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 (sadly we lost his buddy basset Jack to cancer this June) . We have three adult children - a son in Hong Kong, a daughter in Prague, and a son in Texas. We have also been hosts to 4 exchange students (2 from Germany, 1 from Belgium, and 1 from the Czech Republic), and an occasional couchsurfer (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 have visited all 50 US states except one-(North Dakota)
-I am a 28 year Stage III cancer survivor (my greatest achievement ).
-At the age of 69 I await my newest mission in life:)
I treasure each card I receive, but these make me smile a little bigger :)
