Instead of my usual Friday housecleaning, I got out of the house and went to lunch with my aunt and a cousin. My aunt is a wonderful lady 84 years young who is and has been a special person in my life. She was my mother's only sibling. Aunt B is that kind of person who has never met a stranger in her life! She has a wonderful personality and in spite of many health issues in recent years, she keeps on going and going. She was going to work at the library after we had lunch today. She helps others with genealogy. Aunt B has been very interested in our family history for several years now and I think you could say that is her main passion...genealogy...besides her family, of course.
That is my aunt B on the right and cousin on the left and they gave me permission to post their picture.
We had the delicious lunch special which was a grilled chicken salad...can't think of the name...good conversation with Aunt B talking about family history and she gave Cousin and I some pictures she had copied. Aunt B works very hard gathering and sharing information but she has a ball doing it!
The rest of the evening plans were canceled due to the storm that blew through here. Hubby is still out working, some rural electric lines were down. And that gives me time to get a post up and visit blogs.
This is the storm cloud that formed near Columbia, part of the storm we experienced. This was sent to my daughter by a friend of hers. I'm not sure who took it so I can't give credit. Fantastic shot, isn't it? I think this is called a shelf cloud. Here's hoping the storms end soon here in Mid-Mo and don't create too much havoc.
Until next time...
