Failures are sure to come to most men, somewhere, somehow. When they come, let the man consult his watch and see what time it is…and let him rally his forces for another charge in the hope of final victory.
George L. Perin

Good morning, I'm off today. I had noticed I'm getting 2 days in a row out more and more often. One of the managers told me they have someone that looks over the computer schedule and tweaks it and she was trying to give people 2 days in a row off. She couldn't always do it but was trying for 3 weeks a month. I told her I would prefer if my schedule stayed close to the same time. She asked if I would be her main closer. Yes I'll be a closer. So now I'm closing 4 days a week.

Good morning, Mom does comparative religion studies, most of the family does. Every once in awhile we find something that makes us say "say what" This one gave us a good laugh.

"There is a sense of exhilaration that comes from facing head-on the hard truths and saying, 'We will never give up. We will never capitulate. It might take a long time, but we will find a way to prevail.'"

Good morning, I have been quite a bit of pain after work. Luckily today is my last long day this week. Tuesday I have a short day then am off 2 days and have another short day. Wal-Mart's week starts on Saturday. Yesterday Was pretty busy in CS and the mangers couldn't believe how often I called for a load, being a Sunday. Just before we closed down a customer asked if Money Gram was up? A strange question, yes we are up. Turns out we are the 3rd Wal-Mart she has gone to to pick up money sent to them because the 2 Wal-Marts closet to us were down.

Yes MaryAlice, some people live in denial. I've always been pretty much a realist but I guess it would be easier sometimes not to look at the truth when it's unpleasant. When children are involved, it is just so sad.

I need not…be a person who was destroyed by my experience. I can be a person who grows as a result of my experience. I should never, however, pretend that it didn’t hurt like hell. It may well continue to do so for the rest of my life.
Bobby Newman

Good morning, Last night I was in a lot of pain at work and today my body says is an off day. Not going to get many steps. I'm spending most of my time on the floor doing floor exercises and gentle ones at that.

In reality I think the only reason I'm exercising is because I need to finish my taxes, write some letters and pay some bills.

Sandy, sometimes live gets in the way. I don't think i could do what you do. The stress of not telling someone to act like a parent would kill me. I know I only had Beka, and her mother is bipolar. I wanted so bad to knock her up side her head and tell her if she would just stay on her meds she would have Beka. Beka's mom reached the point where I didn't feel I could protect Beka from her mom any more and sent her 2,000 miles away to her father. No Beka's mom never abused Beka, she just did things that put Beka in harms way, and didn't realize these things could hurt Beka then called everyone liars when we asked her why she did it, because she would never do anything that might hurt Beka.

Hi all,

One team member was curious why I haven't answered any of the questions of the day lately. It was an entirely legitimate question, so in case anyone else is wondering I've decided to copy my response to her here. I've just been meeting myself coming & going lately.

Yes, I've gotten behind in answering them. My job at the church has expanded lately, but hope the hours will cut back after Easter. The four foster children I advocate for did all live within 20 minutes of me, but two of them were moved to different locations - one about 45 minutes away & the other about 1 hour away..I had to go to court for one of them this week & the other three next month. I have gotten behind in everything.

Long story short - I will try to do better.

Alice Thinks Sometimes Maybe Perhaps

Good morning, Yesterday I went to the Livestock show and rodeo. We got there and discovered it was free to seniors and children. Nothing was open but the livestock show and that was what we went to see. I spent an hour walking around looking at pigs, cows, goats and other live stock. No one there but a couple day cares. Then DH went and sat down and I took a turn around the grounds watching people set up for the evening crowd. I walk a lot and it was good to have somewhere different to walk. I saw a coyote in the middle of the road a 1/2 mile from my house on the way home from work the other night, about 11:30P, so this has put a big damper on my night walking. If I had my way I would do most of my walking in the dark.

Marion D. Shutter,

Good morning, DH and I are going to the livestock show and rodeo today. I know the big one in Houston was last month, but I hate crowds. This is a smaller one south of us, besides we are going while the children are in school.

