Meet a Westsider:
Virginia Cox

Profession/Occupation... Retired. I worked as a supervisor at Hewlett Packard, and as an operator for the phone company. I volunteered at the Old Colorado Historical Society and am still a charter member there.

What I like most about the Westside is... the mountains, the friendly people, and the weather.

If I could change anything about the Westside, it would be... I donít think thereís anything I would change.

A good movie Iíve seen recently is... I like Westerns. I was born and raised on a farm in Kansas; thatís why I like Westerns.

The worst advice Iíve ever gotten was... my memory isnít as good as it used to be but I remember following the advice of my parents. Living on a farm, it was important.

If I could meet someone famous, Iíd like to meet... I would have liked to meet some of the Western actors.

The next time I travel, Iím going to... go up in the mountains. Iíd also like to visit all my relatives. Last visit was to see my granddaughter in California.

My favorite childhood memory is... my best memory is milking the cows, feeding the chickens and helping herd the cattle on my black shetland pony; she could turn real quick. My mother had a green thumb and we had our own orchard, grew our own food, raised our own cattle and had a pond with fish. I liked visiting my grandparents Hubbard. I remember entertaining our friends and relatives that visited, I played piano and my brother played guitar.

My favorite fall pastime is... to sit on the porch and enjoy the view. I enjoy going to Pleasant Valley Baptist Church on Sundays, and I love to sing.

Something good Iíve read is.. the Bible. I read the scriptures every day.

My pet peeve is... I donít like it when people lie about something.

If I won the lottery, Iíd... probably make a trip back down to Kansas to see my old friends and relatives and then help people.
