This day in history: September 25, 1897

Thursday  September 26, 1895      Pleasant    

Dug potatoes 21 bush   swaped old Fanny off.  Got a horse with out Swift  (Not sure what that meant will look it up) I looked this up on and found “ask a horse vet on line.  He wrote back and asked if I were willing to pay $38 for an answer, no idea if he had any idea what Web was talking about but I knew I wasn’t going to pay that much to see if he knew so I said, “sorry I bothered you”   On the other sites that come up with the search they all wanted to link it to Taylor Swift’s song “White Horse”.  I’ll keep trying.

Addie and Hattie

This is the newest picture to be added to my family history.  This is of Addie Swartz Young, my great grandmother, and her daughter, Hattie, my grand mother.  I never knew her as she died when my father was about ten years old.  His father then married Hatties youngest sister, Dora.  She had raised Hatties three children because Hattie was very ill with TB before she died.  Dora was only 15 years older than my father so did not want to be called grand mother, we all called her Auntie since she was my father’s aunt but she was all the grandmother we ever knew. 

Don’t for get to go to visit my other pages.  If you want to see more family pictures check out the Family stories page.  I put more on there today.   Look at the top of the page and you will find the other pages in this blog.  Check each one out, some have recipes, some are introductions to the books I have written so do visit them and ask me any questions you have about any of them.  Also ask if there is a recipe you might like.  I am finding more and more healthy things to cook every day.   Thank you for visiting me, do let me know what you think.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
