About Me

I’ve been told by my daughter and a few others that I really should have an About Me page on my site. I honestly never thought I needed one, I mean – there is nothing all that interesting about me!! – but I will bow to pressure and put one up. Although It will be very brief!

Some Background: I lived in a very rural part of Pennsylvania until I was 17 when my family moved to the San Francisco Bay Area. Talk about culture shock. Here I was – the almost equivalent of a farm girl, highly sheltered and severely protected, thrown into a crowded, metropolitan lifestyle with nary a hill, tree or babbling brook in sight. Now there were things I liked about California – to visit – but to live there was a nightmare. I was stuck there for 12 years until my husband was transferred to Illinois and I could move back to a rural setting.

My pirate name is:
Mad Ethel Cash

Every pirate is a little bit crazy. You, though, are more than just a little bit. You’re musical, and you’ve got a certain style if not flair. You’ll do just fine. Arr!
