Let's Get Acquainted!
In recent months, we've had several new members join us here in the Hippeastrum Forum. So we all can learn a little bit about each other, and get acquainted, as it were... I'd like to suggest doing again what Cindee started over a year ago! She began a "Who Are You?" thread, and it was a huge hit! We all had fun and learned a little about our fellow posters!
So... everyone find a photo they don't mind sharing, and in a 100 words or less, tell us a little bit about yourself! What part of the world are you in? What are your hobbies? Tell us about your family and pets! Or anything you'd like to share!
I'll start... although, I don't have current photo as of today, so I'll see about getting one taken.
I'm a 48 year old stepmother of 3, grandmother of 3, married to a fabulous Hippeastrum/Orchid enabler! I live in Central Illinois, in the middle of corn country!
My hobbies include collecting and growing Amaryllids, roses, and gardening of any kind... jewelry design, flower arranging, and consuming chocolate!
My husband and I are semi-retired canine breeders, and we currently have only one pair of Olde Bulldogges, Huck and Maia. Quite a switch from a full yard of over 40 American Bulldogs and Oldies!
I'm a confirmed coffee-holic, and I'm up all hours of the day and night. I have Lupus, and both my husband and myself are partially disabled... he, from an industrial accident, and myself from a fairly recent auto accident.
Life has been filled with ups and downs for us, but one of my main sources of joy is coming here to share my Hippis with my Hippi friends!
