Name:
Pen, Penny, Lovely Penny!! (don't you dare start with the farthing, happenny or pitstop)

Occupation: Can't work. Two reasons, the main was is that I'm caregiver to my sick husband (major stressful) and I haven't got a greencard yet. But, I do the maintenance on a big sailboat, a 28' speedboat, a rubber dinghy, a house, 2 cars and the garden, it keeps me sane.
Dream Job? Lighthouse Keeper on a big deserted island. Somewhere warm.

Age:
Prefer not to say, but lets just say I just had a BIG one and I'm still in denial. Old enough to better start eating super healthily and taking my vitamins. Old enough that hangovers are now going to be a thing of the past (ha ha). On the other hand, who's the one that climbs up the masts on all the boats for the locals -a 80' one on the weekend. People always think I'm younger than I am, hell, I know I'm younger than I am.

About my Dog: Mollie. Blue Heeler / German Shepherd. My little therapy dog - my life became whole again when I got her. I thank the powers that be for her every single day. Must mention my cat, Windy, a white one with black bits. A joy, absolutely completes my little family. Wish I'd known a long time ago that I liked cats.

Interests:
Sailing, Swimming, Diving, Exploring, Fishing, kyaking, Dogs, gardening things, taking stuff apart and putting it back together again. (if I'm not on DFC for a while, you'll know my computer is spread out all over the floor). Walking/running, Travelling, learning new cultures. Tramping (you call it hiking).

Favourite Music: Springsteen, Cold Play, Pink, a lot of NZ bands, Rob Thomas, ACDC, actually, I think I like almost everything except most rap, most country, and classical sends me to sleep.

Favourite Authors: Can't name one particular one. Memory's on the way out you know! I love non-fiction, auto-biographies or adventure history like Shackleton, Everest, Explorers, Sailing, Submarines etc. I think one of my all time favourites is Gypsy Moth Circles the World by Sir Francis Chichester. Bet none of you have read that!

Favourite Quote: Not sure right now. They change as often as my mind. Mostly stuff about just doing what you want with your life, you only have one life so screw what others think, do things that make you happy. When you are on your deathbed and look back, what are you going to remember? I can honestly say this is how I've lived my life. I'm a bit wierd.

I love the sun and being on the lake. So... I gotta get the hell out of western Washington sometime very soon! I love being social. I love my friends and family and can't get enough of spending time with them. Someday, I hope to enjoy hiking as much as you all do. :wink:

Occupation: Airboat Captain in the Everglades

Age: I am celebrating the 20th anniversary of my 21st birthday.

About your dog(s):

Hoodlum 1-Shasta, (named after Mt. Shasta in CA...a favorite place of mine: Lab mix puppy about 5 months old, brother to Sakari. Handsome and is going to grow up to be beautiful. Already loyal. A little slow with new tricks but eager to please.

Hoodlum 2-Sakari, (means "sweet" in Eskimo): Lab mix puppy about 5 months old, sister to Shasta. Smart as a whip! Incredibly intelligent, unreal, mensa dog. Also heart wrenchingly cute. She knows these things and uses them against me at every opportunity. Still working on loyalty.

Interests: Apparently I'm obsessed with raw meat and dog poo. I also like to read, a lot. I also adore felines. (I had to put that there...the cats were glaring at me and threatening me.) I also love my Kindle. And, if I had the money, I would open an animal sanctuary...that is my dream and major interest in life.

Favorite music: Ska, punk, reggae, electronica, world, Irish music and every once in awhile, a "bubble gum" pop song catches my interest.

Favorite book: The Dark Tower series by Stephen King.

Favorite quote: "I'll be at the bar. If I'm not back in 10 minutes....I'll be at the bar." (I don't drink much at all but the quote killed me the first time I heard it. I think it's from Roseanne Barr.)

PICTURE OF YOU: Uh...I can't. All the other ladies are way prettier than me and are giving me a complex.

Occupation: Just graduated college, so still figuring things out, but right now, I'm a pet food rep part time...

Age:23

About your dog(s):

Abigail Hound- 1 year old bluetick coonhound mix/maybe some sort of herding dog. She's a big doofus, and as most of you know, is uh, "socially challenged", but she is the love of my life and I just burst with love whenever I look at her...

Murph- 1 year old dark brindle french bulldog. He too, is a big doofus, and always makes me laugh and smile. He is told several times a day how handsome he is, so I am sure he thinks he's the cats meow. He's incredibly small and compact, esp for a male frenchie, so people usually fall in love with him and his whopping 20lbs of pure cuteness, most of which, is in his noggin.

Irma- 11 month old dark brindle frenchie. Though she is not legally mine, she is in my heart and i'm sorta like her guardian I guess. Her nickname is "Goat" because she climbs everything in sight, and also rips apart anything she can get her paws on. She is hopefully going to begin showing in conformation in the next few months.

Interests: Dogs (behavior, nutrition, health, etc), music & pop culture, showing (mostly just watching though, I'm gonna try it out soon lol!), acting as a therapists to most of my friends lol...reading in the bath each day :D

Favorite music: Ummm, I guess you could call it pop punk/indie/emo/rock/etc. I also am a sucker for Top 40 stuff :) Some favorite bands: Say Anything, Eisley, Paramore, Brand New, OK Go, etc...

Favorite book: I'm constantly reading, but I don't really have a favorite. Weird, I know. I mean, I sorta like everything I read for the most part...

Favorite quote: I think the purpose of life is to be useful, responsible, honorable, compassionate. It is, above all, to matter: to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all.

-Leo Rosten
