My self-summary
I'm enjoying life. I am an optimist; my glass is always half (at least) full. I can entertain myself. There are always lots to do and many books to read. BUT... I would like to meet someone special to share life with. I have a "bucket list" of hopes and dreams and I'm sure you do too.

I am happy, friendly and young at heart.
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying retirement! Traveling, taking classes, trying new things. Love having time to do what I want and spending time with friends!
I’m really good at
The first things people usually notice about me
I look and think younger than I am. I spent the last 20 years of my career working with a much younger group and they have given me a different perspective on many things.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Hard to pick my favorite book... I read voraciously :)
Mostly I read novels and mysteries, however I am working in a classic every month.
Movies: My favorite has always been "Gone With the Wind." More recently I loved "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" and "The Descendants" (no surprise that I loved the scenery). I don't like violent, scary, dumb...but I do like to see whatever is up for an award.
Music: country, popular vocals... I'm not much into classical.
Food: Mexican food is my favorite! I don't like sushi or squishy green vegetables (that includes broccoli). I like to cook and I like to eat out, fast food to gourmet and in between.
Six things I could never do without
1) My children and grandchildren
2) Travel
3) Friends (that includes my family, a large group of cousins who are also my closest friends)
4) Coffee
5) Books
6) Still thinking.... could it be you?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I would like to travel next.
On a typical Friday night I am
... depends what is happening...
I could be curled up with a good book, out playing Bunco with "the girls", or ???
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Privacy means not telling .... and not telling strangers!
You should message me if
You are a man in my age group who is not looking for a mother or a 20 year old girlfriend. I am pretty independent and I would expect you to be the same. We should have basic values in common, but there should be enough differences to give us a basis for conversation! You should be a happy person who enjoys the company of a woman, but does not need her to complete him. Fairy tales are fun, but not real... are you my real "Prince Charming?"
The two of us
