When I have to think of "favorites" in any category, there are so many that it's hard to make choices. I love to read - especially mysteries by women authors, but I also enjoy some of James Patterson's books, all of those written by Anne Rivers Siddons, Robert B Parker and the late Philip R. Craig; I enjoy writing-primarily poetry. Volunteer work - as in Women's Clubs and Hereditary Societies - is high on my priority list. I have served as recording secretary for many different organizations, and president of others. I enjoy working in the yard, especially with my riding mower.
