My self-summary
My Dad used to introduce me to his friends that way... "This is my baby, Mary Jo. She's been self sufficient since the age of two!!" Nothing I won't try to accomplish on my own. I'm grateful for every time Dad said that.

I've known love. Real love. The kind where you lie in bed at night and say to each other "How did I get so LUCKY?" And then in a fleeting moment, it's gone. Nothing I did. No conflict or rejection. Both of my husbands died within a nine year span. Back to square one.

And so I dream. (anyone who places value on "The Wizard of Oz" MUST be some kind of romantic!) Of finding another relationship like that. Finding a considerate man that would enjoy my company. Travel. Local entertainment. The mundane experience of growing old together. I treasure appropriate quotes, and this one is a favorite: "If life can remove someone you never thought of losing, it can replace them with someone you never thought of having." My mind and heart are open to the possibilities. Are you out there?
What I’m doing with my life
I used to design kitchens for Lowe's in Salem to keep the creditors away. It was always a pleasure to inspire others to build the space of their dreams. I retired when I moved to Washington. Too many fun places up here to see and do!

The new place has only a third of an acre... I left the llamas in Oregon. I still have quite a bit of renovating to complete- I'll be busy with my nail gun and tile saw for quite a while. Still planning the landscape, my first priority outside will be edible gardens.

I treasure each opportunity I have to give back to the community. My favorite charity is the local Fire station- I look forward to dropping off garbage bags full of toys for the local kids each Christmas.
I’m really good at
Home improvement. Kissing. Reaching the top shelf in the grocery store. Finding great travel deals. Tying cherry stems into knots with my tongue.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height. My smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Book- "The Art of Racing in the Rain". Movies: "The Wizard of Oz" and "The Bucket List". "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and "On Golden Pond". Shows: "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal". Music- it's an eclectic mix of Toby Keith, Journey and Coldplay. (no jazz or rap). Food- Anything that swims- crab, lobster, rainbow trout. Chocolate.
Six things I could never do without
Companionship. A vehicle. A credit card. Electricity. Chocolate. Kisses lasting longer than 10 seconds.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Finding a new long-term companion. Looking at profiles on line, and wondering why people post blurry, grainy, crooked or otherwise uncomplimentary photos of themselves. Looking at same photos and wishing I could give these people a haircut or shave...
And then once we meet- why on earth couldn't they be HONEST? Eight year old photos are misleading. Living with your Ex should have been disclosed. So should your 4 year old kid.
Also wondering why people who have quit searching leave their profiles on line for us serious lookers to waste our time on.
Wondering where my next adventure will be.
On a typical Friday night I am
When you are retired, no day is ever "typical"! It's FRIDAY???
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've never seen The Game of Thrones!
You should message me if
You're looking for a sincere, honest, respectable and trustworthy companion who loves to laugh. You are looking for more than a bed partner. You don't have any ex wives under your roof. You like to travel. You are TALL. I'm not comfortable with shorter men. 6'2"+ is my comfort level.
