Personal Quote I would rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I am not.
About Me As a PK (preacher's kid), I've lived many places and attended many schools. I'm retired from IBM; have been in Administrative work all the time I've worked. Still do bookwork for hubby's business. Love belonging to the RHS and most of the time love being Queen. My favorite pastime of all time is shopping.
Interests Spend lots of time on the computer, both for business and pleasure. I love to read, mostly fiction - usually suspense. My doll collection is eclectic, for the most part. Lately, I've been concentrating on red hatter dolls.
Hobbies Decorative painting, crochet, some needlework, In the past, did a lot of plastic canvas stitching and crocheting.
Music I love almost anything played on the piano. My favorite genres are new age, oldies from the 50s-60s, some classical and some country. My favorite musical artiste is Yanni; most of his music soothes my soul while other selections are very stimulating. Anything that doesn't hurt my ears or offend my senses is good.
Movies Steel Magnolias, Pretty Woman, Legally Blonde, Miss Congeniality, Die Hard and Lethal Weapon series, all Star Trek movies, To Kill a Mocking Bird, and many, many more.
TV Three and a Half Men, Rules of Engagement, CSI, The Big Bang, Criminal Minds and movies
Books Mostly suspense - a few of my favorite authors are: Erica Spindler, James Patterson, Stephen Cannell, Lisa Gardner, Sara Paretski, Tammi Hoag, Tess Gerritsen, Iris Johansen, Jonathan Kellerman, Lisa Jackson, Sue Grafton, Dorothy Gilman, John Grisham, Lilian Jackson Braun ... whoa - guess that's more than a few. Can you tell I love to read?
Likes Red Hat Society, chocolate, shopping, family, friends, playing games
Dislikes Lies, jealousy, tardiness, duplicity, violence, tax time, housework
Vices Chocolate - no, wait. That's not a vice! I'm quick to lose my temper (but don't hold a grudge), self-indulgent, too much of a perfectionist
Virtues Honest, dependable, optimistic, empathetic
Family Married 45 years; have 3 pretty wonderful daughters; have 4 outstanding grandsons. My only sister doesn't live close, but we are close in heart.
