I enjoy art and music, although I have no special skills in those areas. I have been dabbling in amateur photography for years and still love to work with black and white prints. A voracious reader, I recently began work on a novel as well as a series of children's books. The children's books are intended for nieces, nephews, and children of friends. I love to travel when the opportunity presents itself. I am also a bit of a sports nut believing opening day of college football season should be a national holiday. My love of baseball was passed down from y father a minor league shortstop. I want to meet people, possibly find a strong connection.
