Proudest Moments of My Life: When I became a grandparent. “Mother was right”.

Things I Would Like My Classmates to Know: I’m still kicking! Absolutely love retirement, living in the country, sleeping later than 5 in the morning. Reading a good book on the porch is great. After my two girls came, we started a farm of animals that my husband and girls would bring home, because they had no home. We are down to 6 cats now. Our back yard is a graveyard for the dogs, cats, etc. As my grandchildren say, “Miss Piggy Sue, Lucky Ducky, cats, dogs, owls, deer and snakes are in Animal Heaven.”
