Well!!!  Let's just call them what we WANT to, by darn!  In fact--we COULD call them lake gulls or river gulls!!!  They're neat birds, by whatever you call them!!  There's a woman who feeds popcorn to the ones we've been watching at our local park on the Wabash River, and they've gotten to where they know her car!!  Right now, though, the park is closed because of high water, so I hope they're finding free food somewhere else!  They're just gorgeous, and  we've enjoyed watching them!

The ones I have seen were so pretty and white.  They almost sparkled out on snags in the lake.  Sea gulls will always be the first thing that comes to mind when I see them.  Its awful hard to retrain my brain.  It just doesnt do delete and rename very well.  Now what I really hate is when they rename streets and highways on me.

If I remember when I needed Tampa Guys birth certificate we had to write to Harrisburg, Pa.  He was born in Philadelphia.  All records were sent to the state capitol.  I was able to get mine in the city I was born in, Camden, NJ.  Why don't you try both.  Most places have their records on computers now, but some of the old ones may not be yet.

Cloudy today and waiting for rain.

I hope everyone in the North East are ready for this storm.  They are saying the ice and rain is the worst.  Don't worry about the snow.  Keep warm and take care.

Our poor old town, being almost 250 years old, has certainly had their share of street renames!!!

Katy if you have the info for the military, they will surly be able to tell you where he is from or where he joined the military and it is just finding small towns near there.

Here is the doll I have been working on.  I was unable to do 2 things like the pattern.  One is the hair.  It was just to confusing.  2 was the sculptured face.  I envy anyone who can.  Of course I made the doll in thread instead of ww.  I was sooooooooooooooooo big in ww yarn.  Well, here is my doll and here is the original.   This will be going to Peggy's charity which is the Phoenix Children's Cancer Hospital.

Katy have you done searches using any of these genealogy resources available thru the Omaha public library system.  You have to go to library to access Ancestry.  The ones with the cards you can access from home by entering your library card number and pin.  The others you can access by just clicking on the link.

Good Morning.  We have had rain since last night.  I was woken up at 12:30AM because of the thunder.  Scares the you know what out of me when it wakes me up.

Went to the Dr. early this morning, then got a blood test.  Today was heart Dr. for DH, tomorrow is the regular Dr. for both of us.

Hope everyone is doing ok.  Have not seen the news yet, so not sure where that storm in.

Be careful and stay warm. Have a great day.

more dead ends  i looked at marriage certs, or tried to but i dont know the year or really the state  could have been here, but i think they met in wash dc where mom was a government clerk of some sort in the office where they transcribe things to braille for the blind  she said once she could still read braille, and could still type it too if she had access to a braille typewriter   after  all those years spent there   he of course was probably then in the army but   without dates or locations its a job  something i waited too long i guess to try to do ah well lol 

yeah i might write the army and ask them for some dates i guess   

sun is out nice and bright today!  hope the snow all melts!! 

other than trying to finish  my series on netflix i really dont have any plans i did finish another scarf this am though  this one i started a bit different like arlene did i started with a chain as long as i needed, then  sc  along and 3 sc in the end for turning and in the end, turned and went down opposite side of the scarf and just continued both ends turning and both long sides till it reached 6 inches wide  then i ended it off!! worked  i didnt round mine off like snowbear did i left them square ended but a rectangle lol  so that worked out well   i dont know how to round the ends off like she did but love that look!! i will try another soon and see if i cant figure out how to round the ends lol  

you know i do not have a calendar lol  i rely on my puter to show me day and d♥ate and i use the memo thing there but we never bothered to get a reg paper calendar at the new year  i will have to get on somewhere we should be able to get one at least from the 2 banks we deal with huh lol  i wonder if i call them ans ask to send one out if they would if not handy could pick it up i guess   well reak=lly all for now ill catch up more maybe later  take care all ♥

wow both dolls are too cute lol  i like both mj!!

oh another day or days of snow i guess for this week  im getting sick of snow ya know    

other than the stupid weather all here is normal for now so will  just kick back and find something that i can do i guess   i think we are making potato soup today the taters are already cut so we will do that later on, putting it together  sounds good for another snowy day 

i watched a you tube  video on secret places in some houses and   they were amazing.. drawers that opened on steps  undersides of a staircase, , and hidey holes big enough for a safe room  was really interesting this afternoon i might watch a couple more episodes of season six of Dexter  hes a serial killer and also he works at the police station in miami, as a blood guy specialist forensics   guy  very interesting  started out he only killed bad people that killed other innocents, now its getting a bit more cos his wife was killed by another uncaught serial killer, so hes going after him  he has the inside track as he is the first to know the blood dna of the killer  his sister is a detective and i fear they will soon clash at the station hes almost got busted a couple of times, but being with the force he has  miraculously gotten out of tight places   and, she remains blinded as to how killers keep getting themselves killed and why? and by whom   turns out his brother was a killer too so dexter had to kill him  anyway its a good story but could have lived without the sister cops potty mouth     

           

well so it goes as it snows ol  take care to all  :yes

Be prepared for the military.  When my brother was in, they had to send for his records, the Dr. said he was in great shape for a man his age.  They sent my Dad's, instead of my brother's records.  Dad was Valentine John and my Brother was John Valentine.

Good Morning everyone.

Hope everyone had a nice Valentine's Day.  We had a Dr. appointment (not good A1C readings 7.5 for me 7.7 for DH), then spent the day not doing much.  Besides it being Valentine's Day it was our 48th Anniversary.  We had steak and lobster tails for dinner.  We don't go out, as there are to many going out for dinner.

Today I want to get back to my crocheting and doing other things that were let go yesterday.

Have a fun day off to make breakfast.

Sorry I've been absent, it's been a heck of a week. We've gotten a lot more rain this year, and this week even more than the last year and our basement flooded twice. Put out the pilot light on the furnace and the water heater, so we've been dealing with that mess, along with the fuel pump going out in the truck. I hope everyone is doing well, and have a wonderful night.

Hello Everyone, hows your weather?  ours is messy-:2snow-was snowing and raining earlier.  Here are some pictures of hats I made with yarn that was given to me.  This lady who didn't know me, is cleaning out her stash and sent yarn and fabric to me thru my best friend.  Thought I'd work on hats for the school where my daughter works.  She mentioned earlier this winter they needed hats.  I'm always late to the party so  I'll have them ready for next winter.❄️

Hello,

I'm way behind again but thought I would pop in and say hello.

Mary Jo, the doll is adorable.

Lise, the hats look great.

I'm sure I've missed a bunch of post but I hope everyone is doing well.

Funnymom8 love the hats.  They are so bright and pretty.

Not much going on here.  It is suppose to start warming up, but I will believe it when the Florida State Fair is over.  We always have bad weather then.  Cold and most times rainy.

Next is the Strawberry Festival.  Then Spring Break.

I had to laugh the other day.  Governor Cuomo is saying the Florida is stealing people from NY.  Just because we have not state tax, or city tax only sales tax and that amount depends on the county you live in.

Looks like it is going to be a beautiful day.  I think I will go see what is in store for the day.

Hello, 

I was up and out to church and a quick stop at the grocery store this morning. My son-in-law was here waiting to drop off my granddaughter when I got home, she is napping right now so it's quiet here. Tomorrow both daughters, 3 grandkids and I are going to the renaissance festival, not sure if my son-in-laws are going. That's about it for my corner of the world.
