Strange times unfold before our very eyes. We managed to survive four years with a madman in the White House. He waged a full scale attack on our democratic institutions and values. Things like rule of law, truth, honor, civility and integrity, for instance.

And now sanity returns to the White House. Praise be to God!

March 30, 2021: My cousin, Betty Millican Barnes, sent a packet of old family photos. I’ve been scanning them and trying to figure out who’s who. To see what we’ve scanned so far, click on the “Family Photos” link in the menu above; or click here.

I’ve created blog entries for some of the scans, so readers may comment on them; hopefully you can identify some of the photos we’re not sure about. Please do.

Have fun!
