I love my pets, 3 mini dachshunds & 2 cats. I've had a variety of different animals as pets in the past, but dogs & cats are my favorites. I also love visiting zoos and nature parks when we travel. My husband & I have two grown daughters, one in college, one married and works in healthcare. We enjoy going to the lake, boating, swimming and have a pool in our yard that we enjoy in the summer. I am an avid sci-fi lover and collect Star Trek memorabilla. I know I sound like a teen age geek, just fell in love with the series when I was a kid and I love the science and optimisim of it. Like classic rock, along with current rock & pop, not the hard stuff. I still enjoy going to concerts when they are at the local zoo ampitheater.
