I am almost a native Atlantan - I've lived in the metro area for about thirty years. My friends would describe me as kind, considerate, loyal, funny, fun to be around, intelligent. Oh, did I say funny? I have a goofy side to me. At times I do have to be serious, but when I don't have to be, I have a goofy side. I love to laugh and make others laugh - it is so much fun just be silly every now and then. I enjoy a good book (love Stephen King, Dean R. Koontz, and John Grisham), seeing a movie (you've got to see Signs - it is wonderful!), hiking, playing tennis, travelling,and sometimes just a nice quiet evening at home. I love cats and dogs. I am well-travelled. I've been to Nassau, Korea, Spain, and Portugal. Someday I would like to travel to Australia. I like to smile when I'm out. It is amazing how much a simple smile can brighten someone's day. I try to have fun whenever I can, for life is short. I live life to its fullest.
