A little more about me
I enjoy life and want to share that joy. I am not a fitness buff, but try to stay in shape,not a "dieter" but like to eat healthy food. I don't like to spend a lot of money on "toys". I enjoy experiences more than "things". There's so much more I want to do in life. I love old people and animals, dancing, and traveling to new places. Humor helps in all things, so I try to make good use of it.
