I am who I am ....an honest, sincere and very caring person, who
loves to laugh and have fun, but also appreciates a good bantering
session if only to match wits at times... After living in Southern
California for 35 years, I returned to my home town of Akron, Ohio.
Though widowed for several years, I've been blessed with a
wonderful daughter who's married and has two precious children that
I adore. My professional history evolves mostly around sales and
marketing. I was a sales and catering manager in the hotel
industry(and loved it) for many years, then changed hats and have
been selling insurance for the past 12 years. Hey, enough about me.
I'd much rather hear about you!

The six things I could never do without
Freedom to choose.....
My senses: to smell the roses, taste something wonderful, listen to
great music, see the beauty in life, and to touch and be
Six things I could do without are:
Loud cell phone users in public
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Traveling to distant places, and anticipating just how to proceed
with "retired" life. Also considering a part-time stint to finance
those fantasy "getaways".
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading a good book after enjoying shabbos dinner..maybe watching
Discovery ID or Letterman...very quiet...more quiet than I prefer
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm still into astrology...over 40 years now...not obsessed, but
just curious and observant of tendancies.
