BACK TO SPLITS-LOUNGE
Hello: My chat name is Txroz; I have been on line since July 4, 2004 and have loved it ever since. I was born on May 14, 1943
and my Horoscope sign is "Taurus" But I am not bull headed just a blonde through and through.
I have been widowed since 1997 when my husband passed away at the young age of 52. We were married in April 1966 and several
years latter I gave birth to two lovely daughters, Lisa, who was born in l970 and Kristi, who was born in 1977. Kristi, arrived
on New Years Eve, what a beautiful way to celebrate the start of a new year. . My oldest daughter is a successful executive
secretary and now lives and works in Dallas for a large company. My youngest daughter is married and she and her husband
are both have there PhD’s and live in Sikeston, Mo.
I retired in 2002 from full time work, following my triple bypass surgery. I do still sell advertising for my home town
newspaper on a part time basis from home, I love the commute to work, from my bedroom to my computer and telephone. I started
working for this Newspaper in 1973 and I was employed there for 27 years as head bookkeeper, the last three years I was promoted
to a new position as business manager.
I have a church family at First Baptist Church here in my home town that I truly love. I volunteer as the church clerk
and I am also one of three Sunday school teachers who rotate monthly teaching the Bible Lessons for my Naomi Sunday school
class. I belong to a local senior citizen’s center, Monday thru Friday, 9 AM until 11:30 AM where I enjoy playing
“Skip Bo” & Uno with my friends. I am involved with the local meals on wheels program, I help assemble
meals for delivery by volunteer drivers, and I also deliver meals to the needy with my friends and with Doc-Holiday when he
is here visiting me. I am heavily involved at the local food pantry/thrift store and currently serve as president of the
board of directors. You may say why I do this, my answer to that is quite simple, I get a tremendous personal satisfaction
volunteering my free time for needy people as I count my blessings for what I have and that God has truly blessed me
My hobbies include gardening, reading, some craft work and I am absolutely passionate about garage sales, estate sales,
junk and thrift shops, goodwill store finds (get the idea) but do not like auctions, I am an avid collector of several items
in particular, things like, Rose and Owl and Old Antique Jewelry, Murano Glass, Ideals Magazines, Hard Back Readers Digest
Books, Bird Houses, all Assorted Christmas Items, I know I must of left something out!!
I first went online in July of 2004, I then discovered “Chat Rooms” and found several great ones with
many nice people around my age. This opened up a whole new world to me. The Chatters that I have met are wonderful, and several
are among the greatest friends I could have ever hoped to have. As chatters we definitely do not always agree on every thing
but that is what makes life and chat so interesting. If we were all clones of each other just think of how boring that would
The most wonderful thing about chat is that this is where I met the love of my life for the second half of my life, his
name is Doc-Holiday. We met in person for the first time on September 25, 2005 at a bash thrown by Dixie of Little Brown
Jug, the Bash was held at Marshfield, Missouri. We were just chat friends at first, but the more we chatted and got to know
each other, the more we became even closer friends and then a bond of the hearts took place and both of our lives changed
for the better. Doc and I met again in January of 2006 at my daughters home in Dallas, and our attraction for each other became
more than that, it became a romance that I have only known about in novels. Even though this is a long distance relationship
we have grew closer and closer and have been seeing each other steadily ever since. Doc has been to Texas for a total of 14
trips and that added up to a total of 120 days in 18 months.
Now to share about Doc-Holiday
He was born Feb 22, 1944 in Brooklyn New York (he’s my favorite Yankee City Slicker for this little country
girl from the sticks). He served honorably in the Army and did a tour of duty in Viet Nam (1964 to 1965) and came home and
worked for New York City Transit Authority for over 39 years and retired from there in May, 2003. During his employment with
NYC Transit, Doc put his GI Bill money to work and attended college at night to get his engineering degree to help further
his career. He now works at J.F. Kennedy Airport, NY and is employed as an Electrical Engineer. He plans to retire in May
Doc was married in January, 1969 after a two year courtship which shaped his life in a good way, they had two children
from this marriage, a daughter who is now a school teacher in New Jersey and a son who is a Tell-Communications Systems Technician
for a large company in New Jersey. Doc moved from Brooklyn in 1973 and bought his first home in Staten Island, NY, He then
moved to New Jersey in 1983 and has been a resident of that state since. Sadly his wife died in 2000 a few days after there
31 anniversary of cancer. His loving children and his career helped him thru this very rough time in h is life. But he survived
from this and like me he turned to chat to help fill a void in his life. He also found chat friends he never dreamed of having.
Dixie’s Bash in Missouri was the first bash either of us ever attended. It was almost like going to a family reunion
and we both loved meeting the folks we chatted with.
Doc-Holiday s hobbies include wood working, cars (he is a car buff) and collecting old car magazines. He also enjoys doing
Bar-B-Ques and traveling. He is one in a million, always well dressed, courteous, considerate, generous and best of all “lol”
HE LIKES TO COOK and HELP IN THE KITCHEN. (My Dream Come True) Just kidding, that’s not best of all but I won't
elaborate on that. Let's just say I Am One Lucky Woman to have this man
