Empty Nest Home Page
This Home Page seemed like a good idea until I had to design it!
Having had a computer only eight months when I first did this page,
I think I bit off more than I could chew! But I have fun learning.
One thing I have discovered is that I'd rather try and do it than read HOW
to do it! That makes for a lengthy trial and error period.
I naively used to think that html stood for hotmail or some such thing--now
I know it stands for HATEMAIL!!
My husband and I are at
the Empty Nest stage of our lives, and really enjoy it. Nine years ago
I started a small antiques business which I named Empty Nest.
I have more fun than money but it keeps me off the streets and out of the
shopping malls and in the flea markets and antique malls. I love
American furniture, especially 18th and 19th Century pieces, both for my home
and shop. The Midwest is my favorite place to shop for treasures.
I am interested in learning
to use this computer--so far I have made baby steps forward and giant leaps
backward. But I keep on trying and will get the hang of it before too long.
My computer unfriendly husband has started collecting children's books and
now is into eBay and having fun.
All of our children
live in Texas, but in different directions from Houston. Seeing them
fairly often is a treat. Our oldest son and his wife have our grandaughter
Madeleine, and our grandson Adam. Our second son and his
wife just moved back to our area. Our daughter lives near Dallas
and is a graphic artist. Wish she would help rework this webpage!
Volunteer work takes up
some of my time. Sometime I'd like to try genealogy-my father
did our family from Germany to the US after the Civil War, and he did my mother's
side also for that time frame. I think it would be neat to try tracing
back beyond those original immigrants. The family names are Kuebler,
Wilkins, and Hansen. I hope to find some websites to help me
along the way. Any help would be appreciated. I asked for
and received Family Tree Maker for Christmas. It is a genealogy program
for computer. I am looking forward to using it.
