I am married to the most wonderful man who I've known more years than I have not! We recently celebrated our 41 years of marriage. Our oldest son is our business partner. We farm in Mexico, growing papaya, honeydew and person-size watermelon. We travel back and forth to Mexico to take care of our business. This son is married and has two children. He lives in Mexico to oversee the business. Our middle son works for Clinical Pathology Lab. His wife is a doctor and recently opened her cosmetic dermatology clinic in Houston. Our youngest son is a realtor in McAllen, Texas, near where we live. He loves his work and his business is steadily growing. We lived in Mexico for three years to get our farming operation going. It was an exciting time for us! My hobbies are genealogy, home decorating and cooking. I love blogging! I am so very blessed to have a loving family... not only the family my husband and I created, but also my family of friends. Fall and winter months are when I enjoy blogging the most. Seasons change and I love keeping up with the change in my home. I have had some amazing experiences with my faith in Christ and I truly feel that God is always with me. I try to live my life the way God would have me live it.
My Godchild wrote on her blog today about her husband taking their little girl fishing with a "real" fishing pole. It reminded me of my father taking my sister and me fishing with him. There were no cute fishing poles for children in those days so my father would cut a stalk of cane, add a long piece of kite string to it, tie a huge safety pin to it and ... now if you have a delicate system you might not want to read this part... hook a horned toad to it. (Actually we called them "horny toads".) My father had figured out that if he kept us busy then he could fish in peace... for awhile. We never caught anything but we were amazed at how quickly the horned toad went to horned toad heaven. I was probably five and my sister was four. Glad our two brother came along later so my father had some fishing buddies.
