Did you share, record or write about this day for prosperity?

The day is done, gone is the sun.
 The dark has fallen, the night is calling.

Did you share after dinner, an heirloom that the family should know something about in case your taken away?   They won't keep it if they have no story to know why you even still have it.

Did you take the time to remember past family members and what their Thanksgiving Day may have been like with family?

Be aware, Christmas is coming and maybe you will remember to share some of this with family at that time. Even watching American Pickers, you learn if the seller has a story with the item it generally will generate more interest than a non knowing piece of history.

You may want to capture some of your thoughts on the day to save for the toddlers that ran around today that will not remember you when you are gone. The more sharing, the more caring and remembering tidbits here and there.

Amazing to learn it was 42 degrees coming in from our oldest son's home at 10 pm.

IT SEEMS, someone monkeyed with our System.

Not sure what happened but on my personal blog for names it is nuts compared to what it was.

Nothing comes up for me to post to Google, Facebook, Etc.

Entire site looks crazy.

Up Dates and Changes.....No class LG tonight. BUT...

 Up Dates and Changes.....No class LG tonight.  BUT...

 I wanted to share.  I will send anyone the presentation for tonight that asks for it.
 We are talking about Holiday Letters and Why They Are Important.

 They catalog your year for you and your family and friends. Sharing this with family and friends
 preserves much for your future and your future families.

 Also wanted to say Judy The Legal Genealogist, had an excellent post all should read.

The Legal Genealogist: Those who served in the CCC

Also if you are sharing an article next week at our monthly meeting Jane Strawn and crew need to know for cataloging and getting pictures ready for presentation.    Bring an Antique, Special Item, to meeting sharing the background with the group.   Also sign up at our web page under events.
