When she gets older she has told many of us that she just wants to be able to continue to drop off artwork at a gallery space even till she's 80 years old.

The simple life is more attractive to her, gardening, yard work, walking the family dog to gathering good medicine in the woods, or hanging with her sage women in a drumming circle. The joys of Nature are the best gifts along with sharing it with her life partner Randy-A.K.A the Husband.

Loving the Gray, I use to dye my hair some what in High School but I never was one that like to keep that up so when the gray started to come in, I welcomed it.

Gracie, (Lou Freebush) or Gracie (Lou McGoo)

She's my left side companion, in walking, by my side at the kitchen table and next to our bed. Rescued at 3 1/2months old, now almost 5 years old, she's a Bloodhound/Lab.

We love her dearly.
