OK, so I like to play with the PC. Was life like a Fairy Tale? Almost!

I would have to blend a few tales together for you to understand my path since 1968.

I’m blessed and I am thankful for each day. I do try to enjoy myself and not take life too seriously.
I am married to Fonzi Armstrong, a Delta Farm Boy from Bolivar County. We share a blended family from our past lives. We retired in 1995 from a BBQ business and moved to Knoxville, TN.

I loved living in the mountains. I find it hard to find anything as pretty as the Smokey Mountains during Dogwood Season. Well, maybe the Fall Colors that Dolly sings about runs a close second. While in TN we turned our love for antiques and collectibles into a great business. Yep, our hobby ran over and had to resort to selling them. I met and remained friends with many “Antiquers” with the same appreciation of “turn of the century” quality heirlooms and hand me downs.
Here I am with my sisters at a Gathering at Ginger’s home in May 08.

Remember, I have a twin sister Ginger and younger sister Crystal. I also have 3 brothers, Ernie, Tony and Jack. Family is what I’m all about. I have 3 Precious children and 6 Grandchildren.
If you don’t ask I won’t have to tell!! In 100 years no one will care who wore the balloons. After several winter vacations in Melbourne, FL we decided to make the Big Move. I learned from the Flamingos and Senior Lifestyle of “Party because you don’t have to Work”. Wham…then I learned all about Hurricanes and the Weather Channel! I moved to Pensacola to get closer to kids back in the Delta, seems Katrina and Dennis found me. So go for the memories and enjoy every day to the fullest. Let me hear from you.

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, one hand full of Cheetoes, a margarita in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOOO what a ride!"
