Four Things I Love 

Let’s face it this world is nuts!
Negativity is all around us in the news. Finding positive things to keep us sane can be challenging.
Stay focused on things that make YOU happy.
My Husband Dave

High school sweethearts and still married after thirty five years. We love our eight grandchildren and when we’re not busy with them were riding our Harley Davidson 1997 Softail.


One word sums it all up! Who can’t live without it?

Adventure And Travel

I love getting outside, breathing the fresh mountain air. Colorado is well known for it’s glorious majestic mountains.

Pikes Peak is the most visited mountain in North America and the second most visited mountain in the world behind Japan’s Mount Fuji. Out of 54 Colorado peaks it’s the 31st highest. The Cog Railway is the best way to climb up the mountain when you physically don’t climb. As you’ve along the train track the history of how the cog railway is fascinating to look at and listen to.

Dillon Reservoir is one of the many beautiful reservoirs and lakes Colorado has to offer. The fishing is incredible. Dillon Reservoir, also known as Dillon Lake is located just south of Summit County and boarders between Frisco and Dillion, Colorado.

There are so many outdoor and indoor activities one can do in Colorado. That’s why I love living here so much. Not to mention all my grandkids live here too.

Old Fashioned Way Of Life

There’s a song by Tim McGraw called Back When. Describing just the way it was for me growing up as a kid. “When a coke was a coke, a smoke was a smoke and a crack is what you were doing when you were cracking jokes”.

Oh, some of my greatest pleasures were hanging out with my friends, riding bikes, and just being a kid. Not tied down to responsibilities, having to worry about jobs, paying bills, and the rest of the adult complications in life.

Sometimes you need to sit back, look around and breathe. Keep positive, smile, and be happy.

As Always,

Traveling Abroad 

I haven’t been to many exotic places in my travels.  Never been outside the United States Of America either.

My most memorable trip was when we took our then fourteen year old daughter, Nicole Osmera with us to Gulfport Florida for the fourth of July.

This is a time I will forever cherish.  Swimming in the ocean blue waters, and making sand castles.  The Fourth of July parade and fireworks overlooking the ocean.  Instead of being the dreaded teenager, she was pleasant to get along with and actually had conversations with us.

We haven’t had the luxury of taking a cruise or  traveling internationally. However we have traveled thorough out Colorado fishing, motorcycle riding and whatever else why felt like doing.

One day I plan to travel to Israel to see where Jesus walked, swim in the Dead Sea, pray at the Wailing  Wall and eat good food.

I hope you have had a great traveling adventure in your life.  If not maybe one day soon.

5 Things You Might Not Know About Me

I actually got this idea from my fellow PAC community members K Lee Banks a wonderful writer, freelance consultant who’s insight into the world helps benefit others.

1. Married To My Wonderful Husband David J Osmera. 

Dave and I met back in high school. We have three kids and eight grandchildren.  On March fifth Dave and I will be celebrating our thirty fifth wedding anniversary. 

2. Faith, Family and Freedom 

My parents always taught me Jesus first.  Faith in God will sustain one through every challenge in life. 

Family will always be family! No matter what happens in life you can’t change who your family is. Granted some families are spread far apart; however they would still defend and sit right by each other no matter what. 

Freedom! Not much more can be written about this word.  Never let anyone threaten to take away your freedom.

3. Published Author 

Terror In The North Tower came as a result of my passion for respiratory therapy and patient care.   This suspenseful fictional thriller will have you gripping the edge of your seat. 
4. Harley Davidson Motorcycle Mamma

Riding there’s something about the open air, moving fast with a vibration under your butt!

Dave and I own a 1997 Harley Davidson Softail.  Last year we didn’t get much riding in due to both of his hips getting replaced. 

 Getting older doesn’t mean one has to stop riding.  They make big wheels for adults it’s called a trike. Trikes are the new big wheels! 

5.  My Favorite Band Is?

I will give you a few minutes to guess.  I first saw this great American Iconic band in 1977.  I fell in love right away with there stage presence, they way their lead singer could hit those high notes.  Not to mention how sexy he was and sit is with those scarves on the long microphone stand.

Have you guessed yet?

Yep that’s them. The ultimate band of all time! 

My bucket list includes getting to meet Steven Tyler and jam just one song with him.
Well that’s my five things.  I hope you enjoyed the article.
