More About MeThe question asked is what makes me special and the answer is , Ive never thought I was special anymore than anyone else. And yet a better answer might be I think everyone is special in their own way....Each of us has a special or unique gift or talent,,,,a unique personality...unique traits and characteristics and we all have special needs... some pretty common and some quite unique. rnrnrnAt our ages, Im speaking to the ones of us on this site that are "mature",we have in the past struggled to raise our children, keep our finances secure, our houses repaired our grass cut and could not address our wants and desires oftentimes during those early years.rnrnWhat we hope to achieve, at some time in our mature lives, is more leisure time....maybe to travel, to entertain, to build that workshop, spend time with the grandkids, learn to play the piano......buy that sportcar......be that little kid you couldnt be growing up because you, being the oldest of the clan became the mother or father to your siblings so yoursingle parent could work and feed you all.
Hobbies / Interests / ActivitiesIn my spare time I enjoy family and friend get togethers, traveling, gardening (love plants and flowers that friends have given me.....and I have a bunch to keep weeded and watered.....try to keep the birdfeeders filled........my interests are very diversified.....trying out new receipes sometimes....hard to cook for one person.....and doesnt taste as good eating alone either.
Political AffiliationI am a conservatist and will vote for the person and not the party.......Im losing faith in both....
Favorite Musicrock and roll, oldies but goodies, Michael Bolton, Michael Jackson, Toby Keith, Reba McIntyre, Frank Sinatra,Collective Souls.....
Favorite BooksRead my Bible, (not nearly enough) rountinely read my local paper, read self improvement books, I hope You Dance written by Oriah Mountain Dreamer,very interesting about romantic relationships (and I need to learn)
Favorite QuotesWhen Im overwhelmed with big decisions or trying to motivate myself into taking action in a difficult situation, I just ask myself, "how do you eat an elephant" and myself answers back "just one bite at a time"
Where You Were RaisedRaised just outside Atlanta
Others NoticeJust based on what others have told me, I think people would notice first my genuine, open smile. Its a smile that says "I want to trust everyone new that I meet" .....but followed by two blue eyes that say "Im watching you to see if youre trustworthy!" Is that a sign of maturity? I sure hope so.........cause I dont want to sound like a hardcore rigid mistrusting soul, Im not!
Skills/TalentsI am a good money manager and self motivator....A good people person and very dependable when I give my word, you can count on it...I have rental property and manage it myself and do a lot of "hands on" repairs myself........a little plumbing, lots of painting and mainly just trying to put places together after some renters have "trashed" them. I also have owned and operated a small retail shop for over 25 years.
Favorite FoodA good steak, Italian Pasta with plenty of garlic, Lobster or good fresh fish, anything marinated and on the grill is scrumsdeliiious!)
Favorite PlacesIreland, Italy for overseas travel........PC beach, Daytona Beach, North Georgia Mtns.......for local......or just Dawcett Trails to see the animals and eat at Buckners rest while so close....to east some of that good ole fried chicken.
Friday or Saturday Nights Iright at this in this chapter in my life, after breaking up from a long term relationship, you might find me sitting in front of the tv.on a Friday or Saturday nite ...with my two loyal buddies, usually one on each knee, glad to have me all to themselves....(I am speaking of two little doggies) One is a little rescue darling that I brought home just until I could find a home for him.......yep, the rest is history.....he and the first dog, who by now is the "King" bonded like brothers and ....me too....well, I bonded lke the leader of the pack.....well, okay.then....sometimes Im the leader.....
Life GoalsWhat are my life goals ? Well, good question........ I think that would be to let my family and friends know that I will always be in their corner even if they take a stand in something or for something that I disagree with ...that I am there for them....and oh, yes I will continue to believe in them even if I dont believe in what they believe in.....rnrnMy aspirations are to work hard now so that if the Lord is willing I may have more time in the future to have more fun and maybe help other people.rnrnI pray that God will forgive me for my many transgressions and allow me to go to heaven to see the rest of my family, that I miss very much.
SecretNo secrets that I wish to share that I can think of......Im just as transparent as glass usually.......but love listening to your secret......and the best part is.........I can keep a secret........therefore I know a lot of other peoples secrets........cause they trust me.........and you can too!
