Although Lindsay doesn’t have children, yet, she does have my granddog, Fergie, who is loved and spoiled! Our youngest daughter, Catie, graduated from Madill High School in 2018. Catie is working full-time, and she has recently moved out on her own. She had her roommate have a 30 pound cat named Willie – he loves ham!
Although, I am from the Los Angeles, California, area – I grew up in Whittier, California, and I went to high school and college there – I have lived in Oklahoma for 19 years, and I consider it my home.
We have six dogs – five of them are rescued dogs. We have two pugs, Scarlett and Bonnie, a Chihuahua, Lupita Consuelo Pfaff de Lopez, a basset hound, Molly, a mixed-breed named Shelby, and a mixed-bree named Jessie.
My hobbies are reading, traveling, swimming, going out on the lake in our boat, and spending time with my family, friends , and pets. I love visiting new places --especially book stores and museums!
