Story
Introduction
Born and raised in PA in the best of the times before the steel mills and Alcoa left the area; but lived most of my life in CA.  Married 46 years, 2013 to Jerry; always thought we would stay in CA but it changed not to our liking so we moved here to the hinterland of the Midwest. We do some snow birding in winter but enjoy 4 seasons.  We travel leisurely in our Excursion Motor Coach. Lost my only son in CA in 2008; worst experience of a lifetime.  Enough about me.  Aspiring writer, columnist, blogger, dabbler, somewhere on this new Google + that I attempt to master is a lot more about me...
