Mom says "goodbye"

Thought: between 1968 & 1972 I was a hippie in L.A.. I hung out on sunset blvd. in Hollywood. Tourist would drive by & take pictures of us. Could I be in one of your mother or grandmothers photo albums? Just a thought.

I believe this is my last day posting for Phelan.

You know, I have been many things in my life. I have been a criminal & an upright citizen. A drug addict & clean. A Hippie, a biker. An atheist, a pastor. Married, divorced. A prisoner, a free person. The life of the party, a loner. A farmer, a city dweller. A counselor, a reporter. A deathly ill person, a healed person.

I have been many things. But, the thing that is most important to me, is that I am Phelan's mother. Out of my four children she is my favorite daughter.

I have had fun writing for her. I will miss you all. I have enjoyed your comments & wish you all the best.

You have been an awesome guest blogger... Stop by and say "hey" once in a while... :)

I always wanted to be a hippie... How cool is that...:)The only thing cooler than L.A.would have been San Francisco, Haight Ashbury and all that... ;)

Thanks for filling in. We really like your daughter and think she's awesome. I am sure the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Hey Anita,
I did live in San Francisco for about 6 moths in 1971. It was awesome.

Hey Mom, you've held the post in good stead. Welcome back, Phelan.

Thanks for filling in Mom. It's been great reading your stories. I hope you drop in again sometime.

No No my computer has been down and now you are leaving just as I catch up on your post. As far as guest bloggers go...well I think that Phelan is as multi faceted and unique as one person can be. It is obvious that she is a product of her upbringing. I hope that when my offspring grow up the reflection is just as glowing.

Maggie,

Thank you for the comment. It was very kind.

Hey Mom how about your own blog?

Heck, we may be in EACH OTHERS photo albums! I was a hippie in Goleta, CA., then moved to San Fran in '74. Never spent much time in L.A. though.
Enjoyed your posts! Looking forward to hearing from Phelan again! Take care!

I agree with the others-please post again sometime!

Your biography is almost a perfect match with mine except instead of being a hippie in California I hitch hiked around the country after the war. I get confused easy. Do you have your own blog?
