Mom and Dad had antecedents on both sides of that bloody conflict. Counties were split, towns were split, and families were split. It was never as simple as being the north versus the south.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

No more blogging here until after Christmas; I’m not traveling anywhere; I just have much unfinished business to attend to.

Be safe. Thanks for stopping by.

Warmest regards,

That cat does not appear impressed with your lack of blogging.

Hey James, meet Stick the cat, AKA Snake the cat. Stick is a rescue that my Daughter picked up... then pawned her off on me. Stick got sick a few years ago and ... well, she cost a bundle to keep alive. She's a good friend and as you well know good friends are priceless...
