A recent road trip
I have sent a few email notes to ladies on the Yahoo Personals site recently. I got an answer back from one over the weekend and I think we are going to get together for a mocha and to talk. SW says to meet as many different folks as I can and try to enjoy just meeting people. If the right one comes along, then I'll hopefully be able to recognize it. I have to try to not get too invested too soon again.
My Navy son drove up after work today to spend the night here, rather than sleeping on his ship. Nice to have him around.
Glad to hear your friend going ok after her dental work.
Take your time meeting new ladies and we will find someone in time
remember Slow and steady wins the race. Take care.
I always enjoy your blog , and your last few photos are as always GREAT, you have a great eye , Good luck in the Personals , take care , and when you see Huggy you know what I want ya to do for me hahaha
Take care Mr Mocha
That's a great idea about leaving more than one email. I know it's just a matter of time before you find her.
I also agree with your friend Rain's comment about meeting quickly to avoid letting fantasy take over.
The first penny I'd spend would be on what I think about you looking for a new woman.
I've been at both ends of the receiving line on this one. I've had a mother die, a father quickly remarry and I've been left after a husband died and have looked for a new love. Both of those situations have taught me some truths.
The truth of the matter is, no matter what your children or grandchildren are telling you, they are still going through the loss-process with the death of their mother/grandma. You bring in a new chick (regardless of age) and you'll open a can of worms you may not think exist, but they do.
What to do then? In a nutshell? Nothing. Oh, I don't mean sit around on your butt and sulk. Hardly. I mean get out there and go on those trips on the bus, visit friends, have coffee with cute gals -- but do it because it's good for you to be out with people. Don't do it because you're "looking for THE ONE". Do you see the difference?
You've been public transit driver for years and now you're retired? The chances are you aren't in the greatest of shape physically. Do something about that right now. Meaning begin right now. Focus your energies on getting in the best shape physically that you've been since you were, oh say thirty or even twenty-five years old.
Got hobbies? Go for it!! Join groups that focus on those. Go to church and volunteer at the hospital or a youth center.
Forget replacing your Annie or anything that even slightly or remotely resembles doing that. Focus on your grandkids if you have 'em. Focux on your son and DIL. But don't let them be your end-all be-all for social activities.
IF "she" is out there...you will attract her! You will attract her to you because you will be thinking positive, happy, loving thoughts. Hopeful thoughts, uplifting thoughts, I-can-do-whatever-I-set-my-mind-to-do kinds of thoughts. She will be drawn to that. If she is to come to you she will. If NOT, then what do you end up with?? A truly interesting and fulfilling LIFE. That's a great thing to have with or without a partner and the only way one gets to have that is by not "looking".
I hope some or all of this has helped you a bit? It's free and it's from the heart of one who knows what they are talking about. Truly.
Just been to leavenworth myself traveling from Oliver to Seattle, will post some pics in a few days, then drove thru Mt vernon on the way back to BC in the rain.
while in Auburn, went to look at the Tacoma narrows bridge construction again, more pics soon from my blog
"Anonymous" has some interesting things to say, and I agree with many of the things they say. I guess everyone has different ideas. Just do what feels right for you, take things slowly, and everything should be fine.
Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs for Huggy. Take care, Meow
