I'm just an old dog trying to learn some new tricks! If it weren't for our son, the computer whiz, you wouldn't hear about me at all. He is trying to bring his mother into the 90s with some semblance of intelligence and dignity!
For the past 14 yrs. I was fully involved with my teaching career, most of which was spent with first and second graders. Even though I loved every bit of it I found little time to get involved with much of anything else. Also, after suffering a couple physical setbacks, I found myself burning out. I saw this logo and thought, "That's exactly how I feel, all chewed and finished up!"
Jim, my husband of 41 years, and I have embarked on a new adventure. After school was out in June, we moved to our present location and are enjoying establishing our new home on our beautiful 23 acres of forest and field. More about that on another page.
I was born in Marshfield, Wisconsin. I attended school in the following cities: Phoenix, Arizona, Tacoma, Washington, Santa Ana & Fullerton, California. After our children were married I attend Southern Oregon College, now Southern Oregon State College, in Ashland, Oregon. So, if you ever went to school with Ramona Crase or Ramona Blackburn I would love to hear from you.
Bright colors, mostly in the reds, pinks & purples with accents of green are my favorites. Italian food and desserts for every meal would be my dream! Sacred and classical music refresh my soul, especially if it is a bit grandiose! River rafting, and any kind of flying excite me. Children humble and teach me. Nature makes me reflect and think. My family loves and puts up with me! God saves me!
That's it in a nutshell and probably more than anyone cared to know!
