Hi my name is Edith and I'm a native Washingtonian transplanted to NE Texas. My husband and I met when he was in the U.S. Navy and stationed in Washington state. We've lived all over the country (Alaska, Florida, Puerto Rico, Tennessee, Texas and Washington), but after he retired from the Navy we stayed in Washington state. But he always wanted to retire in Texas - his home - and so here we are!
We have been married for 38 years, we have two sons, ages 36 and 35. My oldest son lives in South Korea and teaches English there, my youngest son is a low voltage electrician and lives in Bremerton, WA. My husband is currently working at Red River Army Depot and will retire in about three years - I am retired and am an avid birdwatcher, gardener and genealogist. And I love photography. I've had a camera in my hand since I was 7 years old and am now on my 2nd digital camera - I love the 24X zoom so I can get close-ups of my birds!
We are living in the country which is a totally new experience for me - I have always lived in the city and now I have cows for neighbors and the lady across the street has horses and llamas. There are 14 pecan trees in my yard and not much else.
