What is an interesting factoid about yourself? At 77, I swam with dolphins at the Dolphin Research Center in Grassy Key, Fla. It was on my bucket list, and thanks to my two sons – one paid for it, and the other drove me down there – it was a joint effort Christmas present.
Anything else? I sang “Happy Trails to You” for Roy Rogers for our 25th wedding anniversary in Victorville, Calif.
