My all time favorites are The African Queen, On Golden Pond, Thelma and Louise, Green Fried Tomatoes. I have to watch them any time they are run on tv. Also like chick flicks, and just about any others if they aren't too gory and violent. Also like the good action thrillers. Haven't been to a real movie for years - rent DVDs mostly and now have Video On Demand which is great except you can't pause the movie to take a break..lol.
All kinds of music except rap or heavy opera. Partial to old time country and western and bluegrass. I used to play the guitar and still play an accordion my mother left to me occasionally. I sang bass with the Sweet Adelines for years. I learned to yodel when I was about 4 and my big dream was to be a country western star and sing on the Grand Ole Opry. So much for dreams! Stupid me, I married a man that couldn't stand country music.
I like biographies, true crime books, historical novels and a good mystery now and then. Favorite authors are
Dana Stabenow, a local Alaska author
Just to name a few.....
Have read just about every self-help book out there and finally gave up on those..Also not into romance stuff....would rather experience the real thing, lol
MY FAVORITE COLOR
I just love color, no matter what the hue. Would have to say red is at the top of the list and shades of purple come in a close second. I get to wear both colors together whenever my Red Hat ladies get together....we make a very colorful group and get lots of attention/comments when we are out and about! Denim blue is also a favorite....I pretty much live in tee shirts/sweatshirts and jeans...I can dress up if I have to but would rather not!
MY FAVORITE FOOD
Love any kind of seafood (except sushi, we use that stuff for bait up here)! Stuff I don't like: rhubarb, saurkraut, pretty much anything that has a sour taste as I definitely have a sweet tooth. Get really hungry sometimes for a good meat loaf, roast beef or pork, potatoes in any shape or form, As for desserts, have never met one i didn't like!
I don't cook much any more so the microwave gets a lot of use...not much fun cooking just for me. I rely on Lean Cusine and Healthy Choice a lot and will steam up some veggies or make a cottage cheese, pineapply salad to go with. My very favorite meal to eat out is breakfast...a good omelet and lots of hash brown and toast thrown in!
I'm a lifelong Alaskan. I have 3 kids (2 boys and a girl), two grandsons and one greatgrandaughter, all here in Alaska. My oldest son has an air taxi business and takes people out to view bears in the summer, then flies for oil companies on the North Slope during the winter. My daughter is developmentally disabled and lives in an assisted living home. I live alone with my two kitties, Honey and Sonny. Worked most of my life as a Secretary and retired 10 years ago. I do some volunteer work at the Visitor's Center at our international airport which is a lot of fun. Try to get to Curves two or three times a week for excercise.
WHAT I LIKE
Nature, sunrises and sunsets, my two kitties Honey and Sonny, a good book, trips to my cabin at the lake, picking blueberries in the fall, watching and feeding the birds at the feeder, spend lots of time on the computer, and my family, of course. Getting together with my Red Hat gals for dinner, etc.
WHAT I DON'T LIKE
Drivers/texters on cell phones and tailgaters, icy roads, intolerance, bigots and narrow mindedness, mosquitos and spiders, religeous fanatics, unsolicited advice...., the rest I just try to ignore.
Digital photography, flower gardening, reading, spend a lot of time on my pc, especially since I discovered the Hill. Is tv a hobby?? Have to admit I'm pretty much addicted to it, especially in the winter when it's too cold to do much of anything else.
