Off the Clock: My favorite activities are to visit our son and his family in Connecticut, and to eat in outdoor cafes with my husband and our adorable dog, Daisy.    

Funny Story: I signed us up to get email notifications for our neighborhood through the Nextdoor online community. There is a family that posts frequently about their turtle that keeps running away, and then is captured, and then runs away again. We are all on the lookout for this crazy, speedy turtle. That’s what email notifications are meant for!
