My husband and I have been married for 37 years (obviously I was a child bride), and much to our surprise our son arrived nearly 18 years later! We live in southwest Idaho, Boise to be exact, we are nearly natives, my family arrived in 1948 when I was a babe in arms, and my husband’s family arived in the 1860’s, but then he has always been the older one!

Boise is home, we always come back, but along the way we have lived in Washington, California, and Nevada. My husband is a civil engineer, and I am a professional crafter, for 14 years now.

Our son is in the Navy, we periodically burst our buttons with pride! He is stateside, although his next duty will take him to sea. He is in aviation electronics, specifically the FA-18 Super Hornet, which is a little Idaho boy’s dream-come-true.

I have been lurking here for way too long, since shortly after 9-11, when my heart was breaking for our country, and the rest of my heart was with my son in Navy boot camp. What happened to me after that is a story too long for this place!

Thank you all for keeping me sane for this time in my life, and also making my husband say "what are you laughing at" when I am on here in the evenings.

I live in: United States

My zone is: 6 sw Id
