Look up Deedy in Websters Dictionary and you will see the following definition - \Deed"y\, a. Industrious; active. [R.] --Cowper. But to me Deedy is simply my last name and not a very common one at that. My Father always said "find yourself in a strange city? Open a phone book, find a Deedy and give them a call - chances are they are a relative." So, for all the Deedy's out there hello and welcome.

Searching for other Deedy blogs

While searching for other Deedy blogs I ran across this one by Katie Deedy in New York. Since the Deedy clan is spread around quite a bit now I, at first, was not sure if I could identify this particular Deedy. But after seeing this little snippet I finally figured out who this one must be...

The only reason I was born is because my mom and dad both worked at Davidson's (aka: Macy's) in the late 70's. Mom worked at the make-up counter, and dad worked in accounting, Every day he would visit her at lunch and ask her out, and every day she would say no. Finally, one afternoon after my dad had gotten his wisdom teeth taken out, he stopped by my mom's counter and asked her again. She felt so bad for him and his swollen face, she said yes. And so: ultimately we have my dad's teeth to thank. Right? Kinda. Unless you go further back to my family in Cuba. Had the First Baptist Church of Decatur not taken my mother, aunt and grandparents in in 1963, then my mother would never have lived in GA, but most likely Miami. If my grandfather hadn't worked in the black market and Cuban Underground against Fidel, my family wouldn't have needed to leave so quickly. If Fidel had never risen to power, my family would have probably never left Cuba.

Katie must be one of Sean and Carmen's daughters (Sean is my cousin - son of my uncle Justin). Always good to know you can find a Deedy on the information superhighway.
