No Post today.    She is wrapping up her first month of teaching in Roswell NM.  Still to come she goes to the fair with a date!

As I look through old newspapers, I am surprised to see how many times the name of my Great-Grandfather comes up.  He was a Methodist Missionary, but seemed to get a lot of press.   His name comes up regular in church news, but he also received a lot of press about the Mexican Revolution.   You can tell he was well respected and also well loved by his congregation and when he passed away in 1963.  I found his picture printed in the center of the front page of the Colorado Springs Gazette-Telegraph.  See below.
