Are There Other Things?

Well, it's been over a month since I've posted here. The heading of this post hearkens back to my days on the faculty at Indiana University, when the chairman of our department would say at monthly department meetings, after he had talked about what he wanted to discuss, "Are there other things?"

There are always lots of other things. I haven't posted on the blog lately, but I have been writing. My current project is to write a letter, however brief (and many of them are quite brief), to dear little Magnolia. I'm going to try to keep that going for a year, at least. I've only missed one day since she was born on October 22.

I devoutly wish that some of my ancestors had done something similar for me. I have done a lot of genealogic research, but I would love to know more about what was going on the in world of my ancestors and what they thought about it.

David,
What a great idea it is to write to your little Magnolia. I should do that for my Bailey Rae & Aubrey Jane. Are you sending the letters in batches or saving them in a special place?
