"Mid parted clouds, all silver-edged, A gleam of fiery gold, A dash of crimson-varied hues, The Sunset Story's told. A mirrored lake 'tween mossy banks, A lofty mountain ridge, A cottage nestling in the vale Seen from a ruined bridge. A woman longing to discern Beyond the gleam of gold A rush of memory, a sigh, And Life's strange tale is told." ~~from "Fancies" by Olivia Ward Bush
~*~ It is quite amazing that so many people on the Internet care about what Neddy thinks. She has written a number of Web Logs (blogs) floating somewhere out there in the blogosphere, and they are all her personal opinionated palaver. Neddy believes in individual rights and responsibilities, small government, free trade, a strong national defense, moral absolutes, family values, and the sanctity of all human life.
~*~ Neddy describes herself as a child of God, a Christian, a wife, mother and grandmother, a descendant of 31 patriots of the American Revolution, and three of the "First Families of Virginia." She was born in 1941, to a Virginian and a Londoner. For twenty-seven years of her adult life, she was a Cold War Warrior. Along with her husband and three sons, she traveled with the United States Navy throughout America and the world, fighting Communists and Communism along the way.
~*~ Neddy now fights only cats and aphids at her home in Fairfax County, in northern Virginia. She counts seven grandchildren amongst her ten descendants.
~*~ WHO AM I? ~*~
Edna Barney describes herself as "nobody." Be she what she is, others have described her as a writer, historian, genealogist, "point & shoot" photographer, gardener, "Senior Citizen" web designer, know-it-all, and even some other unmentionables. "Neddy," as she is known on the Internet, lives in northern Virginia with her husband, Captain Cliff, and her feline companions, Katy Blue =^..^= and Cudleigh =^..^=.
Edna Barney is Kerfuffles. Or is it that Kerfuffles is Edna Barney? Only Kerfuffles knows for sure.
