Gentle Readers and Dear Friends so sorry to have bailed on you yesterday, but I got busy when I cam in and just never got back to writing a Post. Mea Maxima Culpa. I am feeling all Latinized at the moment probably due to the book I picked up recently.....
I did read Harris' "Pompeii" and thoroughly enjoyed it so I thought this would be a good read... and it is turning out to be a VERY good read!!
I have been stitching a bit on Shores and so here is an update shot of that BAP WIP -
As you can see I have changed Block 8 quite a bit - I have used my 8th Great Grandfather and his death date. I had to dig around quite a bit to find a Sailor on my Tree - most of my Ancestors worked in Agriculture or where Lawyers or Preachers (or all three at times!).... I have even found a Protestant Martyr, my 12th great Grandfather, he was burned at the stake by order of Queen Mary in 1555... it is amazing what you can find out.
With Captain Keech, I know that he was born in Port Tobacco, Maryland in 1650, lived in Barbados, married an Elizabeth Courts in 1683, in St Marys Maryland, had some children, he owned at least two Plantations called "Good Luck" and "Barnhill." After his first wife died he remarried and had some more children... and then died in St Marys Maryland in 1707.... pretty slim info.
I was in Walgreen's and picked up some "on sale" candy so here is a last snap of Mr Bunny with some Spring treats...
Gotta love those miniature Reese's Cups!!!!!!!
There you go sports fans. Thanks for stopping by and for your great comments!! Do stop again! Have a great weekend.
