"My Life Journal" ....Diana Lewis

     After placing a bid for this book on eBay I wasn't really sure for one if I would get it and two what exactly I would find. Once I received the alert that I won the bid I couldn't wait to get it and see what information I would find. I will have to admit not everything that I purchased off eBay held a lot of easy access information some I have to really read.  A couple of times I’ve even pulled out a magnifying glass to closely examine writhing and photographs.


     Okay now to the journal I wasn't really sure how to introduce it and in what style or format, so I’m going with my gut on this one. I will introduce four pages a day, with photos of the pages, letters, cards, photographs and newspaper clippings and more. What’s wonderful about posting like this I will also be able to share a life and name those that she and her family were close too. I hope that maybe, just maybe someone will recognize this family our others that will be making an appearance.
