My Story

Carmen WisenbakerHere’s My Story:

My name is Carmen Wisenbaker and I am retired from publishing and marketing, but I still make use of my publishing expertise when I write my own stuff. If you’d like more information about Penworth Publishing and Marketing (from back in the day), click here.

I was born (many, many years ago) in Houston, Texas, but was raised in a small town just north of that called Porter. Growing up I always said when I got old enough I was going to leave my small town roots and head to the city. Well, I did just that and followed a very stuffy corporate path until deciding to head back to the country (and moved to Humble, Texas) some 18 years later. Now, I wouldn’t even consider living anywhere else but in a small town community.

So, why this site?
Since I’m retired, I wanted to create a space where I could share my thoughts with others (just for fun, of course). I want my shares to be about smiles and positive thoughts along with laughter, humor and have a small town feel. I believe the internet is way too full of negativity and if that’s what you’re looking for… you should go look someplace else.

One of My Favorite Sayings is…
RETIRED! And smiling all the time because I don’t have to pay attention to a word anybody is saying!
