Hello! My name is Mari (aka: Mother Mari)< I feel like I operate a Bed and Breakfast open 24 hours 365 days of the years. Services provided:caterer,chauffeur,laundryservice,moneylender, seamstress,psychologist,tutor, nurse, etc…..etc. (Gifts and other recognition greatly appreciated.)
We call home, a small town in the Land of Lincoln. I’ve been married 31 years to my best friend, aka: MacGyver
We have one son, aka: Billy Bob, who turned 30 in June!
We (the boys are) Cub fans. We enjoy (the boys do) any sport. We (the boys) enjoy hunting and fishing when time permits. We (all) enjoy family and friends, a swim in the pool, hamburgers on the gas grill and one or two cocktails. We (all) try to do the best we can, help other when we can, have family meeting at the table, laugh, cry, scream and *****()))^^%^ on occasion.
Our intentions are good! But, as life would have it, something unexpected seems to always take precedence or alter any plans.
We are currently out numbered by 5 cats, Buba, Miss Kitty, Effie Mae, Cookie Joe and Princess Dusty along with 3 dogs, Annie Green Springs, Casey Jones and Sophia. Which, I might add, are the most pets we have ever had, at one time, in all of our 31 years of matrimony and MacGyver often (daily) reminds me that this is why we are not remodeling.In truth this is not the ONLY reason. Last year MacGyver received his AARP card and I’m not far behind. I’m praying that any remodeling will come soon…. as we are reaching……middle age. Every day is a gift….it’s with GREAT THANKS TO GOD…. that I can report my husband (MacGyver) is a colon cancer survivor. Cancer changed our outlook on many things and age is contributing to the speed of which we now do things! As I (we) start a new chapter in our life my wish is that in someway I can share a little part of everyday life here in the country. I’m not the best writer but, I hope you enjoy! Remember if you are every on Main Street, USA, stop by. Your always welcome, at the bed and breakfest!
