I am 72 years young, married to my first love for 52 years. We live in Maine, VACATIONLAND. We came here from England and intended to stay just 2 years. We have stayed here 51 years in the same city and have been very happy here. Our sons had to move away from here alas to find work. That gives us two places we need to go to visit. Our other son is in upstate New York. He is the closest but you cannot get there from here in the winter. There is just too much snow in the White and Green Mountains. Summer we try to catch up with the grandchildren.

Member Since: 1/8/2010

Fitness Minutes: 189,905

My Goals:
My goal is to be as healthy, fit and happy as possible. I like to see places in Maine in our small Motor Home and drive it as long as I can.


My Program:
I have always tracked food due to allergies so that goal is almost met. Improving my fitness (after a back injury cramped my style) is a little harder. I use my stepper to stregthen my leg that was adversely affected from the surgery. I love to walk outdoors in the summer. In the winter I have to overcome my fear of falling on ice so I walk on the treadmill daily.



Personal Information:
My name is Pat my mother was Nora, hence Noraspat. I was born during World War 2 in England. My mother, brother and I were homeless till I was about 10 years old. I never met our father. Our mother always told us. We will be Clean, Honest and you will both be well educated. That was the way it was. We were poor and happy living with any relative who would take us in for a while.


Other Information:
My husband and I rent movies, nothing nasty we lived with enough nasty in our childhood during the war. We like comedy and old classic Mystery. We miss Alistair Cooke masterpiece, the newer ones are often not as good as the older ones, times change and I do not. I ran an alterations shop in town for 24 years and loved doing it. The boys are in Upstate NY, California and Nevada and I miss them a lot.

    Thanks Pat for keeping in touch. DH has a lot of joint problems so we might end up south if this winter is as bad for him as last. Back east there is too much moisture for his joints. Take care dear friend. HUGS

    Hi Pat! As always it is so good to hear from you!
    I used to have a podometer, I don't anymore. But I seem to remember that it took me 1.5 hour to walk 10,000 steps, I think. So when I walk for 5 hours and 45 minutes, it would be roughly 38,300 steps. :)
    Thank you for your kind words and encouragements! Hugs from Paris! emoticon
