I guess I'm now a bit past middle age..not sure when that happened ! I was an original member of the Dazed & Confused from Austin 1974. I love my family , I have raised 4 sons and one has given me a very energetic granddaughter. I enjoy designing and selling jewelry and I guess I am what you would call a professional amateur photographer. I've been dabbling in the world of writing . Kind of a self therapy type of thing but with the encouragement of some pretty awesome Q members I have started my first blog. A very alien world for me so just have patience, I'm getting the hang of it. Feel free to visit it at hchallenged.wordpress.com . I've not been writing as much lately as we bought a house, moved and are settling in . My mother passed away this weekend and now there is much to take care of . Ty for all your kind words and prayers. My biggest interests in submitting ideas on Q is to improve quality of life and to make the world safer than it was yesterday.
