It looks like UrbanPosters.com shipped my order today, almost exactly three months after I ordered it. I still have not received feedback regarding the lateness or the multiple e-mails, or the BBB complaint, and I suppose I don’t expect to now, as they will feel they fulfilled their end of the bargain.

Of the three Christmas cards I’ve received so far this year, two are from distant cousins Chris Stofel and Helen Lowry. Helen sent me [...]
In the movie Forrest Gump, Forrest sits next to his mother at her death bed. They have a conversation that is, on the surface, about Forrest’s destiny. Underneath, however, it is a conversation about what Forrest is going to do without his beloved mother. “I happen to believe you make your own destiny. You have [...]
About a month ago, my Aunt Carolyn sent me some interesting photos. I have previously posted a photo of my great-grandfather, Herman Cunningham, taken while he was serving in WWI. He is posing with John Roy McCravey of Floydada, Texas in the photo. I don’t know how the two knew each other, and I surmised [...]
