Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on what her life has been like] Sometimes, I'm misunderstood and it's hard to come by that. My life has been full of excitement. I've done pretty much what I wanted to do. I came from the Midwest, from South Dakota, and I came up the hard way. We lived on a farm; we didn't even have electricity or running water, if you know what I mean. People don't know what that life is like. See more »
