Best laid plans...

I had intended to transcribe the book "Old Stretford" and post a chapter each week, but of course life has a habit of getting in the way of plans. The past month or so has had a variety of ups and downs - my sister visited from interstate, my mother moved back into town, health issues and other fun things happened and this past weekend I was away on an unplanned trip interstate for a family friend's funeral. *Sigh*

On the upside I do have another chapter transcribed and almost ready to post and I am working on another post about a fascinating series of newspaper articles where I discovered an unexpected family connection. I'm still trying to work out just what the connection was, but these articles have provided a very interesting side journey in my research - whether or not I should have been spending so much time looking into this is debatable, but at least it gives another interesting tale to tell at family gatherings. ;^)

So I hope to post the next chapter of "Old Stretford" tomorrow sometime and then I will try to get back on track. Wish me luck!
