October 2013 Yesterday my son mentioned my being nearly 70. I am not even nearly 69. Time is going fast enough, let's not speed things up. When I get close, I will then own my age.
September 2013 I think I need to clear this boat thing up. Yes I do live on a boat, not a lifestyle, just simple expedience. Why move to a new location and spend too much for an apartment that you may hate when I can get by quite nicely on something I already own. Don't expect a partner to join me on the boat. It just makes sense until life takes me wherever it is going to.
August 2013 Whoo Hoo and another milestone. I got my new knee. I'm Bionic. Needed one as the result of an auto accident in 1977. New knee works really well, already more flexibility and comfort in just a month. Dancing, maybe. Hiking, camping, walking and all the other associated mobility issues that I have missed out on are now possible. Knee is ugly, I will never be picked as a knee model .
May 2013 Happy Dance!!!! finally made it to Vancouver. Moved the boat from Friday Harbor to just east of 205 and have set up housekeeping in my new marina. Great view, quiet, comfortable, now I couldn't justify dating until I got relocated, but now that I am "home" I can see how this dating thing works.
Each individual on these e-dating pages has a story to be told. The information in our profiles is just the table of contents. No one will know the story until the cover is opened and the book is read.
I used to sing bass with a barbershop chorus and quartet. Miss singing, may look for someone to sing with.
By the way, it seems that the pull date for guys seems to be 60 or at best 65. I would change my age but that is not kosher. So 68 it is and I still have a lot of shelf life left. Having had my kids late in life, I am far younger than the numbers indicate.
I am sort of retired but still work nearly full time on my own schedule presenting environmental education workshops.
I have 3 great kids to justify the first part of my life. Would love to know what the next part will bring. I have no preconceived notions about what is next. I have no desire to mold another to fit my wants. Everyone is an individual and should be enjoyed as such. Life is an adventure and should be enjoyed as such, with others.
I hate that I smoke and am trying to quit.
I can live alone, but I am not really complete without someone to share everyday things with. Would love a good regular conversation. I would love to share observations, comments, humor and the state of the world with someone else. Talking to myself tends to shorten my words. I miss syllables.
I lived in Friday Harbor the last 19 years, raised 3 kids here but all three are now in Portland.
I live on a boat in Steamboat marina so I am close to moving lock,stock and boat to Vancouver, WA.
I don't intend to live on a boat forever but it works for now. Want to be closer to my kids. They seem to tolerate me well and would like me closer.
Those that state that you shouldn't have any baggage are unrealistic.
Like everyone, I have baggage but I have tried to have mine unpacked. Everyone has baggage - it is what makes us who we are.
