A little about me...
Positive, well-grounded, artistic; with a good sense of humor. I like to laugh. Interested in broadening my travel experiences as I am now retired. Enjoy good conversation. Happy person who enjoys good friends, family and healthy food.
Walk and exercise regularly. I enjoy helping people in my sister's store and exploring working with veterans and their families. Love music (jazz, rhythm and blues, oldies, easy listening, folk), traveling and exploring new places, reading mysteries or adventure books, going to the movies, playing board games and cards, doing puzzles, eating/ cooking good food, and being part of a good conversation.
I enjoy gardening. I have had a large vegetable garden. I enjoyed canning and freezing the food that we grew. I was a County Fair Judge and Superintendent of fruits, grains and vegetables as well as a crafts judge. I enjoy spending evenings with family and friends cooking, sharing a good glass of wine, watching a movie or having a good conversation.
About the one I'm looking for...
Looking for a companion and friend with a sense of humor who is willing to explore if there is an interest and to share more than friendship. I would like meet someone who is positive, has a good sense of humor, enjoys life, and is financially sound.
