Nickname: My teenage children call me "Jo".
Hair: Brown with some grey
Location: Louisiana - Northwest corner - Bossier City
Age: 40 something
Hobbies: I don't think I have any real hobbies at this time, because I have been in survival mode for the past decade or so. I have been sick for a few years, but for the past week or so things seem to be looking up for me. I really enjoy spending time with my family and my sweet black lab dog! I used to like to go fishing and camping, so maybe I will do that for a hobby.
Relationship Status: Married for over 21 years to a guy that was my high school sweetheart!
Fav Music: It has been so long since I have had control of the radio dial that I don't really know. I guess it will have to be 70's and 80's music because I know the words. Also, Christian music is cool to me.
Education: BA and M.Ed. in Elementary Education grades 1-8, MA in Counseling, several post graduate science courses for teachers, Nationally Board Certified Teacher in Science ages 11-14.
Work: Retired after teaching/counseling for 20 years, but I am looking for something to do after the next year or so. Right now I am "taking care" of a family that that lost their home in New Orleans to the hurricane. This family of six people (and 3 dogs) now lives next door in a house that we own. I had never met them before, but instantly think of them as family, yet I don't even know their last name. Some people are amazed that we would become involved with complete strangers, but they aren't strangers. They are my daughter's boyfriend's mother's relative's friends, and now they are my friends, too. There are three generations ranging in age from mid 80's to 13 years old.
Favorite Food: Well...my screen name is KHZblue because I was once called a blue whale as I was swimming in our community pool. The middle school student also informed me that the blue whale is the largest mammal...so I guess lots of foods are my favorite.
Favorite Movies: Funny Romantic Adventures
Favorite TV Shows: Well, my cell phone alarm is programmed to alert me to be sure to watch Desparate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy. I also like Everybody Loves Raymond
Favorite Video Games: PacMan and Tetris are the last ones I played.
Stuff you Dislike: People that are unkind to each other or think they are better than someone else, Cancer (my Mom just passed away from colon cancer)
