I live in a little country town in the northern part of SC. Both of my sons are in the Army and I'm havng to get used to cooking for 3 (according to when they are home) now instead of 4. I love to read, draw, paint, fish and anything that is outdoors. My biggest pet peeve is someone "smacking" and blowing their nose when they eat and eating with their mouth open. I have two beautiful black cats, Harry and Crazy Daisy. Yes, you read that right, she's crazy, I am retired from the local Trauma Center where I worked in the ER as an EMT for 10 years A knee injury my down fall. A lot of the easy to ship recipes I make and send over sea to some soldiers and they rave at how good "they" were.
