I grew up in the beautiful Endless Mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania, in a small town where everyone knew everyone else. I followed my father and older brother into the Navy, as did my younger brother. My service was done willingly and I worked hard to be a good sailor. I enjoyed the travel, most of the people, and I certainly learned a lot. I married my wonderful husband and we moved to his home state of Texas in 1995. We have lived here happily ever since.
We are members of All Saints Anglican Church in San Antonio. We love our church family and the traditions of the ancient worship there.
My online moniker is mcfitz, a portmanteau word of my married name, McClintock, and my maiden name, Fitzgerald. I have used this online for over twenty years. Sometimes I add satx (for San Antonio, Texas) if I need a little extra.
