I was born in Des Moines, Iowa in 1960. I have an older sister and brother. I was raised in rural Iowa and lived for a year in Washington State. I lived in Des Moines and Omaha when younger and lived for 10 years in a tiny town, East Peru Iowa in Madison County Iowa. Growing up I had dozens of different kinds of pets and have always loved gardening and history. I have lived in Yuma, Arizona for the last 3 years. I am 42, white and single. I have never had any children. I like the internet and having penpals. I like politics and learning about new things.
