Hello Cousins and Fellow lists members,
I think we're turning a molehill into a mountain here over something silly.
Cousin AT, please understand that us citified folks (I'd go further and include us
folks from the north) do have a hard time reading some of the posts, simply because of a
language (and dare I say cultural) difference. Your last email contained references from
which I have never heard, and am trying to decipher. This can be very frustrating for us
sometimes. I have no doubt that you are well meaning and can provide a lot of knowledge,
and I'm very thankful in particular to you and Bucky for all the information and
suggestions you have both provided for my Lawrence CAMPBELL line. I just hope that you can
be as patient with us. You definitely didn't deserve any of the harsh criticisms that
were lobbed your way (and although I'm a relative youngster from the north, my parents
always raised me to "Respect my elders"). Generally, I find people from the
south most kind and cordial...as you have been. And I thank you.
Everyone else might be wise to consider what this is...a message board...where messages
and communication are shared. It really is a social site for it's members to share
information, and not just that which pertains only to our direct families. Ideally, each
one of us can help the other in some way to overcome our brick walls. I believe that is
what cousin AT is attempting to do. Are we so busy trying to track down ghosts that we
ignore the living? Cousin AT and Cousin Bucky have so much to share, a real living history
and culture, it would be a shame if we let these living testaments to our families, our
stories, our country pass with a dismissive comment.
Do unto others...
