Ramona died on March 8, 2012. She was 79. It was her wish that her web remain on-line after her death, "if it's not too much trouble."
It'll be my pleasure, Sweetheart .. as long as I can still click this mouse!
Hello! Thanks for stopping by.
My name is Ramona John. My husband is Dick, and we live in North Texas. Our dog of unknown parentage, Jake, completes our tightly bonded pack of three.
My first career was in law. Of course, I had a number of jobs before that, including everything from sitting in a tub of bubble bath, wearing a bikini to advertise water softener, to modeling for art classes in the same bikini to field director for the Campfire Girls. But I digress...
I kept starting and stopping law school as Dickís work sent us hopping around the country. When we hit Houston in 1968, I began once more. This time, I was determined to stay until I clutched a law degree in my hand. We remained for thirty-three years. (It didnít take me that long to finish law school, thank heaven.) I opened my practice in 1971, in an office the size of a walk-in closet... Later, I became judge of a juvenile court. I finished my legal career as IV-D Director of Texas, (head of child support enforcement for the state).
Dick was a TV news anchor man and news director at stations across the country, from Oklahoma City to Tampa, New York, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles and Houston. He picked up a number of awards along the way, including an Emmy for his work on the Huntley-Brinkley Report. (He wonít like my mentioning that, but Iím proud of him.) Later, he became a media consultant, working independently and with others, such as Dan Ammerman at The Ammerman Experience. His work took him across the country and to South America, Saudi Arabia and Europe. Now retired, he has become a computer guru. Iím convinced that only our two sons know more about those incomprehensible machines. I consider them to be instruments of the devil. (Computers, not the boys.)
You can visit Dickís web page at dickjohn.com. I must be clear about one thing, though. We disagree on almost any issue you can name, so his opinions are strictly his own. (I love him, anyway. The poor thing is just misguided.)
My passion for writing has resulted in everything from poetry to articles to four books. I hope you'll look at some of my work. On the menu to the left, you'll find my complete books, many articles , poems and essays.
I hope you enjoy my web site and will visit again. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
