Favorite Road Trip would be a combo of Diners, Drive ins and Dives along with historical sites and genealogical research, visits to Dutch Oven, BBQ and other food festivals and fairs, hands on farming, ranching and gardening, some time at the beach a must. I could be talked into picking up and exploring an entirely new culture. I am fascinated by the small house movement and by people who live full time on cruise ships (but I'm not interested in even one cruise) and other interesting alternates to traditional housing even though I own a home. I don't know if I could do all of that, but it all interests me. My career was Foods and Nutrition based and I am still passionate about preserving culinary cultures, making sure younger folks know how to cook etc.
I love language, etymology, written and spoken, although I do not like constant blah blah blah or yakkavision or people who talk a lot to try to impress. I love word jokes and plays on words. I don't like to have to explain them.
I like a peaceful, comfortable, convivial home where we just enjoy one another and don't bicker and carry on. I was dumb enough to participate in the drama and intensity when I was very young. What a waste. Not since I've been able to control my own life.
I am a complex woman, not mean or demanding--maybe I should be more of both. Those traits seem to attract an awful lot of men (friends) I know here where I live. I keep telling them not to settle for that nonsense.
