Yesterday was cool most of the day, wind picked up making the +7 seem like -1 and there were snow flurries in the afternoon. Worked on my research paper, finding a few new facts. I have a group of men on the family tree who went to Massachusetts during the 1900's to fish, well this happened in a lot of families around that time. But of course they never returned and now I am in search of them. I have found a few, some have married, families, they appear in Census records, crew lists of ships, passenger lists going back and forth, and obituaries. My great grandfather H went to Boston/Gloucester each spring to fish, but the difference was he took my great grandmother who kept house over there for a family, and their two sons - my grampie and his brother. I know this because grampie told me the stories many times of living in the States and going to school there. His big complaint was that they came home in the fall and he had to go to school again here. So I guess this migration for work has been going on for many years. Today families go out West, but I think we are less likely to lose them, with computers, skype, laptops etc. it's so much easier to keep in contact.
I like the way the tree grows and hangs over the lake edge. Soon they will be covered in leaves again.
An old log reflects nicely in the water, but I'm not sure what that yellow spidery looking thing is below it.
Time for me to get mobile, have had my coffee, need breakfast and to get ready. Enjoy your day.
