R.L. MURRAY

A LIFE OF CHANGE

         MID-WEST GIRL, BORN IN MY GRANDMOTHR'S HOTEL, TEACHER, PROFESSTIONAL MODEL, PLAYBOY BUNNY AND WRITER, ALL IN ONE LIFE TIME.

     Life in the 40's was was still some what like the movie "The Music Man".  People traveled by train, salesmen travel their territory by train and goods traveled by train.

     Life was gracious and simple.  People didn't lock their doors, gave a meal to a stranger, if they stopped by a person house and said they were hungrey.  Could they work for a meal.  My Grandmother gave out many a meal to a passing stranger.

 

     I feel blessed that I was born when I was.  The Murray Hotel was in Eldorado, Illinois, a small coal town in the heartland of America.  It was quiet and neighborly.  The streets were brick and Main Street was busy.  There was every kind of Merchant that a person could need.  And there were three movie theaters. 

 

     When I was born the Hotel was full of traveling sales men (about twenty rooms full) all of them had to come see me.   

     And even though we moved away when I was two, we returned every month to visit my Grandmother and every Holiday for the most part until her death, when I was about sixteen. 

      I grew up in the St. Louis area and have moved around, by choise, a lot---Chicago,IL,  Ft.Louderdale,FL, Jackson, Ms, Arizonia and loved every minute of it.  I would move again if I had the calling. 

      I now live in Southern Illinois in a lovely cottage of the name of Rose Arbor Cottage.  I live with a Chow Chow named Sienna---Sienna has three cats, that I take care of, named, Minkie, Amber and Kassie.  We also have about ten Barn cats that call Rose Arbor Cottage home.  I  

     I write full time, that is, when I am not herding, feeding or caring for animals.  I do so hope that you like my Website and will join.  Both "PEACEABLE KINGDOM" and MISSISSIPPI DREAM" will be out in 2012.  Please enjoy all of the pictures and the special page for "MISSISSIPPI DREAM" .

      I also have, my children's picture story book Website, that I would love for you to visit under the name of,  rosaliemurray.com  I have four children's books coming out very soon and lots more pictures for you.
