A warm Texas "Howdy" to you - I look forward to your card:-)
I am a retired 6th grade teacher living in the Piney Woods of East Texas with my husband and our basset hound, Snorkel. We have three adult children - a son in Hong Kong, a daughter in Prague, and a son in Texas. We have also hosted 4 exchange students (2 from Germany, 1 from Belgium, and 1 from the Czech Republic), and an occasional couch surfer (most recently from Denmark and Latvia).
A little about me
-All four of my grandparents immigrated from Sweden .
-I studied German and worked two summers in Bremen and one summer in Munich (a long time ago!).
-I was an optometrist for 20 years.
-I was a 6th grade teacher for the next 22 years.
-I am a 28 year Stage III cancer survivor (my greatest achievement ).
-At the age of 70 I await my newest mission in life:)
-I have been fortunate in travel but still dream of visiting Barcelona, Rome, Warsaw, Budapest, Portugal, St. Petersburg, and North Dakota (my last state:) as well as my favorite city on Earth, London. I am open to other suggestions:)
