  3. I am so glad you commented on my FF/Random 5 post as Genealogy Junkie, because I only knew you as Coloring Outside the Lines...and well, I am excited! Are Tombstone Tues, Wedding Wed, and Census Sunday all memes in which we can participate? I would love to sometimes, and I know my Mom would as well. If you just "do it on your own" I can always give people a link back to this blog when I do a post. It's a great idea! Hope you are having a wonderful Easter week, and thanks for your comment!