The strokes of the pen need deliberation as much as those of the sword need swiftness.
Julia Ward Howe (Unitarian, author, reformer)

Good morning. I only worked 4.5 hours yesterday and was on the register 3 of those hours and still got 9,000 steps.

Looks like the wind has gone away. I'll try walking the dogs. Yesterday I was walk, fighting the wind, when a branch blew off a tree and landed in front of us. OK it was a small branch and I don't think it would have hurt either of us, but our walk was cut short.

Court doesn't sound like fun. I feel for the children. Peace to all

Another possible source of guidance for teenagers is television, but television's message has always been that the need for truth, wisdom and world peace pales by comparison with the need for a toothpaste that offers whiter teeth *and* fresher breath.

Good morning, I'm dressed and have walked one dog. quick post and then the other. It turned cool and windy. Thunder showers for this afternoon. I have to work 2P to 11P so lets hope they are between those hours and not while I'm driving. It is only 8 miles, but takes me 1/2 hour on these country roads and i hate driving in t storms.

"Hope is the feeling you have that the feeling you have isn't permanent."

Good morning, I'm off again today. Yesterday I thought I worked 2 to 11, got to wok at 2 and was greeted with we didm' think you were coming in. When I asked why, I was told I was scheduled to work noon to 9. Well I was an hour over and had expected to take a 2 hour lunch so that just made me and hour late. When I went to lunch the 2 to 11 manager, who was also on lunch, eat at my table and said she was glad i misread my schedule, she needed me and i could work as long as I wanted. I stayed to 10 so got 40 hours for the week.

I have told people I never thought I would need what I learned on the farm at work in town. I don't race around the pasture after cows. I walk all over the store, I don't wrestle cattle, I wrestle microwaves, lawnmowers and ....I don't struggle with the broken English of the Amish, they speak low German, I struggle with the broken English of the Mexicans. So amazing how close to the same they are. Several people have commented on me switching to broken English when my family is British and I speak the queens English.

Good morning, I've walk one dog and ridden my bike from Malibu to San Diego, along the beach. DS lives in san Diego and says my DVD needs a GPS. There in no way I could bike that in 53 min. Well the DVD cover says 53 min, but I think it is really 52 min. I'm doing pretty good. that use to be 10 miles, now it is just over 12.

Good afternoon, I spent the morning shopping with DH. I'm off today and am not doing much of anything. It is as if my brain said off and my body turned off. oh well this is one of those on again off again weeks. Off one day work the next and off again. My feet need a break. I'll do some floor exercises this afternoon.

“Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.”

- Og Mandino

Good morning, Let me explain, I'm happy with 15,000 to 20,000 steps a day. Anything over 25,000, hurts. I don't need a staff to walk, When I broke my ankle the Dr said I had the kind of break that would heal quickly and completely, but would hurt the rest of my life. The good news was that since I wasn't afraid to use my staff in public the pain would be less. Concrete is the hardest surface, and hurts the most. I can't use my staff at work. That means I'm standing on concrete without my staff for 8 hours a day. When I'm a cashier, I stand on a mat, When I work customer service, I'm walking, so not on a mat. For those of you that are need to know, yes I've talked to the Dr. I can't do anything to hurt my ankle that wouldn't break everyone else's ankle. Does management know I use a staff, yes several have seen my out and about with my staff, and many have tripped over the box I put behind me to rest my leg on when I'm on the register.

If a shepherd takes care of sheep, why doesn't a coward

Alice Thinks Sometimes Maybe Perhaps

Good morning, Several people think over 30,000 steps is good and want to strive for it and maybe it is good for someone. Most days I get about 20,000 steps, 12,000 of them walking doge on country roads. great I love it. 15,000 on concrete, nope. Yesterday I made 15,000 steps for the day and was in pain.

