I am a retired teacher--taught 1st graders for 35 years. Am now very involved in volunteer projects, mostly throught my church. I love to travel and cruise. Am married (45 years) and have 1 son and 2 grandsons.

September, 2009
I've decided it's time to start over! I am determined to do better and to be successful!
I do get in regular exercise at Curves but I've not been very good with the diet! BUT, I'm not going on a diet, I'm going to work on life changes especially with my eating habits!

August 2018

Four and a half years since I lost my husband. I still talk to him but know one day I will see him. I have discovered that I’m stronger than I ever thought. I continue to travel and have learned I can do things he always did.





June 2014
My life has changed drastically since losing Chuck in January. I am learning I can do things I never thought I could do--like mowing the lawn! Chuck was the one who loved to work outside and I enjoyed what he planted! This year I took the easy way out--I planted artificial flowers! They bloom all year and I never have to worry about watering them!
October 2014
I'm approaching 9 months of being alone. I don't like it but I'm keeping busy. I have gotten back to Curves and I have lost 25 pounds. I WILL SURVIVE!

    Happy Friday! Love is in the air! They say "love is a many splendored thing", and so I thought it might be a-propose for some Valentine giggles about marriage to get ourselves in the right frame of mind for the weekend ahead. Believe me, this was no half-hearted project for me; I put my whole heart into it! I know you're getting excited, and can heartly wait, so let's get pumpin' . . .

    emoticon After a quarrel, a wife said to her husband, 'You know, I was a fool when I married you.”
    The husband replied, 'Yes, dear, but I was in love and didn't even notice.”

    emoticon A man inserted an ad in the classifieds: It read: “Wife wanted”.
    The next day he received hundreds of letters.
    They all said the same thing: 'You can have mine.”

    emoticon If a man steals your wife, there is no better revenge than to let him keep her.

    emoticon "I married Miss Right. I just didn't realize her first name was Always."

    emoticon A husband said to his wife, "No, I don't hate your relatives. In fact, I like your mother-in-law better than I like mine."

    emoticon A woman turns to her husband on their silver wedding anniversary and says, Honey, will you still love me when my hair turns grey?"
    Her husband replies, "Why not? I stuck with you through the other six shades."


    emoticon After finishing our Chinese food, my husband and I cracked open our fortune cookies.
    "You go first", he said.
    Mine read, “Be quiet for a little while.”
    "Now it's your turn", I said.
    His read, “Talk while you have a chance.”

    emoticon My wife just nudged me and said, "You weren't even listening, were you?".
    I thought, That's a strange way to start a conversation. . .

    emoticon An interviewer asked a married couple what their secret was to their long and happy marriage.
    The husband chimed in, "My wife and I always compromise."
    "I admit I'm wrong, and she agrees with me."


    emoticon Shortly before our 25th wedding anniversary, my husband sent 25 long-stemmed yellow roses to me at my office.
    A few days later, I plucked all the petals and dried them. On the night of our anniversary, I spread the petals over the bed and lay on top of them, wearing only a negligee.
    As I’d hoped, I got a reaction from my husband.
    When he saw me, he shouted, “Are those potato chips?”

    I hope some of these made you laugh wholeheartedly! emoticon

    I heartily wish each of you a very Happy Valentine's Day! Enjoy your weekend!

    Happy Spotlight Day!! emoticon I too am from where Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota meet! I lived in South Sioux City and Hubbard NE for 40 years and recently moved to Louisiana. I miss my family but don't miss that weather!!! I hear yesterday was especially cold. We were in Sioux City in October and saw some snow. The picture for my avatar was taken there. Hope you have a great day! Good luck with the challenge. emoticon
