Over the Years…

Over the years, I have written poetry, essays, short stories (which are unpublished and were mostly true, but I would embellish to make them fiction), and educational materials including workbooks and instructor manuals. And for three years, I had a full-time job at an insurance company where I edited and revised insurance and annuity products so they would comply with readability requirements and other state rules and regulations in the states where we were licensed to sell.

Some of the materials (like the insurance and annuity products) I wrote were not mine to keep when I left employment of the companies where I wrote the materials. Some, though, were and still are my own work.

I am posting some of my own writings here. I actually wish I had saved more of my writings that I have not saved … But, oh well !

Kelly Family Cookbook, 1987

I put together a cookbook of these Kelly
Family recipes
for a Kelly Family Reunion that my parents, Walter and Katie Kelly, hosted on Thanksgiving Day in 1987.

This book is presented here exactly as it was printed in 1987, except for this title page.

My mother was well-known for her scrumptious, delicious, yummy cooking! And my dad was well-known for telling her
how to cook!
