A little about me...
I am a very happily retired teacher. Love travel, flowers, hiking, crossword puzzles, reading, music, photography, and birds. I am a NAUI certified diver. Love the smell of the air after rain or storm and fresh cut hay or grass and baby powder. I do not smoke and do not want to be around smokers. I don't snore. I am NOT religious. I like to go and do and I usually do it on the bargain price not the 5 star route. If I can't do it myself I hire it done but I will make a tremendous effort to do it myself first. The exception being anything to do with the car. I am a total loss there. I am a pretty good problem solver. I do all my own yard work and always have lots of flowers. I love, love, love flowers!!! No matter what it says in that first section, I DO NOT LIVE IN BALLWIN, I LIVE IN MANCHESTER
About the one I'm looking for...
Looking for someone age appropriate. NOT looking for a much younger guy. Would like someone who likes many of the same things I do and who really likes to travel both domestic and foreign. I am looking for a good travel buddy! A non smoker too.
I am not into sports very much. So don't expect me to sit and watch sports with you on TV. I no longer worry about having a spotless house! My place looks lived in but it is clean! The garage is another matter entirely and you will have to have a lot of patience with me on that. It would be good if you are better about putting things back where they belong than me! I have been toying with the idea of getting myself a new bike and trying some of the biking tours. Provance or Tuscany would be good! They would be good hiking tours as well. Hope you have eclectic tastes. I am hoping to start doing driving trips to see more of my own country.
"I WILL NOT" respond to you unless you "POST A PICTURE" and "FILL OUT YOUR PROFILE." "I'll tell you later, send me a message," is an automatic no from me. I am not fond of those canned flirts either, and I do NOT respond to them. Use your own words and say something, don't let others put words in your mouth.
I'd just like to add...
I am not a picky eater. If it can't get away from me I will try it. I don't have pets now because I am gone too much. I have a small pond in my backyard but at present I am out of fish due to the heron and the mink that went fishing without my permission. My camera is always with me. I take LOTS of pictures! I will sometimes want you to take the place of a tripod so I can hold the camera steady, but it is an easy job. I have a lot of places left on my to do list and would love to find someone who would like to finish the list with me, don't like single supplements! I like funny, you need a sense of humor! Also be adventurous. I will go almost anywhere however, Mexico and the middle east are off my list for now. I LOVE to read and it is hard for me to extract my nose from a book! I could not live without music! I am always discovering CD's that I can't live without. The only music I don't like is heavy metal, hard rock, and rap. I like to go to opera but I don't usually want to listen to it at home. I hope you like live theater. I like going to the movies also but I don't do horror or thrillers. I love going to the symphony too. Love the Science Center, the Zoo, and the Botanical Garden as well.

My Top Interests:
I have wander and wonder lust.
I want to see everything there is to see. I want to meet people in all those places.

I like to be out and doing. Love to beachcomb or hike in the woods, taking pictures where ever I go.
I love music, but no rap or heavy metal or hip hop type. Everything else is great.
