My self-summary
I did 40 yrs at G.M. on Skilled Trades. 10 to 20 hrs a day, 7 days a week, month after month, year after year. Time to stop and smell the roses. So what makes me tick???? I stand out in the middle of M59 selling newspapers for the Goodfellows so we can put food on the table and gifts under the Xmas tree for those less fortunate. Still assist the Jaycees and Parks&Rec being Santa and the Easter Bunny. Go to the local hospitals Ped's wards as Santa and the Rabbit bearing stuffed animals and candy to put a smile on sick kids faces. Also go to Oakland Country Children's Village(abandoned and abused section) to drop off goodies so the kids know that somebody cares about them. My Granddaughter and I go dressed as Santa and his helper to a local nursing home delivering candy canes to the seniors. I do training sessions for Waterford Youth Assistance. Put together Walk Americas for March of Dimes. Help put on programs for Paws with a Cause so we can provide hearing and service dogs for those in need. Was a student teacher for Dale Carnegie. HOBBIES; I have way too many!!!!!!I'm a Master Gardener(Hybridize Daylilies), do silversmithing and teach a wire wrap jewelery class, hiking(all of the waterfalls in the U.P., lighthouses, and caves in Kentucky), biking(at least one hour every day); rock, fossil and mineral hunting in my motor home while touring the U.S. and Canada. X Country Skiing(Tehquamenon Falls in Feb is a truly a spectacular sight to see); Collecting Antiques(which means many hours spent at Estates&Garage sales) and I have a booth in Millington in an Antique Mall. I collect old books, McCoy cookie jars, R&R lanterns, Furniture, old farm tools and other "GOOD STUFF"!!!!! I was on the Antique roadshow when they were in Grand Rapids. Have two old cars; 1969 SS396 Camero and a 1959 Chevy Belair. Big time into the Mich Renaissance Festival held in Holly(Wizard, viking and a number of other costumes). I have two dogs and two cats. And in my spare time(NOT)!!!!!!! SO WHO AM I LOOKING FOR???? Someone who isn't a couch potato!!!!! Not afraid to get her hands(or fingernails) dirty playing in the flowers. Someone to share quiet dinners; moonlight strolls along the beach holding hands; laying on a blanket cuddled up with each other taking in Gods spectacular show in the nighttime sky; someone to stomp in mud puddles with after a rainstorm; someone to snuggle up on the couch with to watch a movie or to just sit close with while reading a good book; sitting out on the lake all day soaking up the sunshine while drowning worms(fishing). But you have to put your own worms on!!!! Well, I guess I could do that for you but it will cost you at least a kiss for every worm!!!!!! Lets just hope that the fish are really biting!!!!! To share lifes ups and downs. The smiles and the tears, the hugs and the kisses, holding hands and being close as we stroll thru what ever life might bring us and making love till dawn!!!!!! If that's not too much to ask for than I'd love to hear from you. Please, if you're a smoker don't reply!!!!
