dog-mom, horse servant and cat-slave,
Lover of solitude
and the company of good friends,
New places, new ideas
and old wisdom.
With my first two words as a new member of the Stiletto Gang, I have given away that I am a Southern girl. Okay, I am . . . um . . . a bit past the dictionary definition of “girl,” but where I’m from, we are still girls no matter our age.
I never thought I’d be a member of a Stiletto Gang, as I never met a pair of high heels I didn’t run from, but here I am. There is much in my life I never thought I would be or do, such as becoming a police officer after graduating college. Actually, it was an accident (that lasted over two decades), but that is a post for another day. Today, I am introducing myself.
So here are some “fun facts” about me:
I’m a 4th degree black belt in the martial art of Aikido.
At age 8, I won a ribbon for being stubborn.
I dove the Great Blue Hole in Belize, the largest sea hole in the world.
As a rookie police officer, I had to devise a different way to hold a gun because my hands were too small.
I once had an M-16 rifle pointed at me while researching a book.
Frogs make me smile.
