What hobby would you get into if time and money weren’t an issue? Woodworking or furniture restoration. I love to wander farm auctions and estate sales and look at the beautiful dressers, bed frames, trunks and other furniture from the past. Oh, to have a house to fit all the antiques of my dreams…
What would be your ideal way to spend the weekend? Coffee with friends, then settle in at home with a good book, go out for a nice dinner with friends or family to end the evening.
Where is the most interesting place you’ve been? What’s the last adventure you went on? I’ve been to Ireland twice. Absolutely Wonderful! I ‘d go back in a heartbeat.
What have you created that you are most proud of? I am the mother of two very beautiful and talented young women who are doing wonderful things in their lives. They are beautiful for the generous, caring, compassionate, altruistic individuals they have grown into.
When was the most inappropriate time you busted out in laughter? I have laughed at funerals; and I always seem to bust out in laughter at the movies when no one else is seeing the humor that I do. To the point of embarrassing my family who sit next to me at the movies.
