Now, don’t pity me–boring is comfortable. It does, however, make it difficult to think of things to tell about myself. So here are a few less-than-serious things that might not send you to sleep on the spot. If you’re interested, read on. If not, be thankful browsers come with “back” buttons.
The great event took place in Eugene, Oregon, where people rust instead of tanning. I currently live in Colorado Springs, where people fry instead of tanning. (We average 250 sunny days a year. Drop in and bring your sunscreen.)
I’ve been married to the best man in the world (who just keeps getting better) since 1979. Dennis and I met at BYU, got married, had kids… and that’s when my real education started. We have four children, and now the baby is all grown up.My earliest musical training included watching Lawrence Welk with my grandmother, and listening to her practice on the accordion.
Grandpa used to sing me to sleep accompanied by his banjo. Quite a cultured heritage I’ve got! (Yes, I was born in black and white. Cameras had just been invented.)
