Post 3626 - A Working Vacation

Late on Thursday night.

I got up early, around 6:30, during my brief vacation, so I could drive to the Nova Scotia Archives and research an unsolved murder. I got there at 8, even though they don't open until 8:30, and I am glad I did, because I took the last of the three free parking spaces. I was told by the woman ahead of me that the lobby opens at 8, and those spaces are highly coveted. I got lucky.

I remained there from 8:30 until nearly 2pm. A couple pee breaks, and a ten minute Kind Bar and water break, but otherwise I was hard at it. I found quite a bit of material for this case, including the person's obituary, which has a wealth of information. I was just now trying to find this person's relatives in Facebook, but did not have much luck. I will try again in the morning.

I got back home around 2:30. Patricia and I watched the final two episodes of "Longmire" on Netflix. My goodness, that was an entertaining program. As some of the cast said, the final season was like a 10 hour movie. I do hope that they bring back the character in some form, and not too long from now. I am curious to try out the Longmire novels by Craig Johnson. I have never seen one anywhere, so I may have a hard time finding them.

I have had a long day. Researching unsolved murders can take a lot out of a person.

See you tomorrow.
