Teaching was my passion--in the classroom I always felt at home and happy

Yes, flying! Although under the direction of my ex-husband I still really enjoyed it. My other passion was racing stock cars. My Father got me started with his old banged up car and I drove the "powder puff" class. I always loved "the need for speed!"

I am passionate about my exercise. Nothing daring like these wonderful women. I go to my gym almost daily. I do a 5K organized run every Thursday and I do many of the special runs for different organizations in town. I would love to participate in 10K’s and other marathons but time will tell! I also walk my sweet beagle almost daily!

I am and have always been passionate about reading. I’m always amazed by people who never or rarely read books, since this is something I can’t even begin to imagine. And I’m concerned about the future of literacy in our country, since in order to succeed at just about anything, you need to READ!

Reading and learning are my passions. Well, of course my children, cats, dogs and donkey are too!
