View from the Porch
As I prepare for warmer weather, some might think that genealogy will take a back step in my life for the summer. In the summer months I take my new iPad and my iPhone out to do work in this mobile office. I have also been hoarding new genealogy books so that I get get away from the technology for a while.
As I am retired, I think a lot about just relaxing and doing nothing. I am not very good at doing nothing but I am very good at living my life as I see fit. I've been made fun of (read: bullied) because I resisted the suggestions of family and friends to live a "normal" life. If I had kept a diary of those annoying suggestions, it would now be made into a major motion picture. I would call it: "Do as I say. Be successful".
Four careers later, I am successful. Are people jealous? Probably.
I like getting up early and going to bed when I am tired. I am not a heavy eater and I no longer drink. I am not that good at making friends but you would not know that if you met me. What do you think?
So, what porch activities are good for summer genealogists?
