Just another WordPress.com site


I came across WordPress quite by accident one day, and thought it would be fun to publish my photos and some thoughts on a blog. (I only vaguely knew what a blog was at that point!)  I only expected my family and a few friends to look at it, but now I am told I have over 300 followers!  I am amazed.

I was born in England, but have lived in the U.S. since 1963.  I was married for 49 years, but recently lost my husband to cancer.

I live on a small hobby farm with two ancient horses, Sunny and Twiggy, two barn cats, Otis and Boo, Sherlock, the house cat, and a precious shelter dog named Abbie.

I love that the blog allows me to be in touch with people from all over the world, and I love being able to share my thoughts and photos to anyone who cares to check in.  Thanks for stopping by.
