Just viewed the "Silver Linings" movie. Made me realize that there is no such thing as "Normal". Normal is a judgement in each one of our heads. We just need to accept/appreciate the differences in each other and be a little less critical.
Friends say that I look younger than I am and they are lying. '-)
I’m a slightly weathered, very active 57 year old who moved to Huntington Beach 23 years ago from San Francisco. Helped raise 3 kids that “Grew up at Disneyland and the Beach”. All 4 are grown, gone, and doing very well on their own.
Now is time to concentrate on woodwork 3.0.
What is on your bucket list? Maybe our lists are similar. Here are a few from mine: I’ve been to Canada but have not seen the Northern Lights. I’ve been to Hawaii but have not walked the black sands. I’ve hiked Mt. Whitney, Half Dome and Mt. Fuji but have not hiked Kilimanjaro (you don’t have to hike this but please be ready when I get home). I’ve been Scuba diving in Catalina, Hawaii, Tobago, St. Kitts, and Cozumel, but have not been diving on the Great Barrier Reef, Belize or Fiji. Are you ready to travel?
I think my mom, dad and sisters did a good job teaching me how to treat a woman and I’ve done my best to pass that on to my sons. They did have a problem when I’d hold them by the back of the collar while encouraging them to let their little sister through the door first. They are now gentlemen. I will treat you the same.
I’ve been accused of having an easy life. My answer to that is that I’ve made good decisions. There is a very high correlation between good choices and the quality of life that one has. It is making the best with the hand that you are dealt. I was dealt a good hand and I’ve made it better. My next draw (you?) will make the winning hand complete.
I have a hard time sitting still but am always up for long walks on the beach. Hikes in the OC or LA hills are excellent too. I'd like to learn to cook more than scrambled eggs so I might need some coaching beyond that. Popcorn and a movie at home are always great and I’m looking forward to visiting the Columbus Symphony
I'm a good listener and may even provoke some thought. I have a good thought process and am quite logical. Yes, that sometimes gets in the way. I'm pretty good with my hands, can fix things, and, I'll rub your feet.
I am emotionally and financially stable. I don't drink by choice, you can if you choose. I'm only addicted to chocolate.
