Tika Is Watching

Tika is ever watchful for many things. Elephants, mostly. She keeps our yard barked-clear of elephants. Especially the big pink ones. But she also barks away anything that moves..... the UPS man, the airlines flying overhead in their landing pattern, the wild turkeys that occasionally wander into our yard. She is a good watchdog from her protected perch on a snowy driveway safely tethered on a leash.

Are we as watchful in our day-to-day lives? It's so easy to get caught up in the humdrum-of-the-days and lose site of The Big Picture and really Get Anything Done. Bet you know whereof I speak.

One thing I watch for is to watch-to-attend-and-so-to-learn. Our local society is having a wonderful spring seminar tomorrow (  and the end of April is a FamilySearch Symposium ( . Both of these events will be great opportunities for learning something new or some new technique for doing genealogy. I watch for these events!

Tika is a great little teacher...... she teaches by example.

  1. Hi Donna,
    Very Clever. Really enjoy reading your blog.
    I was just finishing up last minuet 'thoughts' for a community class on beginning genealogy tomorrow. The director of the Community Education Courses even puts me in my daughter's classroom at South Ridge High School which is fun. Your way of writing makes me smile. Renee
