Interests

Regardless of how long I am gone from or how old I get, I remain a "farm girl" from South Dakota. I still like to watch various farm report shows early in the morning on weekends when I can. I am an avid fan of country gospel quartet music and a rabid fan of the Gaithers Homecoming Series. Vestal Goodman (of the Happy Goodmans) remains one of my heroes. I love animals of all kinds and share my house with a cat with whom I actually believe I can communicate!
