This is something of an EXPERIMENT. I feel like Bilbo at the end of the Return of the King--quite ready for a new adventure. Having just had another birthday (not one of the big ones with the 0 on the end or one marking another quarter century but substantial nonetheless) and having lost a job when my employer went out of business at almost the same time, I need something new. I will see where this will lead me.
I read omnivorously though not systematically. I do needlework of various kinds. And I grouse about politics and current events. I take my political independence a step farther than Will Rogers who, as a Democrat, was not a member of an organized political party. I am not committed to any party, however well (or poorly) organized.
