A few things you may not know about me…
1. I love God, family, and friends, and I’ve harbored a long-time love affair with Tom Selleck and his contagious laugh.
2. I have an aversion to food items marked “fat-free,” and in spite of what the food pyramid teaches, I stay perfectly healthy with the three C’s: Coffee, Chocolate, and Chinese food.
3. I love to read mystery/suspense with everyday people solving crimes or thrillers with evil serial killers that inevitably get payback in the end.
4. I’m a lover of motorcycles, off-road and on, and at one time our family-of-four boasted a collection of seven. Now with the kids grown, we only have three.
4. I can tell you from experience that two dogs are not easier than one and when your adult daughter brings another one home and wants to abandon it on your doorstep – JUST SAY NO!
5. I’ve been married for over forty years and it only sometimes feels like forever.
6. I love to garden and grow fresh vegetables. I can pepper jam, tomatoes, green beans, pickles, peppers, and salsa depending on the year.
7. From the time I learned to read, books have played a huge part in my life. Some of my favorite memories of childhood are from reading books: under my blankets with a flashlight, in school, while the teacher rambled on, and in the car while traveling. I don’t remember my actual childhood much, but I feel like I led a pretty exciting life through the pages of those books.
