About Me

I am 70, live in NC since 1982. Originally from Pittsburgh area. Steelers fan of course. I am a nurse in an ambulatory surgery center. Have done cardiovascular, orthopedics, ICU, OB and surgical units in the past.

Favorite Music.

Love most kinds of music. Partial to Oldies, Blues and Jazz . I love Brian Culbertson and Chris Botti. Rod Stewart, Barry Manilow, Clint Black, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Trisha Yearwood, Celtic Thunder, Ten Tenors, .I really enjoy listening to Spanish and Italian CDs. I don't speak either language but I love to listen to it.

Favorite Books I love all of Jane Austin. I really like to read historical fiction and even biographies. I like Stephen King ,Ann Rice .Murder mysteries . period pieces like Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. Some comedies. When I am not feeling well, a romance novel is an easy and quick read. You don't really have to concentrate on them too much.

Favorite Movies. Again, period piece movies, horror, mysteries, definitely comedies. Have recently started watching some action movies like Thor and X-men which I did enjoy. One of my favorite movies is "Purple Hearts". My fav horror movie is Ghost Story.

Favorite Television Most anything of the Food Network or the Cooking Channel. Favorite shows are Chopped and Iron Chef. Used to watch the travel channel a lot but I'm not too crazy about the programming as much. I do like Mike and Molly, Big Bang Theory. I really did like Two and a half Men but not so much now with Aston Kucher. I am not impressed.

Favorite Crafts Enjoy knitting, cross stitch and painting occasionally I used to sew a lot but it's actually a cheaper to just buy clothes. I used to sew special outfits and costumes for my daughter when she was little. I have 2 small grandchildren, Dylan 16 months and Jolie is just 5 weeks. I look forward to doing things for them. I am trying my hand at felting. Other I love to travel!! I have been on 35 cruises. My favorite trip was to the Galapagos . I loved my South America cruise as well. Went to Iceland last summer. Really beautiful place. Would go back in a heartbeat. My dream trip will be to Ireland but every thing else comes up instead.

Favorite Colors Peach and Turquoise

I enjoy reading or hearing about different legends, folk tales and myths from other countries.

Favorite Foods I will try almost anything.I really like Mexican, Oriental, Indian and Italian Of course American. Love seafood .

Teas I like most teas . I can't say I really hate any one specific tea as there are so many to try. I do really like Green teas esp Pomegranite and tropical blends. I prefer my tea iced without any sweetener. I do like hot tea with honey and lemon when I am not feeling well. Today I realized I DO NOT like jasmine or Chai spice teas!!!

I prefer my postcards naked.

Wish List I am interested in postcards, healthy recipes, teas,handmade or natural soaps, Small jewlery, travel lotions(not too strong), beer glasses, Special food items from where you live.

Dislikes No mugs, No strong perfumes,No food flavored lip balms , No Cutsey Items like hello Kitty and such, no plush toys or large jewelry, No sports related items, No sewing supplies, No scrapbooking,, Nothing religious. (have all I need)

Comment: What great wildlife pictures! I like all of them but I particularly like the cardinal and the geese. Did you ever read the picture book 'Make Way for Ducklings' when you were little? That picture absolutely reminded me of that book (which was a favourite of mine as a child!) Thank you so much for sharing your pictures.
Response: I'm so glad you liked the pictures! I honestly don't remember reading the book but hey. I'm old 😆

Comment: Your story made me sad. I am so sorry to hear Geoff left ya I hope he’s happy but how could he be if you and him loved one another???? My what ended quickly was imagine being told you cannot conceive and then you find out you are pregnant but at 19 weeks you give birth to a child that only Lives for an hour and a half ?
