Exotic Pets Editor for Exotic Pets at BellaOnline.com
I figured with two passions, one writing and the other exotic pets I might as well merge the two together. I was with Bellaonline from 2000 to 2006 life became too involved for a while, thankfully they let me come back.
This is I not winning an argument he took my pastry and would not give it back; too many calories anyway.
I am thrilled to have everything together again, to be back at Epinions with full heart. Being disabled myself and taking care my folks, and mother-in-law was difficult. I loved my folks and miss them dearly.
I am a mother, a wife, a grandmother, a writer, an exotic pet consulant, a painter, and appreciate every living moment of my life. I lost my mother a few days ago; I lost my father in December, my brother a short time ago, and a son at fifteen. Don't put off a single "I love you."
My granddaughter Tori - two-years old. Expecting granddaughter number two in five weeks.
I have a severe disability that doesn't slow me down. Well, maybe my body is going to slow me down, but not my mind, imagination, or my ability to enjoy life. I have had a couple different types of cancers; one was breast cancer resulting in a double radical mastectomy. Don't put anything off, ever. Losing my family has had a profound influence on the way I see the world around me. I put up a brick wall around me when my son died; very few people have managed to get through that barrier. The barrier has gotten stronger and stronger with each death- with my mother's death I am afraid this wall is crumbling. I have to deal with this to be able to fully FEEL again.
My passion is exotic pets and animals in general. I have been a wildlife rehabilitator and now am a consultant primarily in behavioral problems in birds, but deal with a lot of exotic pet situations.
My husband George, (the two-legged one) I love this picture, It reminds us all how precious life is.
Epinions I love but also believe has made a profound difference in the way the public shops. We no longer have to depend on advertisements glorifying products or services, we now have Epinions an assemblage of people who have used the actual products and services and can offer their experience and opinions offered in a compilation of these collected works since 1999.
We moved to Huron, South Dakota almost four years ago now. The time has gone so fast.
