My biological father,
Robert "Skippy"Auburn Alexander, was killed when I was only five years
1961. It was his mother, Mom-Mom, whom I was the closest to. I look more like
my father and his side of the family, than I do my mother. I remember when he
was alive and I remember when he died. He is in an unmarked grave in North
These are pictures of my
Mom-Mom and one picture of Pop-Pop holding my brother Alan. I can still
remember all the stories Mom-Mom would tell me. She was a drinker...loved her
beer...and she would tell me of the 'Speak Easies' back in the prohibition
times. She used to win the 'Charleston
dance' contests. I loved her stories and treasure that I still
remember them so well. She taught me how to bake bread when I was very
young....and now I win blue ribbons for my home-made bread....and I use all
the secrets she taught me. I'm going to include that recipe on this site.....
These pictures are of
Billy, one of which was taken when he was in the Marines.
These are my children...Billy, who
was born January 1978, and Bambie, born in June 1981. They are from a previous
relationship. These are two pictures of my children's father when we were
still together. Both kids are grown and live out on their own in other states.
I used to have pictures of me and my
ex-husband in this spot, but since we're not together, OUT with the old, IN with
I have a boyfriend and we've been together since 2006. His
name is Tom, so, we're TomCatt.
He's going to graduate from Clemson University in Clemson,
South Carolina in May 2009 and he'll finally have his Ph.D in Chemistry. I'm so
proud of him.
Tom is very active in Martial Arts and recently he was
awarded his Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. In the picture above Tom is shown
with Roberto Traven from
his Atlanta, Georgia Academy and Blake
Wood, with the Spartanburg Martial Arts.
Tom also takes Judo classes and works out at the gym
regularly. He takes Judo classes in Clemson, SC and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in
Spartanburg, SC when he's here on weekends.
And we have two cats....that's right, just
two animals. Cecil
is like no other cat I've ever had. He's in the first picture. Sad to say, he
died on February 14, 2009. I miss him terribly.Be sure to visit his page.
is just as original...in his way. He has his own page, too. He's the cat in
the middle.We actually call
him Va-Vee, which is pronounced like baby, only with V's.
And we have Oboe, whom we
call Bone. He's the newest and youngest. I love that he's solid black, except
his white spot under his neck. Bone is also the cat who broke my femur in
2007. Don't even get me started on THAT nightmare.
