    Way to go Mary Fields!:welldone:
    Sisters was bringing the heat for some time now, huh?

    So, Yu Lum Duck got his raise? Hahahaha! I Know that butt was sooooore.lol It's mind boggling reading that an Oriental tried to step to our Sister Mary.

    Thank you for posting about Mary. It was a refreshing look at the Legacy 0f Black women of the 19th century.

    (Say it again Sister! Who are you?)

    I am Mary Fields
    People call me "Black Mary."
    People call me "Stagecoach Mary."
    I live in Cascade, Tennessee.
    I am six feet tall.
    I weigh over two hundred pounds.
    A woman of the 19th Century,
    I do bold and exciting things.
    I wear pants.
    I smoke a big black cigar.
    I drink whiskey.
    I carry a pistol.
    I love adventure.
    I travel the country,
    driving a stagecoach,
    delivering the mail to distant towns.
    Strong, I fight through rainstorms.
    Tough, I fight through snowstorms.
    I risk hurricanes and tornadoes.
    I am independent.
    No body tells me what to do.
    No body tells me where to go.
    When I'm not delivering mail,
    I like to build buildings.
    I like to smoke and drink in bars with the men.
    I like to be rough.
    I like to be rowdy.
    I also like to be loving.
    I like to be caring.
    I like to baby sit.
    I like to plant flowers and tend my garden.
    I like to give away corsages and bouquets.
    I like being me, Mary Fields

    Peace and Blessings Family,

    I am feeling our Beloved Ancestor's Spirit, Mary Fields, all up in my being right now! So much so, that I want to get her picture, and put it in my avatar, like I've done many times in the past when I felt her. But for some reason, I'm reluctant to do it this time, like it aint what I'm spose to do this time. But I feel it so strong, I gotta speak on it, so I'm doing that instead.

    It feels so good! I gotta share it! I feel ready for whatever! ... :love:

    Well ... i just had to share that seems like ... :D
