First of all, SHE was actually born in Washington DC and grew up in Annandale, VA. SHE graduated from Radford College before it became a University and became a teacher in Bath County VA. There was a disagreement with the School Board one year and all the teachers quit. (There were only 3 school in the whole system.)
SHE'd been bitten by the travel bug after spending her Junior year in Germany, and was curious about Australia. Australia was importing teachers at the time. So SHE came here and was a classroom teacher for a long time. (To pay for her travels and scotties) Then it was time for a change. So she went back to Uni and became an Itinerant Teacher for integrated Blind Children.
We suppose that means some of her special skills include reading and writing braille.
SHE is now retired; but works as a casual (substitute) teacher at a small local school--only one grade each of k-yr6.
In addition to travelling, SHE loves to read...anything...and has recently acquired a Kindle because we ran out of book shelves. SHE has tried many crafts, but loses interest once SHE can do them.....quilting, beading, porcelain doll making, reborns, knitting, pottery, hat making......quite a list. SHE also loves going to the theatre and having coffee with friends.
We just love her....whether it's walking, snuggling, riding in the car, helping with jobs around the house. We're always near...especially when cooking. And SHE just loves us! Everyone says we're spoilt.
SHE has a wicked, Monty Python-type sense of humour. And SHE loves the absurdities of life.
She hates being in front of the camera more than we do!
So this is the only picture of her we could find.
SHE does really have a head everyone.
