About me

Occupation Homemaker
Location Fairbanks, Alaska
Introduction My husband Marty (variously known as Ray or Bruce) is a carpenter. We are both retired. Between us we have eight children, six grandchildren and one great grandchild. They all live in either the Fairbanks area or the Seattle area. Marty spends a lot of time in his shop, which is divided into three rooms: a mechanics shop, a carpentry shop, and space for storage of his classic cars. I enjoy gardening and photography. One of my passions--or perhaps obsession is closer--is setting up my North Pole Village every Christmas. We both love hockey, both watching and playing. Marty still plays in the Oldtimers League here in Fairbanks, but I think my skates are hung up for good. Marty and I both enjoy traveling and we like to takel roadtrips, with the emphasis on the backroads. There is so much to see and do in the U.S. and Canada that I know we will never see it all, but we want to see as much of it as we can.
Interests Photography, travel, hockey, Christmas village, gardening, quilting, scrapbooking, reading, cooking, family.
