Back at It!

This is a project of love, but it is a huge undertaking.  There are many boxes in our garage that need to be taken inside and sorted.  The problem with that is I always find something right away that I am fascinated by and sit down to look through.  Then an hour later there are dogs to walk, or laundry to be done, or meals to make.  And it may be a month before I get back to the box.  I don't ever want to feel that this is a chore and I know Madeline would never want me to feel that way, either.  So from time to time when I feel I need to take a break from this project I will not be updating the blog.  I hope those who enjoy these memories will understand that this is an ongoing project and I so appreciate your visits.  I am a strong believer in preserving our past as a way of improving our present and future. 

I'm ready to roll again and hope you will enjoy the amazing treasure I discovered today.  Thanks for your interest and support.
