So what I did learn this week. In my playing, I have been investigating my husbands family. His father, Joel was born in 1930 and the rumor is that Joel's father abandoned them and that Joel spent some time in an orphanage. I haven't been able to verify that yet, but I have discovered that his dad, Dock, married three times and had 5 children among the three wives. By the time that Joel, my husband's father was 9, he had two younger sisters and Dad was long gone. So now I need to find out about the orphanage.
Final note on learning: I have learned that not everything can be learned in a classroom. There may be some things that are better experienced with a little play.
Next step: I need a tutor.
