Blogging Issues, Blessings and Family Pics

Hello Everyone,

I don't know what in the world is wrong. It is either my computer, internet explorer or blogger. I have been in the middle of posting and then blink everything is gone. I guess this weekend I will be sitting down and trying to figure it out. Have any of you been having problems?

Have you ever just felt like throwing your arms up into the air and thanking God for something? Well I had asked for prayers a couple of posts ago and I just wanted to let you know that about a day ago part of it was answered, I was so excited. Then yesterday another part of it was answered, I got very excited. I still have a small part that I am waiting on and probably won't get that answer until next week. But you know I have said it a thousand times, God just amazes me with all of his blessings!

Now on to family matters. My cousin has posted about 500 old pictures of our family on her MySpace. I kid you not. So of course we all hopped over there to see what all she's posted. So I thought I would post a few here.

Probably in their Sunday best - but I don't see any smiles

The little girl on the left is my Great Grandmother Ada Everett

Cousins - still no smiles

Blue, Leonard, RW their mother Mattie is in the background. Now either she was really tired or she resembled a zombie. I'm just saying

So those are just a few of the pictures I stole from my cousin. Life was difficult back in those days. I can only imagine what a day was like for a mom. It was a simpler time too. I only know one thing for sure, I never would have made it in that life. I am way too lazy to have worked that hard!

Have a blessed day!

Those are wonderful pictures. I would imagine if we had to dress they way they dressed and sit as long as they did for those pictures, we wouldn't have smiled eithter. :-)

Those are splendid photos Valerie. I do enjoy old family photos. It helps flesh out our ancestors. I'm an avid genealogist. It took so long to take a photo that people didn't smile much for photos.

As for the problem: It may be the computer. If the screen is suddenly going blank, that's the computer. If it's just this website, it's blogger and can be reported.

Hope this helps! :o) ♥ ∞

Hello Valerie!
I have had probles with blogger at times as well. It can be very annoying!
So glad to hear blessings are coming your way! I hope it continues to go just the way you want.
Those old photos are so neat-I love stuff like that with so much history behind them!
Hope you are having a fun week~Tam :D

I am sure that the blogging problems you are having are Blogger's fault. It seems to be experiencing a split personality lately. Good one day, very bad the next. :)

The family photos you posted are amazing...really shows your rich history. It is wonderful that you are able to look at all of these electronically too.
