A little about me...
Obviously, if I have maintained a passion for teaching all this time, I can put care and passion into other things. Friends think I am a vivid personalty and also know my halo isn't always as shinny as it should be. I can have a wicked sense of humor and sometimes sound a little bossy because I've been a teacher so long. I hate cruelty or stupidity. Older paents, 2 daughters (20/26) a new grandbaby, 11 nephews and neieces, and job concerns have kept the pace busy.
So, I would really enjoy leasure travel, a nice meal out, or just cuddle time at home. ( think I remember cuddle time).
I have been brought up to be a traditional Southern church lady. I've traveled quite a bit but kids and parents have had me a bit tied down for the last couple of years. I'm anxious to get back out in "the world" I've been from Russia to Branson and can enjoy both equally--I just need someone who is okay with me being me and you being you.
About the one I'm looking for...
Yes, it's true. I'm looking for an older man. After 20+ years of teacing 17 year olds, I need some adult companionship. You know the type, someone who can look you in the eye (mine are hazel geen by the way) talk to you in person or on the phone--not text at the speed of light. Some one who could talk about a good book or movie without making gagging sounds.
Because I can be a wee bit competitive, I need someone who is comfortable in his own skin (someone who could not only withstand me being ejected from a ballgame but could give me a hand on the way out--that has only happened if someone I knew was playing--like my kids or students and it was a really bad call)
Look at my picture, I'm not tiny and petite. I'm more the Jayne Mansfield look. I look like a real woman. . I like men who look real. I like guys who look a bit rugged or who are handsome and sophisticated. I am not high maintance; I don't really need a guy who is.
At our age we have to accept that we would be bringing together and blending many different things. I'm okay with that and actually eager to try.
I'd just like to add...
Part of me has stayed a kid, I love Disney World, secrets, and everything about Christmas (at my house if you give up on Santa, you get underwear).
I am at a real turning point in my life with lots of changes going on--divorced for 3 years after being seperated on and off for about 3 years (I was married 30 years and my ex and I have a good working relationship--we really did give it a try), Add in older parents, kids venturing out into the world , job changes and for the first time since college I can be free to choose which path I take. Maybe you could walk with me.

My Top Interests:
I'm a life long English/Oral Communications\Drama teacher, I have about 2 years to go. Have to see how that works out. Anytime I've left it, I've always returned to it . It's an insane job, for insane people, who work with insane teenagers.
Family and Friends
Grew up on a rice farm, with a dad who did it all. We had everything from a car wash to airplanes. My mom ran my dad, 4 birth kids 2 adopted kids, and some foster kids. We grew up competitive whether 4-H club,sports, Sunday school or having our turn being "the host" at dinner. I have 11 neices and nephews and a year old grandbaby. My parents are elderly and in poor health, so I find myself inceasingly taking care of more of their business. I would really like someone fun and lighthearted .
I teach 17 year olds to care about literaure so I read everything. I love classic horror and sci fi movies. My music is eclatic Toby Keith to Flight of the Bumblebee. I even listen to rap--don't do the "gangasta" stuff. Enjoy travel. Was in Italy when one of the Popes died--talk about stopping all traffic. Love the water-lake, ocean, or pool. Would like to cruise some more and think everone should go to Disney World whenever they can. I would love to do more theater. Oh yea, can't forget Branson
