I'm a shutter-bug bitten by the history bug. I write, substitute teach, crochet, feed animals and work to restore the 122-year-old Oneida Stake Academy building as a community center/museum of local history. (See www.oneidastakeacademy.org.) Most importantly, I try to be a good mother, grandmother and wife.
