About Me

I’m not sure anyone really likes writing their own “About Me” page but I know I like reading other people’s About Me pages.  It gives the reader a chance to get to know a blogger.

This blog, Big Bertha’s Adventures Blog represents a variety of my interests:  creative writing, photography, HO-scale miniatures, motivational writing and whatever else I can fit into this blog.  I’m also very much a fan of using my small platform to proclaim my love for special places, like The Adolphus Hotel in Dallas, historic buildings and buildings/businesses that have gone by the wayside.

I’ve always enjoyed looking at old photos and snapshots at antique stores.  I like to think I’m adding to the dialogue with my own photos– but with CONTEXT.  I think it’s important to provide context for the photos I post– even if it’s just a location, or an explanation of the feeling/emotion when I took the shot.  It gives meaning to the photo.  My gratitude to the subscribers who came in because of my nature photography – thank you for sticking with me even though I have deviated from the initial theme.

Frivolous interests include:  consuming the greatest beverage known to humanity:  The Java Chip Frappuccino.  I also like polka dot dresses, I collect chairs (what?), hats, creepy ventriloquist’s dolls and hotel ephemera… to name a few.  I am a proud Gym Rat at my local gym and I have an unusual fascination for spiders (what?).  More normal activities include scrapbooking but even that takes a strange turn at times.

The time I was a “bellhop” at The Baker Hotel in Dallas. (The Baker Hotel was demolished in 1980… but one can pretend by standing at The Adolphus Hotel instead!)


Feel free to follow me on the blog, my Instagram or professionally on LinkedIn.

My ventriloquist’s dolls also have their own Instagram – feel free to support them as well.  Seems everyone is joining the social media bandwagon.  😉
