I love the outdoors, nature and animals. I grew up with horses, lots of dogs, and 5 other kids. Dad was a researcher so it was an intellectual household. I like being part of a team, in all phases of my life. I can stand on my own two feet and be independent, but interdependent by choice is far better! I have done lots of very diverse jobs, have just retired and started a small business. I'm looking forward to the next phase of my life. I don’t mind getting my hands dirty and I clean up pretty well. I am still kind of new to the area, and am having a great time exploring and meeting new people. I have made some wonderful friends in the Northwest. I am a drama free zone. I make every effort not to participate in drama, mine or anyone else's, for drama's sake. I like life a lot better this way...
Movies - Chick flicks, science fiction, action and comedies. I'm up for almost anything but horror. Not into that kind of gore...
Music - Love live music and have been known to travel to get it. Went to Clapton's Crossroads Festival in Chicago 2010, met friends at Red Rocks summer 2013 for a classic rock show and made a December 2013 trip to NYC for more music with friends. I'm planning next years music and travel now. I've been revisiting my rock and blues roots of late, but I throw my musical arms pretty wide. Van Morrison, The Waterboys, Porcupine Tree, Keb' Mo', Eagles, Sabbath, Etta James, Zappa, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, Charlie Parker, Seven Mary Three, Buddy Guy, Clapton, that sort of thing. Love Jazz, Americana, just about anything but rap & hip-hop.
