About me

Gender Male
Location Northeast Tennessee, United States
Introduction M. Fearghail is my pen name. My full name is Marion William Ferrell. I was born (in 1960), of predominate Irish heritage, and raised in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, in northeast Tennessee. The godly influence of my mother and the independent, stubborn disposition of my father raised me. I'm an educated country boy, with international experience. Formal education includes: A.S. in management, B.S. in religious ministry, and course completion for an M.A. in missiology. Independent studies have educated me further, in several fields. Mrs. Appalachian Irishman and I were missionaries in Russia for five years (1994 - 1999). She's a good wife, who puts up with me.

Why don't you ever wear a scarf? It doesn't need to be cold outside for your neck to feel naked.

How the <bleep> do you know that I don't wear a scarf? Are you Big Brother? For your information, I did wear a scarf in Russia, but it had to be below freezing (0C) before I would wear it! I wouldn't wear the shapka (fur hat) until it was -10C.
