I imagine this blog will be a place where I can share some of my projects (including the high’s and low’s) and join the discussion happening on the internet about lifestyles in North America. Currently (September 2018) I have so many projects I want to accomplish that I have been doing a lot of online research via YouTube and Pinterest and I am grateful to learn from everyone. Blogs and How-To videos have helped me learn everything from knitting to window installation! Maybe my upcoming 46th birthday has me thinking differently about my voice and my “seniority” as a community member, so it is time to throw my hat into the ring!
The concept of the pirate pieman developed about ten years ago when my daughter had a cat follow her home from school. He is a classic tuxedo with great mousing skills and very little common sense. I often develop a song for each of the pets and somehow the cat was named Simon (formally Sailor Simon Pirate Pieman) after the children’s poem “Simple Simon.” Simon continues to aggravate and entertain and the image of a pirate pieman has always amused me; a little bit tough and a little bit sweet- like a lot of things.
Wish me luck!
