Dislike much of what passes as modern "music" … loud and often crude, although the occasional rap lyrics are very clever, with astute observations

Nonfiction and historical novels
Children's/teens literature
Delighted to have found a great local female therapist who gives homework assignments

Occasional cinema visits
Appreciate anime and animation although generally I prefer live action

Walk most days
Use a wheeled walker for distance mobility
If I know a participant, I like being a spectator

Be wonderful to have an activity partner - moved late 2017 and really miss chatting across the kitchen table - cat is great company but has limited conversational skills (smile)

Men … if you have a significant other please note I am NOT interested

Thank you for the smile too and in your lovely words and profile. Also your care of dementia & Alzheimer caring (which also is not dissimilar to my significant partner ) In reading your profile tat then would , sadly "exclude me from becoming a "Companion" for you as I respect your wishes.
If you wish to go from there, I am still here... Mick (I used to live in Geelong too)
