It’s a Sunday morning in the middle of a three-day weekend, and I’m relaxing on the couch in my yukata (Japanese summer robe), reading my final issue of Better Homes and Gardens.

I’m obviously not in their demographic, though, as their main stories this issue revolve around entertaining guests in the home during the summer months: garden parties, grill-outs, and the like. Don’t they know that most of my potential invitees have spouses, houses, children, and/or have much better things to do than hang out with me on a Saturday afternoon? Didn’t they get the memo that I’ve cancelled all future post-vacation parties, due to a lack of interest?

Hmph. Just as well that my subscription’s expiring, I suppose.

  1. Diana, I came upon your blog while attempting to research my family history. I submitted a comment on your geneology page for Walter Mickler. I think he was my grandfather’s brother. I see on your blog, a picture of your granny, but I can’t find her name anywhere. What was her name? If it is Walter’s wife, Cora, and we have the same Walter, I may have another picture of her at home. I am at work now, but can’t wait to get home and compare the pictures. My brother John and I are just getting into this geneology search. We are amatures, but hoping to find some interesting information.
    If you reply to this email today, I won’t see it for another 4 hours when I get home. But I hope to hear from you.
    Thanks, Crystal Dennis…Great Grandaughter of Isaac Mickler

  2. Crystal,

    Great to hear from you! I responded privately via email, so I hope you received my message. Looking forward to learning more about the Micklers!
