My semi-genealogy days - 27 and 28 August 2013

Even with the grandgirls here, I can usually find some time to read and write, but usually I cannot do much research.  Little girls demand and deserve attention.  Then there were the problems...

1)  Tuesday, 27 August 2013:

*  Read email and blogs, and wrote Tombstone Tuesday - Crittenden at Mount Hope Cemetery in San Diego.  

*  Worked on email and did some online research to help correspondents, and also investigate the appearance of an ancestor in Find A Grave with purported parents.  I'm not sure it's right...I need more evidence.

*  After lunch, wrote Raises US Subscription Price to $99 for 6-months and then More Puzzling Over "Suggested Records."

*  Started off to the pharmacy and grocery store at 3 p.m., but my car wouldn't start.  Took Linda's car, and home by 4 p.m.  Too late to get it fixed at Don's.

*  We left for dinner at Chik-Fil-A at 5 p.m., and home by 6:30 to watch the Padres game.  Went long - almost 4 hours, Pads lost 10-9 to Arizona in 10 innings.

*  Watched Who Do You Think You Are? - pretty good Cindy Crawford episode.

Genealogy today was about 6.0 hours.

2)  Wednesday, 28 August 2013:

*  Read email and blogs, wrote and posted (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 271: Last Day of Spinsterhood.  Called AAA at 9 a.m. to get a charge.  Said battery was dead, so got a new battery.  Works.  That problem solved.

*  discovered the kitchen sink was leaking from the faucet into the area below.  Took everything out, put a pot down, and when Linda came home from swimming, I explained it to her.  She will call the plumber.  Linda took off with the girls to swim at Barbara's and then to lunch.

*  I left at 11:15 a.m. for the bank, and the library.  The CVGS program was today, and Terry Connors knew his material well - good presentation, and some real interesting archival land record books.

*  Home by 3 p.m. in time to greet the plumber who said we needed a new faucet...but he can't install it today.  So tomorrow.

*  Wrote It's Really Not That Easy! about the Cindy Crawford WDYTYA? episode.

*  We ate dinner in the back yard, and then watched the Padres game.  Pads won 5-1 over Arizona.

*  Online to read, then check Facebook and write this post.

Genealogy today was 6.5 hours.
