My mom’s cousin recently sent me some family photos, and I finally got around to scanning them. Homer Lord and Clarissa Perry are my great-great grandparents. I haven’t identified many of the people in the group photos, and they could actually be members the Perry family, not Lord.

The same photo is below, annotated
I *think* this is what we’re looking at. I’m less sure of the boys, especially Boyd.
1. Clarissa A. Perry
2. Homer Charles Lord
3. Myrtle Lord
4. Clarice Marie Lord (my great grandmother, and check out that epic side-eye)
5. Elsie Lord
6. Leola Elizabeth Lord
7. Jay Lord (I think?)
8. Boyd John Lord (again, I think?)
These are from another project I’m working on. I have a big lot of photos I bought online, and after receiving them, it became clear that they belonged to two families. And it’s possible it’s just one family. I’ve identified two main family groups and am looking for a connection between them.
This is one group, all photos taken about 1942, probably in Illinois. If this is your family, please contact me. I would love to return the photos to you!
Jared Tyner Lyon (1902-1968) married Esther Harriet Anderson (1901-1969) in 1924. The boy is their son, who may still be living.
Viola Susan Tyner (1872-1963) married William Edgar Lyon (1870-1926). I’m still trying to identify the young man in the last photo.

These were sitting on the loading dock one morning, when I got to work.
The plastic shades on my cheap-ass medusa lamp were crumbling. I couldn’t find replacements (I’m not spending a million damn dollars on shades for a lamp that cost $20). I removed the shades and replaced the bulbs with LED vanity bulbs. LED Edison bulbs would work, too.
Thomas got a bath last weekend. My mom visited, and she’s allergic to him, so I always give him a bath before she comes. He was a very good boy for her visit, but when she left, he was absolutely worn out. Being a good host is hard work.
Both of these pairs of jeans are allegedly the same size. In case you were still wondering why women hate to shop for clothes. It’s maddening. That said, the pair that fit me (that did not have fantasy sizing) had real, functional pockets.
This was from last Monday. I took the dog out for his last potty break before leaving for work, and the sky was doing very lovely things.
Tacket binding using a recycled encyclopedia cover. I’m planning on doing more of these, using the same encyclopedia set.
I also spent the weekend sorting photos and getting a start on putting them into albums. Just when I thought I was finished sorting, I found another box of photos. And then I realized I’m still missing a stash, but I have no idea where they are.
I’ve been obsessed with Granny Smith apples and peanut butter, lately. Thomas says that is, coincidentally, his very favorite food. All foods are his very favorite.
I was walking Thomas in the rain, and he was taking his sweet time sniffing around, so I entertained myself by looking for four leaf clovers. I found one! I haven’t found one since I was a little kid.
