What can I say?  My picture above shows you that I have lived a long time.  It was taken in 2008 for our church registry. 

I was a stay at home mom until my last child was in school.  I was widowed when I was forty four and was glad that I was already employed at the local radio station.  I stayed in the same job for thirty years and after I retired at 65 and took a trip to Europe with a friend, I started working again and stayed for another ten years.  I have only been writing poetry since 1999 when I wrote to relieve my grief when my only son died.  I married again four years after my husband died and was widowed again in 1995.  I am an avid gardener and belong to two local garden clubs and am on the board of the district club and state garden club so have lots of meetings to attend. I have my own poetry corner in the state garden club's publication. I live in my home by myself and rent my farm land to a local bulb grower.  I am surrounded by beauty.  All of mv family lives close to me.  Two daughters, six grandchildren,
eleven great grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren. We live in Washington State in Northwest Washington and love it here.

Any football fans out there?  I just came back from A Superbowl party, watching the Seahawks win.  I wrote a poem yesterday about them and today I'll have to write another verse.  They won so big!!! Joyce

    Passionate Seahawks fan. Lived in Denver area for 35 years. Left just before their Superbowl wins. This time, they returned to their old ways by doing great until the big game. The Hawks endured to the end. Like a stable family, they stuck together.

    Thank you. I was with my daughter's family and the young folks are so gung-ho. We each consider ourselves one of the 12th man group.
