The Inquisitive Party
A choice encounter with a very inquisitive party who contacted me nearly begging me to volunteer my time in searching for a long lost Great~grandfather~So & So , [ who I located ] , despite the language barrier .So without a shred of forthcoming information , I ask the relevant questions of who , what , when & where .... followed by I don't know , I don't know , I don't know & I don't know .
A few weeks later ,in presentation of Great~grandfather~So & So's particulars to confirm the correct identity, I was immediately informed that I needed to look for grandfather So & So as well
Still with over a month invested firm in my resolve to not give up I addressed the inquisitive party with photos of the area in question with possible kinsman included , hoping for a visual recognition ...
The inquisitive party responded in a very negative tone and I was reminded sharply that their attention and time were needed elsewhere
Now minus a volunteer ,
until such time as
monkeys fly outta my butt
...........the inquisitive party will remain as such
The reason I re-posted this is , I had reached that burning point of frustration when I jotted this down and posted it that was two years ago , the inquisitive party is still inquisitive as far as i know .
Come September this will be 4 years , no monkeys either .
