I would love to spend some time getting to know everyone in the community.

Tell us 3 things about you that we probably don't know!

Here are three random things about me.
  • I love most anything in nature, except snakes, spiders, and mosquitoes.
  • In "real life" I tend to be painfully shy when meeting new people.
  • Finding my keys and cell phone is a never ending search.

OK, I'll play.

- For a while I did standup comedy. Even got paid for it a couple of times.
- I shave with a double-edged razor that's older than I am.
- I have never seen the movie Titanic.

I love getting to know people. For some reason I can picture you doing stand up comedy. You are very personable.

I actually have watched Titanic a few times. It is not normally the kind of thing I watch, but I did enjoy that one.

I have been intrigued by the tiny house movement. I watch the TV shows and U-tube videos. Not that I want to live in 200 sq. feet. Although our home is small at 1,000 sq. ft. Watching how people are happy to live is so much less has inspired me to declutter our home. It's still a work in progress, but it is so satisfying to reduce the stuff in my life.

In the past I had many flower beds on our small residential plot of land. I thoroughly enjoyed designing, planting, reworking... and, yes, I enjoy weeding. I kept an active compost heap for years - and actually used the resulting leaf loam. There are so many beautiful perennials available, and we live near a super great nursery. I also enjoy limited landscaping and have put in paths, a stone wall, a rock garden, a bird sanctuary. It's been fun. Another yard activity that I greatly enjoy is raking leaves. I lived most of my life in areas without many trees, and now live with large mature trees all over the neighborhood. Love it.

I like reading mystery novels - the more tame ones (no terror or gory details) - and if the setting is in Britain, that's even better. Also watch many British mystery videos (now, that's an outdated term - should I say "disks?"). I take full use of our well stocked library and inter-library-loan services. Hardly even actually buy a book or disk.

Here's a fourth one for free... I don't use a cell phone, iPhone, iPad, etc. or text. If you want to talk to me you'll have to call me or send me an email (which only comes across on my home computer).

I couldn't find the kickin' screamin' smiley
I may have should have said some of these in "my life's goals" thread but:
  • I really wouldn't mind moving to Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Utah, etc. after I retire.
  • I used to like growing a garden, but haven't in a while. I think I would like to have a green house.
  • I used to be a conservative democrat, now I'm just a conservative.

@TooSweetForMe I love watching (and listening) a good old thunderstorm. I am not a big fan of hurricanes though. We are fixin' to get a visit from Hurricane Harvey this weekend.

@Cricket, my nephew and his family live in Alvin and they spent 3+ hours getting things tied down or inside yesterday afternoon, then going to the grocery store and such.

Keep us updated on how things are going there.
