My family members are special to me and we've stayed close over the years. My brother is in Oak Park should the animals need attention (he's a vet), my sister is in Agoura, my Aunt and Uncle are in Oxnard with the beach for a back yard where we string a volleyball net each Thanksgiving. We all see each other weekly and have a lot of fun. I'm the only one not married, and admit that I miss being in love. Hope you don't mind, but I never let a dog pass by without saying hello. Can't imagine not having some four legged creatures around me, and feel blessed just to be in their presence. Have you ever wondered what the world would be like if people were even half as noble as dogs? It's a very nice feeling to see all the rescued dogs as pets on this site.
I hope you have a nice smile, and a sense of humor. People tell me I'm funny. I'm an attentive, considerate, patient and thoughtful person who loves to share. I even get excited about sharing. The sense of humor is definitely dry, and at times even a little over the top, but hey! Aren't we supposed to be having fun? At least I'm playful.
Cycling, photography, and birding are favorites; have recently been doing more hiking as one sees more birds and animals than when cycling. I could tell you just about anything you might like to (hopefully) know about North American birds. A year ago September spent 10 days in Denali National Park. It was quite a treat to be able to photograph wild Grizzlies, Caribou, Dahl, Sheep, and Black Billed Magpies. Others proved to be a little more elusive to photograph, e.g.; Golden Eagles, but they were still magnificent to see. Last May spent six days all off road into Death Valley where I first drove up, then hiked the rest of the way up into 5 different canyons; one each day. You'll find me open to other things as well. When am I serious? When it counts. You can believe me when I say I'll do something ... ... I always do it. Like a dog, I am loyal and true. :)
