About Me

I have been happily married for 40 years. My husband retired from GM after working there for 36 years. He is now working part-time at a local GM dealership as a shuttle driver. It is the perfect job for him. He doesn't mind driving and for sure he doesn't mind talking. I have enjoyed rubber stamping for about 10 years. I can tell you that I do not do scrapbooking just cardmaking. I love it. I retired from the University of Michigan in 1997 after working there for 30 years. Most of the time I worked in the Mathematics Dept. At this point, you can say I wonder how she liked it. My mom told me if I couldn't say something nice to someone don't say anything at all. I will comply and not go into a huge dissertation about how awful my bosses were during that period. I did like my office mate, Dee Hudock. We worked very well together. I can also say for the most part I liked the professors. I have two grown children and 3 grandchildren. I am totally addicted to FB and all the games I play there.

A Very Tired Friday Night

I haven't written for a while. I have managed to stay busy. I wonder sometimes how I had time to work, keep a household running, and take care of my kids. I got the family calendar done for next year. Now that I have that done and the Thanksgiving cards done for Joy I can concentrate on my Christmas cards. I have the things I need ordered. It is suppose to be in on Monday. I sure hope so. I also need to get some b'day cards done too. My dad's birthday is the 13th. He will be 84. My folks 62nd anniversary is on Nov 28. Wow can you imagine. That sounds like forever.

I got a frantic phone call from a friend tonight. She had locked her keys in her car and needed help to get in to the car. It was late she had a hard day at work. She was frustrated as you can imagine. We went to Ann Arbor, found her, called AAA and they got her into her car in less than 5 min. I am glad we were able to help her.

I have a funny story to tell about some election signs. My DH worked for GM for many years. His nickname was Speck. There were a couple of his friends that called him that. A couple of weeks before the election my husband awoke, got ready for work and found this planted in front of the house. It came from Taylor. We think we know who did it. A certain friend that shall remain nameless lives near Taylor. He knew that Dennis was known as "Speck" at work. We thought it was pretty funny. It brought us a few chuckles and of course our friend denied it.

Now an even funnier part. A couple of days later we had some politicians knock on the door. They were asking for our support for Pope for judge. We had the "Speck" for judge sign in the house at that point. The "Pope" for judge was at least in the correct location when they place it in the front yard with our permission. Our son had been out that day and when he came home underneath his arm was the "Pope" sign. He wanted to know if it was a joke again. "Oh no" was our reply go put it back.
