About Me

Haircut 7-15 copyKnitting, reading, writing, and expressing my inner sass one blog post at a time.  I’m an empty nester who retired from a collegiate library job where I did the interlibrary loans for students and faculty.  In my previous life, I was an Army television broadcaster in Germany and then an officer in the Navy for many years. My husband is a retired Naval officer who is now a contractor working with the military.  I have a wonderful daughter and son-in-law who work in biomedical research and development and a wonderful son and daughter-in-law who live simply amongst the urban poor as they seek to love and serve them in all facets of their lives. My grandmother taught me how to knit and sew when I was a young girl and I taught myself to crochet in college. I’ve been a fiberholic ever since, adding quilting, spinning, and recently, rug hooking to my list of enjoyments along the way.  My life’s delightfully askew with the addition of  five young grandchildren, two granddogs, a grandcat, a rescued dog named “Toto”, and an incorrigible imagination. We recently realized a long-time dream to move to the great state of Texas, moving just a few minutes away from one set of grandchildren. Now if we could just get our other child to move out west, that would be the icing on the cake.  Life is good!

    Is it possible to get a CD or copies of the Graf descendant pictures from you?

      Hi Eleanor,
      Just curious…..can you tell me what your interest is in them? At any rate, I have most of those Graf pics and many more up on my Flickr pages. Here is a link to them. http://www.flickr.com/photos/readndee/sets/72157622028263879/

      I believe it is set up in such a way that you can right-click and then copy them onto your computer.

    I didn’t know how else to ask you this. You bought these 3/4 length orthotics a while back on Amazon and said that it helped your Morton’s Neuroma. Do you leave out the foot bed that comes with your shoe and just insert the orthotics or do you put the orthotics in by them selves?
    I’m at philiplevine@earthlink.net

      I put the orthotics right on top of the foot bed in the shoes. The orthotics are thin enough that it doesn’t seem to bother me or cause my feet to feel too cramped doing it this way.
