am now divorced. I was married for 32 years, and no relationship of

I try to always be aware of what is going on in my friends' and
family's life and offer friendship and care where it is needed.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hm, I thought I did this already. I'm probably good at any number

love French, especially Basque, and really good down-home American.
