I dedicate the stories in this blog to my grandsons Jeremy and Dylan. And to their children.
When my mother was alive I helped her write a book of stories about her life. I sent her a book that was full of questions to help her remember. She answered them in many long hand written letters.
My part was easy. I took what she wrote and organized it a bit. I entered it onto the computer, had some family pictures scanned and added. I used "quick pics" as illustrations, and had the books printed and bound.
After they were done, we went back to Wisconsin and had a family picnic where we celebrated Mom's book and had her sign a copy for each of her children and grandchildren.
Now I am doing the same for myself. I'm using the blog format because I am comfortable with it.
I will be using "labels" to organize the posts.
I'm also going to play with making audio tracks of the posts.
So, lets get started!
