I am a retired CPA — auditor and tax accountant — living on the Great Frozen Tundra of n.w. Wisconsin, a former elected public official, an occasional librarian, pet owner, mother of two grown sons, wife of a retired nurse, and (I like to think) all-around good egg . I knit, read, play word games with my husband, read blogs, pet the animals, and volunteer in lots of ways. Sometimes I cook and inevitably think, I used to do this every night! Sometimes I garden and think, Damn, I need a new back. But I always remind myself, Life is good.
