Genealogy:The McLean's Vs The McGregor's and The McRae's
Posted by: Richard Grosvenor Hadlow on Feb 11 2012 00:26

The McLean's Vs The McGregor's and The McRae's

A brilliant piece of work by one of our members!!!

The Donald McGregor (m) Mary McRae was a first cousin of Donald McGregor who married Catherine McLeod. Quite a confusing tree.

1st Donald McGregor who (m) a Mary McRae, had 2 sons, Donald and John.
2nd their son Donald married Christina McRae. Their son the 3rd Donald McGregor married (you guessed it, a Mary McRae (I had her death date wrong it was 1948) These are the parents of Daniel Colin McGregor (1891-1991)

John McGregor (2nd Donald's brother) had a son Donald and he was the one that married Catherine McLeod.

It took me awhile to get my head around that lot.

Important:The Cab Ride
Posted by: Richard Grosvenor Hadlow on Dec 6 2010 06:36
I arrived at the address and honked the horn.
After waiting a few minutes
I walked to the door and knocked... 'Just a minute', answered a frail, elderly voice. I could hear something being dragged across the floor.

After a long pause, the door opened. A small woman in her 90's stood before me. She was wearing a print dress and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned
On it, like somebody out of a 1940's Movie.

By her side was a small nylon suitcase.
The apartment looked as if no one had lived in it for years.
All the furniture was covered with sheets.

There were no clocks on the walls, no knickknacks or utensils
On the counters. In the corner was a cardboard box filled with photos and
Glassware...

'Would you carry my bag out to the car?' she said.
I took the suitcase to the cab, then returned to assist the woman.

She took my arm and we walked slowly toward the curb.

She kept thanking me for my kindness. 'It's nothing', I told her...
'I just try to treat my passengers the way I would want my mother
Treated.

'Oh, you're such a good boy, she said..
When we got in the cab, she gave me an address and then asked,
'Could you drive through downtown?'

'It's not the shortest way,' I answered quickly..

'Oh, I don't mind,' she said. 'I'm in no hurry. I'm on my way to a
Hospice....

I looked in the rear-view mirror. Her eyes were glistening. 'I don't have
Any family left,' she continued in a soft voice..
'The doctor says I don't have very long.'
I quietly reached over and shut off the meter.

'What route would you like me to take?' I asked.

For the next two hours, we drove through the city. She showed me
The building where she had once worked as an Elevator Operator.

We drove through the neighborhood where she and her husband had lived
When they were newlyweds
She had me pull up in front of a furniture warehouse that had once
Been a ballroom where she had gone dancing as a girl.

Sometimes she'd ask me to slow In front of a particular building or corner and
Would sit staring into the darkness, saying nothing..

As the first hint of sun was creasing the horizon, she suddenly said,
'I'm tired.. Let's go now'.

We drove in silence to the address she had given me. It was
A low building, like a small convalescent home,
With a driveway that passed under a portico.

Two orderlies came out to the cab as soon as we pulled up. They were
Solicitous and intent, watching her every move.
They must have been expecting her.

I opened the trunk and took the small suitcase to the door.
The woman was already seated in a wheelchair.

'How much do I owe you?'
She asked, reaching into her purse.

'Nothing,' I said

'You have to make a living,' she answered.

'There are other passengers,' I responded.

Almost without thinking, I bent and gave her a hug.
She held onto me tightly.

'You gave an old woman a little moment of joy,' she said.
'Thank you.'

I squeezed her hand, and then walked into the dim morning light..
Behind me, a door shut.. It was the sound
Of the closing of a life..

I didn't pick up any more passengers that shift. I drove
Aimlessly lost in thought. For the rest of that day, I could hardly talk.
What if that woman had gotten an angry driver, or one who was impatient
To end his shift?
What if I had refused to take the run, or had honked once, then driven away?

On a quick review, I don't think that I have done anything
More important in my life.

We're conditioned to think that our lives revolve around great moments.

But great moments often catch us unaware-beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.

PEOPLE MAY NOT REMEMBER EXACTLY WHAT YOU DID, OR WHAT YOU SAID ~BUT~THEY WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HOW YOU MADE THEM FEEL.

You won't get any big surprise
But,
you might help make the world a little kinder aAnd more compassionate by sending this on and reminding us that often it is the random acts of
kindness that most benefit all of us.

Thank you, my friend... I love you all!
