Ann Kaiser Wallis is the name I generally go by, though my first name is actually Elizabeth (used most often at doctors' offices). I'm 56 years old, originally from Evansville, Indiana, a retired electrical designer/engineer, married to Wal (short for Walter), who is 70, a retired mathematics professor at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. We frequently travel internationally, most often to Australia because Wal is originally from Sydney. We keep homes in Carbondale, IL and Evansville, IN, at least for the present: it is convenient to have more than one home only if one has staff. We have two cats who are resistant to travel. We have grandchildren in Sydney (ages 16 and 18) and in Evansville (ages 6 and 4 months). I like to cook, knit, garden, do photography, Sodoku and crosswords, and read too much political stuff. Wal writes textbooks, teaches a distance-learning class, reads voraciously, does Sodoku and crosswords. We are both addicted to playing a scrabble-like game with (website hidden) friends on our IPADS and are avid movie buffs.