CPS took beka away from her mother and gave her to me when she was 6. When she was 7, her mother was considered stable enough to have beka back. CPS told me that they couldn't make it part of the requirement, but wanted me to see her at least one weekend a month to make sure momma stayed on her meds and Beka was safe. When Beka was 11 I didn't feel momma was taking her meds and took Beka. t first momma was ok with it, then she started forgetting things and when she would see beka she wouldn't out and out hurt her, but would put her in harms way. When I said she could only have supervised visitations, she blew up, she would never harm her daughter, there is no way she would do the things people said she did. Thats when I told Beka's father, I could take care of Beka, but I couldn't protect her from her mother and I didn't think a CPS court case would be good for anyone. Beka's anther wasn't an absent father. He really believed that a little girl needed her mother, and since I lived close to mom, being able to see mom a couple weekends a month would be good for Beka and help keep mom straight. We didn't have a court case, I'm think Beka is in the right place, but I sure miss her.

Another busy day. Church in the morning, doing my March CASA reports on my kids, did first draft of my court report for one of my cases. Actually, I hope it's my final one, but I'll see tomorrow. If I need to make changes, those areas will be highlighted & if it gets through, I'll get a PDF copy of it back on CASA letterhead. I'm really not too sure about the wording I used for my recommendations. No matter how I word it, someone isn't going to be happy.

Made some spicy black bean soup & some artichoke hummus to take for my small group tasting this evening. The soup turned over & spilled out of the bowl in the car. Sure was glad I had it in a water resistant shopping bag.

Seek the underlying harmonies of love and the overarching rainbow of hope, rather than the surface distinctions of creeds and of sects. Work for peace in religion.
Jenkin Lloyd Jones

Good morning, worked 2 to 11 yesterday, They put me on the register, there aren't many steps on the register, so I was glad I had gotten them before work. 4 hours later they put me back in customer service. It's Saturday night, they need someone to cash payroll checks. There where so many crazies that one of the managers asked me if it was a full moon. I got home existed and looked at the computer, it said I got 15,000 steps the last 4 hours. I ended the night with 31,000 steps and 200 min of exercise. 12,000 steps and 110 min of exercise was intentional. The rest I got in 4 hours at work.

need to do my taxes, put it off long enough

"The great challenge of adulthood is holding on to your idealism after you lose your innocence."
– Bruce Springsteen

Good morning. Mutt made another hole in the fence, so I have already walked him since he can't go in the back yard. Duke won't leave the back yard even when if you leave the gate open.

I went to personal yesterday, by law part time is under 32 hours a week anything over 33 hours a week is full time. Wal-mart wants all part time. They have me working 33 hours a week 5 weeks and 28 hours the 6th week. They have been doing this for 2 1/2 years. Well they messed up and I have worked over 32 hours a week for over 12 weeks, so they had to make me full time. Wal-Mart has pretty good benefits for part time workers so I already have insurance, I'll get my new benefit package next week, but I don't expect any big changes. The big change in benefits seems to be adding your dependents. DH is on medicare and i don't have any children living with me. The only difference it will make to my hours is they will no longer have to keep track of my hours. I expect I'll still average 33 hours a week.

The place in Wal-mart that cuts hair is having Wal-Mart employee apparition month. Think get Wal-Mart employees to start using them. I needed my ends trimmed and so went to them.

MaryAlice, that's the problem with being where you work when you're not working. I have that same problem on Sundays. People assume that if I'm there, I'm available to do whatever they need. Depending on what it is, sometimes I just do it & sometimes I tell them to call me on Monday.

Today was my day off & I spent the entire day working on genealogy. I also sent off my DNA test today. Now I'm excited & can't wait to get it back.

Tomorrow I better get busy & get something done around the house.

"I have learned, as a rule of thumb, never to ask whether you can do something. Say, instead, that you are doing it. Then fasten your seat belt. The most remarkable things follow."
– Julia Cameron

Good morning, when I was off, I was at Wa-mart getting my hair trimmed,I heard then call for Miss Mary to come to personal. I figured it was another Miss Mary since I was off. One of the managers saw me and said I just told personal you were off. So yesterday I clocked in a few min early and went to personal. They told me to come back today because management needs to talk to me. If it where bad management would have called me to the ad office so I'm not worried, but curious.

