We had too much to discuss during this week’s Mondays with Myrt, it spilled over into this episode of WACKY Wednesday.
00:28:09 True Lewis: YaY SHELLEY!!!!!!!!
00:28:28 Shelley Murphy: Hey there True!!!! and all…xoxo
00:28:35 Dustin Austin: Hey True!
00:28:43 True Lewis: Hello Dustin!—
00:28:52 Shelley Murphy: Hey there Melissa and Dustin!
00:28:58 Melissa Barker: Hello Everyone!
00:29:06 Dustin Austin: Hey Melissa and Shelly!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
00:29:06 Cousin Russ: Denise Levenick https://thefamilycurator.com/ethics-etiquette-and-old-family-letters
00:30:27 True Lewis: I do have them….I have my own. I don’t think I’ll mind when I’m gone. I’ll be resting in peace.
00:31:00 Betty-Lu Burton: It depends. Are the people still alive? Are you reading them as part of history?
00:31:54 Diane minor: it depends. I have some letters my grandmother sent to her children when she was hospitalized after having a stillborn baby. they are painful to me to read and I feel very protective about sharing the contents.
00:32:54 Jody: found a suitcase full between my parents when dad was in korea during Vietnam war. parents read through them again recently and threw out a bunch. I probably should have just kept quiet about having them and brought them out when they were gone.
00:38:12 Betty-Lu Burton: Newsy letters that talk about family going ons yes I would share. Love letters would depend on what is in them
00:39:38 Betty-Lu Burton: It is beautiful
00:40:28 True Lewis: WoW! Oh My that was a treasure!
00:42:02 Diane minor: Good point Sadie.
00:44:58 Shelley Murphy: are those books behind you Russ as big as they look on the cam?
00:47:02 Shelley Murphy: oh my goodness!
00:47:43 True Lewis: She made a good point….We forget they were young once. My parents were very open as they got older.
00:47:45 Holly Hansen: I was able to fix up a system to digitize my audio tapes. It was pretty simple. I had an old karaoke machine and bought a $8.00 cord to hook it to my computer. You can do it easy Russ.
00:53:50 Shelley Murphy: that is what Thomas Jefferson did, he tracked all of his planting and the weather, etc.
00:55:34 True Lewis: I have a Ledger from a grocery clerk in early 1900’s for one of my Ancestors Dock Henry his account to J. O. Hixson.
00:57:17 Holly Hansen: The Multi-Media Centers does a great job. I send them all my old wire tapes too.
01:01:15 Shelley Murphy: It’s all about telling the stories!
