A Quick Note

Just a quick note to say that I have taken down my genealogy (surname) database due to security concerns. This has broken many links on my website which will take a long time to repair. In the meantime, you can find a copy of my genealogy database at http://sites.rootsmagic.com/ctgc/index.php

Family Pet Friday: Feral

Feral is our newest furry family member adopted from the wild. Yes, we really did name him that. He is a sweetheart, but he lives up to his name by leaving us dead rodents to find.

Family Pet Friday: Inky & Buffy

This photo was taken in the early 1970’s. I don’t remember our dog Inky and this is the only good picture I have of him. I have another one that is so dark all you can see are his glowing eyes. He died when I was five or six, I think, so this photo is before 1974. My grandmother’s cat Buffy was less than 5 years old here and lived to be about 18 years old. He was always a grumpy old cat, at least to us kids. I’m sure we deserved every hiss.
