Fullers Pond Family Tree

Hi All ....

As per previous emails ive explored starting an internet family tree....

Click on this link to Fullers Pond Family Tree and join this "Family Tree" site as well .... all info from everyone is needed to ensure this Family Tree is a success for future generations!

At this stage this is the best programme I can find for this purpose... its not as "pretty" as I would like it to be but these are the shortcomings of free internet software. It is a little confusing to navigate to start with so take your time, I found that the "Pedigree & Descendancy" options show the tree well.

Firstly, a couple of rules!

A) Privacy (a)- Living Family Members - If a living family member does not appear on this updated family tree site it is because of their wish's - direct all enquiries to them, not me... im only following their wish's! ... also if you wish for your details to be omitted please email me.
B) Privacy (b)- Living Family Members - Due to the very high number of "Info Bots" always searching the internet for more "Big Brother Info"... I have purposely omitted Birth Dates, Marriage Dates and all other personal info and ask that anyone adding data to this tree respect this same privacy for everyone. (See attached pic of "Info Bots")C) Accuracy - As per Jim's email comment - any info that is added must be accurate! Please feel free to address all of my spelking mistakes... Thanks Jim :)

I do Hope & Trust that everyone will pay all "Due Respect" for all our Family Members -Past&Present- as to the intentions of any ommitions & additions.

Love to All

Visit with Kevin 17th July

Hi All ....

Today I went and visited with Kevin for the day. It has been over 6 weeks since my last visit. He has been to visit it his sister in Taree - 10hrs drive south. He had a nice visit with other relatives as well.... was good to have him return safe as he drove himself the entire trip, doing the write thing and stopping heaps and with an overnite stop half way.

We chatted for a while before one of his neighbors noticed I was visiting and insisted we stop over for coffee. Then the conversation turned twards fish tanks - not by my doing - the neighbors husband has recently passed away making conversation even harder as it was he & I that did all the chatting in the past. She asked if I would take the fish tank away as she had no knoweldge of it and to add to it, she is not very mobile as it is..... so the day quickly dropped in overall tone.... the main topic was now turned into one of our mutual loss's of loved ones.

After the tank was empty and loaded Kevin invited me back for another coffee (im realy getting bloated now!!!) ..... and started a conversation with ...
"Well Joe, its time I admit something that ive kept from you for 6 months" .... "When we were waiting for a death certificate, I didnt tell you the whole truth about the length of time that it had taken" ...... "When I recieved the death cert I noticed first it wasnt your mothers Dr's name on it, then I re-looked at the name {Elizabeth Anne Mobbs}.... so after a couple of phone calls, as it happens.... both ladies passed away on the same day." ...... "I didnt want to add more stress to anyone else's plate, so I delt with it without telling you."
I thanked him for his honesty then chewed his left ear about doing it all by himself...... Kevin replied "Your mother would have done the same.... then moved to the right ear!"
We had a great laugh and a sad cry together.

Here's a quick pic before I packed up and headed home.

Kevin pass's his 'Ello's & Love to All.

Cookies Competition

Just to lighten the moods.....
Here is my first effort ....
Now we just wait a while for the new tech of "Websmells" to go mainstream.

Jim > did you get a pic of your cookies?
Yes he did.... and here they are ....

Unfortunately and obviously, Judy and I have never had the pleasure of Grandma's cookies.... only the recipe that Judy posted from (Aunt Anna Seeley 1925)

Happy Independence Day USA

Happy Independence Day USA
Today is the day I continue one of Mothers favorite traditions.

It is my great honour to now fly Mother's Flag, both to carry on Mothers tradition and to Honour Mothers Memory.

Star Spangled Banner
Star Spangled Banner - Instrumental

Oh! say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
W hat so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?

And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof thro' the night that our flag was still there.
Oh! say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen thro' the mist of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep.
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?

Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream
'Tis the star-spangled banner. Oh! long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footstep's pollution.

No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation,
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the Heav'n - rescued land
Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserved us a nation.

Then conquer we must, for our cause is just,
And this be our motto--"In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

We Will Love You Always Mother
