About rubyj

This is a great site for all mystery fans. I enjoy reading Native-American mysteries...and need to stop watching QVC. I live in west Texas, where the summers are hot and the winters, well, if and when it decides to be winter!

My AIM is rubyj2000mn (and I'm rarely there). Alternate email:

Okay, a little more - I worked in the mental health field, in social services...for what seems forever...and am officially retired as of May 2011!

...beam me up Scotty, Bones, Uhura...anyone but Kirk...
...don't forget to vote...and if ya don't, I better not hear any whining outta ya!
For the ones who gave their children, spouses, loved ones & friends...for the ones who served in times of peace and war...for the ones who gave their very lives...THANK YOU!
Wishing the weather would make a decision...but then again, I do live in Texas...
Praying for...peace...our soldiers and allies...the enemies of freedom...and all the innocents trapped in between.
Hooray...Monk returns in June! Check it out...this ad has been endorsed by the Monk for President campaign...
From the mouths of babes comes truth...and spit-up, lots and lots of spit-up!
My life is poetry...sags, bags and memory lags...
