A Little Background

Hello dear world

Good evening and how is everyone ? I am doing fine today. Some of you mentioned that you didn't know I was from California so I wanted to fill you in on a little background about myself so here it goes :

I was born during the Bicentennial year of "1976" in Inglewood California. My family lived in Los Angeles, California at the time I was born. At the time Gerald Ford was President and Stevie Wonder was the top entertainer and of course Faded Levi's and Platformed Shoes were the fashion. My mother and father's side of the family are from New Orleans, Louisiana.

I do have four great grandfathers who are named Gaston Rochon, George Doyle, Arthur Hutchinson and Alca Antoine. I also have four great grandmothers who are named Laura Rochon, Wilma Mercier Doyle, Adeline Hutchinson and Alice Antoine. I also had two grandmothers who were named Goldie Doyle and Cornelia Antoine both of whom are deceased as are my two grandfathers Joseph Doyle and Lawrence Antoine.

A while back my uncle whose name is Tony was given a job at Delta in Atlanta, Georgia so my family decided to move to Atlanta and so my family and I have lived here ever since.

I do hope that helps you to learn a little bit more about me. I thought I would share that information with you since some of you didn't know I was from California.

By the way our neighbors in the back of us are having their trees cut down in their backyard so it sounds like we are living right in the middle of Home depot when the people on those machines come rolling down the aisles with the alarm on warning you that they are coming down the aisle. They have been working nonstop so I now know what its like living in Home Depot. I thought you might want to know that.

You might also want to know that I am off of work today for it is a national holiday celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr.

That'sall for now. I'll talk to you again later my dear world.

That was really interesting Monae.  I have been to California but never been to Atlanta. I have been to New Mexico. New York, New England...just as I wrote that I realised they all began with NEW  isn't that funny !! also been to Florida I liked all the places but maybe California the most, we stayed at Yesomite National Park in a little cabin in the woods the deer came right up to the door...Love for now  Sybil xxx
