The plan for March: dive energetically into the pursuit of my fourth great-grandfather, Charles McClellan, discovering all I can about his life's trajectory, and gleaning clues—where solid facts are camouflaged—from his encounters with his F.A.N. Club, first in Florida, then backwards in time to Georgia and then, maybe, the Carolinas.
The detour: stopping to receive a routine Covid booster shot on my way home from meetings on Monday. Silly me; I thought it would be no worse than the other two times I had done that. Besides, I needed to do that; I'm flying east to meet up with family in a few weeks. It would be foolhardy to take a trip like that without maximum protection.
Clue: think again. Perhaps it was because I actually came down with the disease in January that my immune system roared into action. Long story short: we'll have to put that exploration of Charles McClellan on hold until I can manage to sit up longer than it took to write those three paragraphs.
I'll be back soon. I promise. In the meantime, no matter what happens, I'm glad I can watch RootsTech online, whether seated, standing, or crashed out on the sofa. Being virtual has its virtues.
