FF55, Aug. 1 '13 Once again


 You trip over the rails of family traditions
gripping the pails of starch required to straighten and whiten shirts
flip stacks and racks of books searching for facts
rip up requests for soiree's in favor of tennis and standings
unzip the history of this family and turn it inside out
exhaustive microscopic studies, may help...

Also I become curious to open the privacy curtains of family history.

Then I wonder: do I really want to know all these thngs?

Don't know for sure if I got the jist of it, but.....
I see fifty-five
is still alive.

I always loved tripping over the rails of family traditions

PEACE--LIGHT

(comment in 55 words--had to remove "and" between "Peace and Light"!)

so like right before i was born my dads family did one of those family history things...traced his roots back to like alexander the great...

my mom always wanted hers done, so one year he did it...she was so excited...except...the only royalty in her line was one king....king FATASS...no joke...well it is kinda funny...but in all seriousness

Oh, there are many who like to re-write history...especially family history. They often carry spray paint cans to black out the sections they don't like.

Have a beautiful weekend, izzy!

Family history is fun or worthy of burial.

I have been wondering about you. Hope all is well and you are catching up on chores or just taking a break. Hope to see you back here soon!

Just tonight I was reminded of a few scenes from my REAL early years (couple TV news stories brought on these thoughts--DAMMMIT!)...and it helped me to know ME better--suddenly. As if I was looking at a video, but I was also IN it...

And then happen onto your "latest" blog post, in which discussion of "family" stories is on tap.

HOW interesting.
HOW curious.
HOW coincidental....

Even if you never see this Izzy, I had to paste it SOMEWHERE...

I used to believe also to "NEVER go back, even for fun...but I've come to agree with one of the promises: "We will not regret the past, nor wish to shut the door on it..."

PEACE and LIGHT, Izzy.
C U on FB!
