So, blogger has this nice little feature that allows you to put whatever date you want on a post. This would be extremely useful to me in my current state of having missed two days of posting over the Thanksgiving break. But I will be truthful and not cheat by back-dating posts.
Instead, I will tell you that I spent several lovely days visiting family, and I learned quite a few things about my ancestors, my childhood, and my parents' young life. Don't get too excited, but there are love poems on the horizon for this blog.
