~ A new avenue to explore ~
In relation to this post here, I have to thank those of you who took the time to answer my questions about American Social Security numbers. Over the weekend I discovered, thanks to the power of the Internet, that you can apply to see the initial request record for a SS#, as long as the individual in question is dead and that it is for family history purposes. So, nothing ventured, nothing gained ~ 2 forms and a payment slip filled in and ready to post.

Good Morning Ruth Sweetie...
You never stop amazing me. How do you do it? You are like the energizer bunny that just keeps on going, and going and going. You have more energy than anyone I know of.

I would love to be a fly on the wall, to watch you for one day. I would lose weight just watching I am sure.

When is your trip to DC? Is it coming soon? I wish you were coming to Phoenix. I would love to meet you. One day perhaps?

Have a gorgeous day sweet friend. I am so thrilled you were able to get help with the socials.

Country hugs and much love, Sherry
