I am four years divorced from an 18 year marriage and haven't re-entered the dating scene. Not sure I remember how. I have a wonderful son and two wonderful granddaughters who are talented, smart and beautiful. (Not that I am biased) I am a Florida girl, relocated to Georgia to be near my son. My parents are still in Florida and I am blessed to have them still in my life. My mother was an international knit designer whom I modeled for several years ago. She is one to look up to. She started the Veteran's Cemetery in Jacksonville, FL, is in several clubs with the Daughter's of the American Revolution and volunteers weekly at the cemetery. We always spent our summers in the Keys (Islamorada) at my grandparents' resort. The Keys are so beautiful. I learned the hard way not to pick up the pretty coral (fire coral which emits poison for protection). The blue water is unlike any other and the fish are beautiful. Remember spending weekends on the boat. Loved it. Never afraid of sharks for some reason. Have a brother who has been deaf since birth. He is the most talkative deaf person alive. He has excelled and has become a certified marine engine mechanic for Johnson, Mercury and Evinrude. My older brother is an electrical engineer and graduate of the Rambling Wreck of Georgia Tech. I am a retired certified paralegal studying at University of North Florida. I spent 40+ years in law and loved being able to help people in times when it seemed their lives were falling apart. I have been in all types of law except Criminal. Could not justify representing criminals. I love life, though I have been bored since I moved to this small town. I stay busy and happy. I love working in the yard and garden, animals and nature. I live on three acres which I have yet to explore. Scared of ticks. I enjoy anything on the water and used to be pretty darn good at knee boarding (hydro sliding). Kept my tosh and thighs in shape. LOL I love the mountain but miss my beach in Florida. I love waterfalls, rainbows, mountains, animals, and life in general. I live by the Bible and it has made me into the person I am today. I am not a prude, but I do have morals. I am intelligent and like a stimulating conversation. Today has been full of Christmas wrapping. The girls came home from school and were so surprised to see all the packages under the tree. Of course, there was the checking of names and shaking of boxes. Will be a good Christmas. I know that you have to be best friends for love to blossom. I also know that when it is time for love to re-enter my life, God will have my path cross with Prince Charming. I am patient and content until that happens. To all how read this, hope you have a wonderful and safe Holiday!

Christmas is wrapped and under the tree.  Granddaughters get more anxious each day when they see more presents and must inspect the names and shake them.  Will be time to make Christmas cookies and goodies Monday.  Look out kitchen, here we come! I think the girls enjoy that as much as presents.  And I know my son, their dad, does.  He is the taste tester.  I see flour everywhere coming.  To all, have a wonder Christmas and Holiday.

Thanks for the uplifting replies to my blog.  I have thought of the fact I might be able to help people wrongfully convicted.  However, with a financial offer that seemed too good to be true, the attorney offering me the job asked if I had a problem with representing MANUEL NORIEGA, a high profile drug lord.  At the time, my son was in middle school and head of "Just Say No to Drugs" and that made my decision to decline powerful, although in the mid 80's 90,000 per years was a lot of money to walk away from.  I did so with an inner knowledge that I was doing the correct thing.  How could I explain it to my son?  I couldn't.  And a criminal can get off by opposing counsel missing filing a document by one day.  Nope, right decision for me.

I like your blog. What a fantastic introduction of yourself to us! Please do feel free to join us in the blogs...I have been away for a while, but just checking in now to see what I've missed.

 

I agree with your comment about not being able to justify representing criminals - but did you ever think of the invaluable pleasure of representing a falsely accused individual and proving their innocence? It is immensely rewarding....truly!

 

Liv.

Warmest wishes to you Debra.  You sound like a wonderful person.  A lot of us that hang around the blogs have become rather passive in our search for our Prince(ss) Charming, but we do like to engage in conversations about a wide variety of topics....some politically correct..and some not so much.  *wink*  We would be most pleased for you to join us if you care to share your words.
