Introducing . . .

It appears that the proverbial cat is out of the bag, at long last. It seems that this week everyone has finally found out that Rick and I are a couple, one way or another.

I told my family and friends over the last few days. My kids have known since about 2 weeks after we started seeing each other. His family and friends have known for some time, I guess nearly from the beginning. And our bosses approached us today to let us know that they know (but not in such nice terms). We've also been letting some of our coworkers know over time.

So for those of you who haven't yet met Rick, here he is.

He's a total computer geek, although he's reigned it in lately, down to only 3 computers in his home. Photography has been a long time interest of Rick's. He rides a Harley whenever the weather and mood suits him. He spent 6 years in the service after graduating from Auburn high school, serving in Turkey and Italy in communications. Boeing was his employer for about 5 years and he's been working at LaCroix for 5 1/2 years. He's a native Washingtonian, specifically to this very area, Auburn and Algona. He's gonna hate the picture I put with this blog but it's just his handsome face, sorry babe. Rick's about 7 months older than me, which is so cool, we have all the same memories of TV and music, clothes, etc, at the same age. He has a 17 year old daughter living here in Auburn with her mom and a grown son with 2 babies in California. He has a great sense of humor and was even given a local award for the funniest employee in the area, that's while he was working at Boeing.

Of course there's much more to him than just that but for now I'll keep it at that.

Oh yeah, he's crazy about me and I'm crazy about him.

Gawrsh... (pretends to blush) I'm somebody now!

About Me

My photo
After 2 unsuccessful marriages I spent 12 years as a divorcee, only to fall prey to another man's wiles. We had a fun 5 years together and then he decided he wanted more freedom so once again I'm single.

So I'm freshly divorced at 57 and have 5 great kids and now 7 grandkids. My kids are still a major part of my life but I'm busy helping my aging parents on Kauai.

I've lived in California, Hawaii and Oklahoma before finally settling here in Washington. I love Washington and come back to visit family, friends and take care of my garden often but will be temporarily a resident of Kauai.

I've moved 30 times in my life (no, my parents weren't in the service, at least not since I was about 2) and finally planted roots when I got my little house that I've owned since '91.

My family are Jehovah's Witnesses, I've been one since '72.
