A little about me...
People say I am warm, personable and considerate. I have been told I am witty with a good sense of humor. I have been a paralegal for 29 years. I know a few good attorney jokes. I like sports - KC Chiefs, KC Royals, Big 12. I drove to River Falls, Wisconsin with my son 2 years ago to see the Chiefs in training camp. I have been to 35 states - hope to get all 50 states visited ( that is on the bucket list ).
I am rapidly developing my map reading skills. Am I the only one getting out maps of Missouri and Kansas to see where some of you fine folks live? My sister is laughing at me when I say where is ( fill in the blank ) town?
About the one I'm looking for...
Honesty and trust are important to me. Kindness too. A sense of adventure is nice; humor is important. I think a good first date is over coffee or brunch ( dutch treat, of course ) on a weekend in the daytime in a public place with an army of my friends hiding in the bushes to protect me. SWAT teams on notice, helicopters flying overhead and the entire KCMO police force on alert.
I kid, of course. I have not dated in 24 years. I could rethink a first date strategy. Send me tips on your first date, what works? Is the SWAT team idea overload?
I'd just like to add...
I like to see movies, and I enjoy the outdoors. I love animals. I like to read, swim and travel. I love to hike esp. in the fall; the autumn foliage is awesome. I'd ride my bike when I can but work/duties/errands/life prevents too much of that; my bike sadly hangs upside down in the garage, looking forlornly at me. I feel guilty.
Sun Aug 14 update - my son, now 19, is moved back into the dorm at MU for his 2nd year.
I'm careful with funds - his college fund has been saved for years in IRAs to meet this expense.
Sun Aug 21 update -
whew! A busy week concluded - glad it is the weekend.
This insightful quote from an old Woody Allen movie makes me laugh.
Woody says to a girlfriend, maybe Diane Keaton
"Relationships are like sharks; they have to keep moving. What we have on our hands here is a dead shark".
I smile thinking about this quote. I like goofy sayings. I see the bad news all around, but I am a glass half full type of person.
Summer thoughts -
I can not WAIT until I am 55 - then I get to order off the "senior breakfast special" page, the last page of the IHOP menu.
Fall musings -
I haven't been on this website for at least 30 days; blame work. No one dies and says I wish I had spent more time in the office.
