Please help. Bossy has fallen and she can’t get up.
It’s been months and months since Bossy last updated her Family Tree story. And with each passing day, Bossy finds it more difficult to dive in and continue because, also, does anyone besides Bossy’s best friend her really care?
Quick Poll: should Bossy continue the Family Tree story, or relinquish this space to something else. And if Bossy does continue, should she begin with a refresher post along the lines of, “Bossy’s family was born a poor black child?”
If you don’t know what Bossy is talking about, the story begins with a crazy old American Indian woman.
Bossy thanks you for your help in advance.
Acher saysMarch 19, 2009 at 8:42 am
YES! Keep up the family tree. I was just wondering the other day when we were going to get a new installment. I love the old photos!
Lauren saysMarch 19, 2009 at 8:54 am
Uhhhh…. DUH! Of COURSE you should keep this feature!! Please!
Marty saysMarch 19, 2009 at 8:59 am
More, more, more! I have been patiently waiting!
Catherine McP saysMarch 19, 2009 at 9:00 am
This is where I started reading your blog. Found and read this whole story before even reading your main page, so yes get a move on! I’m still trying to figure out how I even found this story. Beats the crap outta me!
Diane G saysMarch 19, 2009 at 9:00 am
I would love more of the family story! You gotta!
Betsey saysMarch 19, 2009 at 9:09 am
Yes, more please!
Al saysMarch 19, 2009 at 9:11 am
Keep it up!
Dorrie saysMarch 19, 2009 at 9:13 am
Please continue. I love readying the history. And some day, you will be so glad it is documented. The one thing I regret is not getting, in writing. more stories from my grandparents and father.
Jill saysMarch 19, 2009 at 9:17 am
Please continue! I’ve been waiting for a new chapter.
melinda saysMarch 19, 2009 at 9:17 am
Keep going!!!! I love the stories!
Mary saysMarch 19, 2009 at 9:22 am
Bossy, I have been waiting patiently for this to return!! This and the barbie doll recaps with headless Ken are my favorites! Since you say your mother lives hear you now you must continue! When/how/why do they leave Wyoming?? CONTINUE!!!
shanna saysMarch 19, 2009 at 9:29 am
Most definitely keep this section. I love it! I hope to someday be so talented or inspired or copycatish(yes that is a new word) to do one of my own. Teach me, Wise One. 😉
Tanndavis saysMarch 19, 2009 at 9:46 am
I Love it!!! Keep it!
Julianne saysMarch 19, 2009 at 9:46 am
You must finish the story. Get to work. I am waiting for the next installment.XXOO
Marnie saysMarch 19, 2009 at 9:51 am
I have been waiting on the edge of my seat for what happens next to Walt and Bert and Dondi! Please, go on!!
Martha in Kansas saysMarch 19, 2009 at 9:53 am
I’m enjoying them. I hope you’ll continue.
Jenn saysMarch 19, 2009 at 9:54 am
I LOVE the family tree!!
heartworks saysMarch 19, 2009 at 9:55 am
It’s one of my favorite features!
Deborah Non Blogger saysMarch 19, 2009 at 9:57 am
I hear the cry for help….and the answer is-
Please continue, I need more adopted ancestors.
teri saysMarch 19, 2009 at 9:58 am
Yes, it’s like another story of Bossy’s life. Great photos and stories.
JenniferB saysMarch 19, 2009 at 9:59 am
Don’t give up Bossy — I love the family tree updates and keep checking, hoping Bossy has gotten it together and posted an update! So hurry!
Emily saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:04 am
I started reading your blog because a friend directed me to one of the family history posts. I was so mesmerized by it that I read the entire saga in a day. Please continue the series. It’s not just your family’s story; it’s the story of an American family learning to make do. It’s something we can all relate to, and it’s the part of history that we never got in our high school textbooks. Please keep going.
carson saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:09 am
You MUST continue the Family Tree – I read it from beginning to end when I first found your blog. Your family is so much more interesting than mine. Would you consider adoption? I’m very low maintenance.
aj saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:11 am
PLEASE continue. It is fascinating reading, and I love it.
