Sheila Scruggs

Sheila (Page) 12-1-15Originally from Lynchburg, TN (By the way, Sheila makes excellent lemonade…), Sheila lives in Cookeville with husband Tim and her fuzzy “kids.”

Sheila has always wanted a career in the spotlight. As a child, Sheila desperately wanted to be a professional whistler…but a series of unfortunate playground pranks involving sticking her tongue to a frozen flag pole brought those dreams to an end.

Thanks for all of the home remedies and get well wishes due to my scratchy voice. I’ve been fighting this upper respiratory infection off for about 6 days now. The doc has given me antibiotics.
