My Semi-Genealogy Friday - 17 July 2015

The day sort of turned around after lunch...we went car shopping.

*  Read email and blogs, added to the Best Of post, and wrote 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks - Week 81: #96 Martin Carringer (1758-1835).

*  Decided I'd better find my flash drive and put it in a safe place.  Not found, where did it go?  Checked all of the likely places - pants pocket, floor, under papers, laptop bag, etc.  Found more flash drives, and finally found one I could use.  Added the OASIS talks and the RootsMagic-to-go and my database, sans media.  Tested everything too.

*  Answered several emails, did some research from links provided by others, and wrote More Online Information About the Squire William Sever House in Kingston, Mass.  

*  After lunch, decided we had better start car we left at 12:30 p.m. and went down to Main Street.  We ended up with a 2015 Nissan Altima 2.5 S, silver outside, charcoal inside.  Had to go through the deal, then the financial contract, and finally home by 5:30 p.m.  It always seems to take 4-5 hours no matter what.  

*  Had dinner, then wrote the Surname Saturday post, answered more email, and went in at 7:10 to watch the Padres game.  Read the paper, then my book, and watered the front plants and washed dishes.  Padres beat Rockies 4-2, so now 42-49 and maybe slowly climbing out of the slump.  Hope springs eternal...

*  Online at 10:25 p.m. to write this post, add to the Best Of post, and check Facebook.  Genealogy today was 5.5 hours.
