My name is Catherine L. Foote. I have been called Cathy, Katie, Cathy Lou, Cat, Kate, Daughter, Sister, Friend, Wife, Mother, Grandma! But you can call me Kate.
I am legally a Senior Citizen - which doesn't hold much glamor, but would occasionally get me a 10% discount on meals, though I rarely eat out. I have all the attributes of a Senior Citizen: gray hair, arthritis, forgetfulness, a big lap and a big bosom to cuddle grandchildren. My body is totally aware that we have attained a venerable old age, but my mind is in constant rebellion! The body wins as far as what I can physically do - but the mind is way ahead with the possibilities of what I can think, and say, and write.
So I write...
I write about all kinds of things, but my favorites are family - from ancestors to descendants (read grandchildren.) So it follows that I have a passion for Genealogy! Additionally I write about 'current events'. So, I have a passion for politics. After that I write about all kinds of topics - it's my computer and I'll write anything that I want to! If your going to read my blog you'll have to be prepared to encounter subjects from A to Z - oh, and before I forget, you should know that I don't write like a machine, everyday at the same time. I am a writer, not a newspaper.
I think that's about enough for you to know about me here. If I'm good at writing a blog, and you're good about reading it, you'll surely end up knowing far more about me than you ever wanted!
Because I have a passion for Genealogy, and because I am a Senior Citizen I have one or two (or more) objectives for this blog - the main one being writing about my own family history, in the hopes that one or more members of my very large family (realizing that senior citizens don't have a very good shelf life) will get bitten by the bug and be prepared to pick up for me one day. I have a few candidates in mind - they don't know who they are - but I haven't seen the light that points me to the "chosen one." If you are a genealogist you know exactly what that means. And you know that the choice is not mine, and it is not the privilege of any of my descendants ~ it is only the Ancestors who make the decision, who pick "The Chosen One."
