Everything you never wanted to know about me
Fairly current picture of me

Hi! My name is Elaine Pack. I'm a retired Web Analyst with the County of Albemarle in Charlottesville, Virginia, home of the University of Virginia. I'm married to Leon Pack, and have one child, Leslie, who is married to Patric Johnson. Those two were kind enough to present us with THE most beautiful granddaughter EVER!! on March 31, 2020, which formally put us over the moon :)

We had two Border Terriers, a female named Poppie (b.1989) and a male, Rudy (b.1999). Sadly, we lost Poppie in December 2004, and Rudy way too early in September 2009, but they will alway be in our hearts and never forgotten. I was also an Air Force brat growing up so I've done a LOT of traveling around in my life. If you are mildly interested or suffer from insomnia, this is my background.

I've spent most of my career in a corporate two-step with my husband, starting in Northern Virginia, with stops along the way in New Haven, CT, Jackson, MS, Dallas, TX, only to end up in Charlottesville, Virginia, or more specifically, in Ivy, on the western side of the county with wonderful mountain views, where we spent a LOT of years.

In 2015 we started looking around to decide where we wanted to retire, and discovered that Charlotte, NC, would be a GREAT place to retire, given it's a big city, and we are city kids at heart. We are also DONE DONE DONE with snow :) We found a community we liked in north Charlotte, and built a home there. I retired from the County on September 30, 2016, and on October 3, 2016, we moved to Charlotte full time. We've never looked back.*

*Well, not quite :)

Long story for a late night and maybe a beer or two, but in early 2020 we decided we wanted to move again. We didn't go far tho, about 10 miles up the road to Huntersville, a sweet little Lake Norman town. We built another house, and moved into it on March 9, 2020, just in time before the pandemic struck. But despite all that, we are proud to announce the birth of Isla Prentice Johnson, daughter of Leslie and Patric Johnson, on March 31, 2020. Our first grandchild, and boy is she ever GORGEOUS!! WAY more to come on this I'm sure :)

Some stuff I like:

Looking for an excellent NEW email client for your desktop? Fan or user of Eudora, once one of the best of the best, but while still usable, is now hopelessly outdated in today's world? Give a look at Pandora, a brand new client that is essentially "cloned" from Eudora, with much of the familiar look and feel of Eudora, but with all the old problems fixed and a LOT of brand new functionality! AND it's still under active development with lots more goodies to come.
