Thomas went for more than a year, ignoring the various tennis balls in his toy box, left over from Frances. Then one day he found a squeaky tennis ball, and now he’s addicted. Unfortunately, he peels them, so they don’t last very long.

I missed this in my earlier searching through Atlanta newspapers for my third great grandfather, Henry Lewis Hoover. I’ve had bits of The House that Jack Built floating around in my head all day.
“Lost,” The Atlanta Constitution, 25 Apr 1879, p. 2, col. 8; digital images, Newspapers.com (www.newspapers.com : accessed 15 Jul 2017). Rec. Date: 14 May 2017.
STTAYED OR STOLEN–A DARK RED Brindle Cow, crumply horns, bored for hollow horn and nails inserted in the openings. Ample reward for her delivery at 28 Connolly street. Dr. H. L. Hoover.
A few years ago I tested a couple of pedometer apps on my phone. They all drained the battery, because they couldn’t work in the background. That seems to have changed. This one works quite well (it was within a few steps of my wristband tracker), and there isn’t any noticeable impact on battery life.
I think half those steps were at Kroger. The store is huge, and a wristband tracker doesn’t work well when you’re pushing a shopping cart. It’s nice to finally get official credit for those steps!
