A little about me...
I think my friends would say I’m loyal, considerate, and fun to be around. I believe that the number of our years on this earth is just that - a number. What matters is what you've learned during that time, especially about yourself. Sometimes life is a "comedy of errors" and I have the ability - and plenty of opportunity - to laugh at myself. I was married for 30 years to the same guy and 28 of them were happy. We eventually became friends again before he died last year. I am quite self reliant – except when it comes to all things mechanical. I have no addictions – well maybe to chocolate. I have an appetite for learning and am an active Googler while reading. I'm physically fit and enjoy being out in nature and usually have my camera with me. I've included a few of my travel photos and also of hooked rugs & wall hangings I've made. I used to be in the antique business but discovered I liked buying much better than selling; still enjoy going to flea markets and yard sales in search of that elusive treasure, also art galleries, museums, and historical sites. I like most kinds of music, especially the blues, and would love to go to New Orleans again. Am an avid Patriots fan, and really get excited watching my grandson play hockey.
About the one I'm looking for...
non-smoker, good communicator, good sense of humor, down to earth, compassionate, loyal, flexible.
I'd just like to add...
I'm an optimistic, positive person and usually look on the bright side of things, although if I see an injustice and can do something about it, I will. I have been known to write letters to the editor! One of my mottos is expect the best but prepare for the worst.

My Top Interests:
Family and Friends
I am fortunate to have a daughter and her family living nearby so I have enjoyed watching my grandchildren growing up. I enjoy meeting new friends but have a wide circle of friends some of whom I attended school with; but I would like to find one special guy to share life with.
I love reading a novel and recognizing a place I've been. Or seeing a photo or painting of a place
Nature and Outdoors
Some of my favorite memories are of walks in the woods. There was a mountain almost right behind the house I grew up in with a wonderful spring with fresh, clean, ice cold water. I have recently discovered a whole network of trails througout the Concord area and have started exploring them. I used to enjoy downhill and cross country skiing; it made the winters fly by; but I do enjoy the change of seasons. The first snowfall makes everything look new again.