Mimi saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:12 am
Pretty please with a cherry on top continue?
April in CT saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:14 am
I have been hoping for said ‘months and months’ that this would be updated. Today I’m excited to see some action even if it’s not at update..a glimmer of hope. In other words continue the dern story!
sonrie saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:20 am
Yes! Please continue…this is one of my favorite parts…as well as the Adventures of Barbie and Silent Headless Ken (but that’s another story).
SherylW saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:26 am
Keep the family tree, I love the stories of Bert, Walt, Dondi and everyone else. Family tree is one of my fav parts of the blog …
Tatiana saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:28 am
I always love peering into the family histories of others, which means I usually have to liquor people up and ask leading questions. But you are just giving it away! So please continue. I’m on a budget and can’t afford much booze.
Kathy from NJ saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:28 am
I agree with commenters 1 through 27
Kathy from NJ saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:28 am
Oops, through 29
bossy's friend martha saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:29 am
I vote refresher course and then MORE!
Linda saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:30 am
LOVE your family tree! Want more!
Laura saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:32 am
It is riveting. Please add more.
Linda_M saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:34 am
When I first found your site, I read through all of the family tree posts. I’ve been anticipating the next one *forever*. Please continue the story. (Pretty please?)
Meg saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:38 am
A resounding YES to continue!
sherry saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:39 am
Please continue your family stories. But the music you’re listening to? Not so much.
karen saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:44 am
Please finish it. That’s what got me hooked in the first place. But like the old days where you had long funny nicey posts and not just a summary of one picture.
Chookooloonks saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:47 am
You were born a poor black child?
I KNEW IT!!
ErinM saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:47 am
Keep going! What happens when Walt become Project Engineer? Will they ever move back to NJ? Will they ever all be content again?
Joie saysMarch 19, 2009 at 11:02 am
Heavens, yes! I felt like I was dropped when I got to the last entry and there was no more. Please keep writing. A plot summary might be helpful but just keep writing!
anne marie in philly saysMarch 19, 2009 at 11:04 am
yes yes yes!
it’s history and a slice of long-ago america and wicked kewl!
Kristina saysMarch 19, 2009 at 11:11 am
Please keep it! This is a wonderful feature! I love it!
steph saysMarch 19, 2009 at 11:14 am
Please continue! 🙂
valerie saysMarch 19, 2009 at 11:20 am
please continue! i need to know what happens next!
Vicky saysMarch 19, 2009 at 11:24 am
Please oh please continue!
ellen saysMarch 19, 2009 at 11:29 am
Oh, Bossy! How do I love the family tree…let me count the ways! I love looking at the great clothes from the forties! I love the cliffhanger-y way you tell the story! I love how it reminds ME of my love of history! I love learning about what your family’s life was like WAY BACK WHEN! DO NOT STOP THE FAMILY TREE!
Tasha saysMarch 19, 2009 at 11:31 am
Definitely continue, please! I also wouldn’t worry about a refresher chapter — that’s what the archives are for.
Emily Breyfogle saysMarch 19, 2009 at 11:38 am
Fo’ shizzle you need to keep this up! I have been awaiting the continuation of the family drama for MONTHS!
Jessie saysMarch 19, 2009 at 11:38 am
Yes Miss Bossy, you have to continue. I love the way you tell your family’s story, It was one of the first things that endeared me to your site. And just think how great it will be for your kids to have this all written for posterity.
I have read the whole story up to now, but since it has been a while you may want to do a one or two paragraph refresher.
Meg saysMarch 19, 2009 at 11:40 am
Yes, yes, yes!! I totally <3 the family pictures and stories!!!
The Other Lisa saysMarch 19, 2009 at 11:43 am
No, please for god’s sake, find something else to write about!
