I was thinking, what would I name my Peruvian Devil Gerbil?

Ok, so I do a lot of genealogy. This week I met a 5th cousin who is 92 years old. Awesome guy. And get this, he has a hook for a hand. I told Mrs. Shoe, “He may be my cousin, but from now on he’s ‘Grandpa Hook.’”

Have you discovered any "Wrong Way Bundy"s in your research? :)

I did find one ancestor who hung himself in a closet and another who fell out of a moving taxicab in Chicago. My grandma said the cab company called it a suicide, but that sounds quite ridiculous to me.
Oh oh and just this week I found out I have first cousin in law many times removed in Plymouth, Mass, who was accused of being a witch.

Yeah, I could think of much better ways to commit suicide than fall out of a cab...

5... It's one of the most memorable episodes! I'm so much like Al, in the way that it's better to risk your life instead of paying a few dollars to get things right by a professional.

I've had many of those moments! I've also had the opposite, where I called a professional to do something I could have done myself in 5 minutes if I had just bothered to do some research!
