About me

Occupation currently a homemaker, but have done office work, house cleaning, pet sitting, vet assistant
Location Georgia
Introduction My name is Linda. I'm sixty-two years old, have been married for 36 years (to the same person), have an adult daughter (Melody), two grandsons (Garrett 7, Conner 4), and three dogs (Eva Jean/white boxer, Oliver/longhaired chihuahua, and Charity/terrier mix). You will hear a lot about all of them! I'm driven to tears, insanity and acts of interference by animal neglect. And I'm a homemaker even in this unstable economy. I guess that all sounds pretty boring! But I have experienced many life conditions along the way (adoption, alcoholism of a parent, divorce, stepparent conflict, teenage angst, illness, failed marriage, miscarriages, finding my birth family, alzheimers, death, etc.). I think I have enough thoughts running thru my brain to keep you entertained or have a stimulating discussion.
Interests animals-both pet and wild, animal rights, gardening, grandsons, clutter control projects, grandsons
