Why Am I SOOOOOOO Obsessed with History?



16142791_10154592645281886_783667239764356166_nThank you to Sean N Michael Rikley-Lancaster from the *Mississippi Valley Textile Museum for allowing me to tell my tales and many opinions at the Algonquin Museum Studies class. Last time I spoke there was in 1991 about small business. Some of these kids had not been born yet LOL

So why am I doing what I do every single day- 7 days a week?  Why do I sit here hour after hour, day after day, and get caught up in time–actually time gone by? Some days I don’t know–and then I get an email from someone saying they saw one of their ancestor’s names- or they read one of my stories on one of my Facebook history pages and remember what their grandparents told them. I see how happy it makes people– so it makes me feel that I am on the right road for my legacy.
