Randy's Family History Day - 29 May 2010

This was a day unlike most days - my daughter received her doctoral diploma in a hooding ceremony at the University of LaVerne. Not much genealogy done today!

* Up early, managed to read email and blogs but we left at 8:30 a.m. to go to LaVerne. Noted that Surname Saturday - PUTMAN (Holland > NY > NJ > NY > ONT) (written Friday night) posted.

* Dropped the boys off at our friends house - they were going fishing on the lake today - and headed for LaVerne - got there straight through at 11 a.m (120 miles). Enjoyed a chicken lunch, sat with the musicians and discussed education, and then in the ceremony each of the 50 new doctors were introduced, received their hood, had one minute to say something appropriate, and posed for a picture. It was over at 2:30 p.m. and we stayed awhile for family pictures. Tami gave the funniest talk of the bunch. There are many outstanding students in this class of 50 from the School of Education for Organizational Leadership. We made it home by 5:30 p.m. in time for the Padres game on TV. Noted that Saturday Night Genealogy Fun- your Relationship Calculator posted after noon.

* Lori prepared dinner, we watched the Padres, and the boys came home at 6:30 p.m. We had dinner, then switched between hockey and baseball until both games ended simultaneously. My Padres won 4-2, now 29-20, and two games in front in the NL West. Did the dishes after the game, then played Monopoly with Lucas and Lori.

* Finally on computer at 9 p.m., read everything, checked Facebook, and wrote two posts for Sunday.

Genealogy today was 2.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs and 1.5 hours writing blog posts.
