"Don't walk in front of me,
I may not follow.
Don't walk behind me,
I may not lead.
Just walk beside me
and be my friend."
I am equally an Introvert and an Extrovert, as determined from college profile tests.
Former stewardess with United Air Lines.... good o' days of flying.
I loved flying and had a private pilot's license when I was younger. My instructor and I loved aerobatic flying.
My husband really cringes when I tell him that I would volunteer to go into space on the shuttle.
Of course, there are times when he would like to send me into space (LOL).
Worked private industry for 20 yrs and civil service for 15 years.
Am now retired.
I really enjoy all the available information on a computer, and I research daily, as well as have fun with emails and graphics.
Enjoy theatre plays, the symphony, operas, ballet, and rodeos.
I had horses at one time (a love of mine) and enjoyed trail rides.
Was a member and officer of the Jaycees for many years, a period of great enjoyment for me, working the many community projects.
Although I don't own now and can no longer ride horses, due to a knee replacement, and not a member of the Jaycees (a young person's organization); they will be a permanent part of my life and interests.
TV, reading, computer, and my Bichon Frise dogs, as well as the Red Hatters and my family of course! My husband and I enjoy working the daily newspaper crossword puzzle and sitting in our rocking chairs on the covered patio watching our three Bichon Frise 'babies' play in the yard.
Smooth jazz; classical; 40's,50's,60's; Big Band music, and pop (Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Diana Krall); Southern Gospel music, Gloria & Bill Gaither music shows; country music (mostly the older performers - Vince Gill, Reba, Willie Nelson,etc.); and ELVIS, of course. I saw him 3 times, the first time (I was 12 yrs old) was in a high school auditorium in Pine Bluff AR before he went West and became famous. That was the last time to ever get close to him. I was in the 3rd row from the stage. He was dressed in all RED .... exciting..... you bet!
Love the old musicals!! JOHN WAYNE! Westerns. Some action movies, if there is really a story. Am biased to the movie stars of 'yesteryear'.... 40's, 50's and 60's. But the new musical movie CHICAGO is a favorite.
Loved "Everybody Loves Raymond", "The Nanny", the "Golden Girls."
If my husband hears me laughing, he always says: "You must be watching 'Raymond' or 'Big Mommas House' movie."
Addicted to the three Law and Order series: L&O, L&O (SVU), and L&O (CI) and NCIS.
Watch movies and FOX NEWS, . Enjoy PBS programs. Love Tom Selleck's western movies and Jesse Stone series movies.
Nicholas Sparks' books, and mystery writers.
And the greatest of all, the HOLY BIBLE.
Honest people. Giving people.
Red Hatters who are genuine friends. Friends who like to have fun.
Favorite person: KING DAVID
Person I find most amazing:
The most giving, unselfish person... truly the 'image of God.'
Childhood hero: Roy Rogers
Would love to fly with one of the USAF Thunderbirds or NAVY Blue Angels, but..., my hubby would have a 'nervous breakdown'(LOL) worrying about me. That flying would be a thrill of a lifetime!
Love my country!
Manipulative people, users, sneaky people, and dishonest people. People who whine about their 'woe is me'. Snobs, and 'wannabes'. Cliques! Gossip!
Anti-Americans and/or desecration of our flag.
Will not even consider a cruise!! I tell folks 'no way'... I don't want to be out any further than I can swim back.. and that's not far these days. (LOL)
I get angry about injustices, unfairness and corruption.
CHOCOLATE AND MORE CHOCOLATE!
Loyal without question!
I develop intense, deep feelings for people and causes. Trusting to a fault at times. Have a forgiving spirit.
Husband (Doc) is a former Major League Baseball (MLB) player/catcher for the Cleveland Indians, Kansas City Athletics, and New York Yankees; Coach for the Phillies and NY Mets; and the Manager of the Cleveland Indians.
Since retiring with MLB, he has been enjoying Independent League Baseball. My husband has four mid-age children and grandchildren. I have one mid-age son, married with a child.
My two brothers have lived in Atlanta since 1961. Their families are also there.
Are you a Mother?
Are you a Grandmother?
