Retired at age 50 from Verizon, born in Connecticut, raised in Long Beach, CA, traveled and lived in Baja Norte, Baja Sur then retreated back to Tuscon, AZ where I met Charlie. Casting my wish out to the universe, wanting to meet someone on the Gulf Coast...the wish was surprisingly answered when I chose to search online at Plenty of Fish. My byline was "Must Love Fishing" and lo and behold, after one or two requests, Charlie answered my request with..."So, does this mean you don't get seasick?" and so a relationship was conceived. That was in May 2012. He was a transplanted Californian CFO for a risk management company in Marana, AZ. In addition to being a CFO, he is a retired math teacher of 28 years from San Bernardino, CA.
