Flashback Friday...Disney $$

I just read an article about how entrance to Disney World is just shy of $100.00.

That's quite a bump since my Mom and Dad took me there!

Is there ANYTHING you can get in the park today that is $3.75 cents?

Sure wish I could have Flashbacked Friday the price for The Hayden Crew....

at Flashback prices, we could have made it an all play Family Sunday Dinner at Mickey's house!!

Directions to here:

The thing I remember most about this trip is Mr. Toad's wild ride and getting stuck in "It's a Small World." Did I make this up???

Flashback Friday...A Valentine for a Memory Keeper

Last fall, at a Sunday Dinner...
Luke pulled a "DanceWithNance" of his own and surprised this Memory Keeper with a video he made "just for Nance."

Since there are soooo many of my Favorite Valentines in it...
I thought Valentine's Day was a good day to share it.

So THAT is what it feels like when you watch these shows! 
Sniff, sniff.
Thanks Luke, it is beautiful.

Flashback Friday...Snowed In

The last time I REALLY shoveled snow was 1999.
(Benefits of living in the city and a landlord that hires it out)
Being Snowed in, shoveling out my car and of course it being this time of the year has made me think of the last time I was snowed in at HOME...
winter 1999.

I think Mom and Dad were set to leave for Florida right after Christmas...
but if I remember right, the roads were torn up in the Trailer Park and they delayed their flight for a week....or maybe the snow started falling and that delayed their flight...
I can't remember which came first.
But the snow came and we were stuck.
If you spent winters at this house, you remember how pretty, yet crazy the drifting was in the driveway in between the buildings.
I could not get him to STOP shoveling and come inside...
I think he was worried about getting Mom to Dialysis.

Then a hero in Green showed up and plowed thru the drifts...
making a path out.
If it's the same storm, I remember someone coming to pick her up and we put a step stool out for her to step over the snow and into the car.

Dad was not at all happy that they were here in the snow, instead of there in the sunshine.

But, seriously, if I knew what was about to happen in February...
I would have never taken them to the airport.
I would have rather been snowed in with them ALL winter long.

Ruby Tuesday....Going Digital


I can't even imagine how much pavement and typewriter keys were pounded in all the years of research that Ruby and all the other genealogists did to give us the records that are now being digitized.

I've been working on digitizing Ruby's Book on Grandma Fern's side of the Family as well as digging for more on The Vandercars and of course, I continue to steal info from Cousin Jane, who has put in thousands of hours on the Grandma Bryant's side of the family.



I feel like such a cheater, cause all I do is enter a name and "leafs" show up with hints to follow to add more and more info to the family records.

Thank You to all the REAL genealogists who paved the way for us WannaBes to come in and make it look easy!
