Now in my early seventies, I'm following in my father's footsteps. Like him, I also have the "writing bug". Recently widowed after nearly forty nine years of marriage, I am the mother of two grown children, and grandmother of three. I'm a retired high school teacher, substitute, and civil servant, a bit on the "nerdy" side. I like computer stuff, as well as genealogy and square dancing. My philosophy is to meet and greet life, not wait for it to happen.
