About FKelso
Joined June 2018
Hi, all! I am glad to be joining your community. I am 80 years old and have lived in Alaska since 1969. I love it here...would not live anywhere else. I've had a varied, active, and interesting life (at least to me...lol.) I lived in Connecticut until I was 9; then moved to Colorado, where I spent 20+ years. Started playing music professionally in Colorado (first played banjo; then added electric bass; arthritis has caused me to give up the banjo, but I still play bass.) Our group got a job playing music in Alaska, first in Fairbanks, then in Kodiak. I met and married a man in Kodiak; much later we separated. We had plans to build a house on land we had under Homesite Claim on Spruce Island. After our separation I went there and with the help of a friend, built the house where I lived for the next 20 years. I am a writer; have had four books published and will have the fifth within a couple of weeks. I am retired, except for a very part-time jewelry and gift business, and need to supplement my meager Social Security.

Those are some lofty goals to start. Nothing wrong with that as long as you know it will take time to get there. Set yourself a schedule to prioritize your goals. Let me know how I can help.

Great to see that you've added some goals Fran!

Working towards achieving these goals will happen as you take action on the lesson tasks here at WA. Ask questions when you have them, and take your time. This is not a race, and your time investment will have you up and running before you know it!

You're going to do just great!

Great to have you in the community and I hope the best for you. Do you get a chance to whale watch way up there in Alaska, that has always been a dream of mine.
Although I have not been there as of yet, I hope to travel there one day.
Be safe and all the best to you and yours.

Oh, yes, have had many whale experiences. Now I don't live right on the water, though it isn't far away. Instead of whales, my visitors are bear and moose. They own the place -- I am just a tenant.

That is very cool. I am not sure that I could stand to live in such extreme temperatures.

Hi Fran, thanks for the follow and am following you back. I used to live on the Kenai for a while then spent a year, in Anchorage, then it was back to Florida. Strange, eh? ;) but you know what it's like moving around! Now I'm in England.

anyway great to see you are in the top 50 not sure how I missed following you before but glad I am now, I look forward to learning from you. Marc

And I can learn from you, too, Marc. The top 50 is a new thing. I waffle back and forth -- in and out -- eventually I suppose it will solidify. Good to find you,too, and thanks for following me back. Nice to meet someone who is a bit familiar with Alaska. I have lived here now for 50 years.

Hi good morning, l just wanted to thank you for your reply. l did everything you said but l got stuck, when l clicked text on the amazon page and to took it to my page only a code popped out. not a picture? can you tell me what l did wrong. Thank you so much for your time to stop and help out a newbie. That speaks volumes as to the kind of person you are. Cheers!

Yes. Remove that code. Go back to Amazon and make a copy of the image code...just that one. Now go to your page, go to the top,where it says "visual" and "text." Click on the text side. Now paste your code. Then click on the "visual" side and you should see your image. Then you have to choose whether to place it left, right, or center.

Let me know if that helps. To do the text image, you have to start over. Once you have the first one in, message me again.

I will try to catch your message right away. For some reason, I am not getting email notices in my email, so have to click the bell to look for your message.

Hello FKelso, So lovely to connect with you. I have just written my autobiography which I hope to publish next week on Amazon. I am looking for people who would like to read my book for free and then send me a short review. Would you be interested in doing that?

Thanks for asking...it depends on how soon you would want the review. I am up to my ears in work, as will be gone the month of February. I am trying to write posts ahead so I can keep up while I am gone.

Welcome to WA. It’s participation and persistence to get there and also takes a lot of creative thought to process...
Yes, thank you for following. And I am hungry to get started.
I am finding so much information for goals to success. This is surely a great opportunity with just what I need to develop independence and dreams.
Yes, www is a big world brought together with WA...
I’m just following my heart... if you’re into books, this will work out. Giving it time to sink in.

Truly grateful
