The one thing I am passionate about...
My family is the most important thing in my life followed closely by the following: music, the outdoors, traveling, reading, exploring new interests, theatre and movies, history, anything military (any military men looking for the "girl back home"?, animals.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love playing the piano, hammered dulcimer and singing. I also love to garden and can or freeze my produce to use all winter. I enjoy traveling and have been to all fifty states and probably over fifty or sixty foreign countries. I also love white water rafting, kayaking, swimming, tennis, and hiking in our beautiful mountains.
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone for whom I will be the ONE AND ONLY, the last love, the center of his life. Someone who will laugh and cry with me, explore new ideas and places, make me smile just by thinking of him, and absolutely SPOIL me! That has Never happened in my life and I have been envious of women whose men put them at the very center of their existence as I would do him! Also, must love garlic and onions and still want to kiss me after ingesting!!
The first thing people notice about me
My "smiley" wrinkles! As it says in the song, "the wrinkles go where the smiles have been" and I learned long ago that it's just as easy to smile as cry and it makes everyone feel better!
The last book I read and enjoyed
THE KITCHEN BOY, a fictitious account of a servant in the Romanov entourage who witnessed the execution of the tsar and his family, and later reveals some VERY interesting and long kept secrets about those events. It was awesome!
