Hi, I am a single dad of a 32 yr old son and a 16 yr old daughter. I am retired from the state of Calif. and work part-time for Home Depot, saving for my daughters' college expenses.HA! HA! I own Victorian home, located in the historic district of my town. Besides doing upgrades and redecorating our home, I work in our cottage garden where we have a small Koi pond and 5 egg laying chickens. I go to live theatre in Ashland, Or. and attend concerts at the yearly Britt Festval. We currently have an exchange student from Germany who will be going back to his home in late June. Being a single parent for many years has prevented me from doing long distance travelling for quite awhile but I have spent 3 weeks in Ireland. I had lived for 10 yrs in New England,5 yrs at Lake Tahoe, many years in S.F. and 15 yrs in Oregon. I like change, can talk with strangers very easily and am a neat freak. I enjoy chilling-out with friends on our porch or rear patio with food, music, wine or a good microbrew.
