At this age I just want to leave a small footprint and enjoy life. Hopefully do something that will leave the world a better place when Im gone but until then enjoy music, coffee, laugh alot. I do not want to be judged on how i look but I am considered good-looking to most men. The man I choose will be charming, gentle, extremely kind-hearted and love animals and children. If you are looking for a WILD WOMEN I am not your girl. I love animals, music, reading and good companionship. A bit of a radical mind when it comes to politics. I dont care what you do - I care who you are inside....I am a rural country girl at heart. I can whisper to all animals except the human kind. I have done the travel thing, the competitive thing and the party thing, I am over all that now. I enjoy riding, gardening and watching the grass grow with an occasional trip to the city. I still have many responsibilities that take up my time so while I am a homebody at heart I still have lots of energy and keep very fit and healthy. My grandchildren are a BIG part of my life so men who dont care for children can pass me by. I have had lots of men who like motorcycles email me but I have to say I do not EVER see myself on the back of a motorcycle so you guys might just as well pass me by also. I'm not your gal. If I choose anyone at all it will be for a companion not ENTERTAINMENT. I can entertain myself!!! Respect me and I will respect you. I am not looking for marriage, a man to support me or push me around. I believe in soul mates who love each other mentally, physically and spiritually for a lifetime, who have an immediate connection. Sadly I have found that kind of love frightens people and they move away from it rather than toward it-- thus ending up with sub-standard relationships or being alone. A sad commentary to a so called "enlightened" generation. I am an old and gentle soul who does not want to be "tampered" with! Don't bother sending me a note if you didn't really read my profile!!!!!
