I was born and raised on kitsap lake in Bremerton,wa. After high school I spent ten years in the fishing/processing industry,offshore Alaska. In the summers I regularly worked at waterski schools in California. I have lived and worked in Wa,Ca,Or, Ok,Ak,Hi. I was married briefly,(what was I thinking?!) and lived in Vaulion,Switzerland.Before becoming disabled(ha) I was a fanatical soccer player, loved it,couldn't get enough of it! Same thing goes for waterskiing! I will ski again.My sister died last Feb,my mother and brother also. I raised two step children from grade 2 through high school,but have no blood offspring of my own.(regrets).I am almost totally alone.Some people seem put off by my colostomy and the outspoken way I handle the subject-but I wouldn't want to be any other way.

Had anal cancer,chemo &radiation didn't do the trick so I ended up with a permanent colostomy, my partner of twelve years promptly sent me to the curb,where I am now trying to rebuild my awesome life.Boyfriend didn't like my new belly-button butt-hole. HIS LOSS. I would like to be in a relationship again, but what I really want/need is a friend. Someone who lives in my area,likes the outdoors,going to movies,has a sense of humor and is non-judgemental. HEY THERE,TODAY'S THANKSGIVING- I AM THANKFULL THAT I AM ALIVE AND RELATIVELY HEALTHY AND FIT.i'M ALSO THANKFULL FOR MY AWESOME APT,MY NEIGHBORS AND THEIR LOVELY DOGS,(AND CATS),THE NEIGHBORHOOD CHILDREN. I'M SOO THANKFULL THAT I SEEM TO BE 'OVER'MY EX. I DON'T EVEN HATE HIM ANYMORE- I AM INDIFFERENT,YEEHAW!LIFE DOES GO ON, AND IT GETS BETTER.DW
