I'm a retired executive secretary.  I am married with two grown daughters and four grandsons.  I've always enjoyed writing, reading, music, art, and movies.  I'm very fond of cats and now have a 17 year old cat named Regina. I grew up with parakeets and had them off and on during my life.  I've been a Type 1 diabetic for over 50 years and would eventually like to share my experiences growing up with the disorder.  I look forward to writing more on Hubpages.
