Joining in

Well, I'm joining in at Barb's urging (nagging)! I'm the youngest of Lillie Beckel and Charlie Obermeyer's daughters, for those who don't know the name. I'm a Californian... love the mild climate and easy access to mountain, ocean, desert, big city... whatever the occasion requires. Hubby Roy is a native--born and raised right here in Riverside. We're retired from the photography business and do a lot of volunteer work. Our 4 kids are grown and scattered, so we have lots of reasons to travel... grandkids and great-grands galore. I've written 2 children's books, the second one just completed this week. Roy's photos are a significant part of it. What fun! I hope to get to know some of the Beckel/Obermeyer offspring that I've never met, and hear from the ones I do know. Have a blessed day! Vickie
