dog laughingSo here’s my riddle:  1. What is everybody in the world doing at the same time?  2.  What has two heads, six feet, one tail, and four ears?  (Answers are at the bottom of the page).

This is my oldest son Tony doing a speech at the Hilton Chicago Downtown back in 1982 when he was ten. He was in Glenwood Military School for boy!  I was so proud of him, and still am.img363
During that time, I was just a Single Mom Working trying to pay tuition and supporting three other kids because I got no help from any where much less want any.  I am a very proud person & plus I was going to school because I knew I couldn’t do this the rest of my life.  It was really hard strenuous work.  It was a place called, “The Old Barn”. Believe it or not it was fine dining!  1989/90.  I was studying to go back to work in the office, and decided on a law firm.  Believe it or not this was such a fun time in my life.  Many girls there were single Moms or just Moms with a lot of kids working for extra money.  We were all very good friends and help one another out with many things, and we also partied together at least once a week!  GOOD TIMES, but HARD work!

This week’s theme is This Land is your Land!  Let’s share our homelands with one another!

1. What country are you from / do you currently live in?  I am from the good ol’ U.S.A. and I was born & raised in Chicago, Illinois and I still live in Illinois.
2. How much of that country have you visited?  Oh my, until I met my husband I had visited Wisconsin, San Francisco, CA and Belen, New Mexico, and some where in North Carolina, but I was too little to remember that, and oh yes, I did go to Memphis, Tennessee & Litchfield, Kentucky once too, but since I met Dave I’ve been to Indiana Beach on Lake Shaffer & Merrilleville, Indiana, Sandusky, Ohio, St. Louis, Missouri, Orlando, Florida, and Williamsburg, Virginia.
3. Which part of the country would you love to visit next?  Orlando, Florida

    Wow, can’t believe you supported 3 kids by yourself AND went back to school! That is amazing!


      Actually there was four children, and yes I was a waitress while the kids were little & then I went to work for a law firm and built up my career after that. It was a long road, but worth it.


    You’ve had an interesting life! I am Spanish and I have never been in the United States.


    Very interesting post with lovely pictures Marie! As usual I got the riddles wrong!:) I am hopeless at them. You have been to quite a few states. I hope you get to go to Orlando, Florida soon. Take care and enjoy the rest of your weekend.


    Ohh, it’s nice that you grew up in Chicago. I bet there was so much to do when you were growing up! I grew up in Sandusky…we had at least one thing to do all summer long. 😉


      HEY GIRLFRIEND, guess where we’re going on vacation! Yep, Cedar Point cuz hubby wants to ride the new ride “GATE KEEPER”! We should meet up! 🙂 That would be fun! HUGS AND HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
