Art exhibit

The art exhibit was last night and as I expected none of the invited came except for my two friends from church and that includes the minister who said “good luck”.  This was translated into “I will not be there”.  On the whole the presentation was very nice and now that I am signed up for the group I will probably attend some of the lectures.  This month is based on Dutch influence in the area.  I have family who lived here since 1700’s and one mayor who was in office during the building of the Mid-Hudson Bridge.  My great Uncle Henry was postmaster general for the Poughkeepsie office for years and who was Dutch as was his sister my grandmother.  My other great grandfather fought in the Civil war and was an officer wounded in action.  Supposedly, also on my grandmother’s side we have Cherokee blood (a Indian Princess if you will).  So I guess you can say our family has been here for many generations when tracing back.  That coupled with the Irish and Scotch bloodlines on my mother’s side explain why when I get a little firewater to drink I want to dance.

This week coming I am scheduled for the left cataract removal and I cannot wait-my poor brain does not know which eye to look out of or when.  I am in hopes that I will be in good shape by about Labor day- not too shabby.

  1. Have you read New York by Edward Rutherfurd? It’s the history (historical fiction) of New York from the 1600s to 2000+. Given your family’s history in New York, you may enjoy it.

    • I do not know if I mentioned it :about how my brother brags that Franeix Lovelace was the first Governor of NY. I looked this up and found he was a scoundrel stealing from the king’s funds-when the king found out he took his property sna summonsed him back to England to spend the rest of his life in the tower of London. Another Lovelace latter took his place and he too was a little shady born poor inherited the uncle’s property and it was spent then became governor and he too carefully stached money away but died before he could spend it- he sounds like a true blood relative of mine his luck is on the same plane as mine. I do not brag about my ancestory except my great grandfather on my grandmother’s side was in the civil war and an officer. > Date: Sat, 11 Aug 2012 16:29:25 +0000 > To: >
