Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was so glad to leave Cleveland and go off to college. But now,
after some forty years, I am so happy to be back, where I belong,
right here in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. After BGSU, I taught school
in Kettering, Ohio, got a Masters from Miami University, then off
to Michigan as a college administrator, picked up the EdS from
Wayne State, then for twenty-three years an Assistant Principal at
the high school level. Then I spent a dozen years in Lexington, KY
in private education and finally retired and went to work at a
Lowes Home Center as a sales consultant. My first marriage lasted
for 25 years and my second marriage lasted for a dozen years. I
came back to the Cleveland area to be closer to one of my three
daughters and to be HOME!!!!
I am living in the Cedar/Fairmont District of Cleveland Heights and
LOVE IT. Things I really enjoy: Being outdoors, horseback riding
(Western), collecting rock & Minerals, romping with a dog, and
bicycling to new places. Also thoroughly enjoy parks and museums,
old antique shops and big garage sales. I have written a short,
true story, "Terror In Yellowstone Park." I am also somewhat
artistic, having deigned and sold many stain-glass panels. I have
also done artistic painting and have even sold some items.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am doing my best to stay healthy. I do volunteer work twice a
week at University hospital, delivering gifts, balloons and flowers
to patients throughout the hospital system. I LOVE to bicycle &
walk places and ride the RTA bus system since I voluntarily gave up
driving. :-( BUT I am trying to learn Tango & Salsa dancing!!!!
(Ha, what a stitch). I also do volunteer work whenever possible at
MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art), and walking a Yellow Lab (Titan)
twice a week for a local physician.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Counseling others over their relationship issues, listening, public
speaking and making others laugh. I'm also really good at hiding my
minor disabilities: poor eyesight and minor hearing loss: (SCUBA
diving & explosion) I'm also good at making travel plans (Have
Passport, will travel) Been to Germany twice and once to Austria
and The Czech Republic.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a welcoming smile, am slow to speak, and know how to listen
well..... Since I voluntarily choose to give up driving as a safely
measure for others and myself, because of low vision, be advised of
the following: In accordance with the “Fair Dating Disclosure Act
(FDDA) of 2012,” I disclose that I am not a driver and therefor
unable to just swing by and pick up my date for an exciting event,
but also I am willing to go by bus, train or plane to meet up with
the woman of my dreams....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I enjoy reading on my Kindle, and have read most all of Clive
Cussler's Books. One of my daughters and I have created a
Father/Daughter Book Club, and we enjoy discussing the books we
read together. Once in a while I enjoy reading a really trashy
novel. I also read anything I can get my hands on about The Civil
War and the North American Indians, the true, original Americans. I
like Leonard Cohen, I like to sing and whistle because I am a very
happy person. Oh, and I also have every piece ever produced by Anne
Murray who I feel should be our next President!!!
My one daughter is encouraging me to become a vegetarian, but I
don't want to give up fish. I am also trying to teach myself the
violin. I love it!!!! I also like dogs. . Yellow Labs are high on
my list of favorites. I like hobbies. . Over the years I have
collected Indian artifacts, been an Amateur Radio Operator and
collected rocks and minerals. I like the outdoors, and feel very
comfortable hiking even with a campus.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) The love of my three daughters
2) Positive contact with others.
4) My HP Laptop
5) My new iPhone 6:-)
6) Smiles from my grandkids
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How fortunate I am to be here in the East Cleveland area. And how
fortunate I am to have three daughters who love and enjoy each
other and want to spend time with each other. Also I like thinking
about and planning for train trips throughout Canada and the Wild
West. Oh, and I like to think about the next venture of maybe
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Wishing I was with someone special, a woman who would enjoy hanging
out, going for a bike ride or maybe a long walk and would like to
spend the rest of the evening/night perhaps cuddling or discussing
political issues (Ha!).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Most private is . . . private, but
I am a poor speller...... :-)
