Hi Everyone.

I am Rita from Watkinsville, GA. I have been a fan of Bonanza since I saw the first episode back in 1959.
This should tell you I am truly a boomer.

I retired in September 2011 after working for 37 years.

I rent a small cottage where I live with an aging Cocker Spaniel (age 13) and six cats, Phoebe, Chloe, Yoshi, Meeko,
Lilly Rose, and Milo.

My hobbies are building dollhouses, all types of needlework, and model trains. I also collect dolls and bears. I am really a child at heart.
Also, I enjoy writing fanfiction, but I am a little rusty since I have not written in a few years.

My favorite character is Joe, but I do tolerate everyone else including Jamie.
