About Me

Since Aug 2006

Lives in Salem, Oregon

50-64 year old female

ArtistJames is actually my husband. He does the art, I do the writing. We like to go travel to artsy places that he can paint and I can write about. I speak just enough Spanish to get us off the beaten path and into trouble. Our best trips take us into homes of local famiiles we know from exchange student programs; we like to see how the Real People live and spend time with them on their turf. We have three grown/nearly grown kids, but only one traveler among them. Her Spanish is better than mine but she's not a brave talker like me. She did try to talk her way into our 25th wedding anniversary trip but that got her a no.
