At work today I was organizing in the Biographies section. I got from Uhl to Whelan, which funny enough includes my Grandpa’s book, Living in the Way. I remember when he “wrote” that thing. He had pages of horribly boring notes that my aunt was supposed to type up for him (I being the ten year old who’d been to mini-university got to teach her about her computer; it was the first one ever in my house). Eventually it got typed up and passed along to a ghost writer who made it slightly less boring. My grandma has a chapter in it, which everyone agrees is the best.
I know it doesn’t mean anything, but it’s nice to see my surname on a book in a real library. Yes, I’m dissing Mennonite archives there. Wanna fight? Didn’t think so.
