About Leslie

Thanks for visiting the new home of my humorous observations about life. Blog posts from Tales of Wild Boomba and She Said to No one in Particular can be found in the Categories listed in the sidebar to the right.

No one likes change, especially me, but I’ve decided to relinquish my amateur blogging status to go pro. I realize that by doing so I will be giving up any chance of ever competing in the Blogging Olympics, but a girl’s gotta make a living.

I knew I was destined for great things when after writing copy about lawnmowers and tractors for the Sears Catalog I was promoted to write about men’s underwear.

I consulted many learned people about the name I should use for this new website, including my dogs Phoebe and Ava. My husband Richard said without hesitation, “Use Chase. No one will be able to remember or spell Korengold.”

I’ve been a Korengold for 27 years and counting, but I knew he was right. All I had to do was think about all the mail that has arrived addressed to Leslie Karen Gold, Mr. Leslie Korengold, and the telemarketer who asked to speak to Mrs. Corndog.

Thanks to my wrangler, Ryan Erwin, I will be able to spend time working on the books I’ve been writing while he takes care of all of the website’s technological stuff that my brain just can’t comprehend.

My goal is to become a successful author so that Richard can retire from his job as a Wealth Manager (for other people) and fulfill his lifelong dream of being a Wal-Mart greeter in Minocqua, Wisconsin.

Special thanks to Ryan Erwin, Web Design & Internet Marketing Chicago the mastermind behind this website. Ryan, thank you for your brilliant insights, gentle suggestions, and unending patience. You’re so going to need it.

And thanks to Sharon Rosenzweig, Investigative Cartoonist, and co-creator of The Comic Torah TheComicTorah.com with her husband, Aaron Freeman, for capturing every nuance and essence of my family “as the cartoons you are”. Sharon, thanks for feeding my body, mind, and soul, and making me laugh until I schnitz water out my nose. Aaron, thank you for nicknaming me “Funny” and making me laugh so hard I swallowed my gum.
