Carol
Age: 61, but parts of me are brand new (left hip, one WEEK old!)
Widowed twice - Viet Nam, cancer - can't seem to trick another one - might be a bad risk!
Work full time managing a beautiful golf club/restaurant in Harbor Springs, MIchigan.
Born and raised in Detroit, parents came from Belgium and settled there.

No kids, no ex-husbands, own my home, car, fur coat, jewelry, grand piano, cruise at least twice a year (25+).

Trivia nut, mostly baseball (lived next to Norm Cash for 2 years). Diehard Red Wings fan.

On cruises, can be found at the Piano Bar, either singing or playing - I'm a self-taught yet amazingly mediocre musician.

Planning on winning the lotto so I can take a round the world cruise.

Jennifer from northern Arizona. JosÚ from Costa Rica. We currently live in the Arizona desert, a Phoenix suburb, and we have a small, I repeat SMALL, house in Costa Rica. Jennifer - 52, JosÚ - 60. We have 6 kids, 1 in California and 5 in Costa Rica. We have 12 grandchildren, 2 grandchildren who came into our family by marriage, 1 great granddughter and another great grandchild on the way.

I manage the office of a window manufacturing company. I've been there since before dirt was invented! ! JosÚ is a waiter. Our one pet is Oscar the Shih Tzu and he is such a lover and good companion! We love to cruise, but it's hard for JosÚ to get away, so we don't go as often as we'd like. We do try, however, to get away for occasional 2 or 3 day weekends. Even a mini vacation is bvetter than no vacation!

Angela Z. (44) from Orlando (originally from Trenton NJ but wised up when I was 17)
have been married to Dave (47) for 22 years. He's from Jacksonville FL but has also lived in Connecticut growing up, back to Jax, Atlanta, NC and finally Orlando where we met when we were in college at UCF and he was scoping out my roommate!

122 kids.... 120 in the marching band and daughter 17 and son 14 (he's counting the days until his 15th birthday and learners permit.....argh.....)
Daughter will be leaving home this fall for UNF in Jax.

I work for the state as a sanitation and safety specialist (specialist! imagine!!). Have been working at the health dept. for 20 years. Dave works for a food service distributor dealing mostly in meat.....the longer he's worked there the less I like meat! He's been there for 22 years. I love seafood

We've been on 2 cruises to the Bahamas, Alaska, and Baltic capitals and will hopefully do a Carribbean this summer if only someone would buy our old house!

Dear Thomas, as much as I would like to respond to this, my DH says firmly, no. He warns against doing this sort of thing on the internet. So regretfully, I remain simply . . .

I substitute teach and am teaching Spanish in a local high school now. Jeff is an engineer that makes cruising possible along with our 2 cherubs , Jamie and Pete. We also count as family, Honeybelle and Larry, my twin cats. Angela, yes, I should also add my 87 kids that I see on a daily basis as a good portion of them cruise also. We live just north of St Pete Fl . Got Jeff hooked on cruising and the kids too. Only way to vacation with kids

HI........ We are Lee and Kelli from Sparta, WI. We have been engaged for 17 years.
I guess there is no rush. Kelli is a travel agent and I am a retired police LT. We like
antiques and we LOVE cruising. Our next cruise is on the Horizon on 9/5/04 out of
Norfolk to Bermuda. First Celebrity cruise and first time to Bermuda. Between us we
have four kids all gone from home. We are both empty nesters!

Lee is 53 and trying to hold on.
Kelli is 44 and looks much better than I do!!
We have done 14 cruises. We love Vegas to.

Our favorite cruise was the Norway back in September of 02. We met some super nice
folks that we still stay in contact with. WE really enjoy this site but rarely post.

Lee and Kelli from COLD Wisconsin
