- Delta, British Columbia, Canada
- I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

I had lunch today with the "potential charmer" I mentioned a few posts back. It was actually a very nice lunch with good conversation and some laughs. He's the first man I've gone out with who actually asked me right out (well, not immediately but in the course of the chatting)if I wanted to get married again! That sort of threw me for a loop but he said that he didn't want to make the same mistakes he'd made in the past. I thought that was quite honest of him. He also paid for lunch before I had a chance to even realize the bill had come and when I tried to object, he just smiled and said, "Too late." I think he's worth another date. Unfortunately, he doesn't live in the same city as I do, so I'll just have to wait and see if he gets in touch. But wouldn't it be nice to be courted for a change? It's been so long since there've been any real contenders and it's going to be pretty difficult to get to know each other well from a distance. However, if it's meant to be, it'll be. In the meantime, life goes on.
