    But thank god the bridesmaids were demure and pretty. If one remembered by only one adjective and one adverb, it should be those. Er. Right?

    I am the oldest daughter of the oldest daughter and so on, being the fifth generation of oldest daughter I have known the genealogy since birth, I know when who came to the US from England, which great-(times eight)-Uncle signed the declaration and who arrived on the Mayflower, and what became of every child. I think it’s nice to know where one fits in the chronology and where one has come from, to know that I am Hannah after my great-great-great-great-grandmother. My younger siblings don’t know the history, neither do my cousins, I think that must be a loss
