When I told someone I met at a holiday party that I was naming my new blog “Where’s Tarpley?” he asked, “Is that a place?” Actually, it is a place: Tarpley, Texas, and I have been there. Tarpley is also my name. On December 18, 2015, I retired at the age of 75. The way I figure it, if my health continues to hold up I have maybe 5 more years to travel during the Maryland winter months – December, January and February. Probably there will be a lot of South America in my future because I hate cold, hate dark, and hate ice and the southern hemisphere is in glorious summer these months. Where’s Tarpley will be a travel blog, but not just a travel blog. Where Tarpley is might be just inside her own head, for example, or at the movies, or shopping for real estate.
Consider this launch the “beta” version of the blog. Where’s Tarpley will have to become.
