Who am I ---hmmm. For 36 years I worked with handicapped adults and
children and spent another year work individuals with mental
illness, self abuse etc. The latter was a big challange and
exrtremely interesting. Overall, it was an intense 36 years and I
admit I ran out of gas. I found I had more issues with staff than
clients and got tired big time. Currently, I'm the night auditor at
a motel and I have a blast. Have met some really neat people
I have a daughter and grandson who are number one in my life They
keep me on my toes and current.
I made a bet many years ago with 3 high school buddies as to who
would be the last one to get married in our class. Well.....I won
the bet and the guys never paid off ....... and I'm still
I was asked at class reunions why I was single ----I shared nobody
had asked me yet. I was assured I had it backwards. Oh
I've never been all that great at self description - - guess I've
never given it much thought. I've had my ups/downs,battles and
experiences. I feel volunteering in ones community is an
opportunity and obligation we all should cherish and complete. If
not for any other reason than to help others. It can do something
for you ,too.
I find I can have a good time doing just about anything however I'm
a lousy cook - - if you teach in that area.....
Oh well, that's a short short summary - write if you have an
interest. Picture is coming.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm enjoying my life - - seems we can get to serious sometimes and
miss many opportunities. Like to volunteer in the community and
spend time with daughter and grandson. Another person to share with
would be fun.
I’m really good at
I don't think I'm really good at one thing - -unless being willing
to help others fits the category.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea........ well that may not be correct. Some notice it
right away others don't - - I wear a hair replacement 90% of the
time. I prefer to go without it in the heat of Iowa summers but
when football season comes I'm back to the hair or a cap. Some
women have preferred the hair others like the dome effect.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like various tv programs -- Mystery Theatre on public tv;
Castle;Perry Mason re-runs;Bones;Celtic Women and Celtic Thunder
concerts on Public TV. The Moody Blues and volunteering at concerts
at the Surf in Clear Lake. Like Italian and Chinese foods as well
The six things I could never do without
Family, my TV, medication(unfortunately),my dog Murphy, my sobriety
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend most of my time thinking about my family.
On a typical Friday night I am
I either work or just kick back and watch TV. If there is a concert
at the Surf I will volunteer to help. This summer I plan to golf
again ----or should I say "duff or hack" again. I used to have a
little flower garden but haven't accomplished much lately.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll get back to you.
You should message me if
Easy answer - -if you find my summary interesting and you're
curious - - I've never found communication harmful