I've been so busy I'm not sure if I'm coming or going. In addition to working quite a bit extra last week, I've been trying to organize my genealogy "stuff." Of course, I keep getting side tracked & end up looking for someone, but I've found some stuff too. Oh well, it'll get done eventually......maybe.

Alice Thinks Sometimes Maybe Perhaps

Good morning. Another yucky day, It looks like rain. The weather man says no rain, just nasty.

I went to the Dr. yesterday. The Dr that did my colenospeny (sp) wanted to go over some things. He had reviewed the records my general DR had sent him. He said I had a gall stone and once a gall blather starts making stones it keeps making stones, so it has to come out. My general Dr says it only needs watched unless it bothers me. He said I has a cyst on my overie and it needed to come out. Again my general Dr says It just needs to be watched. I called my DD that is a nurse. She said to talk to my general Dr and if she thinks I need to see a surgeon, go to the one she recommends. She said she thinks the one Dr likes the knife and will send me to surgeons that likes the knife. The other Dr is more realistic and will send me to Drs that are willing to look into alternatives.

Good morning, Well yesterday i did it again. I thought I worked 6:30 till 11 and planed my day accordingly. At noon my husband looked at my schedule and told me he thought I was off. I checked and I was. I'm off again today, already checked, but I had planed on being off today.

I got my hair trimmed this morning. I planed on striping it tonight, but it might get done earlier. The chemical smell is driving me nuts.

If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.
--Bruce Lee

Good morning, I'm up and trying to move. All I can say is I don't have a headache. The night manager has fallen off her rocker. She is complaining about everyone. She went to upper management and complained. Upper management told day shift we had to try and make her happy so she would leave them alone. One of the day managers asked me to stay late and try to make sure she had nothing to complain about. I told her i would, but it wouldn't do any good because the night manager was only happy if she was complaining. The day manager and I stayed 30 mins over and did the first hours of night work. It is hard to get night managers. I can't stay late tonight. I can't have anything to eat or drink after after midnight. If I don't get home till midnight I won't get anything to eat but a small snack between 6P and 10A.

Good afternoon, Sorry I was awol again yesterday. Working 2P-11P one night and 11A-8P the next day doesn't work very good and Wal-Mart decided I should do it X2. I didn't get up in time to post before work and so beat when I got home. Oh well I don't go in till 6:30 this evening. 2 short days then 2 days off. I do have a Drs appointment for some blood work. They want to make sure the meds they gave me are working and I'm not wasting my time. This Dr gives free samples to see if they work before giving you a prescription.

So happy! I have 4-5 new pairs of slacks to wear. The great part is that they all came from my closet so they were already paid for & they finally fit. Today I may have some new jeans from the same place.

Good morning, I wasn't on yesterday because I worked what they call mid day, 11 to 8. I did my exercise before I went in because I knew I would be beat when I got home. I was right, After dinner I was off to bed.

My friend, Anna, isn't doing good. Her heart isn't strong enough to for cancer treatment. She had some test yesterday where they looked at her heart. Her heart is stronger then thought, but the Dr told her that he had sent a 1 year leave of absence form into Wal-Mart.

I am working every day this week. The custodian had surgery yesterday & the pastor is out of town, so I'm here alone until Friday. We have a guy that comes in on Fridays to help clean & he gets a little stressed if one of the regular staff isn't here. I think he may be afraid of my Friday volunteer.

Daniel Webster,

Good morning, Th co-worker I drive home from work several times a week isn't doing good at all. Her cancer has been in remission for 5 years. Last Tuesday she was in so much pain she had to stop 3 times walking to the front of the store and asked me if I could bring the car around to pick her up. She hasn't been back to work since. She texted me Thursday that the Dr was looking for a way to get her cancer back into remission. Yesterday she texted my that she spent yesterday at the cancer hospital er. It is bone cancer, the cancer that I have been told by many is the most painful and the dr said it has spread more then he thought.

MaryAlice, your DVDs sound interesting. Should take some of the boredom out of inside walking/bicycling.

Made some pretty good black bean soup this evening. I hadn't tried it before but I will make it again. Also made more artichoke hummus for snacks. Tomorrow I'm taking samples of both of them to work so my friend Lura can pick the up & try them. We were both really surprised that her husband is taking part in the Daniel Plan & he likes the food.

