About Me:

Married in March, 2005 in Kona Hawaii, my husband and I still consider ourselves newlyweds! We are owned by 2 Somali cats and a Ruddy Abyssinian, all former champions in the show ring.   A former radio DJ, I spend my free time collecting antique radios and making new contacts on ham radio, and also enjoy traveling (Hawaii, Costa Rica or anywhere exotic), geocaching, birding, practicing karate, music trivia, playing the flute and recorder and of course, READING!

Available Notes:

My availables will either be wild released, set loose at my local OBCZ, or a few may be traded on; for others, I'm just waiting for the right time and place for a special release. PLEASE NOTE: I am not interested in doing any trades at the present time.

Bookrings/rays/boxes Joined:

Bookring/ray books will be given top reading priority. I am usually able to read and mail them on within a couple weeks.
