I'm a transplanted New Yorker, who still enjoys a good bagel, and of course, good coffee. I live in my own home in Oakland with my pug.. My son, whom I adopted as a single parent, lives in Dublin and attends Cal State East Bay; we remain close. I retired 2 years ago from working as a medical social worker, which I enjoyed. I love walks with my friends and doggies, movies, working out, seeing concerts and shows, meeting with my monthly book club. I play bridge once a week (a friendly game), mah jong and love crosswords and quiz showes. Now that I have more free time, I enjoy volunteering at the local school as well as tutoring students who are preparing for their GED. I've always loved to travel- my first trip I won on a TV show! My life is active and full; the only thing missing is a good man -someone who is bright, grounded, has a great sense of humor and likes to kid around.
