Day 17 The Lake
When I am exercising I enjoy a walk around Lake Kawana. Occasionally there are rowers competing. You too can enjoy a lakeside walk if you attend the Waves in Time Local & Family History Conference that's just been announced at my societies AGM today, Caloundra Family History. It's planned for 24-26 May 2019. More news to come.

Day 16 The Great Outdoors
When I venture out the front door I lean over the fence and check out what new hibiscus flowers have appeared. My phone albums are full of them.

Day 12 Middle Child
My Mum always said it is hard being the middle child but she was only the middle daughter. It was her brother, my Uncle Eddie that was the middle child. He is in the left of the photo.
My Mum, Rowena Mabel Dawson, is in be middle of the photo.

😃I finally added back some photos to my iPad so I can Instagram!!
Day 9 Marriage Certificates. Wondering if a marriage license in the USA is the same as a marriage certificate? I am getting many distant cousins from the USA in my DNA results so I have started looking at distant ancestors relatives migrating to the USA. This one is my 2x Great Grandfathers nephew getting married in Montana.

Sharing a flower from my garden. Perhaps someone researching family history in the future will see I like bright large flowers. #genealogyphotoaday #genealogy #GenealogyPhoto #familyhistory #hybiscus

Finished my latest #crochet knee blanket at last except for sewing in the last 2 threads, wash, shape and give away. Not sure why I like doing ones with different colored squares so they look as if they are made from yarn scraps.

Tiffy or Tiffany when being formal. With us for over 20 years. Lived with us in 6 different homes. Very fussy eater preferring cheap canned food with whole fish pieces. A family pet.

Day 5 Hope Chest.

This is a close up of the embroidery on a piece of linen table cloth I got from my mother. It might have been in her glory box. That's what we called hope chests in New Zealand. Or sometimes it might be referred to as the bottom drawer.

Day 4 School Days.
My first year at primary school. A time when school classes were about 40 to 45 students. We still learnt to read, write and do arithmetic. I'm so lucky I had great teachers at Fraser Crescent School, Upper Hutt.

Day 3 Sweets.
When I was a kid one of my favourite sweets was a thing called a chocolate fish. So you knew what they looked like I thought I would find a picture to share so typed chocolate fish into papers past, digitized newspaper in New Zealand. The first piece I went to was about an orchestra entertaining in 1933. I scanned down the page to see "Mr & Mrs A.C. Kitto", my paternal Grandparents. Now that's a sweet find. Over two hundred people attended this dance by Mr Bert Steel's Melody Makers' Orchestra.
I did try to find a chocolate fish image to share however they all seemed to be under some type of copyright. If you are interested search google to see the pink marshmallow fish with the thinnest coating of chocolate.
