What a great idea Lynda, now we won't have to do a new post everytime someone new joins!
Welcome Maria, it's nice to have someone else from the tri state area around....My cousin is a D'Angelo too!
My name is Mickey and like Bev and Dianne I too am in the 47 club....but I won't claim it for 23 more days....I am still 46 and I am hanging on to it until the very last second
I am a Native Brooklyn Girl who migrated first, to the Pocono's then, 8 years ago to Richmond Va....Yeah I'm the real life "My Cousin Vinny" . After all those lovely storms and tons of snow I had enough and moved down here to escape to a place where the city shuts down if they forecast flurries (Oh and forget about getting milk and bread...they buy it up w/in an hour of the forecast!
When we first moved here it was to run our own business (3 fast food franchises), however the economy started hitting the wholesale side of things way sooner than the rest of the country and we sold out 3 years ago. I was very blessed that we had the foresight and doubley (don't know if that is a word )so in that I landed a position w/JCP in a career change for me as an interior decorator in thier Custom dept. I love my job and while it is rough going in these economic times I think I will be able to ride out the storm.
I too will be celebrating 21 years of marriage this year to my dh Mike and have the light of my life in my 16 soon to be 17 yr old Son Michael (as you can see Italian's are very inventive w/naming their children ).
I am a die hard romance reader since my teens....need HEA and this is the only venue where it's guaranteed. I stumbled onto Phantom Waltz a couple of years back and fell in love with this amazing writer CA in looking for more from her I found Annie's Song and that was it for me. I was a die hard dedicated fan. A little over two years ago I was looking for info on the next Coulter book and stumbled on this board. I have been a member ever since and have made some of my closest friends on here. It is still so weird to say that, I have these wonderful friends all over the world whom I've never met, but I know their hearts and I love them all.
