Introduction for Lexus1

I am from Northern Michigan. I have lived here all of my life. I love my life here and cannot picture being anywhere else but here! I am married and have 4 grown children. I have 7 grandchildren. I live for my children and grandchildren. Spending time with them will always put a smile upon my face. Sure, our family has gone through some pretty tough times but at the end of the day we are a family that loves and cares about each other unconditionally. I have a part-time job as a toll-collector on a beautiful bridge. There are many things I like about my job but the one that comes to mind that I like the most is I get to look out of my toll-booth window and soak up the beauty of not only the bridge but Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. The freighters that sail through the Straits are so mighty and strong and to watch the sun go down on a hot summer night is to die for! I love to fish, go camping, and sit on the beach while my grandchildren play in the sand building castles. I am currently looking for a new puppy for the dog I had is no longer with me and although I will never replace him I miss the presence of taking care of something that needs me, depends on me. My favorite food is pizza. I enjoy going out for pizza but I love making my own! I don't drink alcohol but love my Diet Mountain Dew which I get preached at from my daughter not to drink because it isn't good for me. She is probably right but I just have to have my Dew! I love to travel in Michigan because there are so many interesting things to see and do. I love going to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan because it is so beautiful there. There are miles of land between towns and it is breathtaking to see the waves of Lake Superior come to shore. I also like to look for rocks along the shoreline. I am 53 years old and I love the life I have. I am a down-to-earth type person and am pretty easy to please. I am a simple person with simple needs.

Sounds quite an idyllic life and at least the diet dew is better for you than the full sugar variety

Welcome here at Persona Papers! i hope you enjoy it here as you enjoy your job at the bridge! I bet it is so cool to write and brain storming all day in a sea! I wish I could see sunset there and see the beauty of the sky in a calm warm summer afternoon there. God bless. Thank you for being a great grandparent. Its hard to find one now.