Sorry – I’m kidding. It’s unanimous. Bring back Walt and Bert and Dondi. It’s lovely that you have so many photos and stories. My mom’s family all worked at Kodak and that side of the family is richly documented – it’s a huge and wonderful legacy.
But – if you don’t have energy for your subject matter – how will you gin yourself up for writing about it? Gin is always an option, of course (and perhaps the origin of the phrase).
Now that’s a conundrum I can not help you with. But I join with your legions of screaming fans in fervently hoping that you find the will to resume your family history.
katie saysMarch 19, 2009 at 11:46 am
Pleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleasepleaseplease keep this up!!!!!!!! Oh pleeeeease! It is fantastic.
bdaiss saysMarch 19, 2009 at 11:49 am
I’ll hop on the bandwagon. I love the family tree stories. I’d hate to see them go. And I think you can skip the refresher. The link to the archives is plenty.
Ambry saysMarch 19, 2009 at 11:59 am
Good golly yes! Like everyone else, I’ve been waiiiiiting & waiiiiiiiiting for another post. I’ve sort of fallen in love with Bossy’s DNA.
Jenni saysMarch 19, 2009 at 12:09 pm
PLEASE continue. Thanks. 🙂
Sara S saysMarch 19, 2009 at 12:20 pm
I saw the picture in my google reader and my first thought was, “oooh! old-timey picture! Bossy updated the family tree! yayyyyyy!” And then there was no update and I was sad. Stop making me sad!
Shannon Hunter saysMarch 19, 2009 at 12:20 pm
Please continue Bossy … 🙂
kay saysMarch 19, 2009 at 12:20 pm
If I can’t have a fascinating family of my own, then I want to share yours.
If you’re willing to keep doing it, I’m committed to keep reading it.
Also? I’m nosy about stuff like that.
jess saysMarch 19, 2009 at 12:21 pm
Yes, please. More.
victoria saysMarch 19, 2009 at 12:21 pm
We love the family stories. Please don’t stop.
Me saysMarch 19, 2009 at 12:22 pm
YES! YES! YES!
Add more, please.
The Domestic Goddess saysMarch 19, 2009 at 12:22 pm
PLEASE OH PLEASE! It’s an awesome story!
Corinne saysMarch 19, 2009 at 12:24 pm
Bossy…I love you…but have you lost your mind?!??! YES YES AND YES CONTINUE!!!! PLEASE!!!!
Half Assed Kitchen saysMarch 19, 2009 at 12:39 pm
Keep it up, Sistah! We love it.
A recap might be nice. Especially Bossy-style.
Deborah saysMarch 19, 2009 at 12:43 pm
MORE, please!! Definitely continue.
Madness saysMarch 19, 2009 at 12:44 pm
Madness checks the family tree straight up with a twist DAILY to see if youve remembered that we are all WAITING for the next post.
You MUST continue!!
Momo Fali saysMarch 19, 2009 at 12:45 pm
I check every day, then with a big sigh I have to click away because there’s nothing there. MORE, PLEASE!
Hannah saysMarch 19, 2009 at 12:52 pm
BOSSY! You must finish!
I love this story & seeing the vinatge pictures!!
dalgal saysMarch 19, 2009 at 12:53 pm
Renee in Seattle saysMarch 19, 2009 at 12:57 pm
please continue IF there is a fascinating conclusion. If however, everyone lives boring-ly ever after…. I’m good.
Shelly Kang saysMarch 19, 2009 at 12:58 pm
As if it hasn’t been said enough already, PLEASE! Give us more of the family story. And then, when you’re done, collate it all and put it into a book. It’s better than most biographical fiction I’ve read.
Grandma J saysMarch 19, 2009 at 1:01 pm
Being Bossy’s best friend, I could have told Bossy that the saga about Walt, Bert and little Dondi was the same kind of sage that made huge stars out of the likes of Bogie and Bacall.
If Hollywood ever got ahold of this story, Bossy would never have to worry about her pitiful poverty party again. Bossy would be hostessing wild extravaganza’s, insisting that her party planner use excessive Christmas lights everywhere.
