Location Athens, Wisconsin, United States
Introduction Hello & Warm Greetings from the cold, cold land of Nod....OK, OK, Wisconsin! It might as well be Nod. Why I live here is beyond me. Well, maybe because I was born here....I am many things, and not much at all. Most importantly, I guess, I am a mother of one headstrong son, and the wife of one like-minded (i.e., headstrong) husband. Together (:o)), we have one dog (a Siberian) and two wonderfully crazy cats. I have a few degrees (i.e., Spanish, Anthropology/Archaeology, even a J.D....yup...I was a corporate lawyer specializing in securities/ banking law, acquisitions, mergers, and divestitures. Gave it up to "simplify"....Well, THAT didn't work out so well...) I ended my career as a law professor (who would have thunk it?). For now, I am just trying desperately to hang on. In short, I am a jack of all trades (and master of none). And I am a hermit..definitely a hermit. .Thanks for taking the time to stop by and visit. ~Robin~
