I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
thought I would post a little something about myself and why
I'm here...as well as why Roxanne chose me to be the co-moderator.
I am going to be 43 on the 10th of December. I have a fantastic
husband, 2 daughters (16 and 18) and a soon-to-be 21 year old son in
college. I've been married 11+ years and love it. Marriage is a
good thing when God is in control!
I live in South Dakota, but was born and raised in Buffalo, NY.
I love to mimic NYC folks, but I didn't live anywhere near there. I
just watch a LOT of Law & Order...lol. I'm from the Niagara Falls
part of the state.
I've lived in a few different states. When I was 20 I joined
the Navy and was stationed on Oahu, Hawaii -- I know, somebody had to
do it, right? lol. Then I was discharged in 1986 with a medical
discharge. I am now 100% service connected disabled and receive a
disability compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
after going back to NY, I married and moved to FLorida where
I lived in Ft. Myers for 6 years. Divorced, met my current (and
last) husband and moved to South Dakota. That's how I ended up here.
I don't work, but help my husband with his business by doing the
books and marketing. He is a computer repair guy :) I also help a
real estate agent in my town with her marketing, running errands,
newsletters. ..etc. The last thing that I do is write. I am an
author, hopefully soon to be published. The name of my book is The
Scapegoat's Revenge. I am in the editing state, with a wonderful
editor, who, hopefully, can help me get to a publisher. I'm so
I LOVE to crochet. I've been crocheting for 2 years and
my "teacher" said she had never met anyone who had learned so quick.
Thankfully I had knitted for a long time and was able to pick up
crochet very quickly. My crochet coach is 82 years old and we share
the same birthday! We are kindred spirits...she' s a great person.
Because of my love to crochet, I have created many, many things
that have nowhere to go. So I decided to find some place that would
accept donations where I could relax, by crocheting, and still get
use out of my things. I was thrilled to find a group who donates to
veterans/soldiers. This is a small group and quiet, but I am hoping
to encourage interaction and build the group! I'm sure that is the
main reason why Roxanne chose me to co-moderate the group. I'm on
everyday, so if you have a question, post or email me and I'll try to
answer...if not, I'll email Roxanne and she can help me. I'm
learning and appreciate your patience!
Thanks to all for joining this group. You will feel blessed for
the work/fun you are doing!
