Tell us a little bit about yourself - your hobbies; interests; passions in life.

Love to play with my kids (even tho 2 of them have moved out) and grandson. Love to work on cars, watch NASCAR and football (except the Super Bowl this year), oh yeah, and ELITERS.

How did you learn about Eliters and when did you join?

My cousin and her husband were TD's in Spady and I joined on 4/12/04.

How did you pick your Eliters' Name - does it have any special significance?

My current name is because I love the Arizona Cardinals football team. I even have a tattoo of the cardinal on my chest.

Tell us something unique or interesting about yourself that we are unlikely to know?

I have 26 tattoos and they all have a special meaning.

What makes Eliters special?

We are a fun and family orientated gaming site.

What games do you play? Are there any other games you would like to give a try?

I play backgammon, hearts, spades, euchre, gin, dominoes, pool, bowling, cribbage, holdem, yahtzee and I would love to learn pinochle on here because I can play it face to face.

What is your absolute favorite game - and who taught you to play?

Backgammon and my dad.

Do you currently hold any position in Eliters? Is there any particular position in which you might be interested?

HA in HeartY, GL in SpadY and HTD in BackgammonY. None that I can think of at this moment.

What is your proudest achievement in life?

My 4 children and my grandson.

What is the most important thing for you in tournament play?

Fair play and having fun because it is only a game.

If you could offer one suggestion to improve Eliters; what would it be?

I guess it would be to have proof of something before drastic measures are taken.

If you had one wish; what would it be?

To be able to have a house with a yard for my dogs to run around in.

If you could use one sentence to describe the way you feel about Eliters to a prospective new player; what would it be?

We are a fun and family orientated gaming site.

What is the most memorable experience that you have had as a TD or a player; online or at a live event?

Making it to the finals of the TOC in SpadY and then loosing it. I don't think I have joined a TOC in SpadY since that game.

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you since joining Eliters?

Talking about "the silver bullet" in SpadY with Marie (Luxy), Paul (CrazedWolf5) and Deb (susnny) and we were NOT talking about beer, LOL

What is the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you as a player or TD?

I was playing in the TOC in Spady, my partner was MillerMan and we lost the game because I joined another tourney to save it. I threw the wrong card and accidentally set his nil.

If you could be one person for a day; who would you be and why?

I am happy with just being me so why would I want to be anyone else.

You are given five minutes to evacuateyour house; the kids and pets are safe - which three items would you grab?

My husband, cell phone and charger, computer and cord.

How do you pass the time on your drive to and from work?


Name your three favorite movies:

Top Gun, The Blind Side, Dirty Dancing.

Do you have any particular heroes?

Not that I can think of.

What is your guiltiest pleasure?

I can't think of anything at the moment but I am sure as soon as I hit submit something will come to me, lol.

When I grow up I want to be just like:

I will never grow up so I don't have to worry about being like anyone else but myself.

Any last words for our readers?

Follow your heart and do what feels right. You will never get the time back that you missed but you can always improve on your future.
