I prefer Bill Maher over Bill O'Reilly, a Prius over a pickup, Kauai over Cancun (but that's ok too!) and love to travel to foreign and exotic lands (spent my 60th in Sicily), and I'm hoping to go to Morocco, and Machu Picchu in the next year or so. I also love weekend getaways. Give me any beach (Sea Ranch will do) and a trashy novel, and I am just fine, thank you. I love the warmer days to bike on the bike trail, hike (Tahoe anyone?), play tennis, and river raft (not all in one day, but 1/2 of those, maybe). I also enjoy the Sacramento dining scene (the times they are a changing), good wine, good contemporary jazz, Sunday morning breakfasts, and of course, NPR.
I'd like to think my baggage is light enough to take on the plane.
I still stay in close contact with my 32-year stepson, an awesome kid (if I do say so myself) who I helped raise, and who is a rising star in a San Francisco law firm.
I plan to retire in 2 years and can't wait to travel more internationally, play more tennis, and volunteer for causes near and dear to me.
So, if you share some of the same values and activities as me, let me know you are out there.
