Profile image

My husband Monte and I live in a gated community near the town of Jasper GA, about 65 miles north of Atlanta. We are both retired from Georgia Tech. I don't have children but he has two children and two grandchildren. We have 5 cats (we lost one of our favorites a couple of weeks ago--he was 17). 1-1/2 live indoors (the one that's indoors all the time is a Katrina rescue); the rest are outdoors all the time (because they don't behave nicely in the house). We lost my mother on January 24, 2010. She was 103 years, 5 months old. She lived with us for five years, bedridden for the last three. She was truly an amazing person, not because she lived so long, but because she lived so well. She had the wonderful trait of accepting the changes in her life without complaint and handling whatever life dealt her. I never once heard her complain about being bedridden and unable to leave her room. Instead, she relished the sun on her face and enjoyed seeing birds and trees and flowers from her window. She liked to play games and read, though towards the end she couldn't do that anymore. She was a people person, and was lonely some of the time, but sadly that was partly because she didn't always remember that she had had a visitor, which she often did. She didn't have Alzheimer's or dementia, but her short-term memory was not good and she often forgot what did or did not just happen. She was an inspiration and role model to many people--especially me--and will be greatly missed. When asked the secret of her longevity, we often said "chocolate." My niece suggested that people should honor her memory by eating a piece of chocolate--please join us!

Hi Nancy, how wonderful that you still have your mother and that you take care of her. I just lost my mom in July, and I'd give anything just to have a bit more time with her. I do not have children, either, but I have 3 nephews and my puppy to keep me occupied. See you on the board!

Hi Nancy,
I enjoyed reading your profile - we have so much in common.
I teach at Grafton Technical College which is part of the North Coast Insitute. I don't have any children either and I am a devoted cat lover; my cats were called - Monty, Grey, Smokey, Gremlin and Myos. After working in Sydney for 15 years I moved back to Grafton NSW to look after my mum. I, too love word games - its almost like looking in a mirror!
Cu you on the board.
Cheers from Greycat/Caroline

Hi Greycat. I love your ID picture. My cats are Alfalfa, Syeri, Pudge, Ferlie, Bitsy and Mocha. Mocha was rescued from Hurricane Katrina and has some health problems but is a beautiful sweet animal.

Thanks for being my new friend! The reason for the taco name is this (maybe I should put this in my profile)--my nephew came up with the idea of a taco dog (combination of taco and hot dog). He was a very good boggler and eventually several members of our family formed a boggle team called team taco dog which we still play on WordSplay. We keep the name in his memory--he died of mesothelioma in 2006--in his 40s with 2 young children. ned is my initials (Nancy E. Davis).
