Greetings and Salutations, Fellow WikiTreers!
It's been an interesting week. My contract is running out with my current employer, so I've been busy dusting off the resume and pounding the pavement looking for the next one. I'm very hopeful that the interview I did on Tuesday will pay off - that job sounded quite interesting and could very easily start the day after my contract ends, so that I've got no gap in there at all. If not, I suppose I keep looking, but I'm hopeful either way.
We took a trip last week to Peru, Indiana to visit Conny's German Breadshop. Peru is a small town near Grissom AFB, so it has it's charms as well as a nice small town downtown strip that meanders just a bit off the main drag. Conny's is on the main strip and she is one of the most friendly women I've ever met. She met my wife and I with smiles and freshly baked homemade cinnamon rolls. We ended up taking home fresh baked goods including sweet bread, almond butter kuchen, and pretzel rolls covered in baked cheese, sunflower seeds, and crushed red pepper. I think there might be a slice of sweet bread left, but the rest is gone. This week might be a trip to the Pie Shop we passed on the way there, that's supposed to have the best pie in the state. We'll see if that's true. Especially if they have a slice of butterscotch pie on hand.
From a genealogical standpoint, I've been buried in James Brown's relations for awhile now, and it's time to set that aside so that I can move on to other projects. I was thrilled that I found 2 connections for him that will definitely stand a high level of scrutiny and a third that was really wishy-washy, but he's connected to the global tree and that opened up a whole series of profiles of color that I was simply getting lost in adding to the tree. I suspect I could have sat on him for another 2 months and made tremendous progress for the communities in Colleton, South Carolina and the surrounding areas, but it's time to resume other activities. Maybe I'll return to it again one day. In the meantime, I need to purge them off my watchlist so that I can somehow get below 10,000. And I need to return to my Fulkerson family profiles as I neglected them a bit this month. Got a bit of catch-up to play now.
Winter also came back this week, as we saw snowfalls, icy roads, and cold, cold weather once more. Winter needed to remind us that it's still not spring, and frankly I didn't need the reminder. The snow's pretty to look at, but when it hits 50 degrees next week and rains, it's just going to be wet and a bit cool out there, and the roller coaster weather will continue.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
