When You Realize You Have Cheese on Your Back

When You Realize You Have Cheese on Your Back

It took him a few minutes to realize the cheese was on him.

Turkey Vultures

Turkey Vultures on the Roof

I came home to turkey vultures on the roof and a dead deer in the back field. Thomas was really disappointed when I didn’t let him join in the deer disposal festivities.

1939 Register at Ancestry

1939Reg

I noticed today that Ancestry has added the 1939 Register to it’s collections. It was previously available only through Findmypast, and then only if you had a yearly subscription. Month-to-month subscriptions couldn’t access it.

This is kind of a big deal, if you are doing any sort of research in England and Wales during the WWII period. The most recent census available is 1911, so this may fill in some gaps for you. It’s also unique as a census, because it was later updated to include surname changes when women married.

Caveat: People who are still living have been redacted, for privacy reasons, so if you can’t find someone it may be that they’re still living or only died recently.

Things! In! Bags!

Things!  In!  Bags!
One in an ongoing series.

Our drinking fountain has been broken for months. They finally fixed it a week or two ago, but today it was covered with the university’s standard “out of order” trash bag.

At the Bad Place

Woe Foot

It must be Spring, because Thomas was stung by another damn bee. I took him straight to the vet this time. They gave me some prednisone to take home with me, in case he developed hives again. I kept him doped up on Benadryl all weekend though, so no hives.

Poor dog is a bee magnet.

Found on the sidewalk on 7th Street.

And I finally paid to have the ads removed from the blog. Probably not something most folks notice, since everyone seems to read via a feed, but the ads won’t annoy ME anymore.

Spring Has Been Cancelled

Late Spring, No Leaves
2018

This is the same tree, same day, three years apart. I don’t think we are ever going to get a Spring this year.
