  1. I love your photos! I am actually new to the blog world and saw your blog on CWO. If you have time please visit my blog.

    I’ll keep watching your “about me list”….grow! You have made me laugh. πŸ™‚

  2. I know this is an old blog but it made me laugh. Out loud. Very loudly, in fact. So now my neighbors think I’m that crazy single girl that lives alone and laughs hysterically to herself in the middle of the night. This could explain why I haven’t bonded with my neighbors. πŸ™‚

  3. I am very interested in your article on Charles & Leno Williams. Do you have more information on their lifes and where they lived. They are my Great Grandparents. Virgil Williams was my Grandfather. I would appreciate any information that you would care to share. My Mother is still living (93) and is doing well. I have been trying to get information for her on this side of the family.

    Thank You
