This online venture is for friendship and community more than anything else, and it fascinates me that the PNW seems so lightly represented here! What, we have more options and freedoms seek out interesting folks in person?

My Lutheran upbringing gave way long ago a world of information and the myriad of cultures that join us all in community. I have enjoyed Unitarian fellowships for helping me see what a broad scope of wisdom is available from so many sources.

My 2 kids are each married, healthy, happy, and raising families of their own. Experiencing life with grandies has brought a wealth of love and joy I could not have imagined.

Do you have an itch for adventure? Would you take a voyage in a hot air balloon thousands of miles? ...
tinkercreek comments on Sep 14, 2019:
I've been a few places, done a few things. Climbed Mt. Hood, snorkeled with fishies, swam with sea lions, top-kayaked over sharks, downhill & XC skied, rode motorbikes, vaca'd in sweet villages, Dragon boat raced, danced & partied, hiked through open & forested expanses, toured some of America and spent time in New Zealand & Fiji, a couple others. SO much more to see and do, and my lists of desired adventures are scattered about. I fully respect that a 60+ yr body would not heal as well or quickly as previously, and make choices accordingly. My next few months are designed around getting a new hip, anxious to change my current reality of being able to walk less than 30 mins at a time, which has been a major reality-bender. Reading and viewing on the adventures of others will have to do for a while, likely gaining new lists!
Roman numerals.
tinkercreek comments on Sep 14, 2019:
That's cute, and I don't care if the digits are accurate or not!

I've stopped using caps for religious names, for it makes no sense.
I turned 65 today, and this is how I feel this morning
tinkercreek comments on Sep 11, 2019:
Happy Birthday, Glenn! Sorry I missed your time zone, and hoping you wake up tomorrow to a better day. I'll report and the getting run over/arthritis situation when my new hip is installed in a few weeks!

Odd mood today?
Just a thought for the day! Not sure where it came from, but I enjoyed it and thought I'd share.
tinkercreek comments on Sep 10, 2019:
I think it's primarily those polarized religious zealots who have to question the empty/full issue.
Very imaginative

When is it okay to ask her if she's pregnant?
tinkercreek comments on Sep 8, 2019:
Made that mistake ONCE, with a recently married coworker, SO painful. Turns out those compression under-garments (spanx) push extra torso flesh all around into a preggers-type shape . . .
Ummm...what? Facebook is now trying to hook us up?

Sound advice lol

Great story, and hopefully good info for all. With over 40 yrs in various healthcare settings I've seen and heard quite a lot, and times as you describe when the third eye sees what others may not, and the heart takes over your time and action, are the truth of life. Thank you for doing what you do.

Yeah, naw.
after several months of emails, texting and a few phone calls, my virtual "friend" planned to visit ...
tinkercreek comments on Sep 1, 2019:
His "agenda": in town on business? If that seems plausible and still worth a meeting, sounds like good reason for extreme caution on your part, and other comments are also on point. Above all, if you do choose to meet, maintain control. NOT at his hotel for even a moment. Choose a very public space like coffee shop or restaurant, and maintain your own transportation. If the lack of planning turns out to have some explanation, it will be worth meeting again when you are more confident of him.

tinkercreek comments on Aug 31, 2019:
I prefer to look back and be glad that I've known and enjoyed falling in love, for some struggle with that. The depth of my feelings may have overshadowed the possibilities, and reality was tough to deal with but always plays through. Love, learn, and try again!

tinkercreek comments on Aug 31, 2019:
Sounds perfect - says she who has been without cheeseburger for well over a year. Now I think I may have to make some accommodation on that!
Saying "You're too fat" is rude. "You're too thin" is okay?

You are a strong, active, healthy woman - doesn't get much better than that, no matter the size!

51 years ago yesterday, the Sound of Music was released.😲
tinkercreek comments on Aug 29, 2019:
What a thrill that was, seeing the film at the glorious old Paramount Theatre (now the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall). I knew every song and sang them frequently when I was young, then enjoyed performing the choral versions into adult years. Perhaps the story was more of a draw for girls with the recalcitrant nun finding romance and family, the fears and journey of the children as they re-fashioned life and freedom. Loved it all, and still do!

tinkercreek comments on Aug 28, 2019:
I think it is in allowing yourself to panic over what you perceive as a failed search that can lead to not only unnecessarily negative feelings, but poor choices. You acted as wise women.

tinkercreek comments on Aug 24, 2019:
I agree, good to show support of our country as the founders intended, as I believe most non-conservatives do. However, I would NOT participate in the '56 addition of "under God" - silence would be my statement.
