Hello Mrs.Rashad Please don,t think this rude of me.I lost my wife not long ago to cancer.We talked about different things.One of those things was.If you could date anyone in the world,who would it be,and why.My answer was you.The obvious of course was she is beatiful and elegant.The not so obvious was the chance of posibilties.Would she accept an invitation to go on a simple picnic and a move,could she put on a pair of jeans and feel confortable taking a walk on a chilly day. After the walk having a hot chocklate or hot tea.If you ever get a chance to visit Washington D.C or Maryland please et me know. Michael
