Personal Information:
Born in Kansas. Grew up in the SF Bay Area. Living in the Sacramento, CA area which I love. Married with two mischievous yet loving kitties. Worked in public service for 26 years and proud of it. Recently retired and working on taking care of myself and finding out who I am after being work-focused for much of my life.


Other Information:
I love to run but have had injuries over the past years so mainly walk, hike, cycle and swim. I was training for my first triathlon when I broke my ankle (getting into a kayak!) I hope to be able to train for one again. I also like being outside, the ocean, the mountains, animals, especially our two kitties, reading, watching movies and TV series, spending time with my good friends.

    Betsy, thank you for your kind comment on my page. I appreciate you!

    I also worry about you when I see the news about the awful fires in California. Oh my--what a terrible time your state is going through. I hope you have not been too affected by the disaster, and I pray for those who have suffered and are still suffering.

    Please take care and stay safe.

    This is the season...
    she will make beautiful things.
    Not perfect things....
    but honest things that speak to who she is
    And who she is called to be. - M.H.Nichols

    Betsy, I was so moved and comforted by your kind words about the loss of our precious Joey. your comment means a lot to me and helps in a time of great sadness. It's been a week, and I am still reminded of our sweet boy at every turn.

    I hope you are doing well, my dear.

    I will try to remember to ask one of my nieces this morning if *she* knows whether there is a phone booth in Salina... she's driving up for today's events. emoticon
