As a native of Athens, Alabama, I grew up living in town. When we married in 1973, my husband, Oran and I moved to the country. He farms and has always lived in this area. I was unsure how I would like living in "the country" and never would have believed it, but I quickly came to love it.  I suppose that's obvious since we've now lived here for over 40 years. Our only child Luke lives in this area as well and is a home builder. Luke married Heather Fields, so we now have a daughter in law.  How exciting to finally get a daughter!  As of August 11, 2012, Heather gave birth to our first grandchild, Katelyn Mae Johnson.  She weighed 8.8 lbs. and was 20 in. long.  She is now a year and half old!  Wow, how time flies!  We are very blessed.
