I Want to Be a Docent When I Grow Up

"I wear your grandma's clothes" when I'm a docent.
 Here is a recent article I wrote for The Tide of Moriches about a historic house museum in Center Moriches. This summer Havens House will be establishing regular tour hours. Stop by and I just might be your tour guide because guess what? I'm a docent. That means I get to play a role in that big old house! Next thing you know I just may be nominated for best actress in a historical-non-fiction-not-televised drama.  So don't call me Loren when you see me at Havens House. I only answer to Sarah Margaret Havens there and the year is 1913. The opening weekend saw a good turnout with antique cars on the lawn on Friday. Find the John Scudder Havens Homestead on Facebook at Museum Shop at Havens Homestead.

Dear Internet Traveler,

Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.
