In the photo, I'm the fellow without the dark glasses. The picture was taken in one of my favorite places in the world--St. Petersburg, Russia. I am a retired university professor with advanced degrees in journalism and mass communication. These days I'm proud to say that I'm a runner, triathlete and quilter. The man with the dark glasses is my husband, Bert Kubli, who retired several years ago after a career at the National Endowment for the Arts. He "gutted" and rebuilt our home on Capitol Hill, which was originally built in 1897; so today, all that you see inside our home, Bert built--walls, floors, staircase, new kitchen...everything. The remodeling was finished about four years ago. Today he's using his skilled master-builder hands to create various art projects.
