<p>I work in a hospital for the Dept. of Social Services. I see and address life, death and difficult situations each day. I have an abundance of gratitude for the life that I have and the health that allows me to lead it. My passion is for motorcycles, particularly vintage ones. I have 4. A 1946 Harley Davidson Knucklehead, 1949 HD Flathead, 1980 HD Electra Glide and an Indian Chief. I ride daily for joy and to save gas. Being Gemini, words are important and information abundant. My goal is to finish a book in the next year. It is titled, &quot;Letters From Harry.&quot; I have letters written to my grandmother from 1912-1921 from my grandfather, Harry G. White. They are love letters, letters from the front in WWI and letters from the ranch in Montana where he was a cowboy. The pages will hold copies of the envelopes and the letters can be taken out and read. Photos and commentary will surround each page. I rescue greyhounds, travel, love historic places and great houses, buy too much vintage silver, read everything and only wear boots.</p>