Good morning, I got plenty of exercise yesterday, the first hour at work was slow so they had me walking around the store looking to put away little things no one could find to put away. they were all the little impulse buys.

Ireland just put out a reminder, it is St Patricks Day or St Paddys Day. Patty is short for Patricia

It seems that much of our practice — in meditation, in writing, in living — is learning discernment and acceptance. Learning what really needs to be fixed and what can be accepted as it is.

Good morning, It is raining and will be all day so it is indoor exercises today. I got a bonus at work and used a little of it to get some DVD's you can play while walking on a tread mill or riding a stationary bike. One makes it look like you are going along the beaches in California and the other the rainforest in St Lucia.

Good morning. Yesterday I was a cashier half the time then in customer service, where it was very busy, so I only got a couple thousand steps and no exercise at work. Well it is exercise lifting and turning at the register, but my tracker doesn't track it. t don't know what was going on. I went in at noon yesterday and it was a Friday.

Generosity is the flower of justice.
Nathaniel Hawthorne

Good morning. Yesterday I went to the a follow up appointment to see if I was having any side effects with the meds they put me on. I told the DR I felt like I had a ton of bricks just under my rib cage after breakfast. Now this is an older Dr. He asked me how long the feeling lasted. I told him till I did my ab exercises. He looked up from where he was taking notes and said WHAT. I told him again. He said it was the first time anyone had ever told him they used ab exercises to relieve ab discomfort. He told me to continue with the ab exercises, but gave some meds for when I couldn't do them.

We were laughing at work. I'm giving customer service a new meaning. It appears there is a % of older Hispanic woman that think rubbing long naturally white hair is good luck. The other day one lady asked me about my hair and once she was sure it wasn't die job or a wig asked to rub it. I thought this was strange but said yes. That started it Someone told me that they thought it was good luck, but since Americans don't they are normally afraid to ask. A couple co workers said if touching my hair was good luck, they weren't taking any chances and touch my hair every chance they get.

Good afternoon, I went to get some more meds and pick up some things at the store. DH wanted a bathmat. What kind? One so I don't slip when I get out of the shower. What color? I don't care if it has Snow White on it I just want a bathmat. He likes royal blue, so I got him a nice plush royal blue bathmat. We don't worry about matching. We worry about function and what we like.

“Two little words that can make the difference: START NOW.”

- Mary C. Crowley

Good morning. The temp is in the high 50's but it is very windy. I've already walked Mutt once today.

I did walk the mall with Tony and Alex, but only got 17,000 steps, so did take it easy. I have been looking for my exercises DVD's since we moved things from one room to another. I had about decided I needed to start my collection again when I discovered I could get most of them on you tube, yes it is smaller and not as crisps as a DVD, but it sure beats buying new ones.

I was watching the boys so there mother could go to the gym. She called and said when I got tiered of walking in circles, she would take me to lunch. I got to the gym and she walk walking on a treadmill. I might have been walking in circles, but I had a 4 year old pointing to everything, watching people pointing at Alex and laughing at an 18 month old, sound asleep, hands still on the steering wheel, trying to hold his head up and not doing a good job of it. She was walking in place, staring at the empty rowing machines. I'll walk in circles any day.

History says about Easter.

“Only one thing has to change for us to know happiness in our lives: where we focus our attention.”

- Greg Anderson

Good morning. I'm off today. Mutt has a vet appointment and my 16 year old grandson wants to go out to eat, so his mom says she will bring him and we can eat together. The 16 year old is so busy with teenage things I don't see him that often.

To tell you how yesterday went I got my 10,000 steps and 120 min exercise before work. I do that because sometimes I'm a cashier and don't get any steps. When I got home at midnight I had 29,500 steps and 191 min of exercise. My feet hurt. Can we say chair and floor exercises.

Beautiful day outside & I plan to take advantage of at least part of it.

MaryAlice, have you heard of the Good Feet store? I have heard lots of good things about them. I think they are probably expensive, but if you're on your feet all the time & they help to relieve the foot, leg & back pain it may be worth it.

"Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit."
– E. E. Cummings

Good morning, I'm doing better, tummy wise. Feet wise, well I only had a 4.5 hour day yesterday. Being Sat night I expected a busy day, and I thought it was. I didn't think I got that much exercise at work. I left for work with 13,000 steps and 120 min exercise. I checked my tracker when I got home and I had 27,000 steps and 207 min exercise. For those that don't know, anytime you move for 10 min without a brake of more then a min.

Glad I got the mowing done, I woke up to rain. The dogs didn't even want to go out to do there thing.

Good morning, I've got some mowing to do and the rain is coming in this afternoon, so hope the dew dies soon. The grass is knee high is one spot.

It was really a pretty day outside today. Too bad I couldn't spend more time outside because I had an early appointment with the nutritionist, then went for a mammogram & this afternoon for an ultrasound. But the time I was able to spend outside was nice.

May Sarton

Good morning. I have walked Mutt but other then that don't have much energy and have an 8 hour day this afternoon. I have a Dr.s appointment next week. I'll talk to him. I really think it is the meds he put me on. He said I have acid reflux even if I have no symptoms. Well since he put me on these meds, I can't even drink water without my tummy sounding like a volcano. I have to sip or nibble everything and sometimes that isn't possible. I wonder if I'm getting what I need.

Good morning. I have the first load of cloths on the washer. I have 2 or 3 loss to do. I was going to spread them out since 2 loads at most fit on the line, but the weather didn't work with me. The sun is shining so I'm seeing how many I can get done. My first load is mostly work cloths and things that hang inside

“Our dilemma is that we hate change and love it at the same time; what we really want is for things to remain the same but get better.”

- Sydney J. Harris

Good morning, it is still cold, but not raining or windy, so the dogs and I are off to walk. Somehow Wal-Mart goofed, I'm off to days in a row. So today is to rest my feet and tomorrow is to et things done. I know walking the dogs doesn't sound like staying off my feet, but when you are use to standing on concrete 8 hours a day 2 one hour walks is staying off my feet.

My picture is an old one but I thought you would like to see two of the fur babies I talk about. I can't take a picture of the three. Freyja won't be in the same room with Duke. so I have a picture of Mutt and Freyja taking a nap together and a picture of Mutt and Duke taking a nap together.

Morning, I can't say good morning because last night it rained till the back yard became a pond and now we have freezing rain. Hope my Sparker friends north of Houston can stay inside out of this mess.

Good morning, yesterday I went for a walk in a tee shirt with my hair in a ponytail to get it off my neck. To day I'm wearing to shirts in the house, my hair hanging loose over my ears, to chicken to brae the wind to walk the dogs. Exercise bike here I come.

Guess who that someone is, the honest people that pay for their things.

Glad they caught her. It would still be wrong, but wouldn't seem quite so bad if it was enough food to feed her family. But two baskets of 'junk? Someone has to end up paying for it in the long run.

Good morning, I tried to stay off my feet yesterday, really I did, but work got in the way, I ended the day with 21,000 steps and got home so late I started today with 1100.

Actually I did sit-down at work yesterday something that hasn't happen in the 2 years I've been there. Loss Prevention called and they couldn't find enough managers. Some woman tried to walk out with $500 worth of stuff without going though the check out line all little stuff, 2 full baskets. They needed two people to sit with her till the police got there. Most of the time it is members of management, but they could only find 2 members of management and they were needed to run a receipt for the police, so I spent 10 min watching a woman try not to cry. I'm use to LP bring in electronics or food, but $500 of makeup, personal hygiene and the like. I think the biggest thing in her cart was floor mats for her car.

Good morning, My tracker says my average step count is 17,000 for the week and that includes today when I haven't even gotten out of pj's. My feet say walking is out.

The guy that was fixing the fix in my kitchen will be back to finish in about an hour. It already looks better and more important I'm not afraid to walk on the floor between the kitchen and laundry room. To make matters even better when my husband asked for the price, the guy said you are on a fixed income and we need to take care of our elderly. It will be 200. I think I have every thing I need at the house but the tiles and that will be about another 60 to 80. We had been hoping to keep it under 1000.

