Time to pick up the pen…..
Trucks of Art
This is a 50's International Harvester Truck
Ever let things slide? Meaning leaving them languishing needing done. This last year has been tough on both of us, especially at Sherry’s age (wink). First and foremost my last sibling’s death and the paperwork involved. Many of you know about that kind of thing. Then lastly the major problems with the RV and in between many small ‘had to do’ things.
One thing I want to finish is the ‘family’ book I started last year. In the last few days I have gotten back on track with that. The book is simply a sort of combined autobiography of ‘Sherry ‘n me.’ It is for the family to give them some sort of measure of our lives.
I don’t expect any of them to read it immediately. But after we are gone and age creeps up, they may be interested in how they came about.
The reason is simple. I waited too late to ask my parents more about themselves. I have included pictures that I have, of Aunts and Uncles and cousins they may run across if they ever do any ancestry searches. BTW, I had to smile remembering Myra’s comment where she said ‘her dad looked in the phone books for the name Willer’. I thought I remembered that name in my ancestry from the early 1800’s, I checked it out. Shucks, we ain’t cousins, My ancestor married a Hiller in 1835, dang.
Anyway I have let two books languor, needing attention. The fiction, my dog book, requires more concentration and thinking. So I hope this simple history book eases my mind back into a constructive mode.
PS: I expect proofs back today!
