I am living a wonderful retirement and wish I could share it with everyone. It's 80 degrees, soft breeze, green pasture, blue sky. Hawai'i is wonderful, but I do need to remind folks not to be too envious - Hawai'i is expensive (gas always above $4, milk $5 a gallon) and I still have to mop the floor and do the dishes.
We have 5 acres, mostly pasture, lots of bamboo, 13 goats (two require milking twice a day and 4 require bottle feeding 3 times a day), a bunch of chickens, 3 dogs, 2 cats, one lamb, two teenagers. Yep, saving money on milk, but a bale of hay (grass or alfalfa) is $35. Only the livestock people will realize that's at least 3 or 4 times as much as on the mainland.
And still I find time for WikiTree. I began with lots of information and very few good sources (except my Aunties who researched but did not record good source info). It has been a challenge with great reward to start entering names and dates and realizing how much I need to do to flesh out my ancestors. My brother, husband, granddaughter and I are all DNA tested, because of WikiTree encouragement.
WikiTree folks have taught me so much and given me so many sources and leads, I am grateful to all of you.
I encourage everyone to actively participate.
A Hui Hou, Kristina