- Edgar Watson Howe

Good morning, We are headed for 70 today but right now it is 58 and the fog makes it feel like I'm walking in a mist.

About 6 months ago we had a problem with the kitchen floor "fixed" and it is worse then it was before. Today someone else is coming to correct the fix. This means 2 big dogs have to be put up. No problem with Mutt, but a 75 pound puppy is another story. I can't even shut them in the back yard. Looks like lots of short walks today. Mutt because he is in the living room and Duke because a75 pounds puppy on a chain. Can we say built up energy.

Happy go Texans day. In case you don't know what that is, Houston has the largest rodeo in the US. Every year we have trail riders come to town from all over Texas. Today is when all the trail riders get to town. Most likely I'll run into a couple coming up from the coast while I'm out walking the dogs. I told DH I didn't enjoy the rodeo the one time I went, but would love to do a trail ride. He said he would too if he could ride in the chuck wagon.

I took the info I had and came up with the ancestor I was looking was most likely named Charles William, maybe Charles, maybe William. Using the relative I had I came up with his birth being 1890 to 1900. I went to Cork for that time period because that is where the cousins were from. Most the area must have been a Hurley and there were 12 pages of babies born during that time period named Charles, William or Charles William with the last name of Hurley. Looks like a history of the area is the next step.

The abundant heart does not consider service a punishment or sharing a burden. Rather, it sees the unmet needs of the community as if they were those of a love one and acts to meet them.
Stephen Shick

Good Morning, I'm off again today. Yesterday it was cold. rainy and windy, so dead at work, we were looking for things to do. There where no customers, more cashiers then normal and 2 people in customer serves when there is normally one. Wonder how they will have it staffed this weekend when the temp is in the 70's.

Dad aways told me that Hurley was Irish, but I never could get to Ireland, in fact it was like they just dropped in America. Yesterday I got a message on ancestry from someone that asked if I was researching CW Hurley in Galveston, Houston or Ft Worth. There were 5 generations of CW Hurleys in the Galveston/ Houston area and Daddy, not a CW but his father is, was born in Ft Worth. He came back and said that his ancestors where from Ireland and came to America to visit their Irish cousins, 2 John Hurleys, Mike Hurley and Thomas Hurley. All were in the Galveston police department and all said CW Hurley was their grandfather. Because of the dates I can pin down which CW and he had 12 children, all lived to have children. He was able to give me the part of Ireland his relatives where from, so I'm off to see if this tip plays out.

Good morning. I woke up to wind, fog and rain. It must have rained all night. I let the dogs out to a pond in the backyard.

Last night I had Tony and Alex. They weren't hard to watch. Do you want dinner, trains, do you want to go for a walk, trains, do you want to read a book, trains. I gave up. I had trains all over the living room. When DD got there, Alex ran to Daddy and fell asleep, Tony showed his mother how to pick up long sections of track at a time and how many trains he could carry at one time. he had the living room picked up in a matter of mins.

Yup, they're telling us that we might get some tomorrow and might get some on Wednesday. I'm really hoping that it doesn't amount to anything.

Hello all,
I have not read the messages for awhile and see I do to do some catching up.

On the census, my grandmother had her name spelled different on one census and correct on the others. I think the writing of the names were not always clear. Printing helps.

Mary Alice, have your read True Women, Will's War and Hill Country by Janice Windle Woods? It is about Texas and such good writings. I felt like I was back in the areas she had in the novel. On Hill Country, she took her grandmother's notes and wrote the novel Hill Country; Will's War was about her German grandfather tried during WWl because he was a German (lived in Fredericksbury)and this is a true story; True Women about the women in the San Antonio during the Civil War and has been made into a movie.

They are beginning to take the ice houses off the lake. Must be removed by Sunday. Cold here again and this next week it will be below zero the next week at night time.

Need to run.
Have a good night.
Leona

Wow, MaryAlice! You're really racking up the steps lately. No wonder you're tired. I got tired reading your total steps & exercise minutes.

