Hi, I'm Tracy from California, outside of Los Angeles.

I'm not quite a newbie in that I retired 1.5 years ago, but I don't get to this site often so am a newby to this. In fact I attempted to repsond to this a few minutes ago, but when attempting to spell check a word, lost the entire response. Argh!

I love being retired because of the freedom of time that I have. I usually can come/go as I please because I am single with two crazy cats and no-one to be responsible for.

Mondays I volunteer at a shelter with shy/ferral cats, and on Wednesday I do fun things with my 4 yr old grandson, while on Friday I usually do something interesting with an old work friend of mine. 

I'm religious and attend mass weekly, and I'm currently involved with a group during Lent, learning more about the mass. Fascinationg to learn how people raised in the same religion often view it differently.

Politics became an interest after the 2016 election, and I don't mind listening to opposing views, as long as they respectfully voiced. I find that lecturing or using brain washing tactics is not only rude but a turn off. But I like to know why people feel as they do.

I'm off to a funeral for an elderly gentleman shortly and then will socialize with the kitties before gardening.

I hope this response goes through.

Lastly, I don't check in here daily but do respond when alerted that someone has contacted me.

Hope you have a fun day.

Sir Granny Tracy

Ahoy -

Yes, I am Real!

I live in Lincoln City, OR, and rand for City Council, this last election.

Came in 3rd out of 3, lol; at least I know I have a couple of hundred friends in town, lol.

I don't hang out on this site, but I got a notice in my Email, and just happened to look in on it, this time around.

Bummed out about the Govt Shutdown, and now Prez has gone too far, wanting to keep it closed.

As long as we seniors are not affected --- but there, one day, could be a "Grey Panther March" on the Capital!

Happy New Year to all, savvy.

Capt Jack Sparrow

Well I dutiful went to page 21 and started reading all the posts!

 

Smiley Wink Should have checked the post dates first!

 

But here I am finally, in the right place at the right time.

 

@hn1063: I am a big Star Trek and Dr. Who fan as well!

 

Nice to know there really is a Jack Sparrow.

 

On to a few of my hobbies, bullet point style:

  • I like studying archetypes: Enneagram, MBTI, Geometry, Five Love Languages....all that stuff!
  • I like relationship rich books, film and TV shows.
  • I am an equal opportunity dog petter!
  • I enjoy a life-long interest/passion for music--another form of archtypal patterns, by the way!
  • I love to travel. I have been to all but 2 US states (Alaska and Michigan). I've also traveled to Germany, Canada, Mexico, Amsterdam, New Zealand, The Carribean, Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Santiago, Easter Island, Cambodia, The Philipines and Istanbul, Turkey.

Hello everyone 

My name is Ms. Rain, I'm here from Indianapolis,Ind. I was thinking how nice it would be to find friends to communicate with, have some laughs, even join a group that loves to walk. I work alot and haven't had time to develope any friendships here but I'm always hopeful. 

Just dropped in to say,,"hope everyone has a beautiful start of the New Year and keep it going.  Life is precious make every moment count because changes are constantly happening. So smile even when you don't want to and stay postive no matter what it looks like.Smiley Very Happy
