I went septic in May 2005 due to diverticulitis. They removed my colon for a variety of reasons. Colitis & Chron's disease to name just a few.

Was happily married to my best friend of 25 years until Dec.9th 2008 when her breast cancer that was in submission for 6 years spread to her lungs.

She has been gone for almost 4 years. Bought a house in Frederick Maryland to get closer to Frederick Memorial Hospital and my work. I love where I live. But I really miss my best friend. She can never be replaced but I don't think I will be alone forever, At least I hope not! I miss those weekends going to yard sales flea markets and antique browsing.

I am the eldest of eight. But they have there own lives in Baltimore and Pennsylvania.(I know I am rambling!)

Go Ravens! Go Orioles!

I love to cook !
Hope to hear from some of you.
I rescued a dog two years ago! Nice dog!

I have a girlfriend. She is from the bayous of Louisiana. She does not have a problem with the bag. She says "we all have scars"!

I was very up front about my appliance...
So don't be afraid of someone not understanding.

Every time I change by bag I hear James Brown singing "Papa's got a brand new bag"...Hey !

Yeah! I still have a sense of humor.

I have 2 step-children, and then... five grand children a great grand daughter and a great grand son and a great grand daughter on the way. They are in Houston Texas and Jacksonville Florida. One grandson is a Marine and one just joined the Navy and another is in the Army.

Peace, Love and understanding!
