J is for Joe

I've mentioned him a few times already, but let me formally introduce you to my husband, my high school sweetheart, my friend, and my partner on this journey.  His name is Joe, not short for Joseph as many assume.

He has traveled extensively while serving just over 22 years in the U.S. Marine Corps - Japan, Korea, Africa, Germany, Turkey, Iraq, Afghanistan, Cuba, Jerusalem - just to name a few.  One day, we plan on traveling together :-)

He works hard, is infinitely patient with me, loves to garden, and is an avid outdoorsman.  He is much more disciplined, way more friendlier, a better cook and in so much better shape than I am.  Sssshhh!! Just don't tell him I admitted any of that!


  1. ::Waving to Joe:: He sounds like a great guy! :)

  2. Hi Pati,

    Came by from A to Z blog fest and love the look of your blogs. I have my own Marine - my son who left the corp after 4 years but is always a marine!

    I am also NOT a writer but have found a lot of joy in writing for my blog. I'll be back.!!
