    Hi Pixie. Hot days in North Carolina. The car gauged the temp at 105 and I had to mow grass b/c the grass was tall enough for tigers to hide in & we are due a week of rain. We need it. Even the weeds are wilting. I hope I did not kill off any brain cells. It may be time to start paying someone to do the grass. I have to have long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, sunglasses, ear protectors, a mask to keep the grass particles out of my lungs, & a big hat. Hot,hot,hot!
    I met a new relative on FB & was able to trace him back to a Methodist Circuit Rider preacher born in 1777. I would like to take it further but it takes a lot of work! The name Erasmus is used a lot in his family. I imagine that is after the Renaissance humanist Erasmus of Rotterdam. The name Maynard is used a lot too. Does anyone know if that name could also be from someone in a religious field?

    I have been very busy with Ancestry but I do not have a lot to
    show for it.It is tough but I still plugged along.

    I am thinking it is long past time for giving up the grass
    cutting and I am sure their must be some young lads who
    would like a job.

    Yes. I wish I could find someone as reasonable as the guy who mows the grass at Mama's house. $30. But he is a family friend. I am going down in early October for a reunion (& to get a bushel of oysters maybe?) My husband would probably mow my grass but he mows off a lot of my bulbs.

    Good afternoon. Time to air out the Refuge. I am brewing a pot of Sumatra Mandeling & sliced a rum flavored pound cake. Something has been eating our bulbs. I am thinking of ordering some daffodils. My favorite supplier is already out of Fortissimo (the big white one with the vivid orange center). How about a collection of pinks, one of butterflies, some split coronas and a fragrant collection? Old Blue would have some to share but she has been lazy for the last few years & the daffodils have dwindled. When it gets cool, I might divide my daylilies and put 50 here plus start a seedling bed. I love Blue Jacket hyacinths too so I might put in a bed of them.

    I nearly always find something when I go on Ancestry but that is because I have 17,300 people in my family tree (forest). I nearly always get a hit. My problem is my direct line. I have as many as 12 generations worked out on some of my lines & it is now harder to find anything new. I need to hang out more with a historian friend. He gave me Edward Marshburn who IS a direct ancestor whose stepmother owned a coffee house in London in the late 1600s. Mrs Lloyd. Lloyds of London started there. Edward wrote a newsletter, a version of which is STILL being written. He got in trouble for some of the views he published in the newletter & had to flee to Virginia. I figure I must have got some of my genes directly from him.
    He also gave me William Bruce Montford, "The Martyr of New Orleans". When I googled that, I found fascinating stories online. He was a child of my ancestor's widow from a later marriage. One of his kin wrote a book in 1835 detailing their relationship with Simon de Montfort, the Crusader.I don't know if any copies exist. I would love to find one.

    Good morning. The temp is in the 70's, which is kind of cool for North Carolina, even in September. I will take it! My husband cut down the red thorny bushes with the narrow red berries. I was hesitant about it but they were a mess, full of honeysuckle, which smells so good but looks neglected. He left several huge gnarled yews and it does look a lot neater. The hummingbirds liked the honeysuckle. One flew almost up to
    me once when I was sitting quietly on the steps. It was a female ruby throat but only the male has the red. She was kind of grey-green. It was still a thrill though.
    Tanganyikan coffee in the Refuge today plus ham biscuits and canteloupe slices. I am fixing to have my second cup which is my limit. (I get kind of wired from caffeine but it is not necessarily a productive kind of energy). During the 4 days my daughter & grandson were gone, I finally found most of my tax papers for 2013 & hope to get the taxes done before October 1. My check register (an essential piece of evidence) was missing. I finally found it tucked into a box of electronic stuff. That has the mark of my 18 month old grandson on it. He is fascinated by cords, remotes, & buttons. We have to keep everything on high shelves & are running out of places plus he is getting long legged (& toothy). He has the most graceful & agile body. The other day he scampered up into my (very high) bed & as I grabbed for him, he did a "crocoile roll" & trapped my arm between him & the hard covered Patricia Cornwell I was reading & skinned a section of my arm. I am too old to be a grandmother to such an active little boy but he is a joy none the less. He stays scuffed up all the time, both knees scabby instead of silky, and he remains fearless of all physical consequences. He was a beautiful baby & remains very attractive & charming. People are always telling my daughter how handsome he is. He has my father's name & he was so good looking that people still tell me, 20 years later, that he was "movie star handsome" & he kind of was. (I have his head shape but that is about all. lol) I will be very pleased if he grows up to look like his great-grandfather but I guess he is only 1/8 of his genes & everything is a roll of the dice when someone has at much variety in the genetic pool as he does. However, he does have his complexion and head & facial shape & his grey eyes show a little brown in them now so maybe. My father had golden brown eyes & so does my brother. Grandmother called them chinquapin colored. Even though she had green eyes & my grandfather had blue green ones, there were brown eyed people (most likely Indians) on both sides so she had three brown eyed children (and two blue & one green). I got the green ones.Two of my cousins on that side have violet eyes which are very lovely. I have never understood genetics all that well but my daughter minored in it.

    Good morning Dee. Help yourself! There is whole milk, cream, & Baily's in the frig (in case you forgot). I hate it when V tries to make coffee for me. He makes it so strong & it makes him sleepy instead of alert.

    Thank goodness for rain. I know you needed it so badly.

    I managed to burn myself (not badly) & lose a slice of ham on the kitchen floor b/c I was trying to do the crossword puzzle while cooking. I need a robotic third hand to keep me out of trouble.
