Some people might wonder why Jack often gets the parenthesis around his name or initial. That’s because Glenda does the writing and Jack gives many of the suggestions. Instead of him being a ghost author he’s a ghost suggestion person.
Back to the subject at hand, ABOUT Glenda and Jack–
It seems hard to write an about page since you learn so much about us by reading the posts. We’ve had a truly blessed marriage that I never dreamed I could be so fortunate to have. When I say things like that it implies 24/7 for over 40 years has been perfect. Of course, it hasn’t, but it’s what you do with negative times in a marriage that counts. You can’t even have two kittens, two puppies, or two of anything who are going to get along perfectly 100% of the time, let alone a man and a woman. Men and women do not think alike, but that’s part of the intrigue that you don’t want a clone of yourself.
We met when we were juniors in college. I was a speech and English major–yeah, really dull. It implies studiousness, but that wasn’t a good description of me. I was sort of looking for my own road. Thankfully, after a number of years, I did mature–still had fun though but I matured. Plus, I consider all experiences part of the repertoire of life.
Jack describes himself as a Redneck, hippy, with a Bachelor’s degree in art who ended up working in the natural gas industry for almost 40 years.
I realize Redneck and hippy hardly seem like they belong in the same sentence but actually, that description is pretty authentic for him. That’s probably what’s made our marriage so fun.
We’ve had a wonderful family of two kids who are grown now with their own great families. We call our son’s family the Ocean Family because they are about 5 blocks from the ocean in California. We call our daughter’s family the Mountain Family because they are as close to the base of the Colorado Rockies as you can get. Oh, and we call ourselves the Desert Family because we are in the hottest part of the Arizona desert. So, no matter what climate we’re in the mood for, we can visit it and stay free of charge–at least our kids haven’t started charging us rent as of yet.
Please leave comments on some of the blogs to tell us about you. We’d love to hear from you!
Glenda and Jack ♥
