Saturday - Two surprises, Elvis, and my newsletter


What a day!
1. Received a surprise gift in the mail. Will tell you about it when I have a picture.

2. Someone came to my blog looking for my comments on my ancestor Tunis Hood and when I checked it out I got a surprise - Elvis Presley also descends from Tunis Hood. We are cousins, yal.
Elvis descends from Tunis Hood's son John; we descend from Tunis Hood's daughter Rachel. All this through Mama's mother. Granny was born and raised in Mint Hill - near Hood's Corner.
Genealogy is so fun - and filled with surprises. Mama would love hearing about this! You hear it, Mama?

3. Whew - finished my September newsletter. Relieved to scratch that off my list.

Got a journal entry coming up in a couple of days focusing on Elvis and his "Hound Dog" so be sure and stop by for a read. I think you might enjoy it....

I am running a bit behind on my scheduled “Elvis” post and just wanted to let you know. Being from Arkansas, I had to interrupt my publishing schedule to give Annie and her new outhouse over at “Mzodell’s Page” blog her dues. I will be giving Elvis his dues tomorrow or Thursday.
