TERRI: I live in Knoxville, TN. I have been a dental
assistant for 23 years, the last 16 of them for
the same dentist.
I have been a Rager for 5 years, that's when
I saw Rhonda for the first time.
Hobbies are spending as much time with my
10 yr. old nephew, Spencer and 3 yr. old
niece, Kate as I possibly can. I love to play
around with my fiddle ( I'd love to play
bluegrass, but it's too hard for me, so for
now, it's old-time. I like to go by myself to
the mountains and just lay on a blanket and
read, or pray, or whatever hits me at the
moment. I love music of all kinds, but blue-
grass is my favorite.
As far as goals go, I guess my ultimate goal
is just to try as hard as I can to be like
