I am a retired nurse practitioner with 38 years in the medical profession (i.e. the majority of my adult life). Currently, I write a lot, am busier with writing for various magazines online and babysitting homes and dogs, a perennial laugh track, vaca, and a little extra change. My hubby is also retired! Yikes, now you know why I love vacations... haha. We've lived in Southern Oregon for many, many years (many), with grown kids and grandkids. Watching them from wee ones to six-foot-plus, putting this short granny a neck ache looking up. We do whatever we can to have fun and improve our aging brains.
