No pics this time.  Just to keep myself writing.  I just got back to working on my downstairs apartment.  Looks like my daughter may need it in a few months.  Hope she comes to help me get it ready.

Funny how life is.  I finally am feeling a need to date again.  I don't think I need a man in my life but would like to share some time with one.  Most friends, as great as they are, have partners and don't have the freedom to just go and do something.  I do have the freedom and I am spontaneous.  I will drop and go at the first sign of something interesting.   I signed up for one month on a date site and it is certainly an experience.  After the month is up I think I'll go volunteer somewhere.  I think my chances are better.

I did what they tell you not to do and that was I gave out my email address.  I figured "what harm"  Can't tell where I live from that.  But he was a hacker and got into my email address book and sent out a virus.  He dissappeared from the date site immediately and when I looked up his screen name it was gone too.  Then I looked up the name I got out of the screen name and the man wasn't even the same guy.  He was a professor at a college in Mass.  I'm sure he wasn't even aware this jerk was using his name.  Oh well, live and learn.  The virus is gone and I am the wiser.  the funny part, if there is one, is that the next guy I thought was really cute and I would like to chat with told me he wanted to communicate via email and I had to deny him.  He said he was only going to be on the site for 2 more days before his contract ran out.  Of course with all that cuteness he had a dog in his lap.  A Sheltie.  How could I not like him? LOL  Well, now I don't know if he was legit or not.  I do have his email but refuse to write him.  Dang.  What to do.  I think I'll just stop looking and let someone find me. 

I am going to focus on fixing up the downstairs and will post pictures of that.  I don't know how much art I will get done in the next few months but will definately stay in the groove watching your blogs etc.  I do so enjoy seeing what you are all doing.  You motivate me to be creative and I really appreciate all that.  Such talent among you all, it's hard not to keep watching.  I hope you all have a wonderful new year and I'll be watching.



  1. I understand how you feel Peggy. Men can be lovely and different companions than women. It's not about needing them around all the time. And its can be wonderful to have that option.!!! At the very least, the online dating thing definitely leaves you with stories to tell. Sorry about the hacker. I would have done the same thing!

  2. Hi! Welcome back! So brave to be willing to enter the dating world again.

    What if you made a separate email address like using Hotmail, and didn t link your address book or link the accounts? You d have to sign in and check it, but at least you d be available online in case the doggy guy or next one, is legit? If you did that you can give everything fake, fake birthday s not like Hotmail cares.
    Don't use gmail for it bec you already have a google ID via this blog...

    You d also have to start over at the dating site as a new person/ID. Email me if you need more input, ok?

I love your holiday gift projects! the recipients were lucky ladies! good luck in your search for companionship...anyone is lucky to have you in their lives and fate will work itself out. it's good to see you putting yourself out there to help fate along.
