Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like the woods at night, the stars, trees, wind--it's safer then
Chicago during the day!! I love to drive my car, anywhere, anytime,
such as for MOW--it's great on gas, and it plays Sirius radio!! I
love my horses (3); they've known me longer than some of my
friends. I laugh a lot, for appropriate and inappropriate reasons,
and I'll cry if I hit a bird while I'm driving. I try to understand
everyone's reasonable point of view, but if it doesn't include
empathy, it won't carry as much weight. This photo was taken 11/11
and since then I have lost about 25 lbs, mostly going to the Rush
and keeping very busy after my knee surgery.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am retired, but as my friend Mandie says 'I'm the busiest retired
person she's ever known'. I always have a list of projects, but now
I say 'There's always tomorrow to finish'.
I am making this old, 1907 farm house, a 'Funky' house, not a
showplace, but a comfortable, fun place to have people for dinner,
sit in front of the wood stove and cuddle, or have a big party!! I
did have knee surgery in November, going to the Rush as well as
physical therapy, I am now in great shape.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Well, if you started at the beginning this will come as no
surprise, I am a good driver!! Also good at making project lists
and getting things done relatively quick. I love to cook, my key
lime pie is requested--and chili is always different, but good! And
probably most important is I'm a good listener.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair!! I once had a woman, in Pgh., grab my hair because she
thought it was a wig!! It's always been curly, but as a teenager, I
ironed it to look more like Twiggy!! Remember her? Also, I've been
told I don't look my age!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love Carl Hiassen books, and historical novels
I pretty much love action w/Bruce Willis--I know, silly, but it's
the reluctant hero that's so much fun
Music can get me up and dancing, singing (you might not want to
hear that), and just doing things--Sting, Pink Floyd, CSN &
Young, Wood Brothers, George Benson, David Gray-(should I go
Food- I do love good chocolate, especially dark, and spicy beans
w/vegetables, so many possibilities.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Mountains (including the trees and birds)
2. Clean water (every living thing needs it)
3. Clean air (thanks EPA)
4. My little Ford Fiesta
5. My horses, as long as they shall live
6. My family and friends (maybe that's really 7, but I
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Who i am. What i want and don't want. The state of politics today
and what i can do about it. The severe shortage of water in CA. and
so many other places. The IRS. Accounting. Can i really do all of
this work myself? ? Do birds have thoughts.
Wow, i need to stop thinking! !
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There's so many different things to do! I could go to Magnolia Rays
w/my friend, or I could try combing all the burrs out of my horses
manes and tails, or I could read, watch a movie(dvd), or make a
list for what I need to do over the weekend, which is an
interesting concept since I am retired.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't know how to flirt--according to my sister and good
I've just never learned. Sometimes Mandie and I will be at the
Arboretum or somewhere, and after we talk with a gentleman, She'll
say 'he was flirting with you'--News to me!! I guess because I
don't flirt, I also don't pick up on it !!
