I love to read mysteries and I love to hang out with family and friends. I have one dog, three cats,one snake and a rescued Box Turtle. His shell was cracked and he cannot be released into the wild. He was glued back together with super glue! His name is Dash..Go figure, of course the kids named him. He gets along very well and has taught a lot of children about Box Turtles. My hubby is a fourth grade teacher and I have two daughters.
