Just a friendly note here. NOT your permie queen responding, as I happen to be male, straight, and sadly about as far from Hawaii as one can get. I just wanted to observe that your post is very well written, so keep up the good work. For some reason, permies posting in this singles forum seem too often to be singularly challenged when it comes to writing even a passable personals ad. I mean, how can anybody of at least average intelligence write a personals ad and not think that identifying their own gender and in which state they live is a good place to start?! Anyway, your homestead-in-the-making sounds excellent. I hope that you and your daughters will be happy there. BTW, you will want to see to the accidental emoticon in your post.
Good luck to you!

Oh, BTW, please accept a little advice from someone who has been dating online off and on for a decade now. Pictures are truly worth a thousand words! Post a few good ones of yourself and your place and you will see the attention people pay to your post multiply by a huge factor.
