Barbara is a native of Tulsa, Oklahoma and attended the University of Oklahoma. After graduating, she settled in Dallas in the mid 1970's. After several years in the work force, she put herself through UT-Arlington on savings, student loans and internships where she met her husband Raymond and earned a degree in Engineering and became a technical writer.
Barbara was a stay-at-home mom, a PTA mom, and a band mom as well as a grassroots activist. She is a longtime member of Golden Corridor Republican Women.
In actuality, Barbara is a bit of a homebody. She loves to cook, grow herbs and watch birds. She's a part time employee for a small company. She works behind the scenes and people notice that a lot of grunt detail work gets done...the copies get made, the newsletters get folded and mailed and the phone calls get made so that those with the prettier faces and more impressive resumes have time to focus on their activities (such as writing blogs). She'd rather endure Chinese water torture than do a radio show or a TV appearance. People who have known Barbara for a long time will attest to the fact that she does have a wicked sense of humor and a talent for writing since her days as a high school journalism student. She posts under the name "Basset Hound" on several conservative blogs.Posts by Barbara Hibberd
