I'm Back- Sort Of...

My G-G Grandmother Ellen Campbell Murray-

Although I wasn't enjoying cleaning house, I was having a great time with my ancestry search these past few days.

My family file statistics now show 1,343 people listed in my family tree!

Sadly, the longevity is now down to an average lifespan of 55 years and 8 months. For the past year it held at 59 years and some-odd months.

I have almost one week left on my Ancestry.com subscription, and intend to make the most of it... after all I'll be 52 this December, so I'd better work fast!

**Update! I'm now have 1,395 people logged onto my family tree, and the average longevity has risen to a whopping 60 years!

You're here!! *blush* I was just, uhrm, cleaning up the liquor cabinet and straightening things so that it would be all pretty when you got back. I wasn't encouraging rabble-rousing or anything.....

Oh, I'm sure you'll live a lot longer than your ancestors! I hope so anyway.

Well we tend to live longer than our Ancestors. I have Ancestry.come and I really should use it more.
Welcome back & no eclectic wasn't encouraging rabble-rousing or anything . . . :)

eclectic-
Everything looks just fine!
Thanks for keeping things clean!

rae ann-
I guess I'll have to wait and see.
One good thing I try to keep in mind is the fact we don't live long enough to develop Alzheimers.

nanina-
Well... my parents both died at the age of 59, so I'm hoping for a little more time than that!
You all were totally cracking me up when I peeked in during my absence!

What, wait *blinks sleepily as she crawls out of the closet*. Um, I think I found another bottle.

Dammit, when did Sierrabella get back.

YEAH!!! SierraBella is back (sorta)

I have missed you tremendously but I do enjoy the little "peek in's" you've made over at my place. Thanks!

Ok, yah....you have to live longer than your parents! I have plans for my Niece to meet (and fall madly in love with) your Grandson when they're old enough. I need you because I can't just track down your daughter and explain to her how I've "seen" her son.

I was also thinking of Eclectic's "Littlest Eclectic" but they're in a different state. That just won't work...oh wait! Did you say that your Grandson might be moving to another state too?

CRAP! All the cuties will be out of state...then what?

Oh little Miss SoozieQ? LE has already called "dibs" on the stunning beauty, Sydney Suzanne. He has pledged to her a blood oath -- (OK, so he scraped himself on the driveway....still, it bled) and has vowed to love none other -- (OK, so actually he said "Oh, that's a baby. Mommy, that's a baby girl. I like that baby." But, he was looking at her pictures on my screen).

Sorry SierraBella, that girl's taken!

I am sure you will set a new generational trend in longevity - and WITHOUT the Alzheimers! If nothing else.... you have pictures of yourself SMILING ;)

squirl-
I returned just yesterday!
Geez, I thought I heard movement in the closet!
Do you need some Pepto Bismol?

soozieq-
Guess I'll have to hang in there and fight eclectic for dating priviledges for my grandson!

eclectic-
*flipping a coin* "Heads I win, tails you lose" OK?

cheesecakey-
I surely hope so!

"You got Pepto?", she asked weakly...

squirl-
Coming right up!

kitty-
Actually I'm not having fun with my ancestry search! I'm doing last minute bashing away at certain 'brick walls' in my family, and getting nowhere!
Hoping to find anything of interest!

Thanks. And you must be very, very long-lived. We need you here. No running off at such a young age. K?

squirl-
I've been able to locate a few more ancestors, and the longevity has increased to 60 years old!

Miss you SierraBella

Just thought I'd let you know....

Blogger cheesecakey said...

I miss you too..

*hic* but I found another bottle...

who's in?

12:46 AM  
Blogger Squirl said...

Well, the longevity is heading in the right direction. You might have to be the one who really skews the curve.

soozieq-
I miss you (all) too!

cheesecakey-
I could use a drink!
Been holed up here doing research for way too long.

squirl-
I certainly hope you're right!
