My self-summary
I see myself as thoughtful and caring. These qualities plus a good amount of patience were refined by the young children I taught during a 29 year career. Thanks kids!
I believe I have a good sense of humor. People, at least have the grace to laugh at my attempts to be funny!
I am pretty independent. I've done a fair amount of solo traveling but like most mammals I prefer the company of another.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to figure out this retirement thing! I've done some traveling, which I love. I combine that with my inerest in photography. I enjoy my yard and I try to workout 3-4 times a week. I've explored some volunteer work but haven't yet really found anything that suits me.
Spending time with my grandchildren is always fun.
I’m really good at
I'm pretty intuitve and can usually key in to someone's feelings. Is that a good thing?
The first things people usually notice about me
I can be pretty quiet in a crowd. Once I get the vibe of those around me, I open up more.
Oh yeah, people notice my full head of white hair!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read mostly historical fiction and non-fiction. My favorite movies currently are Lincoln, Argo and Silver Linings Playbook. I was rooting for LIncoln to win best picture.
I have to say I'm still into the music of the 60's and 70's. I generally like the music of today with the exception of rap and heavy metal.
I'll eat just about anything! Portland has so may good ethnic restaurants, I'm anxious to try them all!
Six things I could never do without
My family, laughter, books, good food, loyal friends the beauty of nature.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My family and friends, my photography, my next travel adventure.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm playing poker with my friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That'll be up to you to find out (:
You should message me if
If any of the above makes any sense to you at all! Even if it doesn't, message me anyway. I always like a good message!
The two of us
