14 Days off: #7 and 8

Before cancers #2 and #3 were diagnosed in 2008
I was passionately involved in genealogy

Discovering the lives of previously unknown relatives
learning about when and where they lived

Searching for marriage, birth, and death details
and uncovering reasons for divorce

Digging out 80-year old photographs and
planning trips to ancestors' home towns

All of this was 'put on the back burner'
until recently

I'm feeling good and hopeful that I can start planning
those trips to the plains of Kansas
the cemeteries in Denver, El Paso, and Vaughn
the libraries in Salt Lake and Lawrence


the most thrilling adventure of all
meet the cousins I never knew existed
