Where are we?

Thank you for inviting me

Thanks so much for inviting me to be a part of this blog.

I'm 62 and looking for my first Social Security payment at the end of August. For now, I'm investing the money. Jim's still going to be working for the foreseeable future, so we figured I could actually come out with MORE $$$ by taking the benefit now and investing it in a combination of ROTH and regular IRA's. Cool!

I've been knitting for about four years and have, recently, started to learn to spin (well, sort of).

I have one husband who's a psychologist at Southwestern Virginia Mental Health Institute here in Marion. We have one son, John, who's 32 and a graphic designer. We have two parakeets, Skittles and Poppyseed, and a semi-wild cat, Jasper, who actually tells US how things are going to be.

I'm involved in a KAL at Mosaic Yarn Shop in Blacksburg of the Central Park Hoodie. I've almost finished the back.

Welcome! We're so happy you've decided to join us ... you live in one of my favorite parts of Virginia - Marion! I have stayed at Hungry Mother State Park several summers with my family and friends.

Welcome neighbor! I'm three mountains over from you in the "toe" of Thompson Valley...the Cove section where Lassie was filmed.
