About my life and what I'm looking for - I have been fortunate to have been able to raise two amazing kids (yes, everyone's kids are amazing) follow my photography passion, experience new cultures here and around the world, publish two books, and finally, after age 65, become comfortable with public speaking. Adventures of any kind are interesting and no day is complete without at least one. Dancing in the rain works, but not sitting around the TV watching sports and drinking beer. OK, OK! Sometimes. Mum's the word.
Hope you are upbeat, enjoy banter, love adventure, are flexible, love kids and animals but not obsess over them, have a long fuse, and tolerate bad puns (redundant you say?).
Spontaneity blends zest and shared adventure. Cuddling is like good cholesterol (HDL) and recommended daily. Openness is veggies. Ideas are nectar. Humor is a healthy heart.
