Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I enjoy music, cooking, swimming and simple home projects. The
outdoors appeal to me and I have traveled somewhat extensively.
When at home in Trinidad & Tobago I spend a lot of time in the
yard, checking my fruit trees, gardening and swimming at the beach.
However, I am pretty much living in Maryland with my grand
I play around with a little Spanglish. No escribo muy bien. Pero
quiero hablar la lengua rapido antes de mi muerta. ha, ha. Which
says that I cannot write Spanish very well and wish to speak the
language fluently before I die. Visited Ecuador a few times and was
able to communicate well enough.
I see people as they are and for who they are and not what they
are. I am quite affectionate and a good conversationalist and look
for the same qualities in a mate.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I travel back and forth between the US and Trinidad and Tobago. I
go swimming at a local sports arena. I am involved in Senior Care
periodically which is much less strenuous or stressful as opposed
to teaching little children.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Striking up conversations and appreciating the interests of others.
I enjoy gardening and have many different types of tropical fruit
trees (especially mango) and citrus. I also enjoy refinishing old
furniture, dabble with faux painting and repainting pottery.

I enjoy all types of food. Seafood is at the top of my list and I
enjoy Italian, Mexican, American, Cuban and Brazilian foods. Music
that's soothing, R&B, country western, some opera, instrumental
like Henry Mancini, Kenny G and so on. Books: Snow Job: Canada, the
United States and Vietnam (1954 to 1973) by Charles Taylor. I read
this book many years ago while secluded in Africa (Jos, Nigeria --
will never go back there) and found it very fascinating. There are
a number of books I read like To Kill A Mockingbird, Elizabeth of
Toro, Chernobyl, The Covenant by James Michner and others. I enjoy
drama, adventure, suspense and romance and reality shows.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sunshine, fresh air, water, my family, independence and YOU when I

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I've just started thinking about the above question. Seriously

day and good health.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
