busy, busy, busy, busy -- describes me the past couple of weeks. My last post was made while I was in the DC area for a business trip. We had a great finish to the trip and I even managed to take a few pictures of the National Library Medicine (i worked there for a year, just out of library school, back from 99-00).

I returned home on Friday night the 17th, and got up the next morning to go to Alabama for a quick visit to Kalonji's family. While we were in Talladega, Kalonji spent some time trying to clear out some of the overgrown trees/shrubbery over some of his ancestors' graves. He made good progress, but we'll need to go back with an axe to cut down some of the overgrowth. This is important to us though, so it will probably be something we work on each time we go back down to Talladega for awhile.

Then, for Thanksgiving, we came to my father's place in Greensboro and have spent the last few days here. We head back to Nashville tomorrow and it's back to work as usual on Monday! It's been a great few weeks and I am eagerly looking forward to the Christmas holiday too. I promised Kalonji we would get a little tree, so I'll be getting one next weekend for our living room. ta ta for now...

Welcome home and Happy Holidays! You must be exhausted after all your travels.
It is very important to maintain the family's final resting place. We have one from our ancestors here in California. It has recently become a state historical site so we have great motivation to keep it up. There is so much history for us to learn in those places.
