After a little conversation with my mother during naptime this afternoon, I learned a few things. Doll (aka Dorothy) is one of Inez’s aunts, she had twin daughters – Fae and Faith. Catherine is another one of the cousins. I’m going to have to ask about Charlie. I’m going to stop there to keep it simple. The only other thing I’ll add is that Dean and Inez (siblings) were 12 years apart in age. So Inez, being 17 in 1930, left Dean to be 5 at this writing. Inez and Dean were the only children in their immediate family.
One thing that comes to mind with all these names is a certain new addition to our family. Last week our rather large family welcomed another baby girl. She’s been named Stella. I love that these old names are returning! It’s just a wonderful thing in my humble opinion. I was happy to answer a request once again for another baby afghan for this sweet bundle and I have a photo of baby, her big sisters and blankie to share. Isn’t she just precious??!!
Being from a very large extended family who truly enjoy each others’ company, it’s been hard during this pandemic staying away from each other. But we’ve canceled our family reunion twice (some had hope we’d be ok by September) and I’m personally bowing out of handing out candy this Halloween. No I’m not bending to the ‘establishment’. So take that and put it on your plate! I care for high risk families and we are a high risk family. Seriously, no one is replaceable. Bottom line.
Thanks so much for visiting and feel free to come back anytime.
