Hugh not Morris, tablet not computer

Trying to do anything except play on this tablet is not play. Just to go back to the page before is sometimes impossible. Any, I guess Hugh Morris was not really a Morris, but was likely a Sneed.

John and Rachel Morris came to Carroll county AR in the 1840,s.  They had several children including a son, William Crittenton Morris. That Crit sound familiar?  Wm Crittenton Morris was father to Green Jordan Morris.

With this family when they came to Carroll County was a young woman named Rebecca Morris. Rebecca Morris never married here, but she had several children here that used the surname Morris including John Ruth Morris.  John Ruth had a son, Regan Matthew Morris. Regan had a son Hugh Dee Morris. Speculation has it that Rebecca Morris' children were the children of her married neighbor, Peter Sneed.

Morris is not a Morris and a toy is not a real computer, but it is good for reading books and the news.

Saturday, walked about 5 miles

Helen went to clean the Church this afternoon, so she thought I could walk over there and she could haul me home.  The only thing is, I usually try to walk more than 4 miles on Saturday and Sunday and it is only 3 miles to the Church.  I walked on up past the Church to the second Caffery house, and I think I walked about 5 miles total.  I saw goats and eagles at Caffery's.  I think I got some good pictures of the eagles.  I will upload some and see.  I do not like doing pictures on this windows 8 thing.  On the big laptop, I look through my pics and find the ones I want to upload and save them to my main file so they are easy to locate.  That does not work as well on here.

I would like to keep track of the miles I walk and have tried several different ways of keeping up with  the miles.  What I have now is a spreadsheet file in dropbox to record miles.  The problem is if I do not record miles each day, after a day or so I forget.  I think I am going to try to post my miles walked here each day and see if I can remember to do that.  When Christmas is over, maybe I will have more time.  All we have left now except for the family things is Christmas pot luck at Church tomorrow night.  It may just be me as George is going with son to pick up Grandson in Tulsa tomorrow night.  Hannah is feeling much better, but she may not want to go tomorrow night.  I think if she does not want to go, I will just go alone.  Robert never wants to go to any of the Church things, although he sure had fun at the Christmas play.

Kristina sent Robert one of Jake's old Thomas the Train toys.  He really likes it.  Greg got it all back together and it works just fine.

Pictures to follow...
And, I forgot to say,  Gilbert brought  Helen this barn wood coffee table.  It is beautiful and really heavy and sturdy.  he did a great job on it.

Robert says thank you.

Christmas Play, 2014

First, Hannah was sick today with a fever and general virus symptoms, so  she did not go to school today for the Christmas party and did not make it to the Christmas play.  Grandpa stayed home with her.  Aunt Helen, Daddy, Robert, Emily and I went.  Emmy took the pictures.  Robert behaved so very well.  Irene was the star of the show. Gertie was long suffering.

The pictures of Hannah are from dress rehearsal Wednesday night.
