Hi everyone--I live in Louisiana but am originally from Texas (where my heart still is). I am married to the most wonderful man in the world, and we have three great grown children. Two girls ages 23 and 19 and a son age 22. I work as a social worker with infants with special needs. My husband is a pipefitter and works away from home, so I home alone a lot. The two youngest kids still live on my property in guest houses. I have been a prepper for about 15 years. I love to quilt, garden and can. We have a boxer, siberian huskie, and my special baby, a yorkie. We also have several cats and lots of almost tame racoons and squirrels. I have been a lurker here for a very long time, but finally decided it was time to join.
