Tell us about yourself:
I love to learn new things, especially in art. I've always loved to sketch and draw, watercolor and now I'm teaching myself acrylic. Enjoy the outdoors, gardening, fishing camping, etc. I need to have my retirement time make since. Not days that aren't structured as they were when I worked.
Area of knowledge and what I know well:
I was an accounting clerk for 46 years at an alcoholic beverage distributor. Very interesting business.

I am recently retired and still getting used to being at home all day.  I tried to get a part time job but no success. I would love to chat and get to know people from all over the country.  Maybe you can give me some advice on retirement loneliness!...
