A little about me. I've lived in Kansas for 15 years. I hate it, but this is my home. I like doing outdoorsy things, such as fishing, hunting, hiking, camping, or simply sitting on my porch swing listening to music or reading a book. I love to travel. I have been to 49 states, Alaska being the only exception. I have been to Italy, France, and Greece numerous times, which is one of the reasons why I speak the languages. If you hear it enough times, you eventually pick up on it. The only continents I have not been to are South America, Antarctica, and Austrailia. I also like art and museums. On my many travels, I see road signs advertising a county museum or some other place of historical importance, and always make it a point to stop. Every time I visit a new city, I always try to visit their zoo. I went to medical school at the Northwestern School of Medicine for two years. I didn't pursue a medical career because I couldn't stand the thought of not being able to help every patient that sought medical care.
I am a very opinionated person. I am not afraid to speak my mind, and I really don't give a rat's ass if I offend you, because I myself do not get offended. In my mind I am always right. I am also, however, very sensible. If I am wrong, I am quick to admit it. If I say I'm sorry, then I truly mean it. I don't say or do things unless I feel the need to.
I'm really not too crazy about people. I know what the human flaw is, and I dislike that everybody, myself included, has them. Of course I am assured that there is such a thing as the "right person" for me, and that helps me look past the stupidity that we call "ourselves". I love animals. Any and all. I have a dog named Mollie, who is half Sheltie and half Springer Spaniel. Ok, true story. I had a cat named Weeny, he died about a year ago. Well Weeny fathered some kittens at my mom's farm, so after he died I snatched up one of his kittens. I grabbed a female cat, and named it Persephone, after the Greek goddess. I called her Persy. One day, I discovered a pair of testicles. So I just changed the name from Persephone to Percival, so I can still call him Percy. Actually, I call him Purdy Tat. I adopted another farm cat, whose mother died shortly after weaning the kittens. Her name is Penelope, after Odysseus's wife. Penny just gave birth to two kittens, one of which I will keep for myself.
