Hi!

Hi,

I never know what to say in these intro messages so I'll just say Howdy!

I love to cook, experiment and come up with my own recipes, gardening and canning and generally chat. :D

As for me personallly, I'm an old fart, married and my kids are grown and gone so I really don't know what to do with myself anymore.

Raven

By the way, I just looked at your profile and you're NOT an old fart!!! (Since I'm only 6yrs younger I can't bear the thought!!!)

Hi

From Anna in Ohio.
I too like to cook and experiment. I spent 20+ years in food service and had enough of that. I couldn't be creative so now I just spend my time cooking for my husband.

Hi Raven,

Welcome to the boards!

I love it here! Everyone is so helpful and kind.

I really like your avatar, it reminds me of one of my favourite Edgar Allen Poe poems.

LMAO - that pretty much clears it up - nope, we're not the same at all!!! Maybe some of the others areas i.e., old fart, etc., we might be similar on)

I have some friends who named their little girl Raven - jet black hair with the most beautiful honey/green-colored eyes - if I ever get a chance to get her picture I will. She's breathtaking!
