  • Welcome to my MTM world

    Once upon a time, I wanted to be Mary Tyler Moore. Not the real MTM, but rather, I wanted to be Mary Richards, the character she played on her television show in the 1970s.

    Actually, all that is true of my life now, with the exception of the apartment. I own a villa and share it with a quirky-yet-lovable husband.
