Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a widow, mother of two, grandmother of three. I have deep WNC
roots. I love my mountains and travel the Blue Ridge Parkway often.
I also love the ocean, the Outer Banks is my favorite place to be,
even if I don't get there often. I also enjoy our local lakes. I
live in my jeans although I can dress the as perfect conservative
housewife when needed (which I am not!). I clean up pretty good
actually. I hate makeup and use it very sparingly but if it's
needed to impress someone I can do a decent job... I also have a
pretty good sense of humor and love to laugh.
I started recreational kayaking last spring and I love it, although
I have not tried whitewater yet. The lakes are fine with me.
I guess I am fairly easy to get along with. I keep getting the
message from the bot I need to answer more things as important but
a lot of things aren't. I can deal with a lot of things if the
right connection is there. Life is too short to sweat the small
I don't like indoor crowds, bars, or malls. I could probably say I
just don't like being around a lot of people unless it is at an
outside venue such as flea markets or festivals or similar events.
I can handle it, I just prefer to avoid them.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am working on enjoying life and being present in the moment.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I find this part difficult as I don't like to "toot my own horn",
so to speak. I am generally good with words. I love doing research
on any subject. I like to debate and have been known to play
devil's advocate for fun.
I am good with animals and animals generally love me on
I have a "gift" for listening to people's problems and, usually,
being able to say the right thing. I am accepting of people. I can
see both sides of most issues, (which has caused me no end of grief
at times as there are usually many more than two sides).

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I am very eclectic in my tastes. I love to read and read a wide
variety of books. No romances however. I am fairly selective
regarding tv. I do not have cable or satellite at this time and
don't miss it at all. I do enjoy a few sitcoms and crime dramas, no
reality shows. I enjoy a movie occasionally but I would rather
I enjoy music of all types. I listen to WQUT in the car, Celtic
while working out, and whatever suits my mood at home. I don't
enjoy Italian Opera or rap but I can listen to them.
When it comes to food I prefer good old southern comfort food but I
am open to trying new things.
Books: Anything by Agatha Christie, Hitchhikers Guide..., ahh geez

TV: Dr. Who (fanatic) , Big Bang Theory, NCIS, Perception, The

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
What a difficult question...
My family is the first on my list...
Companionship of other people occasionally
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
A variety of odd, and not so odd, things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Listening to live music at a local Deli/Market until about 8 then
home. Or working.
