From a Woman looking for a man

She said:
Wow, what an interesting man you are. I like the fact that you know exactly what you want and are not afraid to say so. E-mailing is not a way for me to go so if you are interested in me please let me know and we will meet someplace.

My Note back to Her:

Dear Marguerite:

I have spent the last 14 years, traveling with horses 11 of those years. I have visited small towns and large cities - after all that time, I narrowed where I would settle down to two towns: Flagstaff, AZ and Boise, ID - they both have many common threads. I just purchased a small home in a location that will be the next gentrification of this city relating to the Boise River, The River Project, parks, and Kayak Whitewater areas...I'm very excited to stop in a town of this caliber in a wonderful location at a price that was a miracle for me - the home, of the many I looked at, was under contract - last minute fell through - I laid out the cash 15 minutes later and closed within three days - the gods knew it was my time and this was the place - That was two weeks ago - the house was newly upgraded inside and most of my stuff will be in there within one more week. I am blessed - (I am also not religious, not Christian - but "chosen' for the next phase of my life)

I own a farm in upstate NY which is in mothballs - my children want it - maybe next spring I'll go there and pick up my stuff - and bring it here.

I really have no plans to do any traveling - as I have done nothing but... for the past 14 years..... I had planned to move to Northern Italy, when I became 70, to live out my life in a small villa, espresso, a little wine and Northern Italian food for the remainder of my life - maybe another life... maybe another time.

you are an attractive woman - actually in my normal travels from Arizona in the Winter, I would go north and into the mountains in the summer then this year I was going to round Jackson Hole and work my way down through Colorado into New Mexico - BUT as life would have it - the brakes slammed up - and the Real Estate Market here in Boise embraced me... sorry for the seller... my money went mostly to lenders and a few thousand to the owner.

I am here in Boise where I can be viewed, but the words of my profile were developed to "capture" and were written by an "ordinary man" in an ordinary life....
