it's just me,

born in memphis, tennessee, moved to southern fifty two years when i married'i am seventy years old and not sure how i got here

raised two kids , have four grandchildren, mostly grown and two great granddaughters.

i live alone. in 1996, my husband was shot to death by my ex husband. it has been a hard 12 years. i witnessed the murder and had to be in court to tell what happened. he got 29 to life. he is now 74 and has only done 12 years.
i have pstd because of it. am doing fairly well now but it was very very hard

it made me realize life can be very short. so i don't sweat the small stuff any more. it takes a lot to make me mad.

i love to cook for my kids and grandkids. the two youngest don't have teeth yet. lol

i do a lot of decorating in my little mobil home. not so little actually.

did not mean to bring anyone down with my story, but it did happen to me and molded me into the person i am today.

i love this site and feel u are all my friends.

babe
