Location Conway, Arkansas, United States
Introduction Army kid (not a brat)...Germany, Arkansas, Texas, Hawaii, Georgia. BS in mental retardation and elementary education; later, M.Ed. in learning disabilities and behavior disorders. After a brilliant career (cough cough) I dashed headlong into motherhood (accounting for some of the brain damage and most of the gray hair.) Married for 30 years to a consulting psychologist--Cincinnati, Dallas, Silicon Valley, Chagrin Falls/Solon (east of Cleveland.) Now retired and hiding out in the MidSouth.
Interests quilting, gardening, fishing, reading, traveling, crossword puzzling, writing (almost any hand-craft...I've done batiks, paper-making, knit/crochet/tat, rug hooking)....and I cook
Favorite Movies Naughty Marietta, The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill..., WordPlay, Cat Ballou, The Producers, Blazing Saddles, The Twelve Chairs, The Wrong Box
Favorite Music Classical, Bluegrass, Ragtime, Early Jazz. I listen to instrumental music mostly, but the occasional opera appeals.
Favorite Books The Edge of Sadness (Edwin O'Connor)/ the Aubrey/Maturin novels (Patrick O'Brien) any works by Wallace Stegner, Anne Proulx, Ann Lamotte, Harold Kushner....and I read cookbooks for fun

Why must we grow too soon old and too late smart?
