A little about me...
In the last seven years I have been through hell and back again. I moved to Austin from the Galveston area, where I lived in the beach for 25 years. I came up here because my sons and granddaughter were here, and they still are. I enjoy them so much. Unfortunately, my plans didn't work out quite as I expected. Right after I bought my great house with pool in Lakeway, I started having pain in my left leg, and discovered I needed a hip replacement. I'm going to make along story very short. I just had my fourth hip surgery a month ago. Hopefully it will be the last. I'm doing fine and getting stronger every day. I still love going to concerts, live music, museums, festivals, antiques, flea markets, movies, reading...all of the things I came up here to do, but that I haven't had a chance to really enjoy. I'm ready to try again. It's lonely and depressing living alone in an apartment. I'm looking to get out and meet people, do things that are interesting and fun, and laugh and maybe even love again! I haven't given up on life!! Not at all. I just need to meet the right person who will drag me back to my happy place. Is is you?
About the one I'm looking for...
Fun, funny, outgoing, spontaneous, intelligent. Likes traveling, discovering new places near and far.Love local dives and five star restaurants. Not big drinker, but you enjoy wine or a cocktail occasionally. MUST must be able to laugh. A LOT! Also need to be open to adventure and to new experiences. Sense of HUMOR is imperative.
My peeves: No photo, no response, no exceptions. This is how we find out if you are cross-eyed, toothless or have one hair you wind all around your head, PLEASE be capable of writing a coherent profile--some of the profiles on here are next to impossible to read, as they make no sense; and please be able to spell! This is the first glance I will have of you, and I was an English major, so it's really important to me. Get help if you need it. This is NOT cheating! If you live 4,000, miles away. I probably won't write back unless you own a jet. Lastly, please write your own message. I hate those canned ones. They are so cold!
I'd just like to add...
I love animals! I love to laugh! I love to travel! I put more emphasis on having a small, well-designed and attractive place than on having a big house and lots of land. (Not that this is a BAD thing!!!) I have some physical limitations, as I had to have several hip and back surgeries in the last few years. You wouldn't know it by looking at me, but don't ask me to participate in a marathon or rock climbing. However, this doesn't keep me down. I have a part-time job at a major department store, I travel, and I'm far from a homebody. I have volunteered at an animal shelter. More than anything I enjoy adventure of all kinds. Send me a message. I'd love to hear from you!

I love the "treasure hunt" and love shopping for antiques and collectibles. Anything "odd" is of interest to me
I LOVE, LOVE to travel, especially to Mexico and Central America. I would even love to retire there, as some of my friends are there.
