Dark Days of Winter

I had two cousins to die over the weekend. First cousin once removed Travis Cloyd died Saturday night. It was much unexpected. He was the son of my first-cousin Vicky Phillips Cloyd. Travis was thirty-seven years old and left a five year-old son.
While reading the obituaries this morning, I saw that a more distant cousin died Saturday, also. Geraldine Garst was kin on my Oliver side of the family. She was sixty-six years old.

DuckDuckGo! Yes, you read it correctly. It is a search engine which my son turned me on to and I am using it to replace Google search. Its best attaboy is that it keeps your searches private. Google allows companies to use your search results to place ads that want to sell you something. DuckDuckGo is an add-on for Firefox and other browsers. In Firefox, click on Tools, Add-ons, Search all add-ons, and type duckduckgo. From there, you should be able to add it to your search engine list. Fun-fun-fun.

Worshday again; have a good one.

  1. Sorry for your losses. I didn’t know Geraldine Garst was related to you.
    I worked with her at TI/Siemens. She was a great lady.

    • I didn’t know much about Geraldine; we played some together when we were kids and I didn’t know she worked at TI until Dot died. She had a good family.
      Thanks, Alice πŸ™‚

  2. I know how so hard was your Sunday. Yes, dark days of winter. I’m sorry for your losses, my friend.

    • Something one can never get used to, I suppose.
      Thanks, Jola. πŸ™‚

      • Beets Rule!

  3. Sorry for your losses Ken. I hope the son comes through this ok. Tough for someone so young.
