I love to travel, meet people and experience the 'local flavor' of new places. I have a job I enjoy, live in a great neighborhood, and have wonderful family and friends in my life. I like to read, write, paint, and hike. I'm single and my only adult son is an airline pilot - so I have the benefit of traveling with very little notice based on destination weather, my mood, and available stand-by flights. Obviously, I'm a happy person - how on Earth could I not be so? If you'll have me as a guest, know that I can't wait to meet you and will be happy for your insights and recommendations, but you'll also find me to be independent, tolerant and not at all needy.
