I'm 62, have been told I look like I am in my late 40's, by women as well as men. I'm physically fit, and enjoy barre classes, and weight lifting. I belong to a group that offers unusual adventures for fun, like dragon boat racing, "mushing," and mud runs. It's called Awesome Adventurous Women. I have two registered therapy dogs, whom I take to schools. The kids read to the dogs, not the other way around. As a team, my older golden retriever and I, just began visiting a prestigious cancer hospital. Its very rewarding, yet bittersweet. My friends say I'm lots of fun, and light up a room, just by walking in. I'm fun, affectionate,gregari ous, loyal, and enjoy good food and traveling. And, I love to cook, which is a gift from my dad. He was the chef in the family, self taught, with no recipes. I am working on my first children's picture book, hoping to become a published author in the near future,and I just joined a local critique group with other authors and illustrators.
