I returned to school and received my bachelor’s degree at 50 in information technology. I was raised in Texas. I married 32 years ago and have lived in the same rural town, same road, ever since. I have 3 children. My husband is a farmer. I enjoy horses, writing, technology, serving others, children, grandchildren, all animals (except snakes) and . . .the good sense to know that a healthy mind and spirit pave the way to good things. My philosophy is “Keep on Truckin’—Perseverance is a virtue.
