11/13 - Two for two
Tuesday, November 13, 2007
I'm bat'n 1000 in the last 3 days. I'm still going through a bunch of boxes of my dad's. These boxes have a lot of old letters, pictures, certificates, etc. One of the things I found was a newspaper that my 13 year old aunt, and my 6 year old father published at the hotel the family was running. In one of the articles they told about a new cousin that had been born. (in 1941). This cousin died about 10 years ago, but I decided to see if I could contact his widow. I checked out www.zabasearch.com and found her right away. I called her up and said, “Is this so and so...”
“I'm looking for the so-and-so who was married to such-and-such who died about 10 years ago.”
“I am her.”
“Well, I'm your husband's first cousin once removed...”
And so started the conversation, and I picked up another cousin in California. Hit one.
Then, tonight, I was going through more papers and found my some old Eagle Scout congratulation letters for me. I thought I'd try and look up my old Scout Master and tell him thanks. (I wrote a letter to him and sent it 3 years ago, but I had the wrong address.) Anyway, I looked on Zabasearch again, and he was the first guy I found. I called him up and said, “Did you used to be a Scout Master about 25 years ago...” And away our conversation went. Hit 2. It turns out that he was the Scout Master for that troop for 35 years. He said he stepped back into a lesser role about 10 or 15 years ago, but still works with that same troop. Some guys are just amazing like that. It's good to have great roll models growing up.
Anyway, last Saturday we got our pictures take. Here are a few that I thought were pretty good.
