|Location||Hamilton Hill, WA, Australia|
|Introduction||I am 85 years of age, having been born in 1932. I am a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and a bit of an all round twit. Over the years I have done quite a lot of family genealogy and unearthed some family secrets which has been great fun. I am married with a great husband (second time around has worked for me); I have a daughter and a son, four granddaughters and two grandsons, and three fantastic great-granddaughters plus a lovely step-great-granddaughter in Alaska whom I have never met although I have seen her on Skype. I have had two total hip replacements (June '08 and January '09) but as I have an extremely bad back (neck to tail) and a knee that won't behave, I still can't get about very much so am a stay at home. Maybe that is why I decided to take this drastic step and begin my own blog. Will I keep it up? Goodness alone knows, only time will tell but here goes anyway. I don't have a lot of followers but those I do have are very precious to me.|
|Interests||Family, genealogy, reading, crochet, my computer, my husband and our cat|
|Favorite Movies||Dances with Wolves; Dr Zhivago: Ryan's Daughter; Storm Boy;|
|Favorite Music||Varies from old type rock and roll through to many of the classics. Love to listen to Roger Whittaker sing his ballads.|
|Favorite Books||Books by James Patterson, Lee Child, Sue Grafton, Michael Rowbotham and many more of the same genre.|
Unlike a dog, how can a turtle ever be naked?
I never get water stuck in my ear so the problem doesn't arise.
