We are a married couple named Linda and Marc. Marc works and isn't around Monday - Friday during the day; just now Linda is working from home. We like gardening, the beach, and swimming in the summer. We currently are watching a silly show called "Rules of Engagement". We've had a few lovely vacations in Hawaii and look forward to our next trip there.
We will enjoy chatting if you like, or we will leave you to yourself. We are friendly and flexible.
