About Me

Me, age 2

My name is Earline Hines Bradt and I was born at the end of the baby boom in Essex County, Ontario, Canada and have lived here all my life. I am the second oldest of seven and the oldest of four girls. I attended Essex District Secondary School and St. Clair College.

I have two sons by my first marriage and I have been married, for the second time , since 2001. I have five grandchildren, the youngest comes to spend a couple of mornings a week with me when he doesn’t have school.

I am interested in my family history and blogging but have  a diversity of other interests such as gardening, sewing, baking, antiques, collecting, fishing, camping, painting and decorating, playing darts and cards and I’m learning to shoot pool.

My husband and I go camping at Emily Provincial Park every summer at the start of bass season, I’ve enjoyed fishing all of my life and my husband has grown to love it as well.

I have a cat, Cloie, who is going to be 12 this summer, and two dogs, Cinnamon, a 5 yr. old Pointer/Golden Retriever mix and Angus,  a 3 year old  Black/Yellow Lab mix. I also have a reef aquarium with a Convict Blennie  and a couple of Hermit crabs.

My husband and I are new members of the Bicentennial Branch of the United Empire Loyalits Association of Canada – UELAC and are both descended from Loyalist families from New York who served in Butler’s Rangers and settled in the Niagara region.

I am on Twitter and Facebook and my personal website is My Favourites Place.
