A little about me...
I just turned 63 and spent 1/3 of my life raising my 4 sons. They are the light of my life and I totally enjoyed every minute, but they are all grown and my youngest just graduated from college. It's time I returned to what I want to do, and that is:
1) I love music, especially live concerts and plan to see as many as I can. That's not as easy as you might think unless you live in Iowa. I did score 4 tickets, center stage, row 7 for Lynard Skynard at the Iowa State Fair in August. Can't wait.
I also go to Aspen in October to celebrate the life and music of John Denver, my favorite singer.
2) I used to dance all of the time. I miss it and want to find a partner.
3) I used to play Bridge, but haven't played in years. Time for me to find a partner.
4) I enjoy gardening and I'm looking forward to a great crop this summer.
5) I love to cook and entertain my friends. Summer gives my a chance to grill and enjoy being outdoors.
About the one I'm looking for...
Im looking for a mature man who still believes that age is only a number, and not prescription for behavior.
I am affectionate and need affection from my partner.
I am looking for a man who will treat me as a lady and an equal.
He must be intelligent,and active, and like the things that I want to re-discover. I am open to new things also, and will try most things that don't threaten life and limb.
I have three dog; a Westie, a Standard Poodle, and a Weimaraner who are now the center of my life. If you don't love dogs, don't respond.
I think that a physical attraction is important, so if you don't have a photo, don't respond.
I can't tolerate smoking, so if you do, I won't respond.
Also, please know who you are and what you want. At this age I don't have the patience to wade through "I'll tell you later."
If you love music, dancing, dogs,good food and wine, being with friends, enjoy a game of Bridge or any other game, the outdoors and gardening, Please give me a call.
I'd just like to add...
I enjoy cooking and trying new recipes. I enjoy sharing good food and good wine with friends. Trying a new restaurant is an adventure. I love Top Chef on TV almost as much as Dancing with the Stars. That's the extent of my reality TV.
I love life and experiencing all that the world has to offer.
I am passionate about giving back. I have been blessed with a fortunate life and feel that it is my responsibility to give back to others. I volunteer with a local non-profit, Table to Table, a food rescue organization, and also serve on the Board of Directors. This is a very important aspect of my personality. I would expect my partner to have similar attitude towards philanthropy.