No matter what, Grandma J loves Bossy just as much as she loves Dondi, Walt and Bert. She also wonders if Bossy might be trapsing down to the Blogfest in Virginia this July…because Grandma J would plan ahead and bring extra Ritz crackers.
chrissy saysMarch 19, 2009 at 1:14 pm
Please do, but only if you feel it … don ‘t force anything that doesn’t feel right, y’know?
Mr Farty saysMarch 19, 2009 at 1:14 pm
Mr Farty wants to know how Bossy is related to Barbie and Headless Ken.
Ashley saysMarch 19, 2009 at 1:17 pm
You HAVE to! I have loved the story!
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysMarch 19, 2009 at 1:19 pm
And all this time I thought Grandma J. was MY best friend.
Regardless, your BFF is driving all the way from Texas to the Va. Blogfest….you could spend some quality time eating Ritz crackers face to face.
Cactus Petunia saysMarch 19, 2009 at 1:22 pm
Is that what you’ve been waiting for? Validation? Well, get on with it, girl! We’re all dying to hear more!
Chris saysMarch 19, 2009 at 1:23 pm
Bossy, please keep it up, I find it interesting. If I ever get my genealogy website rebuilt I’ll send you then link when it’s done.
Melissa saysMarch 19, 2009 at 1:43 pm
I would like to see it continue.
I think just picking up where you left off would be fine. It’s easy to find the link to the beginning if anyone comes in at the middle.
Jenny saysMarch 19, 2009 at 1:47 pm
Okay, this is my FAVORITE feature of your website. It’s charming and lovely and just so wonderful. Please don’t banish it!
Denise saysMarch 19, 2009 at 1:48 pm
You have to keep it up! Please! I need to know what happens next!
Jeez Louise woman! DO IT!
Margie saysMarch 19, 2009 at 1:49 pm
Are you kidding??? Every day I come here and my eyes immediately dart hopefully to the Family Album box… please, will this be the day she gives us the next installment? I have to know what happened next… and the pictures- LOVE the pictures.. so to answer your quastion.., “yes, we care”!
Franca Bollo saysMarch 19, 2009 at 2:04 pm
Please Bossy, I want some more.
— Oliver T.
Cat saysMarch 19, 2009 at 2:06 pm
The first day I met I am Bossy I spent over an hour reading the family tree story. I loved it. I was so happy when you posted a new installment a couple of months ago, but then nothing. It would be wrong to just leave every body hanging – both your ancestors and your readers.
Me saysMarch 19, 2009 at 2:19 pm
I’ve always wondered who Bossy talked to get all the wonderful details of Walt and Bert’s lives. Also, how on earth did you get such wonderful pictures! We only have a few pics of my ancestors, and they all look stodgy and boring. I wonder who they were, and what there lives were like.
Melody saysMarch 19, 2009 at 2:26 pm
julie saysMarch 19, 2009 at 2:36 pm
I love love love this feature! Please don’t get rid of it.

Amanda saysMarch 19, 2009 at 3:15 pm
Tammy saysMarch 19, 2009 at 3:22 pm
Yes, please keep up the Family Tree posts. Love ’em!
Jen saysMarch 19, 2009 at 3:32 pm
Please continue. The Family Tree was the reason I put I Am Bossy on my Google page. I love this feature, even on an irregular basis!
Susan saysMarch 19, 2009 at 3:58 pm
Please keep going – it’s as much my favourite section as everything else on this blog!
Heather saysMarch 19, 2009 at 4:28 pm
More. yes. please.
Lori saysMarch 19, 2009 at 4:34 pm
I love it and have been wondering if all the rest of the photos (and story) were carried off to Oz by a tornado or something and that was why you were keeping us in suspense!
dgm saysMarch 19, 2009 at 4:46 pm
Don’t get rid of it! I love this feature!
Laurellee saysMarch 19, 2009 at 4:47 pm
Yep, I too, like all of the other commenters, love the family tree. You are a great story-teller, and the pics are really awesome! MORE MORE MORE!
