Ruth's Genealogy

“And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.”

Not much genealogical research, at least not in the traditional use of the term…
The here and now is always more important. By that, I mean… my living ancestors! My dad is doing very well after his triple bypass of a month ago. I went to visit him in Louisiana the weekend before Thanksgiving. I went to physical therapy with him one day, and was very impressed. He walked on the treadmill for 18 minutes at a pretty good pace, then rode the stationary bicycle, then a bit of work with weights, all under close supervision, of course. The next day was Saturday, and he didn’t go to PT because of the weekend. So we went for a walk instead. As we walked up a hill heading back to his house, he asked me, “Am I walking too fast for you?” This from a 78-year-old man who is one month post triple bypass surgery! Anyway, he is doing great, and I am very thankful!
I have been very busy with Thanksgiving and watching my granddaughter this past week, so I haven’t done any research. I continue to check my Bloglines account daily, keeping up with reading all those genealogy blogs. They are a fantastic source of inspiration and ideas for research!
Other than the above, I have continued to work on the Lampasas County Marriage transcriptions. And I am always on the look-out for any new clues or pieces to the puzzle!
I may not get much more work done from now until New Years, as this is such a busy time of the year. But, you never know…
