I was born youngest of 8 in 1961. I graduated from Binghamton University in 1986 with a degree in Humanities. I've been married for 17 wonderful years to my husband, Greg (And he's nothing like Joan's Greg, thank God!) and we have two boys, 10 & 13. I love to read, write, sew, make movies on my computer, and I'm an avid shutter-bug. I dressed as Joan last year for Halloween, and I work for my local school district as a substitute teacher's aide. I love Mad Men and would love to have a walk-on!

Hey Kids,

After a 18 months and 94 Fan Art Thursday posts,  I just wanted to let you know that this will be my final post in this category.  I’m sorry I have to leave this post, but I’ve had a very rough 2013. (My darling Mom passed on last May, still much to be done).  In happier news, I also got a wonderful job at a local Jo-Ann fabrics, and of course I’m busy raising my family.  Some of you know that I also write a Star Trek blog, which I am also leveling off of as I heal and regroup.  But rest assured, although I’m retiring from this post, I’ll still be here to comment and post articles about the upcoming season of Mad Men, and Downton Abbey, and I’ll still post my occasional Retro Reel Review movie columns.

For now, I just want to say thanks for all your support and comments, and I’ve made some lovely friends here (Madchick, Anne B).  I’m delighted to still be a contributor to this wonderful blog.  Deborah and Roberta, thank you for letting me be part of it.  Indeed, Deb, without you, I never would have started my Trek blog; you taught me everything I know about blogging!   I look forward to seeing you both at our next Mad Men Finale Party! Thanks again, Sweet Lipp Sisters, it’s been my pleasure, I’ll see you in the comments!

Love and Blessings to all of you,  Ciao for now,  Therese
