AYWalton: that's nice, alt, thanks.
Selma: I enjoyed your Labor Day blog vicky...and your posting on Gorgeous George brought back memories vicky..my grandmother was a big wrestling fan
AYWalton: Selma, in my home town wrestling was a big thing and on local television. They used to have local folks with fanciful name wresting. A popular guy was somebody called Chief Kit Fox. He would come in the ring with a full headdress and get mad and start making the expected noises and get the crowd going.
daviss: thank you Selma, I appreciate you reading them
AYWalton: but the weirdest thing was this----about 2-3 times a year they brought on what they called "colored girl midgets!" Talk about weird---and those short sisters were slingng each other around.
Selma: My grandmother would watch on TV...she actually went to Madison Gardens's a couple of times.
daviss: lol I imagine that was a sight AYWalton
AYWalton: it was wild!
Selma: I don't remember seeing on "colored girl midgets"..but I do remember Gorgeous George
daviss: That was my aunts favorite lol now it costs an arm and a leg to see the WWE players
AYWalton: I found a photo once on google on one of them.
daviss: I would love to see the Bill Pickett Rodeo televised so more AA's could get exposed to Black Rodeo
AYWalton: that is a big deal in Oklahoma. Okmulgee Rodeo, Boley Rodeo, Arcadia Rodeo. and there is one that travels.
Khathu: hello everyone
daviss: Is the one in Boley still going on

AYWalton: that's it!
daviss: I know my Ex used to go to the Prison rodeo but forgot where it was So does everyone have their grill all fired up today?
AYWalton: it is an interesting culture out there. not yet, daviss! You got your meat seasoned?

AYWalton: found a photo of one of the wresters, daviss:
alt: what are you presenting/preparing for the reunion Khathu?
daviss: ok aywalton
Khathu: as well as a descendant chart
Selma: Did you hang your 90 foot chart alt?
Khathu: yes alt i will be presenting at the reunion
AYWalton: is this for an event, khathu, or on one of your projects? ahhh you answered my question.
daviss: boy thats something AYWalton thanks
AYWalton: when is it?
alt: we had it out on disply Selma, couldn't find a 90+ wall to mount it.
Khathu: i'm the residence historian for the family
AYWalton: I am busy indexing my pages for the LCAfricana project. Doing my 10 pages to help out.
Seventies Soulchild: You are a good one too Khathu
Khathu: so where did you display it alt
alt: wonderful Khathu
Khathu: i try to be Seventies
daviss: thanks Spivey, I got email
AYWalton: will you be making a formal presentation, khathu?
Khathu: yes i will be making a formal presentation
alt: we were under the grandstand at a county faitgrounds and the had display cases lined up under the grandstand Khathu, we had about 70 ft. to place the chart on top of them.
Spivey: You're welcome daviss. The form prints out very well.
alt: it was ladi out so folks could 'unfold' sections and try to locate themselves and their lines
AYWalton: are you presenting the line---or focusing on a particular aspect of the family history?
Seventies Soulchild: Goodness gracious I need to go... talk to you all later.
Khathu: i will be focusing on the patriarch of the family Isaac Haynes
daviss: heyyy 7
alt: oh Khathu, did you get the Power Point I sent you an the Adams milestones?
Khathu: not yet alt
AYWalton: I have found that at a reunion---it is good to either 1--tell a story about one person---OR 2) to walk them back through the records---making sure that they GET the records that you talk about---and then share with them your observations.
alt: wow, I sent it Fri.. maybe I should resubmit Khathu
3rdthawkins: I didn't get to do that with my grandma AY, I was so sleepy
Khathu: AYWalton - I planned on doing that. The family is too large to try and cover everything
AYWalton: I even had cousins in Reno to ask me to re-tell the story of Uncle Sephus that I told in 1996 in Phoenix. Some remembered it when they were small----and they wanted to hear it again. Uncle Sephus is family hero to them.
3rdthawkins: oh, ok, was gonna ask if everyone is ok with that story
alt: that's what my PP does AYWalton. it focuses on Lewsi & Susan Adams our progenitors and their lives from 1785 to 1864.
AYWalton: I like that---plus it keeps folks very interested in their history. I must say---they have embraced it!
Khathu: that is the format i am following
3rdthawkins: wow, AY, that's cool
Khathu: alt - can you re-send the email to me
alt: sure will Khathu .. today.. it is in PP 2007...should I send that or a 2003-2007 version of PP?
Khathu: either one would be fine
AYWalton: Well folks, I am going to run. Have a wonderful day everybody!! Enjoy the holiday!
deannie: I have rum
Khathu: have a great day everyone
3rdthawkins: was she trying to say she has to run?
Spivey: Gee, and she didn't even offer anybody any!
daviss: rum will make you log out lol
Selma: I have to "rum" too...have a great day.
Spivey: LOL. I might as well rum too so I can eat my snow crab legs. Maybe with some rum. LOL.
