About Me



Today, one of my fellow bloggers asked if I had an About Me page. I sifted through by blogs and didn’t find where I had a separate page dedicated to me, myself and me.

If I had one, it has vanished or maybe I never created one.  Cobwebs in the attic?

So, does that mean I have lost me?  Oh my, where oh where can I be?  I’ll look around and see if I can find myself.  This may take awhile so bear with me.

I asked our cat, Amanda, and she thought I was out on the back porch, sipping coffee.  My husband thought so, as well, and lo and behold, that’s where they found me!  Yep, the three of us can be pretty ditsy, know what I mean?Amanda

Well, now that I am here or there, or wherever, I can ponder this About Me page.

So, here we go!  Try to handle all of the excitement you are about to experience and enjoy the popcorn.

I retired 2 1/2 years ago, which I spent 40+ years in the corporate world.  I was in commercial insurance, in one form or another, for my entire career.  There were a couple of exceptions when I worked a few side jobs.  One of my side jobs was modeling, which I was involved in for approximately 10 years.  The other was my short-lived job as a cocktail waitress.  No, I did not dump drinks on anyone!  However, working 8-5 and then 7-2 made too much of a long day.My Pix

Now, that I am retired, we enjoy traveling, which you will find a few of my blogs related to places we have visited.  When we are not traveling, I spend quite a bit of time blogging and publishing on LinkedIn; and we both love to play computer games.  We also like to hang out in antique stores; spend time with friends at the local pub; and sit on the back porch while sipping coffee. Oh, I should mention I love coffee, which explains the appearance of my site. I relate just about everything to coffee. See, you can’t say that I didn’t warn you about the excitement. Would you like more popcorn?coffee111

We recently sold our house in Florida, which now we plan on traveling more frequently to Blue Ridge, Georgia – our favorite place to visit.  Blue Ridge is about an hour away and a very pleasant drive.  I wouldn’t mind having a cabin there, rather than stay in a hotel.  However, the hotel that we frequent is quite cozy and sufficient for the time being.



Okay, enough drivel and time to wrap this up.  By the way, thank you for joining my chat.

About me? I am still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up.  My favorite quote by Maya Angelou says it all.

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Maya Angelou

Cheers! 🍵 ☕️

    Hi Eugenia, and thank you so much for taking the time to visit and follow me and the storyhounds. 🙂 I’m with you on the coffee – what writer can live without it? It’s the one thing I refuse to give up.
    Loving the chocolate wallpaper!

    Cat’s are very knowledgeable, they appear to be minding their own business but they know exactly what’s going on 😉
    I love that quote too and try to live by it.
    Glad you’re getting time to travel – my husband when asked how he’s enjoying retirement usually quips that he’s so busy he doesn’t know how he ever had time to work! 😄

      That is a good sign that your husband is that busy. I feel the same way. I like to be busy and not sit around being idle and bored.

        My dad was made redundant at 59 and was lost without work. Within a year he died suddenly. My husband & I knew we needed to have a plan when he retired early and it’s worked well.

    That was a fun read, Eugenia. Blue Ridge in Georgia sounds and looks like my kinda heaven on earth. Is heaven that pretty, I wonder… Also, Amanda has personality by the looks of it. x

      I’m glad you enjoyed it. Blue Ridge is a great place – a quaint little mountain town in a beautiful setting. You’re right about Amanda – she has a very sweet personality most of the time – lol.

    I live close to you! We love Blue Ridge and enjoy visiting several times a year since it is an easy drive.


    • 08/02/2017 at 7:52 pm

      Wow, how cool. I follow a few bloggers that live in our area. It is an easy drive and we visit Blue Ridge several times a year too. We will be making a trip in the fall.

    Not ‘drivel’ at all. I’m so glad you found ‘you’! … It’s nice to have a little more information…. and by the way, I would never even consider being any kind of a waitress because I would spill most of what I served … I am amazed at how well some handle doing it…. Diane

      I don’t know why but I just saw your comment. Must be the computer gremlins are working overtime. 😉 I didn’t last too long as a waitress. It wasn’t my thing and I am surprised I didn’t drop or spill a tray of food or drinks.

    Love learning a little about you. by the way, some great photos. If my wife ever retires, we will be moving to the Ozarks. We love the Rockies here in Montana but Missouri is our birthplace.

    Searching for your About Me page adds a whole new meaning to “trying to find yourself.” lol I’ve done the same thing (created pages then forgot all about them.) Love the Maya quote. So true!


    • 08/03/2017 at 10:58 pm

      I’ve changed themes several times and discover pages and links I forgot about. Yes. Maya is my favorite for quotes. Thank you for commenting.

    Hello Eugenia, and thanks for the follow. Hope you dig around my blog and find things of interest to comment on. Would love to hear from you and exchange chatter.

    I’m glad you added an About Me page. I went looking for it. I’m even gladder that your cat and husband found you on the back porch with coffee. Sounds perfect.


    • 09/17/2017 at 3:58 pm

      Thank you for reading and commenting. I have lost the About Me page a few times. I change themes frequently, which sometimes it doesn’t work out too well. I’m surprised my blogs haven’t imploded into puddles of spilled ink.

    A most beautiful and profound quote by Maya Angelou. Your blog seems warm and inviting. 🙂
