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.

    Duncan Phyfe chairs... and table... my maternal grandmother's, beat up enough that none of the antique collectors in the family wanted them when she passed, so I raised my hand.

    Betsy! Thank you so much for your comment on my blog about adopting the fur balls! I loved your story about how you found Taffy and Trinket, quite similar to ours. Our girls have been with us for nine days now, and it hasn't been 100% smooth sailing so far (will elaborate in a blog), but we love having them here, and they seem happy in their new home, so all is well.

    Hope you're doing fine.

    I know Bets, it is the pits and not a great way to start the year. I am just keeping my fingers crossed that the steroid injections will give me some relief.....hugs, f

    Hi! I saw your new note on the SacramentoSpark team page. Thanks for checking in!
    So it's a new year, with new goals and plans. I'm doing well for the 3rd day in a row. Gotta keep this up. I've done it before, I can do it again. I feel like I'm the Little Train That Could!!!
    Have a good week!
