Welcome to Linda’s Place!

I am 69 years old, a born-again, Spirit-filled Christian, one of five siblings (only three of us currently remain), married (to my “second-and-forever” husband David) for 35 years, mother of six (one = his; four = mine; one = ours; all = adults with their own children), grandmother of 19, great-grandmother of four; and aunt to a number of humans, dogs and assorted other animals.

David and I live on a small (8.5-acre) hobby farm in NE South Dakota, U.S., with our youngest daughter Judi, her husband Harry Jr., and their seven children (Ethan, Harry III, Isaiah, Michael, Elizabeth, Wesley, and Abigail…ranging from 14 down to just under two). There are also about 150 chickens, six geese, four guineas (poultry, not little furry animals) and 11 cats presently living here. Oh…and in January 2020, Judi and Harry’s 8th child (another boy) will arrive.

The header image for this site randomly changes from time to time (it will change every time you go to another page). The images will always be photographs taken here at the farm (or nearby), copyrighted by one of us living here at the farm.

I have been called a “Renaissance Woman” a number of times, and have a large variety of hobbies, interests, and skills. On this site, I (and some guest authors–family and friends–from time to time) will be sharing some of those with you, in one form or another.

I own a “sister website,” Neighborly SimsCraft, which I have been running through several metamorphoses since 1994. You’ll find out a little about that site (and a direct link to it) on the Neighborly SimsCraft page (see the Top Menu).

Additionally, I’m a YouTuber. My channel is Grandma’s Gone Gaming. You’ll find out a little about that endeavor (and a direct link to my channel) on the Grandma’s Gone Gaming page (see the Top Menu).

As a guest here, you’ll be able to read all public Pages, Posts, and Comments. If you want to comment on an existing article, you’ll need to register. Please check out the “Registration, User Roles, and Website Policy” page (it can also be found as a sub-menu to the Home menu above), to find out how to do that, and how to proceed from there. Thank you.

As a creator, I like to support other creators that I highly admire–some who make wonderful music, and one who makes my gaming time more fun–all who make great videos for YouTube, and who also keep their content very “family-friendly.” If you hover over the word Home on the Top Menu, you’ll find my page that will tell you about the six artistic groups that I support in my very small way. I would like to encourage you all to check out Patreon to help people like this, as well–not necessarily the same ones I do, though that would be great, but the ones you admire yourselves. At some point in time, both Judi and I may start Patreon accounts (or a joint one). We’ll let you know if/when we do. 😉

New Posts


If you make a new Post, this is where it will show up. Once it is here, it will be changed to a Page, and moved to the correct Top Menu hierarchy.

Alternately, you can Change the Post Type (bottom of the top right panel in the New Post form) to Page, and then (probably the following day) I’ll edit the Top Menu so that it will be found by others.

The best way, probably, is just to go ahead and make the Post, since it will show up here and be seen, even before I get to it to change it and update the Top Menu. 🙂

In order to keep this area “clean,” I’m not setting it up to have Comments, so if you have any questions or problems, please just use the General Comments Page. Thanks!

Whistles for D. Lynn

D…here are a couple of whistles for you. 😉 “Goodnight Irene”(one of my dad’s very favorite songs, when I was growing up…I used to think it was “Goodnight I Ring”)… “Amazing Grace”… I don’t have a good mic for doing music…just my headset mic with which I record my gaming videos. It has no way …

Owl Handmade With Love

I watch a music Reactor named Sam (Bruddah Sam), on YouTube. His wife Jenn makes very lovely crocheted items for sale. Here’s a link to her site: @OwlHandmadeWithLove I hope you’ll check out her page, and maybe buy something from her.
