Introduction Hey! Welcome! Howdy! It’s Shirley and I’m still here, blogging since the early internet era — August of 1998, hosted at that time by Geocities under the Domaine Name BlackandBlue, because the title clearly defined what my life was like during that period. A technical snafu around 2010 wiped out years of posts and ended with my rebooting and rebranding the blog as BootsandBraids because, as a Redneck living in a Black woman's body, with now 80 trips around the sun, having seen, experienced, overcome so much and so many, I’m a much more capable and evolved individual. I blog about my day-to-day experiences as an Octogenarian and the cast of characters living around me in a senior community.
