I'm a woman-of-a-certain-age with a need to express random thoughts, ideas and educate those who are "not" of a certain age.
I'm originally from the far South Side of Chicago....or as some people like to say "sout" side of Chicago. My dad was a high school teacher and my mother, (as she liked to say), a homemaker. (I suppose that's better than saying "housewife".) I led a very sheltered life and was blissfully unaware of non-south side life. Did the school thing....VERY Catholic grade school, Bowen High School, Purdue University, and National Louis University earning diplomas and degrees that I am not using. (Sigh.) I now live in the northern suburbs of Chicago (hating the 9 months of cold that occur every year) with a lovely daughter who aspires to be a dj. My cat aspires to be nothing more than who she is....a cat.
I don't like braggarts, so will refrain for now.....
