I was raised on a farm in northern Minnesota. I have fond memories of seeing all the babies born in the spring, playing baseball in the pasture using dried up cow pies for bases and trying to stay away from the fresh ones! Learning how to drive a tractor, milk a cow by hand sitting on a "T" stool and making butter. Of course we had to do the stuff that wasn't as fun...like picking rocks, chopping wood, bailing hay and stacking it in the barn. I'm looking for a cowboy who will treat me like a lady. Sing to me by the campfire. I'm a nurse by trade-work from home so I can take my job where ever the internet can reach me. I Love to cook, bake and cuddle up by the fire place on cold winter nights. I don't like snakes, but I have been told I'm pretty good with my pistol! I would love to raise Alpaca and spin the wool into yarn. I have a 31 yr old daughter (also an RN) who is married (1 yr no grandbabies yet) in Colorado Springs CO and a 29 yr old son who was an active United States Marine for 8 and 1/2 yrs who is attending college in Vienna, Austria that I would love to go and visit. My daughter told me she saw the perfect bumper sticker for me-it said "I may look harmless, but I raised a Marine!" My mother's favorite saying was "THE LAND OF THE FREE BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE"! I come from a military family and am very proud of that!!! I don't need someone to take care of me-I would like to have someone to be happy with-GOD willing-for many happy years! I lived in Minnesota in a big city, but I also had a 55 acre city park for my back yard!. Moved to Colorado Springs to be close to my daughter and son-in-law. I lasted for 6 months and had to get back to my roots. I'm now living just outside a little town in MO-loving life here, but would love to have a cowboy in my life.
