Introduction I am fifty years old and a recent empty-nester of three grown children: nearly 19, 26 & 30. None married, no grand-babies:( I have been married one time for 34 years so far. I am the sixth of eight sisters. I've done a bit of traveling. My restless daughter took me to New York, Paris and London. I love to scrapbook, do needle art, beading,quilt, sew, decorative painting, home decorating and anything else that inspires me after looking at a magazine, HGTV, or the web! I enjoy having internet friends and think of them as modern day pen-pals.
Interests I love collecting just about everything: postcards, Paris memorabilia, teacups, depression glass saucers, marbles, flag photos, flag trivia, Christmas ornaments, tea cups/saucers, blah, blah, blah.
Favorite Movies Regarding Henry, The Wedding Planner, Elizabeth Town, Wizard of Oz, Gone With the Wind, Sabrina, Pleasantville, Chocolate, You've Got Mail, Sleepless in Seattle, Changling, The Kid, A Simple Plan, The Panic Room, Flight Plan

Which do you prefer and why: whittling with soap or whistling with wood?

Random question answer: I would rather whittle with soap than wood because I would be much less likely to cut myself and much more likely to achieve my goal.
