This blog is mainly taken from my Great Grandfather's diary. In 2012 we are in the year 1915, after completing 1916 in 2010 and 1927 in 2011. 1915 is the year that my Great Uncle Norman was born. 1927 is the year that my Great Uncle Roger, was born. 1916 was the year that my grandmother, Annah Lee was born.

My Great-Grandfather's name was Bonnie Elmore and he worked as a clerk or secretary for the old Norfolk & Western Railroad, based in Roanoke, VA. Mary is his wife. Norman is their first born son. The Raines are Mary's parents. Skin is Bonnie's brother along with Jake.

Bonnie's work associates and friends are also mentioned quite a bit. Bonnie does a great job of blending everyday life in 1915 with the mention of some world and USA history as well. I do know from a quick glance ahead that 1915 is going to be quite different as Bonnie did not write quite as much.

After Bonnie's diary entry, I will occasionally make comments, maybe tell a little about life in 2012, possibly some current events, and some musing about the Christian faith.

Uncrated furniture

On Monday, June 12, 1916 Bonnie Elmore wrote: Cloudy-warm. Arose 7:20. Got to work at 8:45. Staples in the office. Wrote deeds. Lumber came to repair porch. Ate supper at Mrs. Raines. Cut weeds and grass and Mr. Raines uncrated Aunt Annah's furniture. Rain hard in evening. I sat up and read paper paper until 11:15 p.m. Carried crates to stable. In 2010, USA tied England 1-1 in World Cup soccer. That would be considered almost a win for USA. The family went to see the new Karate Kid movie tonight and it was great, maybe better than the first. Busy day at church tomorrow with a youth activity and deacon training. Sermon is about not missing opportunities that God puts before us. Rachel got a part in a locally produced movie. She is reading script for first time now. I think she has a funny part.
