My self-summary
Aged 62 years to achieve maturity, this brazen little number derives its complex character from a variety of qualities which have been refined over a lifetime of experience. Mildly sweet and intriguing, with the allusion of boldness, the red seal indicates a saucy character with a slight bite. It can, however, be safely handled if allowed to breathe from time to time to enhance its zesty nature. Proper care prevents contents from turning sour. Partners well with travel, dancing, candlelight dinners & casual fireside chats while offering no bitter after taste. A refined gent with discriminating taste should not deny himself the opportunity to experience the company of this vintage creation.

I tend to start off a bit on the shy side – however - once I am comfortable around someone, I possess a personality which contains a mischievous sense of adventure, prone to do funny things when the right mood meets a good opportunity. And they say blondes have more fun. Baloney!!!

Though I’m a redhead, my nature is normally very calm & collected; an individual who thinks quickly on her feet both in stressful & fun-filled moments. I am a romantic who still can see pictures in the clouds. I love to write, travel, read, candlelight dinners & casual conversations.
Food-wise, I love to cook, with a major in Southern/country dishes & a minor in Mexican & Italian.

On a more serious note - God holds a very special place in my heart & life. Though I have had my doubting Thomas moments, I have also enjoyed some wonderful mountain top experiences with Him as well. When I look at the majestic mountains, I sense His strength. When I see the first flowers of spring, I am reminded of His promise of new opportunities. When I hold a newly born kitten in my hand, I marvel at His powers of creation. And when I hear that still, small voice comforting me when I'm sad or leading me in the right direction, I rejoice in His love for me. God blessed me with a talent for writing & I've had many say I make good use of that talent. However, when it comes to expressing all that God means to me; I have a difficult time finding the words. I suppose if I were to narrow it down to one word, the one I would choose is 'AMAZING', for He truly is!

I do avoid dating cigarette & cigar smokers due to allergies.

I'm a very strong conservative. If your political leaning is at all in the liberal direction, you would probably be better off with someone else.

What I seek in a partner:

A good-hearted man:
- who wants a committed relationship:
- enjoys the out-of-doors/mountains & camping.
- a hopeless romantic would be absolutely awesome.

- Offer void where prohibited by law.
- Batteries not included.
- Money back guarantee for a limited time only.
- Lifetime warranty, but replacement parts not available.
- One-of-a-kind model. All the usual parts and annoying habits as the more expensive name brands, but much more amusing and fun to be around.
- Must be 55 or over to play.
- Offer not valid for employees of NBC, GE or any of their affiliates.
- Will match any reasonable offer.
- Will consider barter.
- Offer subject to change.

I believe life should NOT be a journey to the grave intent on arriving safely in an attractive, well preserved body. Instead, slide in sideways with a body thoroughly worn out, screaming ‘Woo hoo – what a ride!

“Past relationships”- are exactly that - PAST. Learn from mistakes made & move on. The best is yet to come!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm enjoying life as a grandmother of seven. I also have a job I enjoy doing customer service.

I am a published author, with two romance novels on the market, in addition to 100s of articles online about historic Americans and events.
I’m really good at
Finding the silver lining in any dark cloud.
Catching people off guard with my goofy remarks.
Stopping to smell life's roses (yellow ones are my favorite).
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Since I write romance novels, a steady diet of romance novels written by others help to inspire ideas for my own stories. I also enjoy American history and biographies.

Movie-wise, I have a semi-eclectic collection. I'll probably be a Disney fan the rest of my life and have a copy of most of his popular animated classics. I also have a number of his comedies. Musicals such as Sound of Music, Singing in the Rain and Oklahoma are numbered in the collection and a few action thrillers such as Air Force One. Needless to say, a steady diet of chick-flicks is also incorporated on a regular basis to help with my writing.

Music-wise, I'm a child of the 60s to some degree, though I was not a hippie & drugs have never been a part of my life. I've heard it said we always gravitate to the music of our teen years & I'm no exception. I still love many of the groups & individuals who made up the British Invasion, in addition to artists such as the Beach Boys, Neil Diamond, Tom Jones, Barry Manilow, Elvis & Johnny Mathis.

Food-wise, I love to cook, with a major in Southern/country dishes & a minor in Mexican & Italian.
Six things I could never do without

2. Love of family & friends
3. The beauty of nature
4. Patriotism & being an American

6. Chocolate
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What the future holds - for me, my family & my beloved country.

Fridays are never 'typical' for me. Something different always seems to happen.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You do remember this is on the Internet? If I told you that here, then it wouldn't be private anymore, would it?
