This has been a fascinating life. I've had two great careers, radio personality and newscaster, and today as Executive Secretary for the Tennessee Department of Veterans Affairs. In both capacities I had daily opportunities to both have a good time and make a positive difference in the lives of others.<br /> <br /> I've had too many husbands, and repeated too many lessons before finally connecting with Davey, the love of my life, the only man upon whom I can count completely (except when the Titans are playing.) <br /> <br /> Davey and I love to dress up and go out to play. We're Titans flameheads, featured annually by the Nashville MTA on their buses &amp; brochures, this year on benches too! St. Patrick's Day we appear as Paddy &amp; Katie O'Blarney stone in both Franklin &amp; Erin, TN. Halloween is one of our favorite holidays!<br /> <br /> Separately we're excellent cooks, and together we come up with amazing concoctions. We've celebrated our mutual birthday together for years, and finally perfected our signature cake, Chocolate Bliss. <br /> <br /> We have both had too much sadness and now do our best to have fun at every opportunity. Even with no money, we're still two of the wealthiest people we know.
