My husband has suffered 4 strokes, but is still functioning. We are raising a 13 year old granddaughter. We have 9 total grandkids.
Mark spent 30 years in the IT field. Since his strokes he likes to spend his time helping with various Food Pantries. And since I work for the Food Bank, I guess this is a family passion. Mark also gathers used computer equipment and uses parts to build working machines to give to food pantries and other non-profits that need one.
We are originally from Northeast Arkansas... where the mosquitos grow to be giants down around the rice fields. But we were young married when we moved to the Tulsa, OK area. We spent most of our years raising our children in the small town of Owasso, just outside of Tulsa. We have seen it grow from one small Walmart to a huge selection of shopping and restaurants. There isn't much that you would need that you can't find here now. We just don't have a good bookstore.
Working on getting a new one...I think we have decided at our age a small motorhome will be best. Since we have one child living with us, we prefer to have bunks. We really like the Winnebago Vista 35B. Our former rig was a 1997 Jayco Designer 5th Wheel that was destroyed from a blowout.
