ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

I grew up in Texas when Austin was still a sleepy town, but about to explode into the little cosmopolis it now is. I worked hard in high school, graduating at the top of my class of 500, then rocked across town to the University of Texas. Along the way, I played hard, waterskied, danced late and glammed my way into being queen of the first Austin Aqua Festival. From U.T., I married my college boyfriend, a baseball player, who then signed a contract with the New York Mets. We enjoyed four years of gypsy-like living, returning to Chandler, OK., to help run a family-owned baseball camp. Well, two daughters and fifteen years later, that chapter ended. I left with my wonderful daughters, who become successful career women in the D.C. area.

But back to me. Several years of graduate school followed as I better prepared myself for work. In 1986, I moved to an island paradise (St.Simons Island, GA), where I had a splendid live for almost 30 years. I've sported around in my Alfa Romero convertible, found a few civil places to dance, and drove to Jacksonville for symphonies and the theater. Belonging to several social clubs introduced me to the locals, primarily retirees from the N.E., and provided a full calendar of activities. But the time has come to move back to family, those two daughters and, now, two grandchildren, who live in Alexandria.

My friends see me as a good conversationalist, compassionate, spontaneous, funny and they recently elected me president of our P.E.O chapter (an international group that supports education and women's studies). For exercise, I swim, belong to a club, ride my bike and walk. More than anything I enjoy travel and the new adventures it provides. I recently was snorkeling in Jamaica and returned last November from a month in Europe. The opportunities to study history, photograph the architecture and sketch were priceless. Currently I'm thinking of revisiting the West. When I have an evening at home, I read (primarily fiction) and watch Masterpiece Theater/Mystery and good movies. While I'm not a religious fanatic, I regard my church as a welcome anchor in these tumultuous times.

And now for the big question: what kind of man would I enjoy dating? He would be entertaining, have a quick wit, enjoy a good laugh and be open to new adventures. He would ask me to dance often, teach me one of his passions, and have many interesting friends. Shared interests would then serve as a bridge to simply enjoying each others company.

As we say in the West, if "the good Lord's willin' and the crek don't rise," I will have established a residence in Alexandria by July 1, 2014. Let's get together and see where it leads. That's why we joined this site, correct?
