DRH - Introducing Myself

Hi, I'm Dan, from Palatine, Illinois in the US. I've only been using SilverSurfers for a couple days and thought it was about time to introduce myself here.

I'm just shy of 64, separated almost 10 years and just a couple of months in to divorce proceedings. After almost 10 years living alone like a monk, I'm starting to get ready to living a real life again. I'm hoping it won't be too long before I begin to make a few friends and eventually find a new relationship. Happy to chat with anyone, though.

Good Morning Drhansenjr!
I too just joined Silver Surfer! I see you’re from Palatine. I was born and raises just Southwest of Peoria. I bet the trees down there are beautiful. I’m so sorry to hear of your challenges, but you will get through it. Phew! 10 years is a long time, but I’m sure it helped you and your family grow accustomed to the changes. But, it also looks like you have decided to put all of that behind you and take a huge giant step forward! Wooohooo! Congratulations! Lol
Have a pleasant Sunday and enjoy the day ....
