Being with family, especially my hubby Keith.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE PASTIME (HOBBY)?
Bicycling, reading and playing with my foster kittens.

Being in deep water with no life jacket – my doggy paddling is not too good!

No celebrities, but I would like to have known more about my deceased father and his life in California.
Thank you Carolyn, for all you do for the GTHS and our animals!
