About me

Gender Female
Location Wildwood, Missouri, United States
Introduction Late-to-the-party, vertically-challenged, right-handed, semi-retired, apparently-hyphenated female. I'm still trading on my 2008 first place win of the Erma Bombeck Writing Competition. Since it's an every-other-year event, I'm still technically the reigning champion, so I have given myself permission to flaunt it a while longer! In the interest of full disclosure, I should say that I asked my husband to re-work the photo of me in the banner to remove ten years from my neck. (Thank you, Nora Ephron.) I also asked him to whiten my teeth, but he pointed out that my teeth weren't showing. Always a stickler for details. Now the photo here in the sidebar should have been filtered heavily, or shot through gauze, but alas, it is your basic wysiwyg of the aging process. What was I thinking?
Interests Current affairs, reading, poetry, politics, healthcare, quilting, crossword puzzles, sudoku, kakuro and grandchildren (especially mine.)
Favorite Movies Chicago, Annie Hall, Sophie's Choice, Cinderella Man, Shawshank Redemption, Roman Holiday, It's a Wonderful Life
Favorite Music Show tunes! --especially anything by Stephen Sondheim.
Favorite Books Charms for the Easy Life, Shadow Baby, Away, The Secret Life of Bees, To Kill a Mockingbird, All Over But the Shouting, Straight Man, Little Bee, The Elegance of the Hedgehog

The love potion you made tastes terrible. How will you drink it?

Chug it, choke it down holding my nose, having faith in the outcome!
