I have lived in Cookeville, TN, since 1994, when I married my husband, John. He is a physics professor at TTU, and we met when we were working in a physics lab together. He has two sons from a previous marriage, but I consider them my own. They are both married and the oldest one, Pete, has our only grandchild, a rambunctious, red-headed 5-year old girl named Wiley. They live in the mountains of North Carolina, and we don't get to see them as often as we would like. Ian, his younger son, and his wife, Kimberly, currently live in Washington, DC, after spending 9 years in Wilmington, NC, where they went to college together.

John and I travel every summer to a National Park either in the US or Canada, where we spend about 2 weeks enjoying the beauty of our country. We love to hike, take pictures, and enjoy all that we can about one of the US's (or Canada's) natural beauties.

In my spare time, I enjoy knitting and cross stitching (although knitting seems to hold my interest much longer these days). I also enjoy gardening when it's not too cold or too hot.

I also love our two cats. Both adopted us initially, but now they hold special places in our hearts. Spook, the older one, is solid black except for a quarter-sized patch of white on her belly. Furnie, who was rescued out of our furnace, is a tortie with one orange paw. She is still a kitten and tries to torture Spook. Furnie is just playing, but Spook is too dignified to play those silly kitten games!
