I am an avid reader, mediocre bridge player, and a master knitter of scarves. I teach reluctant seniors the basics of composition. I like cats, tolerate other peoples dogs, and avoid insipid people whenever possible. I am so bad at telling jokes that not even I will laugh at them. I sing in the shower but have few other nasty habits. On cold mornings I like to stay in bed, especially if I have a good book near to hand. My favorite meal of the day is breakfast when I have the time to eat a hearty one. I have been accused of snoring but I have never heard it myself so cannot verify the accuracy of the report.