Gail saysMarch 19, 2009 at 4:53 pm
You can’t stop now, Go forth and blog
fabs saysMarch 19, 2009 at 5:22 pm
I hope everyday that you’ve posted to the family tree! Please keep going!!
TamiW saysMarch 19, 2009 at 5:29 pm
I enjoyed reading about your family history. Please resume!
LauraS saysMarch 19, 2009 at 6:00 pm
Don’t leave us hanging! Please continue…I check every day.
Martha saysMarch 19, 2009 at 6:00 pm
Oh Bossy….Don’t stop now. It is such a great story, it NEEDS to be shared. This is like when you go on vacation and lose a book you only read half of.
maybelle saysMarch 19, 2009 at 6:24 pm
Yes Please!!! Its my favorite Bossy feature and I have been checking every day!
Stacy saysMarch 19, 2009 at 6:31 pm
Continue! It keeps me entertained at work!
Grandma J saysMarch 19, 2009 at 6:41 pm
See Bossy? See what you started? :))
Shayera saysMarch 19, 2009 at 6:53 pm
I say yes!
Andrea saysMarch 19, 2009 at 7:05 pm
Oh yes, definitely keep going!
Amber saysMarch 19, 2009 at 7:10 pm
I love reading this section of your site!
caleal saysMarch 19, 2009 at 7:10 pm
I luurrve the family tree section.
Eliza saysMarch 19, 2009 at 7:45 pm
I love this section so much that I’ve been hoping that the “research” you’re doing in the bookstore is related to the fact that you are writing a family history book starring Bert, Walt and all our other favorite characters. Even the man with St. Vitus Dance–which I learned about from Bossy. And then Google.
Samantha saysMarch 19, 2009 at 7:48 pm
YES! Please continue! I love this section and look at it everyday and wonder when you’ll write more. Thanks Bossy…..love your blog!
operagal saysMarch 19, 2009 at 7:55 pm
Amanda O saysMarch 19, 2009 at 8:11 pm
I check everyday for another family tree post. But what if what you want to add is even better? Oh great, now I’m conflicted.
andrea saysMarch 19, 2009 at 8:28 pm
YES PLEASE!!! I’ve been waiting with baited breath!! Waiting for the next installment like it’s a soap opera or something!!
Anne saysMarch 19, 2009 at 8:37 pm
Please continue. I check every day for an update. Just take up where you left off.
living vicariously saysMarch 19, 2009 at 8:43 pm
absolutely continue- I check every day. You can really tell a good story!
Virginia saysMarch 19, 2009 at 9:17 pm
I have been waiting and waiting!!! Yes PLEASE continue and I wouldn’t object to a refresher.
Emily saysMarch 19, 2009 at 9:50 pm
Don’t stop!!! I LOVE the family tree!!
As to a refresher, eh, up to you. Though I don’t think it’s necessary since you have the old ones archived.
Kay Bryan saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:30 pm
we love all things Bossy. Go with your inner self (or whatever) and do what makes YOU happy. Personally, I need a few more Dansko posts.
lindylou saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:35 pm
Please, Bossy, please! You must press on!
junebug saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:41 pm
I loved the family tree too. Please continue the saga. I want to see more. Thank you.
CupcakeMurphy saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:48 pm
Do we CARE?????????? Um. Let’s see. Do you LIKE DANSKO CLOGS? Is your dog large? Are we happy that we don’t have to vomit from upset because Bush is not our president any longer? YES!!!!
CupcakeMurphy saysMarch 19, 2009 at 10:50 pm
Because I am anal retentive I must clarify that I meant I am GLAD that Bush is not our president. I would never want to be known as one who liked That One and his evil cronies.
