I arrived in Phoenix on November 19, 1971. I got married at Brotherhood of Man Desert Chapel and had my wedding reception at Ye Olde Lantern Restaurant, which is now Don & Charlie's in Scottsdale.
When Im stuck in traffic, I call friends or family.
I never forget to TiVo Without a Trace.
One thing my mother doesnt know about me is I have two wonderful grandchildren, Tommy and Lily. (My parents are deceased.)
On Saturday night, you can find me at home with my husband, Tom.
My favorite thing about summer in Phoenix is getting a good parking place at the mall since I am the "Shopping Queen."
If I could redo my first kiss, Id kiss a frog, which would turn into a prince specifically, Prince William.
The one dessert I refuse to eat is coconut cream pie.
If I was mayor of Phoenix, Id try to do the same good job as our current mayor, Phil Gordon.
In high school, I was the kid who was voted "most likely to succeed."
In another life, I was a dog, especially a Shih Tzu. Our dogs are treated like royalty.
The one place in Phoenix I dont want anyone to know about is Giuseppe's Italian Kitchen, at the southwest corner of Scottsdale and Thunderbird. It is a BYOB restaurant, very casual with great inexpensive homemade Italian food.
On my nightstand, youll find any magazine about Arizona.
The fictional character Im most like is Wonder Woman.
One thing I want to do before I die is travel to Spain.
The best thing about Phoenix is just about everything, especially the climate.
