About Me


To meet wonderful people!


I advocate for abused and neglected children as a CASA, and I enjoy reading, studying and hiking. My husband Carl is an excellent cook.


Family and friends, getting to know people, traveling, writing, conversation, nonfiction and poetry, museums, Kandinsky, making the most of living with cacti, javelinas and birds.

I am married, with children and grandchildren (not living with me), and I have two cats.

We offer a queen size bed in a private bedroom. You will be able to get a good night's sleep!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have been arrested for organ harvesting in Nigeria and spent some time in a third world jail (I wasn't actually harvesting human organs for sale in America. Long story....).
