"My husband, John, and I live on a lake, just a mile from the Pacific Ocean, so we enjoy boating, fishing, beach combing, clam digging and kite flying. We like to bicycle around the peninsula, which is just 6 miles long, and we're members of the Fresh Waterways organization. I also substitute teach at the elementary school."
"I've never entered a cooking contest, even though I've probably been reading Taste of Home since it first came out. I love cooking for my family when they visit, and especially love to bake. We have five grown children and eight (soon to be nine!) grandchildren."
