Bring Fall on early as I have had my fill of heat and humidity this summer.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep

But I have promises to keep.

And miles to go before I sleep.

I am the mother of a 40-year-old daughter, who is also my best friend. I also have 1 stepson ~ 55 ...sadly the other stepson passed away just after his 52 birthday, May 2, 2016. There are also 4 grandsons and 1 granddaughter. The eldest 'son' lives in England with his wife and 3 of the 4 grandsons.

I was born into a newspaper publishing family, so guess where I worked most of my life...you guessed it, the newspaper. The Taunton Daily Gazette was owned by my dad's family from 1848 until 1973. I worked there in various capacities (part-time and full-time ~ from the circulation department to being the Administrative Asst. to a few publishers) from 1956 until my retirement in 2004, when I chose to stay home to take care of my mother, because of her health.

I'm basically a very easy-going person; slow to anger, but when I do get angry WATCH OUT! I'm also a very good listener, but will not give advice unless asked. I would also like to think that I have a good sense of humor :-)

In my high school years, I sang bass in a female barbershop quartet and was also a member of a square dance exhibition group. Also took piano lessons for 10 years.

In the mid-70s I re-met with a high school 'crush' and proceeded to pack up my things, quit my job and move to England to be with him. We were married there and would have remained except that his father was in failing health so we came back to the 'states' along with the youngest of his 2 sons. Sadly, after 20 years of marriage, Chuck passed from lung cancer in 1996. I treasure our time together and miss him still. Soulmates...that was us. :-)

Both sons were given the option of staying in England with their mother, who had also remarried, or coming with us.

Ok,that's all for now, but more to be added at another time...maybe...

Being alive; honesty; my family; violets; lilacs; lilies of the valley, scented candles (especially balsam and pine); friendly people, NOTH, Facebook (not necessarily in this order).

TV~ Father Brown, COlumbo, Cold Case, Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, Hallmark Movies and Mysteris channel

Negativity; heavy metal and rap (is it REALLY music?); liver; lamb, heat combined with humidity, lima beans

The following link is to a page that will tell you more than you probably wish to know about the city in which I live.

My computer, knitting, crocheting, counted cross stitch, my grandchildren, reading,did I say, my computer, crossword puzzles, sudoku, jigsaw puzzles (not necessarily in that order)

Dropping by to say hello. Found your late from the Welcome Wagon link..looks like many there on that list are not active here. I have been a member here since mid 2008. Wishing you a wonderful week ahead -:)

Thank you so much for the lovely &
fun comments. They mean so much to me. Even though you don't get a
timely response, I am so enjoying & appreciating the uplift to my
spirit, that I really need in these scary U.S. times we are living in
right now. So sorry to be so late getting back to everyone. I have
been so busy, I can only get here about 1-2 times a month right now.
The weather here in NH has been abnormally cold & rainy dreary,
for 2 months+. I finally have the (new experimental) veggie garden
put away for Winter, tell more about that, later.

I am so sorry I have to run there is so
much to do to get the yard ready for winter weather (weather which is
a long sustained, below freezing, 32*F) which will be here in a few
days, along with freezing rain & several inches of sustained
snow. I have so much to do, in such a short amount of time, I'll have
to take care of the stuff that will freeze to the ground first,
before it freezes to the ground for the rest of the winter. Talk
longer later

Thank you again, for hanging in with
me, I really enjoy the comments... have a great holiday season, how
ever you enjoy it. I'll be back before Christmas, Hugs T P
