AYWalton: and having colored boiled eggs all week. yes, still looking for dad and grandparents. They are there, somewhere!
vkn: Wonderful AYW were that group of Bass in hiding or where you expected them to be
Daviss: Boiling eggs now vkn
AYWalton: yes, but there were three sections with the township---and I had to land on the right one.
vkn: Oh yes you have Tyler to satisfy daviss
Daviss: I will hide one for myself and then test my memory lol
AYWalton: But once Ancestry got the states uploaded, I could look at full pages at a glance, so that made it faster. wow Daviss---they still dye eggs huh?
vkn: They are mighty large pages
Daviss: oh yeah AY
AYWalton: they are way too large, and now with Ancestry, it's a breeze!
Daviss: Yes, I like Ancestry best
AYWalton: so I don't have to use the Archives.gov site anymore.
vkn: We will end up with two versions
AYWalton: or three or four
Daviss: I have hit enter so much my wrist is sore
vkn: What luck are you having Seventies
AYWalton: I think she is multi-tasking and may have stepped away from the machine.
Daviss: I think seventies went somewhere for a few I wish for a change they would index Texas at least 3rd lol
vkn: at least as I understand it
Daviss: then the small states lol lol lol to much to ask huh
AYWalton: I actually no nothing about the consortium. It sounds interesting, though. no = know (I must be tired---I do know the difference between no and know---just tired.) lol
AYWalton: I need to get some sleep instead of chasing folks in the 1940 census!
vkn: no know lol
vkn: but it is so fun ayw
AYWalton: quite true.
Daviss: lol I hear ya AYwalton
AYWalton: vkn did you see yourself in the census?
Daviss: what about you vkn
vkn: Is it ancestry where the images are a dark grey and it takes much time to adjust the jpg Yes BUT my mom had me listed as La Verne
AYWalton: the ancestry images I am looking at are quite sharp and clear! wow. where is the column where it tells who provided the information to the enumerator?
vkn: In the 1930 she listed me as Lavencia go figure lol
Daviss: speaking of that my cousin is listed as verna dean in the 40 census and also in that church log book. She is called Bernadine
AYWalton: and what did she call you?

Daviss: I love Golden Corral lol
AYWalton: lol that's too funny! what's on the menu?
Selma: I went and bought some Easter candy today for my grands..when did Easter get to be a holiday where kids get gifts along with the Jelly Beans
AYWalton: that is not my era.
Seventies Soulchild: ok I'm back... lol Golden Corral is good Selma... :}
AYWalton: We got an Easter outfit, and got to dye Easter eggs.
Selma: Me too
Daviss: lol we had boiled eggs and jelly beans
AYWalton: that was it for us growing up.
Seventies Soulchild: We had some eggs and jellybeans too.. that was all.
vkn: decorated boiled eggs for us
AYWalton: sometimes jelly beans in that plastic green fake grass---but that was all in addition to a new dress with a krinlin (sp?) slip, that we called can-can and scratched like the dickens.
Selma: That was a big thing dying the eggs
AYWalton: but it made the dress puff out ever so nicely, thank you.
Daviss: lol AYWalton
vkn: oh yes and a hollow chocalate bunny
Seventies Soulchild: I hwve to share this, its kind of funny. My nephew is about 2 1/2. So he doesn't talk very well yet. I sat down at the table to give him a piece of chicken he asked for and I decided to eat a piece of pie I bought... this child, not missing a beat looks over and as clear as day asks me "Is that pie?" LOL LOL LOL
Daviss: lol seventies kids are so smart these dsys
AYWalton: sounds like a smart child!
Seventies Soulchild: You know I laughed. Anyway, I remember one easter in the mid-80's where we had a major snow storm and I went to church in boots, winter coat, wool stockings and an spring easter dress.
AYWalton: I am sure that you did take it off so folks could see that outfit, too, huh SoulChile
Seventies Soulchild: yes I was so mad that it snowed that day! LOL
Daviss: my fav color was yellow no pink for me lol
AYWalton: If you went to the trouble to get there, I KNOW you made sure folks saw it!
Seventies Soulchild: My son is asleep himself with my nephew... its so quiet... lol
AYWalton: well I better run, folks. Have a good evening everybody.
Selma: Time for me to go to..yawning here. Have a Happy Easter everyone..
Seventies Soulchild: I am going to run and lay him down. Y'all have a happy easter. Daviss hope you enjoyed the Soul Train marathon. The Feast of All Saints is showing I think on BET right now. Its the historical docu-drama... very interesting.
