Profile Information

born and raised in Spamtown but left that many years ago
About Me:
ForMysteryAddict (4MA) listmember

Adding to my profile because my life has very recently changed.

For the last four years, I had been the primary caregiver, medical advocate for my husband of 40+ years. He was a cardiac patient with severe COPD (on oxygen 24/7) and toward the end he was dx with a reoccurance of Hairy Cell Leukemia (HCL).

Very recently widowed. By accident, not his health. Still in mourning period. And my life has completely and totally changed. The best way I can describe it as topsy turvy. Am now living with my oldest son and kind a nomad for a while, for at least a year. Then maybe I can make a decision about where I want to settle and near which kid.

Still involved with the American Lung Association as a former caretaker for a person with severe COPD.

And wondering where and what and when I will go on with my life now.
I Am A:
Books And Authors I Like:
too many to remember especailly since I am all over the map on who and what I read.

Reads, everything in sight.
Have at least two books going at the same time, but different genres. Will read a mystery and SF or SFF at same time, and sometimes a cosy, hard boiled and SFF.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
Still favor the older muscials and comedies.
Don't want to list fav TV shows, 'cause then they are hexed and cancelled.

Your crimespace Box

I'm a member of 4MA (ForMysteryAddicts)

The Apple...?

I've been hearing from some, not many, that their computers are having problems with crimespace. Not sure what they are using, computer wise or access. Tales of crashing, etc. while accessing crimespace.

Yesterday morning, I was on the apple imac, reading the forums. Toodling along on crimespace and all of a sudden, everything froze. Cursor would move, but I couldn't click on anything.

With windows XP, this has happened, but never like it was with 98. But the apple? What… Continue

meet up

this last Saturday, myself, Barbara Fister and Kathy Hagen(from our 4MA group) met up in Minneapolis for some serious book buying and converstation. Think those were equal projects.

Kathy and I are also in the same f2f monthly mystery discussion group, and we had that meeting first, discussing James Sallis' Moth.

Barb came to Minneapolis to visit her daughter, and it turned out that her daughter now lives only a couple of blocks from me. (one the better neighborhoods in Mpls,… Continue

Glad you to know that after the changed course, you have come to an even keel. Smooth sailing from now on!

Lucky, and blessed, are you. Unfortunately, I'm rarely at running streams these days so I don't know when I'll have a change to search again.
