Whirlwind of a weekend...

I attended the RootsTech conference on Saturday..as a worker, but that's OK..I still got to see and talk to a lot of folks I have spoken to but not seen on my job at the office.

And all of them interested in genetic genealogy.  And it was fun to talk to them, me knowing a little about the subject that I  was explaining..

Sometimes, while explaining, they'd get this blank look ....like they wanted a tele-prompter in my eyes so they could understand what I was saying.



So, I'd throw something in to see if they really were paying attention..


"You can call us during our business hours and ask us questions about all of this..if we don't know the answer...we'll make one up."

It was fun to see their faces..at first, like "Wait, what??" then the little laugh..and I'd then tell them that I had thrown that in to see if they were paying attention..


Things get weired when I work the booth.  But, most all of them left with a smile..

When I wok up this morning, I could remember what day it was..working on a Saturday really threw me off! Is is Monday? No..Saturday? Can I sleep? No..do I make lunches??

Tomorrow will be a  Fun-Mon-day with it being Valentine's Day and all..

So, Happy Valentine's Day and remember what drew you to your Sweetie in the very first place..betcha it's still there!

Genealogy is a very interesting field. The pictures of the little creatures (cats and dog) and those of the big ones (elephants and gorillas) are funny and..relevant to your post.

Nope. Not for me. But I sure did like this post. I would like to have gone to that conference. Genealogy is interesting. Well..the histories are. I don't much like the digging to find people. I lack the patience. But then I lack the patience in most everything. :)

Happy Valentine's day Colleen! Love your post, the pics (and comments) are priceless.

Thank you for your very thoughtful and supportive response on my Funk-a-Junk blog post last week. I'm sorry that you have also gone through similar episodes, but golly, it made me feel better to know that I'm in such good company!

Hugs!

(P.S. my word verification is "inhales"....LOL, okay!)
