  •  It was a sunny day at lunch hour and steady traffic buzzed around Target in Elizabethtown. Hustling out the door, thinking of the next errand, keys in hand, I stopped short on the sidewalk.

    A woman was lying flat on her back in the parking lot, her feet inches from the storefront sidewalk, her motorized scooter straddling the curb.

    A child with her seemed to wonder what to do. Some older women had stopped and asked her if she needed an ambulance. She didn’t. More people came to help, but appeared not to know exactly how.

  • I had seen that the 1940 census was going to be released.

    After more than 70 years, that year’s official count of United States residents would become public record, opening up a treasure trove of records for genealogy buffs.

    With my 80-year-old uncle driving my 83-year-old mother back from her annual winter stay in Florida, perusing the records together when they arrived would make for a great night of story-telling about their teen years in New York.
