About Me

week-in-a-day106
The Woodlake Tiger is not my husband, Vince, by the way.

Welcome to my blog. Thanks for visiting.

 Hi, my name is Marsha Ingrao. 

My husband, Vince, our dog, Kalev, AKA Puppy Girls, and cat, Moji, and his sister have lived in Prescott, Arizona since 2020. We love it here.

Family

My friends are my family because my family is so tiny.

I have a younger brother in Portland, OR. Like me, Randy and his wife have no children. Our parents, both only children, and their parents and grandparents have passed.

Marriage suits me. I’ve had two husbands, both for over twenty years. Mark Alvord passed away at age 47 from a rare genetic disease.ย  His tiny family is all gone now. Then I married Vince and inherited another small, but not tiny family. Our generation lives on as does the next.

Jobs and Career

I reached my career goals late like Leo the Late Bloomer. I tried lots of other jobs before I finally started teaching.

  • babysitter
  • paper girl
  • dietary worker at Portland Adventist Hospital.
  • dental assistant
  • shipping & receiving clerk – dental supply house
  • real estate sales
  • door to door magazine sales
  • teacher’s aide
  • k-teacher private school
  • proofreader and a paste-up person at a printing company
  • secretary
  • office manager
  • teacher
  • administrator/ consultant

It takes forever to get your education when you wait! I finally reached the goal. I loved teaching. I loved kids and I loved teachers. I loved the process.

Retirement

George Washington set the example. He stepped aside after he served as President for two terms. Good thinking! I retired before anyone had a chance to say out loud to me that I was too old for my job.

Joy and Justin to my left filled my shoes and carry on the work of promoting history-social studies education K-12.

Never regret your decisions! The history-social studies program flourished far beyond my vision for it. My friend, Joy took my job, then moved on and up the ladder. Now Justin, a new teacher when I started, a dear friend, serves in my old position as the Tulare County History Consultant. They advanced education further than I could have imagined.

Beyond Retirement

Woodlake Rose GArden
Kiwanis maintains the Woodlake Rose Garden
  • blog
  • served history-social studies teachers through California and San Joaquin Valley Councils for the Social Studies
  • travel
  • gardened in CA
  • served the Woodlake, CA community through Kiwanis and the Chamber of Commerce, and Foothill Bible Church
  • wrote a photo history book of Woodlake – Images of America Woodlake.
  • moved to Prescott
  • still blog, still attend church

Major Hurdles

  • stage 1 breast cancer in 2019
  • torn meniscus, deep vein thrombosis & pulmonary embolisms & pneumonia in 2021-2022

Yet, I live on to serve. How can I help you?

Testimonials

I had several testimonials, probably spam. Does a hobby blogger need testimonials? I don’t think so.

Joel was one of the brightest spots in my day. He fell out of his chair laughing when I read a funny chapter in Sideways Stories from Wayside School.

Now it’s your turn.

Introduce yourself and share your About Page link with me.

    What an interesting “About Me,” Marsha. I enjoyed finding out more about your interesting and varied life.

      Yes, I’ve had various varied lives during my life. I think interesting may be pushing it somewhat. Plodding, planned, maintained, but definitely not edgy like jumping out of airplanes exciting, or climbing mountains, or even sailing around the world in a boat. Basically I’m a good, solid coward. ๐Ÿ™‚

        No.. you took a lot of risks and didn’t settle..Did varied things that interested you and did them well. Anyone who goes back to college in their mid-thirties is not a coward.

      Thank you so much, Jo, I know exactly what you mean. When I post an interview, I get much better acquainted because I spend time on someone’s blog. It’s a lovely time. I also spend more time reading comments. Yes, it takes time, but I have more of that now, and in spite of leaving my friends, I’m never lonely because I have virtual friends world-wide. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll look forward to publishing your interview – no rush. I’m not on a schedule since I ask people to participate as I go along. ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great day, Jo. ๐Ÿ™‚

            I enjoyed your finale. That was a good way to close it out without deleting it. My sense of happiness with blogging has returned since I discovered a purpose in hobby blogging. It has an important place in people’s life. I think your “The Puzzle’s Last Piece” made that clear. “I enjoy research. I enjoy writing. I enjoy interacting with visitors. To me, those are very important factors of blogging. I try to practice what I believe. If someone takes the time to comment, I feel obligated to be welcoming and reply with something meaningful. Then again, thatโ€™s time consuming โ€“ let alone reciprocating and visiting my favorite blogs.” I hope that you will continue to reciprocate here, Frank. I just started a new challenge, which I think will fit you well on Wednesdays. Either way, whether you participate with us or not, I’ve enjoyed our chatting together. Thanks for stopping by. ๐Ÿ™‚

So hey – if you have an idea where I can help, let me know.

            It’s part of who you are. When I was going to destroy my Always Write self-hosted blog, my friend Sally suggested that I download it to my old blog and save the content. It’s been a messy process, but I had years of work poured into the site. You may rework some of your 2,000+ articles. It’s enough to keep you busy for the rest of your life if you run out of things to do! ๐Ÿ™‚
