Recovering well from surgery, working on getting back into shape after years being disabled. Dancer in temporary abeyance - see above. Proud 7th generation carpenter (retired), 3rd generation Union, still carry card. Politically, I am a radical moderate - right of Bernie, left of HRC; and I LOATHE 45.
Lost my darlin' dear suddenly ( 2 weeks from diagnosis to death) in early January, 2016. Still carrying a torch for my redheaded ghost, and likely always will. That being said, while I am not actively pursuing, I may someday like to have a new partner in crimes against mundanity.
Diverse family; two of my children, and virtually all of my grandchildren and great-grandchildren are mixed-ethnicity. And ALL of my kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids are beautiful (there is a possibility that I may be slightly biased). Also have LGBTQ+ kids/shirttails/relatives - So ANY racism or homo/trans phobia are deal killers for me.
