I'm very busy raising an eight year old grandson who has cerebral palsy and is blind in one eye.
I'm editing several novels and have completed two illustrated poetry books. Currently I'm looking for interested publishers.
Would love to keep in touch with everyone who enjoys my poetry but there is never enough time. If you'd like updates on what's going on, you'll find it here.

Have finished getting Doogie's suitcase packed for camp. We'll leave early and, hopefully, return sometime tomorrow--around eleven o'clock (he doesn't check in until 6pm). It will be his first time away from us. Guess I'm more scared than he is.
Lately Doogie's vision has been truly bad--can't always see color anymore. Possibly it's due to the oil in his eyes clouding up since he has no pain.
Finished my biography for "Who's Who Among American Women 2004-5". They will review it and then contact me ONLY if they ACTUALLY put me into the book. At least I tried :)!
Also am very busy trying to get a publisher for "A Touch of the West" plus submitting poems and stories to other publications.
Love hearing from you all. Do keep in touch.
A group of senior citizens were sitting around talking about their ailments: "My arms are so weak I can hardly hold this cup of coffee," said one.
"Yes, I know. My cataracts are so bad I can't even see my coffee," replied another.
"I can't turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck," said a third, to which several nodded weakly in agreement.
"My blood pressure pills make me dizzy," another went on.
"I guess that's the price we pay for getting old," winced an old man as he shook his head.
Then there was a short moment of silence...
"Well, it's not that bad," said one woman cheerfully. "Thank goodness we can still drive!"
