My name is Vicki. I grew up in Columbus, Ohio and am now living in Florida. I’ve also lived in Monterey, California and in the early ’80’s and loved loved loved living there!
I lost my husband Henry on in 2015. Eight months later I lost my babydog Patches, who I’d had for 18 years. Those losses were the hardest thing I’ve ever had to go through.
My children are Jeremy, Anthony, & Kilah. Jeremy is married to Susie, Kilah is married to Harley. I also have 4 grandkids, Arianna, Jordan, Alecia, and Harley and a great granddaugther, Jensen.
I have 2 cats and a dog. Boots was rescued in 2009 when she was just 8 weeks old. She was a loner for years but now she wants head and back rubs. She sits with me for a while just about every day.
I adopted a puppy mill survivor who I named Kaiyo on January 13th, ’16. Kaiyo is adorable and has learned that not everyone will abuse her. It took a while, but she’s happy and healthy now. Together we helped each other heal.
Then there’s Jaspurr, a kitten that was abandoned in a field. I was going to find her a forever home whe she was weened, but after weeks of bottle feeding her every few hours, she was mine.
I fell in love with books the second my mom read “Are You My Mother?” by P. D. Eastman to me. I loved the story, and I loved the cover, and I’ve been a cover snob ever since.
Any time spent with family is a blessing!
