To those who helped me learn and grow as I built this site.
are each of us, Angels with one wing and we can only fly by embracing
It's on your love, that helps me fly.
It's on your strength, that keeps me high.
It's on your trust, that sends me farther.
It's on your faith, that I can soar forever.
you for being My Angels.
About me? I was born in Paragould Ark. 12-23- l947, but have been in the St. Louis area since the age of 5. After a 15 year stay in Lake Ozark, Mo., I make my home now in St. Charles, Mo. Enjoy some area photos in the Home Grown Photos section. Having divorced in 2004 ending a 30 year marriage and after a failed business attempt and long struggle, I work now for a large retail club here in St. Charles part time. A potpourri I am, but I hold dearest in my heart my Indian heritage. I have a tribute page to the Cherokee Nation "Tsalagi" within my site as well.
have discovered in the last few years that I can write a bit of poetry.
I never wrote a poem in my life before I got my first computer in 2002.
I had written a few, what I call "letters" just my thoughts
to people or situations. I don't claim to be a poetess or writer, even
now, just a wanna be and am humbled by those who have had a lifetime of
being able to create and share with the world their imagination put into
pretty words. And with my late start I can only hope that I can continue
to write a few more now and then. I always sign my poems, "An Angel
Original." I had signed my first one like that in fun after having
been lovingly dubbed "Angel" by someone special so I just continued
in fun to do that and will continue to do so. I wanted a place to post
them and share them thus the name "Simply Angel"
became the name of my site when I put it up in 2003.
included some of my work in My Poetry Pages. Some were inspired by events
in my life. Some by events in other's lives. And some for no reason at
all, but all with my own reflections, simply written, simply stated. I
will not post all I have written as some are too personal and were meant
to be seen by only those for whom they were written and that was audience
enough for me.
As you go through this little site you will see my passion for Bears. I have over a hundred. They don't eat much they're stuffed already! Most are Boyd's Bears plush, my favorites. They live with me here in my computer room and keep me company as I work on my computer.
You will meet my ornery cat T.C. that's short for Trailer Cat. Mommy's Baby. Only cat I ever knew whose favorite food is watermelon. You will see pictures of my precious Grandson Nathan, in his own little grow site "Nathan". He is 4 as of this update.
I love music but mostly Country oldies music. Visit my midi/wav pages and my Music/Lyrics pages. They are filled with some awesome oldies. Beautiful graphics as well. Nothing is to be hotlinked to from my site! They are free for correct downloading with the exception of the embedded files on the Music/Lyrics pages. All hotlinkers will be caught and their sites listed in the Hall Of Shame Page.
spent many hours searching and collecting the backgrounds and graphics
for these pages, another thing I love to do. I am a graphics nut, especially
the animated ones . Every thing I used came from free linkware sites around
the net and are linked as requested if applicable. No graphics are to
be taken or linked to directly from my site, but from the websites offering
them. As of this updated About Me page some are in fact no longer in business,
so they are not to be used again at all.
