Who am I? I’m still discovering just who I am, I suppose.

A. Powell Davis writes that “Life is just a chance to grow a soul.”

I don’t think  we ever stop learning . . . and growing . . . and becoming . . .

We have settled in Seguin, Texas – now – in our Twilight years.  I was born in New Mexico and Dear Hubby was born in Louisiana (talk about Culture Shock, I suppose . . . however, we will be married fifty years before long and it has been a perfect fit for both of us).

We’ve lived in Texas several times (Dallas, Houston – some back and forth moving during the Oil Boom Years).  I lived in Denver, Colorado as a young girl;  then as a young married couple with four children, we moved from Houston to Denver.  Then back to Houston.  Then back to Denver!  Now – Seguin is our final home – and we love it here.

Let me know about you – as you visit my Aimless blog!

My 2010 BLOG –

Aimless Musings 2010

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog…I always check out my visitor’s blogs, but when I saw your title, I was doubly intrigued. You see, I travel very little, and don’t get too far from home, but I have actually been to Sequin. It was long ago, for a childhood friend’s wedding. She had moved to Sequin after our freshman year and went on to college, marriage, and career in Texas. I flew into San Antonio on a Thursday and few home on Sunday, so saw little of the area. But I will never forget the horrific storm that blew through while I was there. Made me want to get back to California very quickly.

    I love your site and will stop in again. Come on by my place when you can.

  2. Why, thank you, mam, for adding me to your blogroll. I feel downright honored.

  3. Hi there! I have really been enjoying your blog. I found it while researching my great-great-grandfather, Count Caldwell. I will be checking in frequently!

    • Ellen, so good to hear from a cousin (don’t know the degree of cousin – but of course, we are related). Count was my great-uncle, brother to my grandfather, Berlin Caldwell.

  4. Hi there. While working on family history i ran across a shared ancestor – Richard Bark Foreman. I enjoyed your post about him and appreciate the reference to the book. If you have any other information, of course I would be interested.

  5. Virgil Quattrocchi

    At age 88 – still am young enough to be AMAZED! I Googled “Avon House Publishers and somehow or other was eventually directed to your Blog “My Mother Was A Poet”. Saw the letter (1940) she got from Avon House. I imagine they are no longer around (83 years have passed. I was searching for a copy of Lyrics or Song Hits, probably 1940 or 1941. I had several lyrics in either 1940 or 1942.

    I am a cousin on the Salmon/Sammon side. Would love to correspond with you on that line. Please email me

  7. Dear Hope,

    We used to correspond occasionally and you helped me immensely in sorting out my members of our shared families. I put my genealogy on the back burner for several years because of the demands of my growing children (my youngest is now 18 and heading off to study marine biology at university this year, leaving me finally with an empty nest). I’ve now thrown myself back into it and was so pleased to find your blog today. I hope you don’t mind if I contact you with questions from time to time.

    Best regards,
    Deb Comer

  8. I see the Letter from Columbian Music Publishers here, and I have an ancestor that had a song published by this company. Did Her song ever get printed?
