I retired early from teaching high school Spanish and English. I am relearning to live life enjoyably!
I have two grown children. My son Drew made a Ghostbusters video - a spoof, much filmed in the rotunda of our state capitol! Check it out:
My daughter Kristin has given me two grandchildren. Little Pete (July 2012) is precious! So precocious! Katey (November 2014) is a joy!
Enjoy this digital book about Arkansas!
Fun information about Arkansas!
My Facebook page documents my RECEIVED/SENT postcards.
My favorite piece of music - if I were alone and could only have one piece of music with me - Braid OST - Lullaby set by Shira Kammen. It seems to encompass all emotions: sadness, hope, joy. It is from the video game Braid. Don't let that put you off. It is a beautiful piece of music.
I have many interests: traveling, reading, needlework (especially knitting and crocheting); calligraphy, cake decorating, and oil painting. I really want to learn watercolor! I especially LOVE to dance. I have trained in ballet, tap, and jazz and enjoy swing dancing.
I prefer single scene images when possible. I have developed an appreciation and love for STAMPS! I have received cards with some exceptionally lovely stamps on them.
