I’m beginning to understand why projects like this stretch out for years. Life gets in the way. And meanwhile, sometimes it throws a brand new and exciting development at one’s feet!
While poking through the Little Professor Bookstore a couple of weeks ago, I came across a book on Wetumpka written and published by cousin Edgar Welden. While mostly about the football team during an era decades later than the diary, I realized that Edgar might be interested in publishing the book form of this project, as the focus of his publishing company appears to be local history in general. Note to self- set up coffee with the cuz to discuss.
I also found bits of information about Lynn’s father and his involvement in the local school system, plus a few other details to add to the story. Also been having random ideas while in the shower, etc. about locating visuals, etc. in Wetumpka. Ready to go spend some more time there very soon, notes in hand.
