I am Merry, I am outgoing, friendly, and a very hard worker, (that's part of my problem, I have a tendency to overdo at everything from the computer to cleaning, to shopping), well, you get the idea. I also have chronic pain problems. I have severe arthritis and mild emphasema, (no I do not smoke, but I did when I was young and stupid.) Of all the things I am I think my sensitivity to other's needs, and my loyalty to my friends are my best qualities. My high school sweetheart and I have been married for 47 years, and we have a son who is 46, married and the a journalist. He and his wife live about 3 hours away. They have a darling son, our grandson Jack (Jonathan David; and on Jan. 2, 2009, their family had a new addition, Joseph Russell. My husband retired Jan 15, 2009. So, a new page is turning in our book of life. Come visit me and leave me a pic if you have one, and if this supports a book for readers to sign in at, (I am new to Blogger) Please leave me your name. I love making new friends!
