About me

Occupation author
Location Chugiak, Alaska, United States
Introduction I love my life! At 20, I traveled to Europe and saw everything I wanted to see and experience.30, my dream of Alaska, in part, came true; I took a cruise up the inland passage. By the time I was 40, I was working in Alaska, married and had 5 children. Also when I turned 40, I wanted to see the South Pacific. Our family traveled to the Cook Islands and visited Paradise. I told myself that when I turned 50 I wanted to do something with space travel. In 2000, Phil and I went to French Guiana, South America, to watch the launching of his company's satellite.I have had a secret desire to go to Israel and Greece. In 1999 we went to Israel and this year we are going to Greece. Now that I'm 60, I decided to swim with the dolphins. So Isaac my grandson and I went to San Diego and swam with some adult and baby dolphins. I am currently learning Tai Chi and Qui gong so I can make my body strong enough to learn how to tap dance. My children and grandchildren are healthy and prospering, my husband is wonderful, I have great friends, church, home, money, food, and cars that work. I am rich in love and life experiences and I am grateful. Now you can see why I love my life!
Interests Flying small aircraft, gardening large vegetables, knitting socks, and a want-to-be tap dancer
Favorite Movies Always, Now Voyager, Ol' Yeller, Mama Mia, Dr. Zavago, The Good Earth, Up, Young Frankinstein
Favorite Music I like all kinds of music. It really depends upon my mood. I am not into heavy metal, it hurts my ears.
Favorite Books Too many to mention.

Your pajamas have duckies on them. Why did you switch from choo-choos?

I traveled as far as that ol' choo choo would carry me in my dreams. Now I dream of rubber duckies in my bath tub and then flying south for the winter.
