What's Up

 A few paperback books were printed in 1939 by George H. Armistead, Jr. who is a distance cousin. The original manuscript is in the Confederate Library at the University of North Carolina. Mimi recalls a man came by the farm and he took several things and she feels the manuscript was one of them. The manuscript which has been printed in this book was written by Captain Thomas B. Wilson as a Christmas present in 1904 to Prince's name sake. I have been working on Ancestry.com and have put some of the history provided in this book along with other stories and documents I have found. Unfortunately, when those stories etc are copied by others, on the hints it gives credit to the last person who has COPIED them and not to those who SUBMITTED them. I feel this program SUCKS to be very blunt because if you submitted the information, well you should be given credit. I do not care if you copy what I have provided but the Hints should always show who submitted. Upset with Ancestry.com.  Nuf said. 
 I have never given a program before but was game when my dear friend Beverly asked me to give one at The Woman's Club of Nashville. Needless to say that was one of the reason I took off from the blogging ream. Puppy who majored in IT gave me a personal expert help with my power point presentation. The name of my program was "Beauty from the Heart". I provided the members with a little insight to Lady Di and Kitty Justice. I had a showcase for my photos and I also incorporated my crafting and my artwork. 
 I read my poem which was published in the above book and with each line, I showed a different photo of the sun rise that I am very fortunate to see every morning. 
Now I will share the poem with you but only one photo. 
BELLEVUE MORNING SKY
As  the clouds
          pass us by
And the birds whisper
         their morning songs
The wind chimes
         begin to tinkle along
We look skyward
         and start to pray
Thanks God
         for giving us this day. 

The Kitty Justice is now I have shared with you.
