I am a , fit, active,"young" lady who has traveled many roads with
many turns (figuratively, and literally). I love outdoor activities
such as bicycling , hiking, swimming, gardening, and just working
in the yard. I also enjoy festivals, museums, concerts( indoors and
outdoors), almost all kinds of music,exploring out- of -the
ordinary places, traveling ( near and far), love nature and
watching sunsets, seasonal changes, walks on the beach, or sitting
by a warm fire with my" honey". I am open to new learning
experiences, and would welcome some new variety in my life. Even
though I can enjoy some of these activities alone, it would be so
wonderful to share them with someone special.
I am a college graduate with a BA degree in Education, but did not
retire from a teaching career. I have held various jobs, and also
spent many years in the equine industry which was my passion.
I have two daughters, one on the east coast, and one on the west
coast. We are close, but don't see each other often, because of
jobs, and distance.
My personality test reveals that I am a "sonnet" (under "test"). I
have also answered many of questions under the heading "The Two of
us", which reveal much about my values, attitudes, personal habits,
and philosophies. I would consider myself a rather simple person in
that I don't require a lot of material things to be happy, or
satisfied. However, my aesthetic values ,as well as "creature
comfort" values do put some limits on "simplicity" of lifestyle in
regard to my living environment.
I desire to meet someone who is caring, compassionate, respectful,
in good health, cares about his physical appearance, doesn't smoke,
physically active, appreciates natural beauty , has versatile
interests, politically liberal,or (a "true" moderate, or
non-conformist), financially comfortable ( not necessarily
wealthy),but not a "penny pincher".
One more thing. Please! DO NOT CONTACT me if you are UNDER the AGE
of 65, and don't try to tell me that age is "just a number",
because it isn't. Let's be realistic!

Even though I am a homeowner, I am willing to relocate for the
What I’m doing with my life
Until a little over a year ago, I worked as farm manager on a small
private horse farm. My position was terminated due to some
extenuating circumstances beyond my control. I have recently bought
a house in Hartselle, Al. I am now retired , on a fixed income, but
comfortable . I volunteer at the local hospital, play French horn
in community symphonic band, and take yoga (for flexibility) ,
zumba(for cardio) , and Body Pump( for strength building.)

Keeping a budget, keeping physically fit, household management,

The six things I could never do without
my good health, my daughters, my family, persistance, my computer,
my education .
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My life lessons, and how to apply them to the rest of my life, and
what I can do to make a difference in the lives of others.
On a typical Friday night I am
Thinking about how nice it would be to have someone special to do
something fun together.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll tell you when we meet. After writing all of this,and answering
all of those questions, I have to have some secrets.
You should message me if
you think I am a "good fit", and if you are willing to travel a
day's drive to meet, as I would be also,( once we have gotten to
know each other through e-mailing and/or phone calls.)
