Greetings and Salutations, WikiTreers!
So the wonderful weather in the midwest has begun it's spiral down to winter, with its usual twists and turns. Snow one week. Rain the next. Currently we're in the rain, mist, and fog cycle, with the colder weather heading in to turn it to sleet and snow. Gotta love Indiana in the winter. It really can't make up its mind.
Our new cat has decided that we're acceptable, and she proves it every morning by walking on my wife's head until she wakes up and feeds the kitty. I've told her that its a badge of honor to be chosen that way. She disagrees. But it's nice to see the kitty (5-year old - more of a "cat" than "kitty") come out of her shell, settle in, and show us a bit more of her personality. She slept at the foot of the bed last night and waited until a whole 4:50 AM before trying to give us her wheezy purr, loud meows, and a few gentle claws to remind us that she's HUNGRY. We're going to be working on fixing her schedule so that we can at least sleep to a decent hour.
Genealogy-wise, I have been trying to work on the family of civil rights leader Malcolm Young Jr. and making decent progress. I've got as much of his family as I can find, up to the Civil War barrier, and have started in on marriages, cousins, and such. I'm trying to remain hopeful that there's enough family, links, and such to one day find a connection, but at the moment, none in sight. I did take a brief break to find a new connection for Mister Rogers, but once that was done went right back to Mr. Young. Guess I'll stay with it for a bit more for the moment. I do want to get back to my Fulkersons mini-project. The latest Fulkerson is Fulkerson-1918, so I'd like to create 82 more by end of year and see a Fulkerson-2000. I think it's still possible to do, but it means I'm going to have to set aside other projects so that I can get it done. No crisis if I don't, but it would be nice.