Tanis saysMarch 19, 2009 at 11:11 pm
we all love it.
janet saysMarch 19, 2009 at 11:27 pm
This is ot a question of whether or not you should contimue. It’s obviously unanumous! Now please drag it out, make it last as long as you can, because we all know the story has to end before very long. Re-cap with your Barbie actors!
caro saysMarch 19, 2009 at 11:29 pm
I, too,, started reading your blog after becoming hooked on the family tree posts. PLEASE keep them up!!!!
semqf saysMarch 19, 2009 at 11:47 pm
Considering I just read the whole series from start to finish for the first time over the course of my afternoon, I’d say you better keep at it!
Marilyn saysMarch 20, 2009 at 12:40 am
please. don’t stop now!
Bush Babe of Granite Glen saysMarch 20, 2009 at 7:40 am
I love this part of your blog actually… even if you don’t cobweb here too often!!!
Bush Babe of Granite Glen saysMarch 20, 2009 at 7:42 am
Just want to reassure Cupcake Murphy that I am no relation to your ex-President. Don’t want any puke in your comments section. I am thoughtful like that…
Scherrie saysMarch 20, 2009 at 9:35 am
This is a most amazing story. And the pictures are fabulous! I vote for you to keep on going with this. Thanks.
Sheila saysMarch 20, 2009 at 10:30 am
Tha family tree is my favorite part of BOSSY.
Judy saysMarch 20, 2009 at 10:51 am
Please continue…..reading The Family Tree is what got me hooked on Bossy. Well, that and the Bossy Videos.
Lara saysMarch 20, 2009 at 11:05 am
Yes, Bossy! I really enjoyed reading your Family Tree and have missed it since it’s been gone!
Elizabeth saysMarch 20, 2009 at 11:20 am
Bossy, please don’t give up the family tree!
Carla in Dallas saysMarch 20, 2009 at 11:34 am
I just found this! Please continue! I feel like I know your family now.
habanerogal saysMarch 20, 2009 at 12:00 pm
A million times yes dig the story a ton but just didn’t want to hassle you a ton about not updating it lately.
melanietai saysMarch 20, 2009 at 1:30 pm
yes, i am also waiting patiently. giving you space, letting you live your life, yet silently pleading for more of the story. i don’t care if you start someone else’s story….
maureen in IL who doesn't have her own blog because she is too busy reading EVERYONE else saysMarch 20, 2009 at 2:55 pm
Been waitin’ and waitin’, it’s about time you updated the history
kw saysMarch 20, 2009 at 2:57 pm
Please keep it! This is the one thing that I usually check your blog for. It is the only interesting family history i’ve ever seen. I’d love to be able to do this for my family!
Cindy Z saysMarch 20, 2009 at 5:13 pm
I love the family stories and check each day if there is an update. I would just jump back in 🙂
Deedle saysMarch 20, 2009 at 5:35 pm
Ohmigod! Of course you have to do this…it’s what made me love you originally and I have been awfully sad that you haven’t updated.
Tammy saysMarch 20, 2009 at 7:27 pm
You MUST continue! Period.
Carrie saysMarch 20, 2009 at 8:19 pm
I sat in my computer room one day and read through the entire postings of the family tree and feel like I’m missing out on a really great book I had been reading….
Suebob saysMarch 21, 2009 at 12:33 am
The family album is the most genius thing I have ever seen on the whole internet.
Mrs. Kindergarten saysMarch 21, 2009 at 8:50 am
I’ve been waiting and waiting for a Family Tree update! Please don’t give up on it, it’s one of my favorite parts of one of my favorite blogs!
Jill saysMarch 21, 2009 at 10:08 am
I like it. Please keep going.

Unemployed Susan saysMarch 21, 2009 at 4:34 pm
Just pick up where you left off & go, baby.

Please continue your family history. This is my favorite part. I love the old pictures and the stories. What happens next?

Definitely keep it! Family Album Straight Up with a Twist was the feature that first endeared me to Bossy, and many months later here I still am…!
~annie saysMarch 23, 2009 at 8:18 am
I like the “Family Album” so please continue!
Luanne saysMarch 23, 2009 at 10:23 am
I NEED to know more about Bert and the fam.
