NOTE: In light of the events in this country on September 11, 2001, subsequent events and being a military family, I felt it prudent to remove photos of my family members.
My Husband's name is Marvin. A U.S. Navy Captain
in the Supply Corps. Currently his career brings us to Nebraska. Nebraska !!??!! Yes, there is Navy in Nebraska. When Marvin gets lonesome for the sea, he thinks about
floating a boat in the Missouri River. :-) No, just kidding. So far he has 24+ years in the Navy, and it doesn't look like they are going to be getting rid of him any time
soon. We've been married 16+ years and still having fun. I admire his tenacity and his intelligence. And he has great tastes - He married me, didn't he? :-)
Together Marvin and I have six
daughters between us...a his, hers and ours thingie. The younger three are still at home, and the girls I homeschool. Our daughters are Karen, Briana, and Danielle, Jessica (married to David - they have one daughter), Jillian, and Rebekah (Beki) (married to Mike - they have one son).
My Momma, Barbara, is
from South Carolina. She stayed at home for about thirty years and
held the family together during Daddy's sea tours and his
retirement, the moves,...then went back to school to earn a degree
in nursing. She's a pediatric nurse. I think a lot of her expertise
comes from having five children. She had three boys and two girls. I
did have one complaint being the second oldest and my sister being
the baby...that she took so long to have another girl.
After Daddy died, Momma married a very nice
man, Robert (Skip). He's just as sweet as honey. Very loving and
caring to us, and loves Momma. They like the same things, do
just about everything together, and have both retired now and
travelling. I hope they are very happy together.
Now my siblings: My
older brother, Edwin, is probably the biggest sportsman in the
family. He's been hunting since he was eight years old. He has a
special lady in his life named Gaye. We all think a lot of her,
cause she can put up with things we never could. :-) He also owns
and operates a forestry company out of Raleigh, North Carolina: Timber Marketing &
Management of the Carolinas, Inc.. Anything to stay "in the
My next brother, Bruce,
is a police officer and a VERY GOOD one, too! He likes to fish more
than hunt, I think. He has three daughters and one son.
Guess he wasn't always patrolling, huh? :-)
The last brother is
Kenneth..(Now Edwin has a little competition there...) He's big
sportsman, too. He's also the only blonde in my sibling
The last sibling is my
little sister, Cynthia. She's an elementary school teacher. And
loves it! She's married to a nice man, Tommy, and has two
