It's My Birthday!


September 14, 1957  3:22 pm Martha Lynn was born in Amarillo, Texas.

I was such a surprise to my dad, 'cause he wanted and expected a boy. Ha! I fooled him!  His first words were, "Put it back, it's not done cooking yet!"  That's okay, because later he told me the first time I crawled up in his lap and kissed him on the cheek, he didn't care if I was an alien, a boy or a girl, he was so in love with me!  hehe!  We girls do have a way of wrapping our daddies around our little fingers!  Huh?
Why do I go by my middle name?  Well, because I was named after my father's mother, Martha Mary. She came over to see me when I came home from the hospital. They were calling me Martha and Martha Lynn. Grandma asked my mother to call me Lynn so there wouldn't be confusion between the two of us. Mom, naturally, said "Okay."  (Lynn was my mom's mother's maiden name.) I've been called Lynn ever since...except when I was in trouble, of course! 
So, today I want to give rather than receive!  You, my friends, fans, and followers will have several opportunities through out the day to win e-books published by AltWitPress, (click on image to learn more from
