A podcast about whatever is on my mind. I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, occasional gardener, all around eclectic woman, and you never know what's going to be on my mind. :-) I live in rural Central Virginia, hence the title.
I had a girls weekend with my granddaughters and their cousin, and I discuss our plans to game in person for the first time since the pandemic started. I'm not calling my podcast quarantine cast anymore, hopefully I won't have to start again.
Our adventure begins! The music used in our episodes can be found at https://freemusicarchive.org/music/Wellington_Sea_Shanty_Society/Pirate_Pop/Pirate_Pop_-_05_-_Wellington_Sea_Shanty_Society_-_Great_Open_Sea.
Inspired by an episode of Random Screed, I've been thinking a lot about love. Sure, there are a couple of tangents, but hopefully they're not too distracting. Thank you to TJ Drennon's for my wonderful edgy Wednesday themed song, please support him on patreon at https://www.patreon.com/TJD.