The decisions we make may not always be rational. But they come from our hearts and our sense of urgency that the world is broken, and we have a limited time on earth to make it better.
Greg Stewart

Good morning, I was so tired last night it just didn't make sense. I had 60 min of exercise and 10,000 steps in when I left for work. When I turned my computer on when I to home it said I had 174 min of exercise and over 25,000 steps. That's 114 min of exercise, more then 10 mins without stopping, and 15,000 steps. No wonder I was beat, I didn't stand still last night.

Beautiful day today. I was sure glad of that because I had to drive out to see one of my foster kids. It takes 45 minutes to an hour. I had to cancel last weather because they live in a rural area & the road there were bad.

Like my Ferguson/Furguson/Furgusson.

I joined some clubs on FB dealing with anestry, after a while I get so exhausted. Don't know if it is this cold or just all the reading posts.

Mary Alice, its likely that the census enumerator wasn't the only one who wasn't clear about the name spelling and then some descendants chose to use one spelling and others chose to use the other. I'm sure that that's what happened with my Hutcheson/Hutchison/Hutchinson ancestors.

The love of knowledge comes with reading and grows upon it.
Horace Mann

Good morning, I'm doing better, but am off to find out what to do for my acid reflex. Every thing I'm reading tell you things to try and see if they make you feel better. I don't have any pain. I do burp after I eat. Maybe that is something and I can use it. I don't want to take meds the rest of my life if I don't need to. I've had good lock fixing things with life style and would like to do it again.

I haven't gotten back to Jamestown, but my ancestors are in the first families of Virginia. It is kind of funny. In my family there is Dickenson and Dickerson and you better not mix them up. I have followed both lines back and they both go back to a man named Robert that has the same birth date in Virginia. It looks to me that a census takers writing wasn't real clear and an r became an n or maybe it was the other way around.

Sandy, my Jamestown ancestors were John Thomas Clay and Ann Nichols. They married in 1612, he arrived in Jamestown in 1613 and she arrived in 1624. They got at least as far as Charles City and their son Charles ended up in Henrico County. I haven't done the land research, but one of my sisters may live on land he owned. According to Adventurers of Purse and Person Charles bought a lot of land on the south bank of Chester Creek and they live right on the south bank of Chester Creek. They married Wilsons, Mitchells, and Belchers. My Kahle ancestors moved from Pennsylvania to the Lexington, VA area around 1810-1820. My Pearis ancestors started on this side in South Carolina on Parris Island. Some sources say that the first one was a Huguenot and others say he was English. My Hutcheson/Hutchison/Hutchinson ancestors came from Ireland. I'm not sure exactly when they showed up, but the immigrant died in Virginia in 1775. I don't know where in PA John Wason was born, but he was in Virginia before he joined the Virginia Militia and fought in the American Revolution and was in Lexington after the war. The Jarrells just sort of show up in Virginia before 1700 - clearly they dropped out of the sky... My Clay 6th ggrandfather was killed in 1774 at the beginning of Lord Dunmore's War and was the first casualty in the Battle of Point Pleasant. My 5th ggrandparents moved to what is now Mercer County WV about 1780, but their farm was way out there on the frontier and was attacked. Two of their daughters were killed and a son kidnapped and killed later. Understandably, they moved after that happened, to Pearisburg, VA. They did have 11 other children (can you imagine?) so they have a ton of descendants and the daughter I'm descended from and her husband bought their farm. One of their granddaughters married a Jarrell and about 1840 they moved to the same farm where my mother grew up during the Depression. Yup, it took my ancestors from 1613 to 1840 to make it across Virginia to what would become SW WV. My friends love to tease me that my family didn't migrate, and they're right. My dad's family is a whole other story - Yankees all the way and some of them all the way back to New Amsterdam. My parents met when my dad got a scholarship and work study from a college near where my mom lived.

Ann, who is your Jamestown ancestor? I am descended from Robert Beheathland, a 1607 Jamestown settler. What other early Virginia ancestors do you have? Who knows, we might be related.
