I've been told I'm smart and have a good sense of humor, plus I
look and act much younger than my years. I'm playful and enjoy
I grew up in the New York metropolitan area and went to an
experimental high school in the Berkshires. I then went to a small
college in Kentucky, taught in NYC briefly and changed career
directions by going to the NY School for Interior Design, moved to
California in 1974 and worked as a Designer/Salesperson for Gump's
in San Francisco for many years. I have also owned my own food
distribution business. But now I'm retired except for an occasional
decorating job. So, presently my passion in life is to see as much
of the world as I can before I'm done.
My husband passed away in early 2007 and I long for the closeness,

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
When I take on a project, whatever it is, I like to do it to the

My favorite foods are Italian, Chinese and Thai. I like many kinds
of music, especially going to concerts. Some of the types are
Country, Easy Listening, Oldies, some show tunes, some jazz, some
instrumentals. A book that I read many years ago made a great

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I will be doing the rest of my life, and with whom.
On a typical Friday night I am
