Georgia gal married to Dick Wallace ‘69. Hats I have worn during my life: military spouse, mother to an extraordinary daughter and son, grandmother to our own fab 5, high school teacher, volunteer coordinator, small group facilitator, cross country storyteller, caregiver to parents, “night nurse” to family newborns, European dweller, 24 time mover and “ghost buster” to grandchildren’s nightmares (and Dick’s). Other important and useless facts: I love exploring small towns, being a backroad vagabond, eating French food and hearing the language, and reading well-written anything. I have enviable hair (inherited) and am a 4-and ½ star cook. You can fact check that with previous guests. Finally, thank you to thedaysforward.com for making me a “published” writer!
