My Photo
Location: Las Vegas, Nevada, United States

I retired in 2005 after dealing blackjack and roulette in Las Vegas casinos for almost 20 years. I have one daughter and one grand-daughter who introduced me to altered art after my retirement. I was born in Iowa and grew up on a farm. I began the Memoirs of a Wildrose blog in the form of letters to my daughter to share information with her about family heirlooms and family history, plus remembrances of today, yesterday and yesteryear ! "Book of Douglas" blog is the story of my late husband, his life as I knew him, and our journey through life together. Ginny's Art blog was created to provide myself a record of my artsy creations.

The first page of the book is decicated to Douglas' heritage -- Douglas at about 1 year of age, and Paul and Ruth , his parents wedding picture appear at the bottom of the page. Clarence and Minnie Rose, maternal grand-parents, Burt and Lottie Johnson, paternal grandparents at their 50th wedding anniversary party at the top. Center left, Minnie, with her grown children, Ruth, Earl, Ada and Paul. Center right, Burt and Lottie with their grown children, Paul and Evelyn. As I looked through this book today, I thought of many things I could have done differently throughout the pages, but, it is what it is, and it always conjures up more memories each time I leaf through it. Never a day goes by that I do not think of Douglas.
