The therapist thinks that my esophagus is scarred from too much heartburn over the years. I really tried to eat today. Even tried to wash it down with milk. It took four swallows to get one small sip of milk down. I don't get hunger pains. When I had my gastro surgery many years ago, they cut the nerve that tells you when you are hungry.

Oh gosh Addie....if you could see my face - I feel so sorry for you. ♥

How do you manage to talk here about food related topics given your condition? Is it not painful to even discuss for you?

Not at all. I am 75 years old. The longest living member of my family so far. All my relatives died at a rather young age. So considering all that, I am very fortunate. This is just another ass ache that comes with old age.

Ass ache? That really doesn't sound like you, Addie LOL

For me, based on size alone, I would prefer a toothache!

It is an old family saying. The one part of the body that doesn't usually ache, is your backside. (Although Bostonians pronounce it "arse".) So when you have an ass ache, you know you are in bad shape.

I have become the Matriarch of the family. Not a title I came in to willingly. I am the last of my generation. Both my parents, two siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles, (both sides) husbands, everybody is now gone. The only ones left are me, and all three (of four) of my sister's children, and four (of five) of mine. Then there are her grandkids and mine. I have 17 all total. I don't know how many are left on her side.

I have become the family record keeper. There is a distant relative from my BIL who went to Ancestors.com and created a family tree. I must have spent a total of 20 hours of more giving her all the family names, birth dates, etc. She has been able to trace us back on my father's side to the late 1600's. It all came about because my sister's husband is related to her, so now there are several branches of the family on the tree.

My mother had polio and didn't get out much. I spent many evenings sitting at the kitchen table with her playing cards and she is the one who gave me most of the family history during those games. I am surprised I remembered it all. But it has been an interesting journey.

Have your father's side of the family been in America since the 1600s? Wow!.

One of my cousins and I did my maternal grandmother's family tree a few years ago. She chose them because they had an unusual surname - Durow. (Lots of them in the US but none of them are ours as they almost all came from Germany and we don't think ours did). We got back to the mid-17th century and then lost contact as we could find Joseph Durow's marriage entry in the church at Mugginton in Derbyshire but no record of his birth anywhere in the UK. We were in contact with a lot of Derbyshire Durows who all turned out to be related to us but none of them who had done their family tree could get back past Joseph.

There seem to be two main enclaves of Durows in England - ours in Derbyshire and the other in and around Portsmouth, a big port on the south coast so who knows.

One of my grandmother's brothers, Thomas, took off to Canada, Arriving in Quebec on the Melitta in 1921 but we can find no reference to him thereafter. He probably arrived too late for the 1921 census or avoided it as he isn't on it and that's the last one available. So we may never know what he did.

Was your Thomas Durow born in 1890?

Could this be him?
