    Dwezel is doing a tour right now using Franks music. He was just interviewed on our local WNPR station. Very cool! I love Frank.

    I lived in Dolgeville for about a year. The cold would make the beams crack and sound like they were exploding in the attic. Great for snow shoeing. Summer would fing us dipping our toes in the icy cold water in the spring house to keep cool.

    I used to work at Erlanger too! Actually I worked for TC Thompson, but pretty much the same thing.

    I was born in SW Virginia, but when I was 10 or 11 my family moved to FL. After 3 years, we moved to central Virginia. After graduating high school, I moved to Bowling Green, KY for college. I met my ex-husband there, and after graduation, we moved to Douglasville, GA for a year. For a lot of reasons, we moved back to KY. A few years after that, we moved to Chattanooga, TN, where we lived for almost 7 years. We split up in 2008 and in 2009, I moved to central MA. In 2010, I got a job in western MA and moved to Sunderland, where I've been ever since. I really love this part of the state, but I'm trying to convince my boyfriend to move back down south.

    Off the subject but did you steal my dog, Scoobie Doo? :D

    I can't get over how much your beauty reminds me of my dearest . She is the smartest dog I ever knew :D

    She had a broken jaw when she was born. Couldn't be fixed and her lower jaw never grew to fit her size. Her tonge hung out from her mouth and slapped her in the face when she tried to lick anything. ha ha. I love her dearly.

    I was born in Gadsden, Alabama. We moved to Oak Ridge, Tennessee, when I was just a baby. I have lived in Tennessee all my life. I grew up in Lenoir City, TN, then moved back to Oak Ridge when I got married. We moved to our lake house when our son went to college. We now live in Ten Mile, TN, on Watts Bar Lake. Beautiful area of the country and a wonderful way of life. My sewing room downstairs looks out on this beautiful lake. Life is good.

    Thanks so much. I was in my livingroom looking out the door. There is a family of six semi-wild escaped peacocks that live with the wild turkeys . They wonder around the neighborhood and take handouts. One of their favorite roosting places is in the huge oak tree right over the house. Turkeys and peacocks. What a sight! I love them

    Grew up in the Panhandle of Texas. Got married and my husband joined the Army before getting drafted. In 21 years in the Army we spent 13 over seas and only one time did I like someplace longer than 18 -24 months. Got really good at packing and unpacking. Have lived in El Paso for 21 years and love the wonderful weather ( except this summer).
