I am a Hosta Addict and will openly admit it! I was just looking for something to grow in the back side of my house, which only grew moss when we move to this house. Two summers later is became a obession, Now two summers after the start of the obession I have 100 named varities and not much shade left unplanted :wink:

I have been married 21 years, have two kids: Katie 14 yrs and Evan 7 years. We also have two cats, Missy 16 and she has Cancer. Then there is Tiger the fat cat. Dusty is a Shiz Shu (?), but thinks he is big and tough and wrestles with Evan. Oh, yes we also have a G. Pig, ask me sometime and I'll tell you the story about how he cost me $132 at the vet.

I used to be a graphic designer, have fine arts degree even! Got tired being broke, went back to school, (try nursing clinicals while pregnant/new baby!) Now I am an R.N. at a large teaching hospital helping to deliver babies.

When not growing hostas, I am addicted to Cross Stitching. I also sew, can crochette, paint, draw, want to learn woodworking and stainglass. Just made my first quilt!

Congratulation on your second career.

Postby oldcoot » May 12, 2005 11:27 am

O.C.'s daughter finished Clemson (SC) with a degree in French and Political Science. A top student. Couln'd find a job (wanted to be an international Stewardess, but that was the years they started downsizing and going broke.Told her if she wanted to get another kind of job, get into the Medical Profession. To make a long story real short, she put her self through 2 years in Charleston, SC at the med school of South Carolina and got a degree in Physical Therapy.. Makes so much money now, it's indescent. BUT HEY, she did it on her own. Manages two Clinics in Rock Hill, S.C. and is really happy.....

We have a nice little family here, so join in ask questions and we'll certainly try to give you an answer, and PLEASE do post pictures of your thingies ! O.C./ LOVES pictures...
