recently i have been able to more or less go through lots of the things unearthed in the past year. i guess that means emotional and physical things. i currently have in front of me the western union telegram my grandmother received when my father was wounded during wwII.

"...THE SECRETARY OF WAR DESIRES TO EXPRESS HIS DEEP REGRET THAT YOUR SON PFC JOHN VANDELINDER WAS SLIGHTLY WOUNDED IN ITALY FOURTEEN APR. 45 CONTINUE TO ADDRESS MAIL TO HIM AS FORMERLY OR UNTIL NEW ADDRESS IS RECEIVED FROM HIM=
UL 10 THE ADJUTANT GENERAL."

that, along with a multitude of documents and such were in a box. i am gonna set up another journal to deal with them, maybe even one by one, because they are so interesting.

i would like to scan most of the documents, when available, or not too delicate to do so. my annoying brother put one of the boxes with this stuff in the back of my pickup, where it sat for several months. some of the papers were damaged by rain or dampness. what a bastard.

so, anyhow, i have to come up with a name for that journal.
