I identify myself differently for different people. I was a psychologist, am now retired ... I am a mother, a grandmother, and have been a cat breeder, a rodent breeder (all kinds) and a dog trainer ... also a professional gardener, a teacher/tutor, a professional carpet cleaner, the owner of several 'small businesses' including the most expensive housekeeping business in an 'expensive' city to live in. I'm also friendly but don't invite people 'over' to my house, I'm happily married to a man who is also my best friend, partner, lover, and playmate. I'm older, younger, fatter, thinner ... than others, depending. I have 'serious heart disease' and severe rheumatoid arthritis, plus other health problems, but am also 'healthier' than most people. I'm mostly Irish, a bit Welsh, have a 'very French' last name but am married to a man who is only 'half French' with Scot, Irish, and English blood ... and mostly I am 'long winded' but write well enough that most people find reading things I write with great interest ... especially my 'love stories' (all of which are 'true' even when they seem 'very different' according to what I am saying). I am ME!
