About me

Location Oregon, United States
Introduction 30-something gal who grew up in N California raising Percherons, and was a parkie for 4 seasons during college. After several years of being stuck in town, my lumberjack man (LJ for short) and I finally escaped to the country. No more listening to car horns and squealing tires! While I attempt to use proper grammar and punctuation, I tend to write like I talk. Lots of sentence fragments, run-on sentences. Bear with me as I try to keep a record of activity/progress on our property and with our critters (which at any time might include dogs, cat, ducks, geese, chickens, meat chickens, pigs, goats, turkeys, guineas, bees, etc)
Interests Gardening, filling my bookshelves, spending time with my man and our dogs (Henry and Cammi), antiquing, working outside, and generally staying busy.
Favorite Movies Nearly anything with Gene Kelly or Fred Astaire, Rogers and Hammerstein, It Happened One Night, Abbot and Costello in Jack and the Beanstalk, Camelot, The Wizard of OZ, Meet Me in St Louis, Mary Poppins, Bottle Shock, Robin Hood (Costner may be awful, but Alan Rickman is fabulous), Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, Dracula (Keanu is a wimp supreme, but Gary Oldman is a god), Mamma Mia, 300, Spartacus, The Edge, ...
Favorite Music I mow the lawn to ABBA Gold!
Favorite Books How 'bout favorite authors? Jean Auel, Willa Cather, Terry Brooks, James Oliver Curwood, Philippa Gregory, James Herriot, Conn Iggulden, Jack London, Larry McMurtry, Anne Rice, Albert Payson Terhune, Ernest Thompson Seton, Tolkien... The list goes on and on.

You've successfully slain the dragon! How will you toast your marshmallows?

I like my marshmallows twice toasted. Burn 'em, eat the charred outside, and light them up again. Mmmm. I'm gonna need another dragon.
