About Me

I'm a retired registered nurse, college instructor, and administrator. Married to the same man for 43 years, I lost him to heart failure in 2006 on Dec 6. He had been a Marine and always honored Pearl Harbor Day - he missed it that year by one day. After recovery, I met a wonderful man and we live together as companions.

I'd like to meet

Peter the Great, tsar of the Russias
Presidents Bush 41 and 43 and their wives
General George Patton
Margaret Thatcher
Albert Einstein
Walter Williams
Emmett Tyrrell
Tom Selleck
Rush Limbaugh


Community affairs
Jam sessions


I play piano by ear, guitar by ear, keyboard, and I sing harmony. I've had a volunteer group for over 10 years that entertains for the elderly, veterans, county fairs, and fundraisers for good causes. Our first year we clocked 1470+ hours of entertaining. I loved it. I double as comic and MC.

I am on the internet hours each day, mostly on political topics- have been an avid follower of national politics for over 45 years - it can grow on you - somewhat like mold

Favorite Music

LIVE, not recorded, is most important to me.
I like show tunes, blues, c/w in small doses, opera not at all, classical piano, jazz piano, jazz vocalists

Favorite TV Shows

NCIS - ergo it was cancelled
The X factor - ergo it was cancelled
Perry Mason - cancelled, but only because of his demise
Judge Judy - she may not always be fair, but she takes no guff
Dancing with the Stars - some of these people really DO have talent

Favorite Movies

Sound of Music
Those Magnificent Young Men in their Flying Machines
Around the World in 80 Days
Quest for Fire
Thoroughly Modern Millie
Dr. Zhivago
Music Man

Favorite Books

I grew up with Nancy Drew - love to reminisce with those old books
Atlas Shrugged gave me an altered outlook on life - helped set my destiny
All of Robert Parker mysteries
