Shortly after I woke up this morning I was barked at. And whoever’s dog it was, they didn’t call it but allowed it to bark at me for about 15 minutes.

And then, just before I left maintenance showed up and told me they didn’t want to see me there anymore.

I responded that that was what everybody said. And by the time I was 100 yards away I was so mad I screamed “Rot In Hell!”

And screamed it at a nice lady jogging past who said good morning.

I woke up about 7 and after that it took me till eleven or twelve to feel like doing anything.

That’s when I went to the library and decided to go through Who’s Who to see what I could find. And what I found was exciting. James Fulton Hoge, Junior is a 6 time pulitzer prize winning publisher. His brother Warren has been with the New York Times for years and is currently their foreign correspondent at the U.N.

The Family of Hoge, on which my genealogy is based, was edited and published by their father, James Fulton Hoge, son of Beverly Lacy Hoge, brother of James Hoge Tyler – governor of Virginia and compiler.

Not many people have a genealogy published by the father of a pulitzer prize winning newspaper publisher (six times over) and the editor, and bureau chief of one of the most respected and influential newspapers in the world, The New York Times.

I spent most of the day working on their entries. It will probably be at least a few weeks before I publish another revision. But wasn’t it just yesterday I said this was going to be astonishing? And then I astonished myself.
