My Favorite Song:
Hold Me...Thrill Me
By Mel Carter.

I was born in Kane,Illinois...My parents
were Lydle (Bill) and Mary Mowrey. I
have two (2) sisters and three (3) brothers.
Donna...Peggy...Gary...Jerry (Twin) and
Larry (Twin). We are a very close family.
On 18 November, 1987, I married the
love of my life, Bill Emery. He passed
away 13 February, 1987. No children,
but lots of cats:))).
I worked for Olin Corporation, the world
manufacturer for Winchester and Super X
ammunition. Worked for them for almost
30 years. Now I am a lady of leisure.
My hobbies are: Crocheting, Camping, collecting
Beanie Babies, collecting Lead Crystal Bells and
of course the computer. Most of my time being
spent on the computer.
I have  a new 36 foot travel trailer that I keep
parked in a private campground, 2000 Model,
in Shelbyville, Illinois. It is about 100 miles
from my house, just far enough to think you
are going someplace, but yet not that far to
drive. I spend a lot of weekends there during
the summer months. My site faces the Kaskaskia
River. It is a mini home away from home with
all the luxuries. Great place to relax and to get
away from the everyday hustle and bustle of
everyday life.
