The short story:  Wife, Mom, singer, actor, gardener, now retired legal assistant, used to be fluent in Spanish, Flemish and French (with a smattering of German thrown in), lover of cats, recent convert to dog love via Boo the mini aussiedoodle, totally in love with extended family which just keeps growing.

The longer story:  My name is Lynna and I welcome you to my online diary.  I am a tiny-town girl turned loose on the wide, wide world. The oldest of four girls, my footprints marched from Hemet, CA to Onkerzele, Belgium to Riverside, CA to Boston, MA to Bangor, ME to Portland, ME to Providence, RI to St. Petersburg, FL back to Boston and finally, to Midcoast Maine, where my feet are firmly planted. I am married to the man of my dreams since 1975.  I am Mom to Katy (Executive Producer of Growing Bolder TV and Radio, married to Lucas and “mom” to two gorgeous gray cats and two goofy, loveable mutts) and to Andy (web designer and developer soon to be married to Liza and “dad” to Aziza the Cat and Jack the Dog).  Our current menagerie includes Sophie the Siamesey Snowshoe muttcat, Phoebe the dilute calico behemoth cat and Boo, the always happy, constantly chewing, curly-haired ball of energy mini aussiedoodle.  I parlayed my B.A. in theater into a gig as a radio newswoman, an administrative assistant, a legal assistant a.  By day, I worked for money; by night, I worked for love in community theater, as an actor, director, stagehand and President of the Board of Directors.  I am still growing, still learning, taking some time to explore and taste what life has to offer me and mine.

    Hi Lynna. Trying to check out a bunch of Fitbloggin’ blogs blogs before this weekend. (It helps to ease my nerves…I think.) That is SO COOL that you are involved in your local theatre group. I used to do that but got so busy with my family that I don’t have time. SOmday I hope to return as it’s my true passion! Well nice to meet you. Maybe we’ll meet this weekend among the throngs of bloggers. 🙂
