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.

Side Lanced

On Sunday, August 21, 1927 Bonnie Elmore wrote:  Sunny-Fair. Arose at 10:00. Mary made a fire. I dusted. Shaved at 12:30. Harry came down at 1:00 p.m. and ate dinner. He had his side lanced and look sick. He also took supper with us. Mr. and Mrs. Gross came to see us at 4 p.m. and left at 7:00. We went to bed about 9:39 p.m.

So, not a lot going on with the Elmore's today.  About the same here in 2011 too. Tomorrow is first day of school.  Rachel and I have a church meeting tonight. Busy week coming up at work, plus the kids' school and Caleb's soccer plus, Rachel's work.
