Booker T. Washington said . . .

"There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs -- partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs....There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who do not want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public."

Could he possibly have had premonitions about people such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton?

Back to work

It was a nice, long weekend. I don't get those very often, as I tend to like to work the holidays, mostly because of the money. But, THIS holiday weekend felt good! The reunion was wonderful. I saw people there that I had never seen before. Most of them that I HAD seen before, I had not seen for at least 15 years. Much can change in a relatively short period of time.

BEST of all, our son went. He doesn't do very much with us, anymore, so it's very much a treat for him to be with us for any length of time.

We left Saturday, after I got off work, and spent the night at a very nice Best Western in Campbellsville, KY. We had stayed there the last time we were in KY. It was a bit of a drive, but it's great place to stay, and the kids really enjoyed it.

Sallee Reunion and 70th Anniversary

We just got back from the Sallee Reunion and the celebration of the 70th wedding anniversary of Rollie and Irene Sallee (my mom's parents).

You can find the pictures here. It might take a little time for the album to load. It contains (currently) 101 pictures.

Wedding anniversary

We're in Kentucky, staying the night at a Best Western. Tomorrow, we will be going to my maternal grandparents celebration of their 70th wedding anniversary. Hopefully, I will provide a link for the pictures in a day or so.
