64, Mount Prospect, ILFinancially secure. I am recently retired from my job of almost 32 years, and now enjoying things I never had time for previously. I enjoy "do it yourself" projects (home improvement). travel, live theater, movies, museums, art, photography, flea markets, volunteering, barbequing on the grill, and people watching. I've served on the board of my condo for the past 10 years. Family is important to me. I grew up in a large family and continue to appreciate the strength and knowledge i draw from them.
74, Grayslake, ILBeing a wife, mother, and "Gram" have been the greatest joys of my life. I have 2 sons, one has gone home to The Lord, 2 daughters-in-law and 2 granddaughters. The blessing of bringing children into the world cannot be counted and watching the grandchildren grow is a reward to my later years. I cannot imagine my life without the love of family. I grew up in an Italian family with 3 sisters and 1 brother. Our culture was family, food, and Love. A lot of each. Over the years my family, friends, neighbors, and church acquaintances have helped to shape my life. I am grateful to them. For all of 45 years of marriage, I was a stay at home mom. For 11 of those years I worked part-time as a church rectory housekeeper. The friendships with clergy and staff were like an extended family. My love of art and dcor allowed me to be half of a team for the art and environment committee of my previous church. It was a blessing and a challenge to design and implement the church interior dcor to make it a space that was uplifting and beautiful. The greatest challenge was Lent, Holy Week, and Easter. The greatest reward was Lent, Holy Week and Easter. Was also in the art department in Religious Ed for quite a few years. There were always projects for decorating different social venues within the church and I personally almost always had some project going on. I lead a simple life and things enjoyable to me are musical plays, reading, a good movie, walks in my community by the lakes, watching for fish and wildlife, painting and art projects, gardening around my house, being with family and friends, Adoration in our chapel, dry flower projects, the mysteries and specials on PBS, watching the Thomas Kincaid sunsets on my front porch, watching hometown football games, and good conversations. Not necessarily in that order. Even at my age, I am a hopeless romantic, loving movies where the girl always gets the guy, "mushy" greeting cards, flowers given with love even if they are dandelions, and quiet walks and moments with a loved one. I love parades, marching bands, and patriotism. I hope I am sincere, attentive to those who have needs, compassionate, patient, loving, able to forgive, able to learn and grow in my walk with The Lord.

67, Alsip, ILI enjoy many things, family, movies, sunshine and nature. However I am no longer willing to sleep in a sleeping bag! I love to travel, by car, by plane, by bus or by ship.

I work full time because it keeps me busy and I am good at my job after 35 years. I am looking for a sincere friendship and companionship. I love to laugh. I am a loyal friend and expect the same. Everyday is a new day, a new opportunity to find my way on this new path in my life. I admit to watching a few Television programs weekly during the regular television season. I am looking for someone who laughs and smiles. I like animals, i have two cats. If your looking for company, to share a movie or dinner let me know! Being alone is not impossible but it is not always enjoyable.
