Sunday Synopsis: 2011 September 18th: OMG iIt's Been Nearly A Month!
Life and family stuff came in overwhelming gusts and flurries, so not much writing occurred. However, for the most part I have continued to transcribe J.P.'s diary. In fact, when my life is in chaos, sitting here with my dual screens and becoming lost in the day to day Springdale happenings of 150 years ago is comforting and strangely relaxing. For seven or so years, J.P. wrote faithfully in his diary. Then one day it stopped--- for almost a year. Important things happened that year. Mary's folks, William G. and Elizabeth Burns apparently came to visit and stayed. Also, it seems that Billy moved out of the family home, at least for a while. And there seemed to be changes in J.P.'s political sphere --- and all I can do is to keep transcribing and hope for clues to what happened during that year. But, no, he had a couple of more lapses in his diary keeping. I guess, life and family stuff came in in overwhelming gusts and flurries for J.P., as well as his great-great-granddaughter.
