Well, come on in and make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to drop by. Why don't you go ahead and get something to drink and make yourself comfortable and start tiptoeing thru my pages? I hope you enjoy yourself and will return for another visit.

Oh, before you start, maybe you would like to know a little about me. Well, I'm originally from West Virginia, but now we live in Florida. We've been here for many years.

My husband, John, and I have been married for 44 years. Now that's a long time for anyone to be with another person. LOL. We have 5 kids. That's 4 boys and 1 girl.

UPDATE: We have now been married for 54 years. Added to our family has been 7 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. SAD NOTE: We lost our son Mike in June, 2009. We miss him very much.

I taught swimmng for many years. I was a Sweet Adeline for a long time. I still sing in a quartet, but just for fun. I even directed a small chorus for a while.

UPDATE: I no longer sing with Sweet Adelines. Instead, I have home-schooled 3 grandchildren (all graduated), and now am involved with the neighborhood association that I helped to start. I also babysit my great-granddaughter while my granddaughter works. UPDATE: My great-granddaughter has moved to North Carolina, so I'm now a volunteer with the Hollywood Police Dept. Our Crimewatch Program, which is run thru the Police Dept., keeps me very busy as the zone coordinator for my neighborhood as well as doing Mobile Patrol a few times a week.

I was mostly a stay-at-home mom. I drove a school bus for a few years to help out with the money. I also became a WSI (Water Safety Instructor) and taught swimming. My hobbies are writing music and poetry, but my newest passion is building webpages. I've met some wonderful people on the net that have given me all kinds of help.

UPDATE: I quit building webpages when I started homeschooling, but I'm now building a webpage for our association. I also don't have much time for reading or writing poetry or music. But, that's ok. I'm enjoying life.

Well, that's about all there is to that. Let me know what you think of my page before you leave by signing my guest book. Hope you enjoy your visit and please, come back again sometime. Bring a friend.
UPDATE: The guest book doesn't work anymore, but you can always email me at Enjoy your visit.
