The one thing I am passionate about...
The importance of family and close friends, being a Mom and a Grandma, OUTDOOR activities and exercise (ride my bike 50 miles/week), pretty music, making a positive contribution to whatever situation I'm in (personal or professional)...and in my heart I'll always be a country girl and a lover of horses, even if I don't get to live that lifestyle choice again.
I typically spend my leisure time
1) Good movies, limited TV. I'm an old-fashioned girl...favorites include Gunsmoke, John Wayne, It's a Beautiful Life, Mrs. Doubtfire, As Good As It Gets, Driving Miss Daisy, Patriot Games, Thomas Crown Affair...sometimes a new one like Open Range gets added! 2) Going to see plays, musicals, and hearing live music. 3) Reading good books (don't get to read as much as I'd like to).NOTE: I take �leisure time� to mean less active stuff�the more active outdoor things include riding my bike, four-wheelin� in my Jeep, camping, photography, day trips, etc. Fortunately, I'm able to enjoy MANY things and am ALWAYS open to new adventure!
The most influential person in my life has been
The desire to find a mate for the rest of life...someone as sincere as I am about keeping a relationship alive, precious, and sacred throughout the inevitable bends and turns we get dealt...in other words, I need someone who truly wants and values it as much as I do, and understands that respect, compromise and trade-offs go with the territory (hopefully things like honesty, integrity, fun, etc. go without saying!).
The first thing people notice about me
My warm, energetic, and heartfelt style...I'm for real, no games here.
The last book I read and enjoyed
It's been longer than I care to admit...last read parts of various Laura Schlessinger books, but now on the list are "Winning" by Jack and Suzy Welch, "Inside My Heart" by Robin McGraw (as in Phil), and Laura Ingraham's new book "Power to the People".
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My three grown girls, my grandkids, family and close friends
- Strong, healthy mind and body
- Experience in life, the strengths I've been given, and freedom
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Have never wished for this.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
(1)My desire for the right long-term match could not be more sincere, but I'm in no hurry, don't want premature commitment, and am not casually intimate. 2)I don't watch match results daily...you probably have a full life too! (3)I am very physically active and want to enjoy being active with my mate! 4)I was as honest as the Personality Profile choices allowed, but came out rated "Focused" when I'm truly BOTH "Focused" AND "Flexible"..."usually" on time is accurate, and if something beyond my control delays me, I always call. 4)Having owned mostly working dogs, I now have two small house dogs (and yes, they sleep at the bottom of my bed).
