YP Member Interview #3

By Jessie

It’s time for the next instalment in our YP Members in Profile series. I’m very pleased to introduce long-time YouPlayer and all-round lovely person - Spoggy!

SPOGGY: I live on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia and have lived here for 23 years. I love reading, horror movies and cryptozoology, as well as brain games. I love Italian food and the music from the 40's to the 80's but I’m not into sport much. I enjoy reading, especially horror/supernatural books and Catherine Cookson novels.

I found YouPlay when I Googled ‘free games’ and promptly joined up – I’d
 only had my computer for about six months and was really 'green' (hehe). My favourite puzzles are Sudoku, Addoku and Trivia Combat.

No pets at the moment, but hubby and I have had dogs most of the time - labs, and hubby used to breed standard poodles!

We love to holiday in Sydney, Perth and Melbourne, as we have friends in all 
of those states, and the Gold Coast was a beautiful experience two years ago.

Being a Virgo, I'm a bit of a fusspot and a perfectionist! I’m also a bit of 
a neat freak, so I tend to spring clean twice a year and de-clutter the
 house on a regular basis (but I'm not uptight about it!)

My hubby and I worked as musicians/entertainers for 25
 years, all over the state, and I have a BLACK BELT in karate (received 
when I was 20 years old, but you don't forget the moves!)

I get angry and sad about unfairness in the world and people taking 
advantage of those who cannot stick up for themselves. I work as an aged
 care nurse assistant in the 'high care dementia' field. I wish I could run
 my own nursing home to right the faults which I see every day.

I'm a happy person with a very strong ethic and I will fight for what I 
think is an unfair situation - I stick up for others and help people when I
 can. Hubby and I have coordinated a stroke and neurological support group 
here on the coast for the past 15 years – we founded the group by ourselves 
on a volunteer basis.

Hey Spoggy, a most down to earth and uplifting read! I can relate to the Virgoan issues! My partner works in the same field as you and my Dad is in a home (dementia) so I know where you are coming from when you say 'right the faults'. Your support group is a great idea and good for you both getting that up and running. All the best.
