Well, I'm popular on this site because I started it. :-)
Albuquerque is in a beautiful setting - sitting at the base of a big mountain in the "high desert". There's a river that runs through town, but otherwise it is very very dry. Big blue skies 330 days a year. Great for tennis but can be a bit windy.

Hey Catherine,

Yes it is tough getting old, you can't do the things you use to be able to do when you were younger. I am 40 but look around 33ish, but still remember so vividly how I was when I was 18-20. I am not a mere shadow of how good I use to be. We will all get old one day. We can only live for today, yesterday has already past and wont be coming back. I live one day at a time and try to enjoy myself. Everyday we wake up it is a start of a good day.
Nursing, yes, is a very difficult job and very stressful. But as you know it can be very rewarding also. It feels good to help people who really need your help or they just need your company. Never the less helping people is a great thing to do in life. Noone says life was going to be easy. Ok young lady I hope you get more time to practice. Have a nice day and always a pleasure hearing from you.

Hey Catherine,

I forgot to answer one of your questions about having a lot of time on my hands. I am a self-employed carpenter here in hawaii. I am lucky enough to just to have work about 15 hours a week to be able to survive and pay all my bills and still be able to do what I want. It really is an enjoyable life. I live by a way of life it is called K.I.S.S. It stands for Keep it simple stupid. Meaning a simple life is a happy one. To each to own, but by not having any children so far, I have had a happy life being able to do what I want whenever I want. Some people say it is selfish, but I say it is the perfect way for me. How about you??? What's going on in your life besides school?

Talk to you soon,

Scotty B.

Bye bye Catherine

Hello cutie,

Well a NRTP is for a rating system for which people who play in a league. If someone is a 2.0 they are a beginner, if they are a 5.0 they are real good. It is a National Tennis Rating system on your level of play.
Anyhow, I will try to download some more pics of me. I do think I look pretty good for someone who is 40 y.o. I try to stay fit. I hike 2 times a week, golf 18 holes 1-2 times a week, shoot pool and play tennis usually 5-7 times a week. All sports are great. Sports have always been my life, it keeps me out of trouble and it keeps me fit. I think most Americans like to sit home and watch tv too much as well as eat too much and that is not good mentally or physically. Ok Catherine nice to hear from you and look forward to your response. Have anice weekend.

Caio cutie,

Scotty B.

Maria Sharapova will soon be World no. 1! Nothing surprising about that.. But I'm still sad Justine Henin retired! She really played her game well.. I have also got a favourite tennis player, Ana Ivanovic. She's just awesome. I seriously think she's the best, and she is definitely better than Sharapova.. I just love her solid ground strokes, and I have told myself, I must play like her one day!

Yay! I have just created a Singapore Tennis Group!! Really can't wait for many to join!! I'm so excited!! =)

I'm the one on the right. The other is my second sister. It's totally cool to be able to join this tennis social network! To be able to interact with people who share the same interests! Back here in Singapore, I seldom play tennis with my friends. They are all so good in their strokes, I just started beginning of last year and I still need tons of practice!

Instead I will practice my serves alone in school usually before my classes in the morning or after school, under the burning sun!

What is your occupation? You sure have lots of time in your hands! Which country are you from?

Hi Catherine! It's great to have you here! You should start a Singapore Tennis Group and invite all your friends. This site is growing by word of mouth - so why don't you become the mouth over there! LOL

This is our *new* generic welcome message that, fortunately, is required due to the enormous growth. We're growing by 100 new members a day, and we just couldn't keep up. But that's a good thing. ;-)

Invite your friends too. We’re trying to reach 20,000 members by Wimbledon. :-)
If you need any help, let me know.

You just joined a super fun and infectious "community-based" tennis social network which connects tennis players, fans, coaches, and you.

To get started, please upload a photo or avatar for yourself (if you haven’t already.) Whether it's of you, your dog, or your racquet it doesn't matter, but it helps people remember you. You can also personalize Your Page with pictures, links, RSS feeds, colors and more here.

If you are looking to meet people for tennis matches, Look through the Groups or create a Group of your own and invite your tennis contacts. It's a good place to keep in touch with everyone in your circle.

Here’s a primer on how to meet other players.

The Forum is really the hub of the online community. Other places to explore: post youtube videos, add your own photos, write your own blog.

…and just hang out and meet great people.

Welcome aboard,

Good morning Catherine,

I do wish this was Singapore, so we could hang out and play tennis all the time. Tennis is a big part of my life as well. Usually 5-7 times a week, but i also golf and hike often also. If yuo ever make it out this way, give me a call. I am glad that your family is safe. Which lovely lady are you in the picture??? Caio for now. Scotty B.

Is there anyone here who stays in Singapore? So many of the members here are from the States, and I feel so left out!
