A little about me...
Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much!
I believe that happiness comes from within. Being happy is a conscious decision that you make. Not something you look for, or something someone gives you. I am retired, healthy,independent and love life! I'm a tomboy who never grew up, at home in jeans and sneakers, but I enjoy dressing for dinner, the theater, a quiet evening at home and just about anything in between. Enjoy being outside. When the kids were young I had a 75x200 garden, which allowed me to feed my family all year long. A lot of work, but I miss it. I practically grew up in the woods or on the ocean. Haven't gone camping in years because my husband (bless him) thought that "roughing it" was a room with no color TV, but I'd love to do it again. I enjoy being on the water. salt or fresh, but not having a boat, I am at the mercy of my friends. Love my kids and grandkids.. family get-togethers are the greatest! When I can help a friend, I'm there. If 70 is the new 50 and silver is the new blonde... then I'm a 50 year old BLONDE!
About the one I'm looking for...
A new best friend. Should love life and be comfortable "in your own skin"! Support me in my endeavors, but allow me space, as I will you. Enjoy books, music (all kinds from Dixieland to Country, to oldies and Grand Opera), the great outdoors, be at least a little creative, from music to woodworking, doesn't matter. Creativity keeps the mind young. Be able to debate without arguing...
I'd just like to add...
Books, music, shows, photography (a hobby that hasn't quite paid for itself), out of doors hiking or walking and gardening, museums, flea markets, auctions, I'd even paddle my own canoe if I had one. Someone once told me that my problem was that I was interested in EVERYTHING.
Oh yes, another thing (or two). If you have no picture, I will not respond. If your profile has no information, I will NOT send you a message, in spite of your admonitions to do so. Please don't send "flirts"; they aren't the least bit informative. I hate 'em. If you have something to say, say it in plain English and in your own words. I appreciate that kind of thing. Thanks. Cheers!
P.S: I'm rather old fashioned with regard to relationships and probably won't make the first move... Soo.... your turn.

My Top Interests:
All of the arts and crafts, fine and primative, visual, auditory, performing, anything creative that gives delight to the senses.
The world is so large and time is short! Meeting new people and experiencing new places and things ... what can I say! Odyssys of the mind; learning new things should qualify as travel..yes? no?
Family and Friends
This probably should have been #1.. I have always said, "all you really have and can count on is your family and one or two very close friends". All the rest is just window dressing.
