I am a "domestic engineer" at present.  I have worked 20+ years in the nursery and garden business.  Everything from retail/customer service to landscape design was my job.  I am a graduate from college with an MFA (master fine arts), and have an MRE (master religious education).  

I no longer work outside the home.  I cared for an ailing mother and uncle several years.  I have Multiple Sclerosis.  When I'm not spinning (fiber), painting (watercolor) or attempting to learn banjo songs, I'm doing the housewifely thing.

I am a confessional Lutheran.

I love to chat, and I love my cat.

Greetings from Vermont Fluidpaint and welcome to the site. Lots of chatters here - look for Oliver on the chat line who I affectionately call 007 for some reason. Bad instruments don't help much, glad you lucked out on that McSpadden. Can't go wrong with those. Have fun here - I paint too, and with watercolors. Sure hope you post some of your pics.

Hi Fluidpaint, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer.  It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.
