Stuff that matters~family, friends, faith.

Stuff that don’t~designer stuff, the latest, coolest anything. Who decides that anyway?

Favorites~a good song, a good drink, a good back rub.

Totally unfavorites~arrogance & hatred, liars and "dig me's", people that pee on the seat. I hate that!

About work~
I am so very fortunate to work in radio, and I work with some really great people. Who wouldn’t love playin’ music and talkin’ all day for a livin’?

When it comes to music, for me it’s really all about the song. Bluegrass, old time gospel and country. Stuff by Hank, Merle, Patsy and Willie. I dig Johnny Cash and Radney Foster, Asleep at the Wheel, Keith Urban and Lee Ann Womack, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church and Possum Holler.

Music has been a part of my life since I was a little girl and, I have my beautiful parents to thank for that. I hope the pure, emotionally raw joy I get out of singing, writing and performing is obvious.

There’s nothing like sitting outside in the early morning, on a peachy summer day, listening to the birds sing, and takin’ in the sweet summer smell of lilac, honeysuckle and wisteria.

There’s nothin’ like the hugs I get from my kids.

Because nothing, nothing means more to me than the people I love. 

I sincerely hope that I’m an inspiration and a blessing to others. So many have been that for me.

Be an organ donor
Be enthusiastic.
Be compassionate.
Be the difference.

I knew it was going to be hard to say goodbye but, as my final day at WAYZ approaches I am finding that a simple seven letter word is turning out to be much more difficult than I could ever have imagined.

They say that if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life. With the exception of those two weeks I spent scrubbing tubs at a bath house, I have truly never worked. I’ve waited tables, sang with a band (Possum Holler), mastered the art of the curly q on an ice cream cone and, I’ve loved everything about working at 104.7 WAYZ; meeting people, making friends, talkin’ and playin’ music for a living. What an amazing opportunity. Everyone should be so lucky.

When I sign off on Friday, I’ll tuck my headphones away and, find a place on my sofa with a good book and lots of blankets. I am hoping to experience some healing of sorts; gaining strength and, perhaps a few pounds. Part of me thinks that my battle against scleroderma is just beginning. Am I just a little bit frightened? Yes, I am. Maybe more than a little; but, I am armed with faith and hope. I am ready to rage against this rare, killer disease. And, that is just one more great opportunity.

I take with me many cherished moments and will hold so many of you in my heart forever. Thank you for being a part of my journey. And remember~

To the world you might be just one person but, to one person, you might be the world. Wishin’ ya blue skies and happy trails.
