Congratulations! Best of luck in 2012.
Here are the seven things you might not know about me:
1. I have lived in Arizona since March 1971.
2. I retired from the U. S. Navy in January 1971 after 21 years service.
3. I began writing when I was about 70 years old.
4. I attended the University of Utah but never graduated. I tried out for UofU's basketball team, but was too old, too slow, bad shot, couldn't dribble, and threw the ball away. And this year it looks like they are having the same problems.
5. I had one brother who retired from the Army and another retired from the Marine Corps, and two others who were in the Army in WWII.
6. So far I have collected 20 rejections.
7. I like Mexican food, German food, fried taters and gravy, Southern cooking, French cooking, Kansas cooking, Spanish cooking, my Mom's (may she rest in peace) homemade bread with butter and honey, and the Riverside Restaurant on the island of Mauritius.
Good luck and have a fabulous 2012.
