A little of this and that

Lisa and I have been working on her family genealogy and she’s been amazed at some of the information we’ve been able to find online. Today we had no appointments so we went to the cemetery to put flowers on my Dad’s grave and then out to lunch. 


After we got back, I did a 5.5 mile walk. While the Nolan Trail is nearby, I really prefer to walk out the door rather than having to drive somewhere to walk so I save the trail for the really hot days and the other days, I walk to the Lion’s Bridge and back. 


Keep your fingers crossed for me — Keith is flying home tonight just ahead of Tropical Storm HERMINE. It’s supposed to cross the state north of us but I’m flying home from VA early Friday morning and Chris, Becky, and Rae are supposed to be driving to Tampa on Friday too. There’s already some local flooding according to the news but I’m hoping none of our travel plans get interrupted.

    I hope the trip home is safe for all of you. I am strange, but graves are symbols I don’t understand, but I am happy for you that you got to visit your father’ grave.

    I have been watching the FLA weather as my 91 yr old lives in Largo in a mobile home. Also, watching Hawaii as our son lives in Honolulu and he is supposed to fly to SFO on Friday night. Just want everyone to be safe!

    I love the shamrock on your dad’s marker. What a sweet personal touch. I have always loved wandering through cemeteries and looking at at grave markers, even when I don’t know who the deceased are. Do you do your family research through Ancestry.com? I have contemplated joining but am not sure I have the time to invest right now. I have retired from the school system but am caring for my-four-month old granddaughter full time. Safe travel to all your family.
