Well Gang, this is yet another new blog. I keep forgetting how to get into the old ones, a sign of age perhaps? Oh well, maybe I can keep up with this one enough that I can remember how to get into it! :D
Maybe I should introduce myself to those of you that don't know me? Hi there! I'm Charlee. I'm a wife, a mother, a grandmother. I'm a scrapbooker. I'm a genealogist/family historian. I love to do needlework. I love spending time with my husband of 7 and a half years, William. I support the President of our country, and the War in Iraq. (Don't dis me on that one, I won't change my mind, so it'd be a "no win" for you!)
Scrapbooking would be my favorite hobby. I love cool pictures. I love recording memories, in the hopes that my children will keep them safe and pass them down through the generations until sometime in the future, someone will open the books and say, "Oh look! G-g-g-g grandma liked this or that..."
Genealogy is a close second. I simply love it. I love to learn the names of my ancestors and if possible, find and scrap their photos and stories. I don't think that we can know where we're going if we don't know where we've been...and these people were who I am! Everything about me is a part of one of them. Most of what I think relates in some form or another to those who have gone before me. I consider it to be important stuff, and besides, it's like playing a game or putting together a puzzle! Highly entertaining, if you have a small degree of patience. :)
Did I mention that I love to gamble? Don't know why, I get HIGHLY upset when I lose, but there's just something that's so entertaining about those stupid penny slot machines (Vegas will never consider ME to be a high roller, cuz I think you gotta have money to gamble with for that!)...and not just when they're paying out! I think it's that I like the challenge of picking the right machine, and then I like the challenge of making the right choices in bonus rounds.
There's a lot more to me than you'll find in this one post. Hopefully, you'll come back and learn more!
