    Hello, @Carol Cook , and welcome to the forum ! We are all looking forward to getting to know you as well.
    I am an Idaho country girl, now transplanted and living in the city in Alabama.
    I love the longer gardening times here, and you will often find me posting in the gardening threads.
    What kinds of things do you like ? Any pets ?
    There are a bunch of wonderful people here, and we are all friendly, and come from all over the world, or at least several different parts of the world.
    Just jump in and join the conversations where ever you feel like !

    Hi... I love gardening also.. And looking forward to getting started.. but it's still too cold here in the Midwest. Yes, I do love animals and have quite a few.. 4 doggies and 5 cats.. I also love to cook, and I'm afraid hubby and I have indulged way too much. We are now on Weight Watchers and it's been a real challenge making tasty meals without our point allotment. Thank you for asking..

    Thank you all very much for the warm welcome.. Not much to tell about me. I'm 67 years old.. and I have two grown sons and three grandkids. They are both married and live in suburbs of Chicago. I have been married to the same wonderful man for 49 years!! I live in a small Northwestern, Illinois town called Freeport.. in Stephenson County... also known as "Pretzel City" because of the large German population here. In fact the mascot of the High school is a pretzel. I have recently retired but when I worked I was in the billing department of the local hospital. I love animals and have lots of dogs and cats.. I love to cook... so that is where my last name came from. I also garden... both veggies and flowers.. That's about all I can think of off the top of my head.
