Middle aged. Considered by many to be reasonably intelligent and above average at satire and humor. But honestly, it depends a lot on who you ask. My guiding principle in life is irreverence. Otherwise, it’s hard to be funny because a lot of stuff is off limits.
As I was wandering through life minding my own business, I got breast cancer. Not fun, but I got a book out of it and then went back to doing my whole life thing. Problem is, I was just getting back in my groove when I was hit with a kind of serious chronic lung disease. Sheesh. I still have my mojo! But I’m trying to adjust to life in the slow lane. Not my typical speed but left with no other choice, well, I’m just going to stick my head all the way out the window and pant and hope I look as cute as a dog.
I have a lot of random musings and think you might even be interested in them. If you find yourself giggling (don’t hold back!) you should immediately buy my book!
I have been married since 1988 to my college sweetheart Dan. He is an amazing man and I still can’t figure out why he puts up with me, but he will probably snap one day and smother me with a pillow. No one, including me, will be surprised.
I am happily Childfree but that doesn’t mean I don’t like kids; I just never had the overwhelming desire to take responsibility for an entire human being for 18+ years. I’m the doting aunt of a niece and two nephews, all of whom are now young adults, and in my humble opinion the most talented and interesting people I’ve ever known. They also help me stay current on the latest slang so I can go on with my bad self.
We have 4 cats in our home, which is surely twice as many cats as anyone really needs. We adore them all: Jack, Janet, Chrissy and Mrs. Helen Roper (but her friends just call her Helen.)

If Witty Banter was a career, I would finally know what to do with my life. The filter between my brain and my mouth is occasionally leaky. I am fiercely loyal. I am a master of sarcasm, and if eye rolling was an Olympic sport, I’d take the gold. I try to do the right thing even when no one is looking. I believe deeply in human rights, animal rights, and the empowerment of women all over the world. Except the ones who get on my nerves. Don’t judge.
Thanks for dropping by!
