My self-summary
I am who I am ....an honest, sincere and very caring person, who loves to laugh and have fun, but also appreciates a good bantering session if only to match wits at times... After living in Southern California for 35 years, I returned to my home town of Akron, Ohio. Though widowed for several years, I've been blessed with a wonderful daughter who's married and has two precious children that I adore. My professional history evolves mostly around sales and marketing. I was a sales and catering manager in the hotel industry(and loved it) for many years, then changed hats and have been selling insurance for the past 12 years. Hey, enough about me. I'd much rather hear about you!
What I’m doing with my life
Looking to kick start the next chapter of my life and would love to share the future with a kindred spirit.
I’m really good at
Being a friend and confidant, "cutting to the chase and telling it like it is", playing scrabble, and can whip up some pretty delicious meals!
The first things people usually notice about me
My candor and/or my good sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books: Anything by Grisham, Baldacci, Patterson, Alice Sebold, Jeanette Walls, Eli Weisel and more.
Movies: Cider House Rules, Bird Cage, Deer Hunter, A Beautiful Mind, Shine, The Piano, Rain Man, As Good as It Gets, Thelma and Louise, All That Jazz and much more.
Not much for TV other than: AC360, Y&R, Scandal, American Idol, Discovery ID, Letterman.
Love most kinds of foods but my favorites are: Sushi, Thai, Mexican, Italian and sometimes deli. Not much for lima beans, beets or rich sauces.
I love good jazz, classic rock, reggae, pop, old standards and some classical and folk. Not much for rap or country.
Six things I could never do without
Freedom to choose.....
My senses: to smell the roses, taste something wonderful, listen to great music, see the beauty in life, and to touch and be touched

Six things I could do without are:

Phone solicitors
Rap music
Loud cell phone users in public
Rude drivers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Traveling to distant places, and anticipating just how to proceed with "retired" life. Also considering a part-time stint to finance those fantasy "getaways".
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading a good book after enjoying shabbos dinner..maybe watching Discovery ID or Letterman...very quiet...more quiet than I prefer actually.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm still into astrology...over 40 years now...not obsessed, but just curious and observant of tendancies.
You should message me if
You're interested in a plump, witty, not-half-bad looking, quirky gal who can keep you smiling and who loves to have fun, cook, explore and share---you're still reading??? Well, then you just may want to take a chance.
The two of us
