I like John Wayne westerns, some of Clint Eastwood's movies. One of my favorites is the Legend of Zorro, with Catherine Zeta-Jones. I like the Shrek movies, and some of the other new animated features. I don't like gory and highly violent movies, and steamy sex scenes are only watched with hubby when we are alone. Second-Hand Lions is a great family-oriented movie. Walking Across Egypt is another favorite. I'm not into porn.

Most of my favorites are from Country, or 50s & 60s rock, but there are a few classical pieces that I enjoy. I'm a big fan of George Strait, Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Trace Adkins, Kenny Chesney, Jordin Sparks, the Eagles, Highway 101, and many more. I like a wide variety of music, which drives hubby nuts, because his favorites are pretty much just country, and not the new country, but the old classic country, like Hank Williams, Ernest Tubb, and that kind.

One of my all-time favorite books has always been Gone With The Wind, but I enjoy a wide variety of books. In fact, I have my own eBay Book Store. Sometimes it's very difficult for me to sell a book, because I want to keep it to read it, but I have a pretty sweet deal with our local library, and get to read a wide variety of books. I also have almost all my old nursing textbooks, writing books, photography books, and art books. Genres I love include historical romance, medical thriller, mysteries, and I've been known to crack a classic novel or two. I also enjoy some spiritual material, with the best being the Bible.

I love all the colors in the rainbow, as you can probably tell from my gaudy page. I will tone it down a little when I get a chance..Just playing right now, so please have patience. If I had to pick favorite colors, I would say that I wear mostly blues and earth tones, but love red and yellow too. See, I can't decide. (Just one of the idiosyncracies of being a Libra. Hee Hee!

I love roast beef or ham, if it is tender and slow baked. Macaroni and cheese, corn, green beans and carrots. I love potatoes in just about every way, but please leave out the onions, peppers, and cucumbers from anything I eat as they do horrible things to my digestive system. Popcorn with butter, anything chocolate, ice cream...goodness, this is making me hungry! I love fruit, especially my mom's frozen peaches and strawberries, pineapple. I don't eat many cherries or rhubarb, but love good bananas, apples, oranges, etc.

I just want to announce my new page is ready for viewing, with my own colors, my own profile and my own slideshow, which is rather long and will repeat, so spend however much time you wish enjoying it. I realize there are some repeats in the pictures, and one or two that didn't turn out quite as expected. I'll work on that when I can. Comments always welcome, even constructive criticism. Have a nice day!

I'm a registered nurse, married since 1971 to the same ornery fella. We raised 4 children, but lost our youngest, Teresa in a house fire in 1999. Her daughter was 3 when she lost her mommy, and is now a beautiful 13 year old young lady. She is also the oldest of our 9 grandchildren. I work full time as daytime charge nurse in a nursing home in my area. I tried hospital work, but nursing home is my comfort zone. I'm not an adrenaline junky, like some nurses. I don't enjoy Emergency Room type excitement. I prefer the slower paced, more relaxed type of nursing. I worked for many years on evenings and nights, but now do only days, unless it is an absolute emergency.
My life is my family, my job, and my hobbies. I am Catholic and enjoy taking part in church activities.
I made a slideshow of photos I've taken of my children and grandchildren. This may be edited occasionally as new photos become available. I hope you enjoy it.

My job, my town, my family, and my hobbies, which include art ((painting with oils and watercolors, drawing with pencil, colored pencil, and pastels), my eBay bookstore, photography, computer games and blogging, my pets (4 fish and a dog, Cuddles), watching my TV shows (Extreme Makeover, Home Edition, House, America's Got Talent and American Idol, America's Funniest Home Videos, and CSI (all of them). I watch other tv shows too, and old movies.)) I also enjoy my husband's flower garden. The slideshow will give you a peek at what he has done!

I like driving in the country, especially in the mountains and around lakes. I like going to country concerts, spending time with my family, blogging and playing computer games, and spending time with hubby. I like eating in restaurants, especially our local bar/grill, TailGaters, Chili's, KFC, Long John Silver's, and many more.

People who are rude or lie to me. Co-workers who constantly complain, but never try to do anything to fix the problems, drivers who fly by my house well above the speed limit, or work with noisy machinery nearby late at night when I'm trying to sleep. I can't eat onions, peppers, or cucumbers, and really don't care for rhubarb, undercooked bacon, or greasy limp french fries. I don't like getting things together for income tax preparation, or balancing my checkbook or budgeting. I don't like being behind on bills, and get frustrated when I have to be. I don't like sitting in boring inservices at work that repeat the same material every year ad nauseum and not being able to do anything else while sitting there, like charting or reading, or crocheting, anything to keep awake. I don't like extreme weather, although I love to watch for tornadoes in the summer. I don't like my feet getting cold and wet...that hurts. I don't like being hot and unable to take off clothing or cool down. I don't like losing in the lottery, but I have to buy a ticket before I can win, and I don't like spending my money on them when I have those bills to pay...sigh.

I think I already covered this section above. My art, my computer, my family, tv, books, riding in country. I also like to do word puzzles. I have a program that will make word search puzzles or crossword puzzles out of lists of words I input, that is a lot of fun. I sometimes make puzzles with the residents' names from the nursing home and give them to the activities director. I'm president of our local art club and would really like to just be a common member for a while. But no one else wants the responsibilities I guess, because I've been president for about 8 years now. I love playing with my dog, Cuddles, and I spoil her rotten. She makes me laugh and keeps me company while Dennis is gone in the truck.
