Again..never leaving...TOO MUCH STUFF TO PACK UP! When I retire ( 10+ years) ..open the door & FREE>>>TAKE IT ALL!!!!! ( Except MY good books...save for grandkids!) :)


I married my high school sweetheart ( actually started "dating"..he would come over to watch TV with  me & MY PARENTS... when we were 15! I know..15! ( NOT MY DAUGHTER..NO WAY!)
Our families grew up together..I know sounds kinda weird! No really acquaintances...
We have 4 kids ( grown adults now )..
Twin boys (29)...son #3 ( 26)...and daughter ( 23)

3 granddaughters...5yrs old,  2 1/2 yrs old, and 16 months..AND
