About Me

I am a 62 year old Grandmother. I live for my family and have 6 grandchildren that are the apple of my eye. I would love to know that we are giving them a good future and peaceful world to live in. But I fear that is not so. I remain optimistic that this ball that we call home will get it right one of these days. I married at 18 and will celebrate 45 years of marriage this September. Nursing has been my work for 40 years and I sill work at it. I also run a vintage shop in a co-op selling treasures that I find and my husband and I restore. I believe everything can be reinvented with a purpose. My husband and I raised 2 children. Teaching them that education was the key to a good life and they went after their dreams. I have had a good life and with deep roots that my parents gave me and wings to fly. I passed that on to our family and they also make family the most important part of their lives. I had strong woman role models and am a product of the 60's with all the changes that went on around us for women. But I cherish the time in the 50's growing up with Mom home and every spare moment on my Grandparents farm. I have had a great life!

I'd like to meet

Florence Nightengale, Eleanor Roosevelt, Queen Victoria and Mother Theresa

Activities

I play the Wii with my grandchildren and love the golf, bowling and tennis. Does that count as activity? LOL

Interests

My interest has been ever changing over the years. I have quilted, gardened and learned the computer. I love to read, bake and go to auctions. We built a cabin in the woods behind our home a few years ago and time spend there is peaceful and I enjoy a lot.

Favorite Music

I like all kinds of music. I grew up with Blue Grass and Country, Love Boardway Motown was a favorite growing up, Irish and just plain good music.

Favorite TV Shows

I rarely watch TV but if I do I like the Amazing Race, Hoarders, American Pickers and alot of the older shows such as Golden Girls and I Love Lucy.

Favorite Movies

I love a good thriller or mysteries. Since I have younger grandchildren I have not missed to many of their movies.

Favorite Books

Psychological mysteries, bio, and Historican Novels if I read.

Favorite Quotes

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Success: To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded! ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Favorite Heroes

Parents, Grandmother, Husband and The Family * I must add my Son who served in the Army for 20 years He did it with dignity and honor. He also received a Purple Heart and Bronze Star. Now he will not talk about it but Mama well, she will and proudly. So we are a Flag Waving Military supporting family and proud of it.

    So far I've written a classical piece. A couple of people have told me that it reminds them of a Danny Elfman piece. That was a HUGE compliment, he has been an inspiration to my music and he's such an accomplished amazing musician. And the other piece is going to be a lyrical song, minor key to major key, I would like to add more instruments to it when I'm done, beside the piano, but would have to find willing future "band" memebers to do that. Thank you for asking. Thank you for the complements. Oh and I can't read music, I only play by ear.

    LOL...I know EXACTLY what you mean...They are mad...i mean as in insane and completely devoid of ANY common sense so it's no wonder we cannot get along with them grandma. They use NO logic or reasoning when arguing their side. They are classic examples of the pot calling the kettle black and cannot or will not even recognize it!! Yeah we are in BIG trouble if this is the next ruling generation..but i think Jesus will be back LONG before they get their hands on the helm...Lord i DO hope so..Don't worry it is not you or me it is them and their liberal brainwashing they got from liberal teachers who cram their anti American sentiments down our kid's throats and have for a long time. That's where it all starts and liberal warped parents!! There are ALOT of us sane folks on here and i am glad you are on our team...the RIGHT side..LOL
