I am a retired elementary teacher. My hobbies are riding horses, hiking, swimming, traveling, dancing, and spending time with family and friends. I love Lake Powell, and spend time each summer exploring with family and friends. I have always loved writing, and plan to write stories and articles. I am working on my story at this time. This week I am having two knee replacements, so I will be devoting one hundred percent of my time to setting goals and working to restore my legs to normal activities. I have had surgery on both knees, so I'm familiar with this path. I also love computers. I can remember when I used type on my Royal typewriter. I have seen a lot of changes, and look back over time at all the incredible experiences that make up my life.
