About Me

Laurel LaFramboise I'm 66 years old in 2020! I'm coming to accept that I'll make no earth-shattering accomplishments in my life, having tried (and failed) at launching some pretty far-fetched ideas (like VoteKISS), projects (like running for US Senator), and career moves (like raising and butchering meat birds). I've (almost) been content to be my grandchildren's baby sitter for the last 6 years, but hubby's retired and wants me by his side now that the grandchildren are no longer babies. So we've begun the life of Snowbirds (winter in FL, summer in VT). NEVER know what you'll be when you grow up!
