My Hobbies & Interests

and "The Price is Right" and "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" (I do!). I
have enjoyed bowling for many years of my life.
I enjoy visiting Walt Disney World

The Family Pets
My son Craig brought home a cat which shortly thereafter got
pregnant. We exchanged her for a a dog, which my three boys named
Sherman after the kids show "Peabody and Sherman." However, Sherman was
the boy and Peabody was the dog in the actual show. Sherman was a
lovable dog who grew up with the three boys. Craig went to college and
brought home a 3-month old dog by the name of Bandit. Bandit and Sherman
became good friends. Unfortunately at the age of 16, Sherman fell into
the pool and downed. My son Brad and his father that that it would be
best to get a replacement for Sherman, but unfortunately it was a mixed
pit-bull. He grew so big that he could almost jump over the fence, and
with all the small children around, we had to get rid if this 6-month old dog.
After we got rid of the god, we found out that Bandit was pregnant. I
kept one of the dogs, Fluffy. She, unfortunately, attacked her mother
when she grew up so we had to get rid of her. My youngest son Brad
brought home a cat by the name of Shadow. Unfortunately, Bandy got sick
and died, and now I have Shadow who keeps me company!
Bandy is adorable!

First to Immigrate:
The first persons to come to the United States in my family were Ernest &
Paula Bayer. Paula grew up in Siegmundsburg, Germany, a village in the
Thuringer Forest. She worked in a butcher shop in Coburg. Ernest grew up
in Schney and studied art in France. Ernest and Paula arrived at Ellis Island, New York in
August of 1923 coming from the small town of Schney in the province of Bavaria
in Germany. They came by steamship liner in search of a better life.
The journey took about two weeks. Upon arriving, they could speak German
and my father could also speak French and they had to then learn English. Immigrating the USA was one of
the best things that ever happened to them. My mother lived to be 74 years of
Best thing that ever happened to me:
Besides marrying Stanley and having my three boys, being
a contestant on the TV game show "The Price is Right" 1961.
