Grammy & Boppa

Grammy has just entered the world of blogging! It's going to be mostly for genealogy, but it might keep our family and friends up to date on our happenings, too.

[Me at 6 months!]

Life is good, retirement is good, and it's definitely enjoyable to be able to indulge my genealogy and scrapbooking hobbies. I'm currently working on my own family history albums, from my dad's side (Dempster -Burrill) to my mother's side (Parks-Phelps).

I'm currently web sergeant for Bill's Marine Corps League detachment and two clubs at SunRiver St. George. I'm enjoying the HTML learning curve.

Bill has had a full two years as founding Commandant of the Utah-Dixie Marine Corps League Detachment. It's been a wild ride but very satisfying. From only a few months after formation, his detachment has been the largest in the State of Utah. His term will be over June 09 when we hope to relax and "get back to business." He's also been involved in a coalition of veteran groups in Utah, so no grass has grown under his feet since we've "retired." Well, maybe not grass - desert rocks??
