I was an educator for 30 years and fortunate to have had a variety of positions. I loved being a teacher, hanging out with kids, and sharing my love of learning.
In my personal life I’m more laid back. I like to have fun, but sometimes welcome an instigator. Sitting on the deck and watching the scenery is wonderful. I'm fortunate to be in good health although I've always battled with a few extra pounds. Family is important to me and I like spending time with my daughters and grandsons. I'm pretty down to earth, but do enjoy the finer things in life.
I like to drink coffee in the morning while visiting with a friend. I’ve been able to travel around the United States a lot, but would love to go other places and back to some of my favorites. Watching a good show, either live or on TV, cooking for others, snuggling, and laughing are some of my favorite things.
After meeting a few men I've learned that we probably won't be a good match if you are a smoker, not truthful, married, a conservative or live far away. You should look elsewhere.
Cooking awesome, healthy meals
Caring about my world and community
TV and movies: romantic comedy and cop shows, Big Bang Theory, lots of things
Radio: public radio and oldies stations
Books: historical fiction, biographies, mysteries, an occasional romance novel
Food: there's not much I don't like and can't cook. It's just a lot healthier than it used to be
