Hello my name is Barbara. I was born back east, and raised in the Sacramento/San Joaquin River Delta of California.

We lived on one of the islands, ( Ryer Island ) it's about three miles outside the small delta town of Rio Vista. In order to get there we had to use one of two ferry's The Real McCoy Or the The J-Mack They said the island is about 30 miles around, as the crow flies. ( In this case sea-gulls )

That brought back a memory! My Dad plowing the fields. That always brought the birds down. Pretty site all those birds in the newly plowed fields. Such a hard working man. And how he loved to go fishing. Sure miss him.

I now live in Stockton I still have the Delta a few minutes away. Great fishing and water sports around here, all that water and I never did learn how to ski.

We are so centrally located that we only need a few hours to go anywhere. The beach or to the mountains even the BIG CITIES...

Yosemite National Park is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen.

I married my high-school sweetheart,
but sorry to say we divorced after 28 years.

We have two great sons named John and Matthew.

John is married to Cristina. They have three kids.
Jacqueline, Jessica, and Jacob. And for some reason all three have the same initials as their father. I wonder why?

Matthew is/was married to Carrie. They
have one daughter..... Shyann
