The one thing I am passionate about...
My family, including my six beautiful grandchildren; I cherish the time spent with them.I place a high value on continuing to explore my interests, feeling that there are so many fascinating things in life. I have always had a strong desire to learn, as well as having a curious mind.
I typically spend my leisure time
I have always enjoyed playing games, including Scrabble, backgammon, and a variety of card games, including cribbage. Coupled with good conversation and tasty wine, this is one of my favorite ways to spend an evening.I also read quite a bit, including novels, nonfiction, magazines, and the daily newspaper. I love movies of all kinds, both at the theater and on video. And I do have my favorite television shows - NCIS, Criminal Minds, CSI, and old Seinfeld episodes (these are the best).I enjoy walking, and spending time by the water. I recently went kayaking for the first time, something I had always wanted to do - loved it!
The most influential person in my life has been
Honesty and genuineness, as well as a light-hearted attitude toward life. And a true sense of happiness...
The first thing people notice about me
My interest in them; every person has a story to tell, and I like to hear those stories.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book I read was Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen; and I am nearly finished with The Help by Kathryn Stockett - both excellent. I love having a Kindle, as it is so easy to carry along so that I am never without reading material. Two of my favorite authors are John Grisham and Stephen King.
The three things which I am most thankful for
