Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I was born into a family of 12 kids (3 girls, 9 boys), mother, father and a grandmother. I grew up in a small community of only about 150 people where fishing, family and church mattered most.
What other interests or hobbies do you have (other than Eliters of course)?
Darts and I love painting, not pictures but walls, lol. I also enjoy reading, walking and spending time with my sons.
How did you learn about Eliters and when did you join?
I learned about Eliters from Purce who blackmailed me into joining about 5 years ago, lol.
How did you pick your Eliters' Name - does it have any special significance?
I was trying to come up with a name and I was staring out my window.. and all I could see was the ocean. Actually, the tu at the end was a typo!
Tell us something unique or interesting about yourself that we are unlikely to know
My mom died when I was very young, so I pretty much took over running the household and caring for my dad and siblings. I continued to take care of my dad until he passed. Taking care of people seems to be what I do best.
What makes Eliters special?
The td's and the great people who play here. I can always count on someone to make me laugh at the end of a long day.
What is your absolute favorite game - and who taught you to play?
My favorite game is canasta - I was taught by some guy in a previous league. Actually, he taught us gin too
What games do you play? Are there any other games you would like to try?
Well cribbage of course, also gin, canasta and doms.
Do you currently hold any position in Eliters? Is there any other particular position you might be interested in?
I am an AGL in Criby, and I am more than happy with that position.
What is your proudest achievement in life?
My two sons - Eric and Josh.
What is the most important thing for you in tournament play?
Same thing as in life - being a good sport and treating everyone with respect.
If you had one wish what would it be?
To have my mom back, she died when I was 18 and I still miss her every day.
If you could use one sentence to describe the way you feel about Eliters, to a prospective new player, what would it be?
Joining Eliters is like having a whole other family!
What is the most memorable experience that you have had as a TD or a player, online or at a live event?
Finishing the final game in a huge darts tournament. I was awesome!
What is the funniest thing that has happened to you since joining Eliters?
I have had so many laughs here, I honestly can't pick out a single event. However, speaking of laughs - if anyone needs to hear some great jokes, just ask for me in criby. Even though I have been forbidden to tell jokes...
If you could be one person for a day, who would you be and why?
Although I have lots of dreams and wishes, I guess I will settle for just living my own life as best I can. Although, it would be nice to be able to do it in a warm climate next to a pool with some room service involved.
You are given five minutes to evacuate your house, the kids and pets are safe - which three items would you grab?
Photos, purse and car keys.

Singing to the radio, although I can't sing to save my life.
Name your three favorite movies.
Sixth Sense, Not without my Daughter, Kiss the Girls!
Do you have any particular heroes?
My mom who raised 12 kids on nothing and still managed to be a great person.
What is your guiltiest pleasure?
Window shopping. I don't need to buy stuff, I just like to walk forever and look.
When I grow up I want to be just like:
I' 5 foot tall - I'm never going to grow up now.
Any last words for our readers?
It is a pleasure playing with and knowing you all. On my darkest days I come in here and you bring a smile to my face so thank you all for that.
