I would probably be described by others as a patient person who likes to stay with a job until it's done to my satisfaction. I hope other people will say I have a sense of humor along with a sense of adventure. I was a staff writer for many years at a daily newspaper and I also published a weekly column. Now I have a great "second career" as a volunteer at a local nature center. The best part of this highly rewarding job is guiding groups of children on class field trips. Physically, I think I'm average, medium build and I like to keep moving so I can stay healthy. I enjoy pleasant conversation and somewhat quiet times. I'm not afraid to pitch in and work where it's needed and I hope others can count on me to do what needs to be done. Please check back as this is a work in progress. I hope this blurb didn't bore you completely. If you weren't bored and read all the way through this then let's see what comes next!
