This post is a bit about your humble writer. Since I’m trying to have this blog sound like we’re just two people chatting over the fence, you should get to know me a bit better! I’m an old-fashioned gal. I like to bake from scratch, listen to old-time radio, (my favorite is Jack Benny!), I always have an open door, hot food and a sympathetic ear for anyone who needs a friend. I’ll admit, when younger, I always admired the Mother of the Bride’s dress rather than the actual bride and now that my girls are entering a marriageable age, I pin matronly, yet glittering dresses that I will lovingly shop for someday! In general, I think I was born an old woman!
I’ve never been afraid to get older. Of course, no one likes the aches and pains that come with age, but somehow, I just always connect better to older ideas. Maybe because I was raised by my auntie after my mother died, maybe because I was never a pretty young woman, but for whatever reason, in my head, I always see myself as the mothers from the old movies, like Andy Hardy and Public Enemy.
I do wear an apron in my kitchen, vintage ones I pick up when I can find them. I am a bit plump. However, I have hair the color of ripe plums and I swear like a sailor, so I guess there, the resemblance stops!
I hope you will come over. The coffee pot is always on and the timer just went off, so the cobbler is hot.
Let me feed you.
