I was born an Arkansan; a motherless teen who kept house for my father, went to school and worked at the downtown theater while becoming a High School Graduate. I became a Bookkeeper, a Newlywed, a Mississippian, then I was Girl Friday to Godfrey & Bassett, Struggling Young Architects, until I became a Mother with three babes in three years and another 5 years later for dessert.
We moved to Alabama in 1961, where I was the best Den Mother this side of the Mississippi. I was active in the PTA on the local and County levels and the PTSA at Banks High School. I led fundraisers like Spaghetti Suppers and selling light bulbs.
After 17 years of being a stay at home wife and mother, I became a Production Scheduler for a pipe and fittings foundry, a legal assistant (slave) to a wonderful woman lawyer, and finally a Girl Friday again.
Our hobbies included football fandom (remember the Birmingham Vulcans, and the B’ham Americans?), and membership in the Society for Creative Anachronism.
I was active in Science Fiction Fandom for almost 30 years, attending and helping run regional conventions and Worldcons.
This blog will touch on many things, past and present. Enjoy!
