I am a retired analyst for the US Government. I have been retired for 20 years and feel very blessed that I have had that much time to travel and have fun with my husband who retired from John Deere 23 years ago. I like tole painting, ceramics, crocheting and any other craft that might catch my attention. My husband and I had two sons who have gifted us with nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. They are all apples of my eyes. I love reading and lose myself in the adventures of all of the main characters from my Kindle. Recently I have been doing surveys and that is how I ran into Wealthy Affiliate. Being a retiree, I have recently realized that our expenses seem to be going up much faster than any increases of our retirement checks. So I thought I would give Wealthy Affiliate a try to see if I can supplement our income a bit.