Elle M saysMarch 23, 2009 at 12:36 pm
Well, I’ve just sat here and read it all… you have no choice but to continue now!
heatherw saysMarch 23, 2009 at 2:03 pm
Yes- please continue!
Liz saysMarch 23, 2009 at 2:09 pm
Bossy, I’m not even going to read these other 168 comments. I know what they say already. Please continue! I’ve been checking the family tree spot every day!
amy saysMarch 23, 2009 at 7:18 pm
I miss it, it’s actually how i started reading you! Please continue.
suz saysMarch 23, 2009 at 9:44 pm
I enjoy the family journal. Maybe a recap of what’s happened so far would be helpful, and then PLEASE keep going!
joanie saysMarch 24, 2009 at 10:17 am
Your family history is what initially drew me to your blog. One thing I’m dying to know is do you have any more wacky stories about that crazy American Indian Lady? Has she been documented anywhere? Like with Child Protective Services (or its forerunner)? And the sheriff guy?
I think you should contact the author Tracy Kidder — this is right up his line. Or maybe Tony Horwitz. You’ve already done all the hard work.
Amanda saysMarch 24, 2009 at 3:09 pm
YES! More, please!
Sharron T. saysMarch 24, 2009 at 3:51 pm
Yes please. I really enjoyed the story and love the way you write. Please if you have time, continue.
Eloise saysMarch 25, 2009 at 2:51 am
Please continue with the story!

Your family tree section inspired me to blog-publish my own grandmother’s stories. While my stuff is quite different from your approach, I wouldn’t have thought of doing it without your family tree coming first.
Please continue it; it’s fantastic.

Dive back into the family tree! I’ve enjoyed each chapter.
Stephanie T. saysMarch 26, 2009 at 12:50 pm
Please continue because it’s one of my favorite features.

Dear D-lightful Bossy One-
While you are painting, making toast in you fab-you-lust toaster, or slurping down your Kefir. pronounced like Kiefer, as in Kiefer Sutherland, think about your fabulous family and IF, and only, If you have a stellar idea, and YOU are excited about it … Then you write about the family.
It is brilliant and so fun to read. You are one of the bright spots in the blogosphere.

So I make it an even 180 who want you to continue with the story. Please?
Janet saysMarch 29, 2009 at 8:52 pm
Yes, please, back up into that tree–family, that is.
LeahBear saysMarch 30, 2009 at 12:48 pm
I’m totally late on putting in my 2 cents (not that you need it, since obvy everyone has decided that you ARE continuing), but yes, pleeeease keep up with the family story!
AuntBaaa saysMarch 30, 2009 at 5:24 pm
Am I the last one to comment? I love this, please don’t end the family tree. You inspired me to post great old family photos on my site too. Please keep going with it!
Lise saysMarch 31, 2009 at 1:57 pm
PLEAS PLEASE PLEASE keep going! It’s my very favorite part of this blog (besides you of course!)
Mary Pat Killmer saysApril 1, 2009 at 1:16 pm
I LOVE LOVE the family tree.. one of the side bar button thingy’s I ALWAYS click on. You can’t stop until you decided to start a blog. I insist! (please)
janny226 saysApril 1, 2009 at 9:47 pm
Oh, please please continue it! And start with any refresher you want. Or not. Just write some more!
Jen saysApril 3, 2009 at 12:51 pm
What everyone else said. I LOVE this story.
Xi_Heather saysApril 6, 2009 at 7:57 pm
Refresher or not, I’m just happy that you’re continuing.
Reeb saysApril 7, 2009 at 12:02 pm
How’d I miss this cry for encouragement? I was just resigned to having to wait and wait for the next installment; so never checked back. So happy that you’ve recommenced, at least a little. Thanks for doing it. I guess you got your encouragement x 189.
Michele P saysMay 27, 2009 at 2:23 pm
OK, I just spent the entirety of a painfully boring conference call reading your family history. It’s absolutely riveting and I love it! Thanks so much for sharing!!
