On the Road

Today I'm in the Midwest, in the middle of a week-long trip. I brought my granddaughter back to Ohio to spend the week with my sister, and I am spending the time researching genealogical and historical records in dusty old libraries and graveyards in Tennessee and North Carolina. (And, truth be told, I'm having a grand time doing it. I find this type of pursuit very refreshing.)

I hope you are having a great summer and enjoy the tips this week.
