About me

Occupation Manager in an Insurance Company
Location Oreland, PA, United States
Introduction I was married on the 4th of July, 1976, to Rod, who still makes me see fireworks. He's retired from his "real" job, & is now an antques & collectibles dealer who also buys/sells Featherweights; I work full time in Center City Philadelphia. He's a die-hard Phillies fan; I love to cook & have a passion for quilting. We have two grown/married children, Andy and Katie.

Andy & his beautiful wife Jamie have blessed us with 4 gorgeous grandchildren, Annabelle (6), Ian (5), Madeline (2) and baby Owen. Andy is in medical sales; Jamie was a teacher, but is now a stay-at-home mom.

Katie and her handsome husband Paul have two little girls, Alma Eleanora (named after my mother) and Sophia Ruth. They are also parents to Lily (a Great Dane), and two cute kitties. Kate's a 5th grade teacher; Paul is a Cardic Surgical ICU nurse.

Rod and I share our home with Maggie the Wonder Dog (heart of gold, brains of dust), and Junior, a tabby cat whose momma cat left him under our bushes 8 years ago.

Your pajamas have duckies on them. Why did you switch from choo-choos?

Because the duckies quack me up!
