|Mary Ann's Travels|
Let me tell you about myself. I was born in Washington DC as Mary Angela Bartecchi. I was given the nickname, Mary Ann, by my parents, Dan and Arlene. My father was in the airforce. That was the beginning of my travels. My mother and I joined my father in Germany, where my sister, Patricia and brother, Danny, were born. We moved to England and lived there for a short time before moving to Oklahoma. My youngest sister, Chris, was born there. We moved to Maryland after two years in Oklahoma. Maryland was my home until I was 30.
I grew up in Glen Burnie. Attended Point Pleasant Elementary, Marley Jr High and graduated in the bicentenial year at Glen Burnie High in 1976. I then attended Essex Community College, majoring in Engineering.
I would travel to West Virginia with my friends, while in college. I was a camera toting tourister then. That is where I met my future husband, Rick McFarlan in 1980 and I married him in 1988. I moved to the Potomac Highlands of West Virginia to be with him.
I have two daughters, Samantha, 15, and Amanda (Mandy), 11. I also have a pied cockatiel named Crackers and a quaker parrot named Petey.
Some of family moved to Delaware after I graduated. I go there quite often to visit.
I love traveling, photography and art. My favorite "thing" is to grab my kids, the camera and jump in the car to go somewhere. I am dedicating my pages to travel.
I have worked in a Time/Share resort, Land of Canaan Home Owners Association, in Canaan Valley, WV, as an Activities Assistant. I have sent brocures to people, given directions and when the Activities director was absent, I would drive a van full of people for trips around the Potomac Highland Area. I would also teach crafts to the homeowners and RCI. I enjoyed working with people from all over.
