Yes, this is a different photo, but that's not all I meant. It shows her engaged in one of her enthusiasms, her PC. She uses it in her business and as a reference tool, and in her volunteer work with the LAFD.
She maintains the CERT-LA website, an international treasury of information and resources for Community Emergency Response Teams. She's a committed supporter of those teams, and of the Los Angeles Fire Department's work promoting and training them. (They invented CERT, and FEMA took it national.

Lindy loves to know things and she loves language. We've collected half a bookcase of reference books. Some of them she uses professionally, proofreading for clients who count on her to know spelling, grammar, and practice. She also uses her technical knowledge to their advantage, correcting misuses of terms from engineering and science.
You can probably tell: I'm delighted with her, proud of her, and very glad to be with her.
