Way to go Mary Fields!
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! ...
Well ... i just had to share that seems like ...
Sister Queenie ... thank you for giving her to me years ago! I Miss You!
