Today's 100 words:
I've always wanted to write a family history memoir. For years I've been working on and off to transcribe cassette tapes my dad made of some of the memories he has of growing up and working as a logger in the days when horses were as common as trucks out in the woods. Now I'm about ready for my mother's story of growing up a country girl, then a city girl, then a country girl again. The history of how these two very different people met, fell in love, and married is what I hope to document for future generations.
You are so lucky to have those tapes!ReplyDelete
I know! He made them for me a few years ago in the hope that I would write his stories down. After listening to the tapes, I have even more questions for him now. I guess I'll be doing a lot of phone interviews with my parents!Delete
That's so great to have tapes! And what a lovely story this would make :) I'm a new follower of yours, I found you over at the A - Z Challenge :) Nice to meet you!ReplyDelete
It's great to meet you, too--and thanks for the follow! I followed you back. :) I have Scandinavian ancestry and love the focus of your blog! I'm really looking forward to the A-Z Challenge. :)Delete
Family history can be really interesting, and scary. I found out one my ancestors died by drowning in a canal. He was on his way home drunk.ReplyDelete
On a different subject, I've given you a lovely blogger award, so come on over to claim the prize..of a jpeg picture.
Thank you for the award, Martin! I'm sorry I've been so bad about completing award requirements--I'll try to catch up soon--but I really appreciate your thinking of me!Delete
