Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I don't flat-pick and pretty much play *at* the guitar (I play a few songs well and that's it) -- I'm more the "music lover" who listens to those who CAN play with a happy smile on my face and a foot that can't stop tapping. :^)

A bit about me.... I'm a grandmother who loves life! Especially friends and family, ALL KINDS of music and sharing new music discoveries with others (believe it or not, I have a 60 gig iPod that is FULL :^); I watch sports from football and bullriding to gymnastics and figure skating (LOVE the Olympics!); I also enjoy reading (King, Koontz, Crichton, Rob't Jordon, and any good mystery/suspense/horror/fantasy); then there's the movies, theater, nature, animals (especially horses, cats, and dogs), gardening, watching the many birds who stop by en route to the nearby bird sanctuary, learning, travel, new experiences!, history, AND I love to design and make jewelry (see pix below), using mostly stones like jasper, agate, quartz, etc. (but Swarovsky is nice too!) - and I really enjoy sculpting with clay.

I used to be very active -- riding and training horses, hiking, biking, dancing, etc. -- but after being hit head-on by a wayward pickup :^), I am now retired on disability. I can no longer do much of what I loved to do before -- but there are plenty of quieter pursuits to keep me busy!

I live with my dog, Sunny -- a half border-collie, half golden retriever/some-kind-of-husky mix -- she's a great companion! I lost my cat recently but will soon get another; and then the household will be complete again. Am thinking about getting a miniature horse some day too since I can't ride any longer -- wouldn't that be great?!

My landlady and good friend Linda lives in the main house on the property (I live in the guest house) and Paul, another good friend, rents a room from her. Between us, we have four dogs -- my Sunny, who I already described; Yukon - a Samoyed; Annie - an Australian Cattle Dog; and Chiqui - a Chihuahua who thinks she's a big dog too. All are rescues. :^)

Linda and I often have coffee in the morning and make jewelry, and the three of us like to cook meals together and play cards or board games afterwards with a nice after-dinner cocktail.

I have a son and daughter I talk to as often as possible. Unfortunately, my daughter and grandkids live nearly 3000 miles away, so I don't get to see them as often as I'd like. My son lives in Mexico so I don't see him too often either. But! We all keep in close contact by phone and text (I wouldn't be able to communicate with my grandkids at all if I didn't have texting! lol! ) Luckily, my Dad lives nearby and I visit him as often as possible....

So, all in all? Life is GOOD! :^)

By the way, if you send me a message or email, please know that I don't get online very often, so it might be a while before I get back to you.... :^)
