- Real Estate
I love cats. I seem to have a special way with them. There's a mutual understanding between cats and me. I don't think I can save them all, but I try my best to save the ones who come into my sphere of influence. I'm currently involved in trapping, spaying/neutering and returning (TNR) feral and stray cats in my friend's neighborhood where there is a great need for that sort of thing.

My formal "job" is centered around real estate. I do a great deal of writing in my profession, and writing seems to be my only "artistic" talent. I love music, too, but I am not musically gifted. I like to listen to all kinds of music, but heavy metal is my favorite style.
I used to be an avid book reader when I was young. Now, with the Internet and my eyesight deteriorating, I don't read books so much anymore. I read Internet articles mostly, usually those involving cats, politics or psychology. I used to read some fiction when I was younger, but mostly the classics and some contemporary horror novels (i.e. Diary of a Vampire, Vampire Lestat, etc.). I prefer non-fiction for reading. I get my fiction from television and movies.
I'm a widow, and I lost my husband several years ago when I was in my mid 40's. We were together 20+ years. We had no children.
After my husband's death, I spent a lot of time traveling. I visited England often and went on many road trips with a friend. We also visited Scotland, France and Spain while I was there. In the United States, I traveled to the east coast and saw the sights in New York City, Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and some of Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey. I finally saw the Grand Canyon about 4-5 years ago. I've spent time in Arkansas visiting relatives, and made it down to Memphis once. Most recently, I lived for six months in Oklahoma. My favorite city is San Francisco.
I'm in a strange relationship with a complicated man, but I live alone. My tolerance for having someone around all the time is lessening as I grow older. I do enjoy my alone time, just me and my cats. I'm one of those Aspies who is indifferent to social interaction. I can take it or leave it. Mostly, I choose to leave it. Yet, I do enjoy socializing on the Internet.
SignatureHumor is the thread by which my sanity dangles.
