  •  Well, I've managed to while away another morning (6+ / 0-)

    online, instead of actually, you know, doing stuff.  

    Only minor scandals in my family tree that I know of. One is that my paternal Great-Grandfather was born out-of-wedlock.  His mother, Mary Frances, went on to marry three times after his birth. Probably out of spite because the story goes that her parents refused to allow her to marry the father of what became her only child. According to my Great Uncle Ray, she was a fine woman who loved music and saved up her pin money to buy a Victrola so her grandchildren could have some fun! I think there's plenty of Frankie, as she was called, in my blood.

    I've got to go and replenish the larder.... been OOT for a week and need to eat! Have a great week-end, everyone!
