Aug 29th Post

Hi Family,

I have a new church calling and other family responsibilities that are cutting into the time I'd normally be spending on this family history project.

The result is I may not be able to do a post every week, however I will spend what time I can on projects, so...

...if you don't see a post on a certain Sunday, not to worry, I'll be getting each post up when I can.

Just check back each week to see where we are with the projects and continue taking time to enjoy them as I get them finished.

I appreciate your continued interest and support!

Grandpa had these saying in the back of his journal:

Most people are not two faced
otherwise they wouldnt wear
the one they do.

Always put off until tomorrow
those things you should never
do at all.

The operating committee simply
sits at a table solves problems
in such a way that we do
not create more problems

Sign in Dr's office
if you dont see what you want
you came to the rite place

Aug 15th 2010 Post

I was able to get some more on Grandpa's 1965 Journal completed today, but I've had some major constraints on my time, so I wasn't able to get it 100% finished.

Hopefully I'll have it finished and up next week, but until then please enjoy this new picture of my son Reed Johnson:
