Bound for Mom, Driving Lessons

Welcome to the third edition of Bound for Mom. In this round of posts, the topic is Driving Lessonsalong every mile with Mom there was usually a lesson or something to be learned – whether it was obvious to you then or now.  Collect her “Momisms,” her favorite sayings, her tips and tricks – all the neat stuff she gave you so you’d make your own journey safely.


Janet Iles of Janet the Researcher gives us Bound for Mom Milepost #3 – Driving Lessons.  Janet can just hear her mother as she performs certain tasks such as using a kitchen knife – and she remembers that “Mother is always right.”

Gini Webb presents Bound for Mom ~ Lessons For The Road posted at Ginisology. I love the saying “Come here so I can spank you” that Gini’s mother used! And it sounds that Gini had not only a smart Mom but a kind and compassionate one too!

Finally, I present Driven posted at Destination: Austin Family. I can look back now and laugh at some of my mother’s sayings but boy was I embarassed by them as a teenager!

About Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
