I’m Judy. My husband Paul and I are thoroughly enjoying our early retirements, me from publishing and he from business consulting.
I came to Akron from Madison, Wisconsin, 27 years ago to start a business, never intending to stay this long. Akron is a wonderful place to live and I am now one its most vocal advocates. Akron is a comfortable place to live. We may not have all the amenities of a big city, but we also do not have all their problems either. Akron is large enough to have plenty of fun and small enough to make getting there easy.
Paul and I love to travel and meet new people. Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico is our favorite place to spend the winter months, but we may look elsewhere next year. I love Europe and wish we could spend more time there. Paul’s travel is a little more eclectic taking him to remote and primitive places around the world. Two of our children live in Minneapolis and Tacoma, while the third is currently in Istanbul, Turkey and will be relocating to Shanghai, China this summer, so we have plenty of incentives to travel.
My interests are varied, but my favorite is cooking for and enjoying the company of good friends and strangers, (especially those from other countries and cultures) who soon become our friends as we welcome them into our home. I also volunteer and take classes to enrich my life and appease my many, eclectic interests as I attempt to become a better painter, perform yoga exercises more fluidly, and learn new dances, get my bicycle ready for summer cycling, and my golf clubs cleaned up so I can practice and actually get close to the green:) I love playing games - especially Mah Jong and I am taking horseback riding lessons which qis an enjoyable way to connect with nature and (along with dogs), another of our 4 legged treasures!
Paul is a water gardener, pond master and all around 'renaissance man' who can master almost anything. Our backyard paradise is his creation. He is a voracious reader, always probing deeply into humanistic and Annie actually purrs when you hold her and pet her :)Our home is a warm and comfortable respite for anyone visiting Akron. We look forward to the opportunity to meet you, to make new friends, and to help make your trip so pleasant you will want to return and send others to meet us too. Happy travels!!!
