My Semi-Genealogy Weekend - 3-4 June 2017

This was not a big genealogy weekend.  Not much research, some blog post writing, and Padre games.  Jamboree is next week and I need to get ready for that.

1)  Saturday, 3 June:

*  Dropped Linda at the Y, home to read a bit, then off to my Men's breakfast at Callenders at 8 a.m.  Picked Linda up at 9:30 and we were home by 9.45 a.m.

*  Noted that Surname Saturday - HOSKINS (England to colonial New England) posted, added to the Best Of post, and answered email.  Rested my eyes for a bit at my desk.

*  We left after 11 a.m. for In 'n' Out for lunch, then took the trolley to Petco Park for the Padres game.  We were in our seats by 12:40 p.m.  Padres lost in a dismal game 10-1 to the Rockies, breaking the 5 game winning streak.  We are now 4-4 in attendance.  Padres are 23-34 on the season.  We took the trolley, and stopped at El Pollo Loco for dinner.  We were home by 6 p.m.

*  Online, I wrote the Ancestry and FamilySearch posts, noted that Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Which Ancestor Moved the Furthest? posted, and added to the Best Of post.  Checked Facebook, and tried to get a motel room for Thursday night.  Expedia wouldn't let me reserve for some reason at the preferred hotel.  Genealogy this day was 4.0 hours.

2)  Sunday, 4 June:

*  Read email and blogs while watching Meet the Depressed.  We went to church at 9:30 and home by 11:30.

*  Finished up the Best of the Genea-Blogs - 28 May to 4 June 2017 post, and started the new one.  Looked for a document for Amanuensis Monday for next week.  Reserved a hotel in Glendale and Expedia took my money.  Whew.  It's only 2-3 miles from the Marriott.  

*  Went in at 1:40 p.m. to watch the Padres game, took a nap in the recliner, and read the paper.  Padres lost 3-1 to the Rockies so now 23-35 on the season.  

*  Came in to the computer at 4:50 p.m. to write this week's Amanuensis post.  Noted that Added or Updated Databases at - Week of 28 May to 3 June 2017 posted.

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to watch TV and eat dinner.  Online at 6:20 p.m. to read, then transcribed a deed for next week.  Started on the CVGS newsletter and got it 70% finished.  

*  Checked Facebook, wrote this post, and I'm done.  Genealogy today was 5.5 hours.
