What are your plans for the summer? Mine include spending more time on the Hattie Project, now that the school year is nearly finished (a decision prompted in part by a recent comment by my father that began, “If you ever finish the book on Hattie…”).

I can no longer think of Memorial Day without thinking of what happened to my great aunt on this holiday in 1933. Read about it in this series of posts, first published two years ago:

Part I: “A Nice, Bright Day”

Part II: “Cracklings”

Part III: “Down She Went” (a guest post on Christi Craig’s blog)
