I am Alyson. I arrived on this planet at the VERY tail end of the 60’s. I’m tall - 6’0” - and am of very mixed European backgrounds. I’m interested in politics and have been invited to join MENSA, but I refuse to pay to be part of an organization. The invite was enough for me. I’ve been married for 30 years and have 3 adult children. Now that the arthritis has set in well, I’ve learned to love crocheting - mostly using string as it’s more portable. I used to be a cyclist, biking at different events around my state and even in other states. To be completely honest, the name ‘Alyson’ reminds me of a plump 3 year old with chicken pox. I think it’s just an old memory, my first understanding that I was ‘Alyson’. I renamed myself Allie at age 13. As a younger person I lived for excitement and new things. I was usually the leader of the pack - especially if it meant teetering on naughty or just full on naughtiness. I’m a smart ESFP, although I tend to be S in, N out. I’ll let you figure that one out.
