About Me

Judy G.
I was raised in South Florida back in the years when it was a peaceful and wonderfully safe place to live. We lived a mile from the beach and could ride our bikes over the intercoastal bridge right to the best beach around. All my years of growing up I was a competitive swimmer and belonged to AAU. I granduated from Florida State University with a BS degree in nursing. I am recently retired but I'm thinking of going back to work to support my hobbies.

That first summer in 1952, my grandmother, Edna, stayed with us all the time, because my mom and dad were so busy starting out with their new life, my dad going to cosmetology school (or beauty school as it was called back then).  Mom was organizing her new home just like she wanted it.  They had to buy some new "Florida furniture' - much of the furniture back then was made of rataan.  As you can see, she always wore a dress, but we were thrilled to be able to dress in shorts and sandals.

This is the side view of our house.  We lived on the corner, and you can see one of our orange trees and a palm tree in our yard.  The road you see actually end right at the Intercoastal Waterway.  You can see it in this picture.  It was so great to be that close to the water.  We went fishing all the time!
