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.

Noble of the Mystic Shrine

Douglas became a member of the Masonic Lodge in 1972 and later the Akdar Shrine while we lived in Tulsa, Oklahoma. While we were in Okinawa, he became a member of the Aloha Shrine. Shriners do a multitude of good deeds, but, are known to love their parties. We dressed in our formal best for a wonderful dinner and dance one night there in Okinawa. These guys in their fez's gathered in a circle and sang "their" song, "Tiny Bubbles". To see Douglas laugh and have so much fun was an amazing sight to behold !!
