I love to cook, two of my children are professional chefs! I really like vacuums that work well and pick up pet hair!! The inverse of that is true, also, I really don't like vacuums that are not fulfilling the measure of their creation! Hence, I left the vacuum and escaped to wherever it is that we are. I like farms and kids, but don't want to milk the cows anymore. I am okay with smaller cities but am finished with big cities and traffic jams. I worked many years as a high school band director and later as a university teacher with a stint in the middle as a service manager for an RV dealer. I now spend my retirement years working as a tutor, not because I have to, but because I like to. Used to love camping, hiking, biking and all that outside stuff. Now I like keeping the fire stoked while everyone else is doing the hiking and sports, although I may usurp an atv or climb on the back of a motorcycle. I really really enjoy my family and friends. I like it when people drop by and can feel comfortable with me and mine. I can do the fancy entertaining, but most will tell you that mine is a home where most gather around the kitchen table to visit, study, play and even eat. Come on over, sit for a spell and let me get to know you.
