Since 2007, I have lived in the countryside outside the city of Fayetteville, NC. I am originally from southern California and plan to move back there one, but not soon. I am a creature of change, which is not common, but it suits me. I move forward, not back, so I will be moving to the northern side of CA, not the southern end, where I have already been. I am more of an outdoors person and the Sierra Nevada mountains were made for me to explore for many years. In the meantime I will continue to enjoy the beauty of my surroundings and hopefully make some new friends.
I have lived all over this beautiful country and have enjoyed all of it. I am retired from the Department of Defense, 10 years in the Air Force, then as a contractor to the Navy in California.
I am the mother of three wonderful young men, who I raised by myself (and did a pretty good job, if I do say so myself). Jesse and Nick live in Reno, NV. Jonah, lives with his wife Julie, daughter, Clara, and son Brennan in Grants Pass, OR.
I have been widowed since 1996 and have not really dated since then. I know, long time, it just didn't occur to me.
Lately though, I have begun to imagine that it would be nice to meet someone to go places and do things with.
It would have to be someone very special; someone who is happy with himself and who would like to meet someone to add to his life. Must love to laugh, I love to laugh.
I have no interest in meeting anyone who is looking for a meaningless fling or the like. I find those interested in shallow relationships, of any kind, shallow people. My friends are my friends forever, and vice versa.
I don't drink or use illegal drugs and don't want to meet anyone who does. (An occasional drink is the exception)
I have a good / odd sense of humor. Some may find me a bit sarcastic at times, but in a good way (I hope).
I am always kind, never mean and mostly happy.
I am generous, caring, and spiritual
