog in 2011. He may have known my mother existed since she was born a year before he died. It’s a complicated story because I have bits and pieces, and as far as I know, Grandma and Mother only knew little bits. Sherman Malcolm was married […]

I have to rethink this bad movie thing

January 30th, 2011 · No Comments

I fell asleep during Mega Pythom vs. Gatoroid and missed the part where the two heroines were eaten by the creatures that championed. There are too many movies in this style. And, when I think about it, I never watched the King Kong and Godzilla movies. I have to take that back; my dad and […]

My reputation is at stake

January 29th, 2011 · No Comments

I walked through the living room just a few moments ago and realized Der Bingle and Cameron were watching a movie on Syfy about mega piranhas and paused long enough to determine the movie was a real bang your head on the wall experience. Uttering panicked words about my reputation for watching bad movies of […]

From my view on the Pioneer Woman fringe

January 28th, 2011 · 5 Comments

I remember reading The Pioneer Woman a few years back, when I saw pictures of countryside and cattle and horse activities that were new to me. It was interesting  and it was obvious she wasn’t lacking for anything. It was a place of no worries. Oh, I figured that from time to time there would […]

I missed yesterday

January 28th, 2011 · No Comments

It wasn’t my fault that I didn’t get on this site yesterday and post this photo of my grandmother and several other grandmothers from Kingman, Indiana. No, my mind and fingers were kidnapped by a computer game – one about finding a lot of clues to get to the bottom of what happened at Ravenhearst […]

Lana and me

January 26th, 2011 · No Comments

This picture has been put through the editing process to smudge over some creases. I found it in a plastic insert in my dad’s wallet. I think he carried it for a long, long time. Lana is nine months younger than I, but look, she is taller and her legs already leaner. Here’s a factoid: […]

A birthday in France – 1944

January 25th, 2011 · 2 Comments

My Aunt Geraldine had a reputation for being dominant and domineering and bossy and with a hot temper to boot. A couple of my cousins called her “The Commander”. She was my father’s oldest sister. As I have been reaching into boxes and bags and letters come out to a young soldier overseas, I have […]
