My self-summary
Generous, kind, and warm-hearted to people and pets. I have ease of laughter; am respectful of the "power of havoc" and tides; irreverent, yet sensitive; lover of warm friends, cool music, and a finely "tuned" phrase.

I have lived in NYC for over 30 years; had loving, long term relationship with a lovely, Irish lass for a couple of years shy of 2 decades, with no kids and one dog.

Have major wanderlust. Whenever I travel I always want to see what is over the next hill and beyond the bend in the road. I usually combine "Lonely Planet" research (Great Travel Book Series) with dumb luck discovery. Camera in tow captures sights and future memories. Still shoots film and will soon change to digital format. Heck, I am still wearing bell bottoms. (Just kidding. Did I just write the word "Heck?") Travelled to Asia, Europe, USA, and more. El Capitan (Yosemite), New England fall foliage, Piazza Navona (Rome), Magens Bay (St. Thomas) are spectacular. (I am on the road and in the air less now than in the past. My wanderlust is still intact, yet has evolved to regional and local sights.)

Studied voice, guitar, cello, and classical kazoo in my youth. Love of music never dies.

Prefers MoMA over Met; Yankees over the Mets; Fairway and Trader Joe's over Met Foods; and Blue Note over Met opera.

Work History - Corporate retail and then wholesale executive.

My Pix taken 2011 & 2013. Edits can happen at any time.
Would prefer to only date members residing on Manhattan. NO pix = NO reply. Please have your photos be current-ish, your essays be filled out in some depth, and your profile be truthful-ish.

Please do not "wink," "favorite," pinch, or poke at my profile. Would prefer your email, if interested. Several engaging sentences would be great for a start. Might not be immediate reply, but will write back.
What I’m doing with my life
Always looking for the funny bone in life and people. Laughter and humor can be quite the contagious condition for many of us.

Assessing the bottom line in situations. Navigating a course of action.
I’m really good at
Seizing or taking a moment; capturing a photo; turning a phrase; writing with dimension; creating without borders; seeing the funny, irreverent bent on a situation.

Making peace; making trouble; making up; making a connection; making a mess; making it right; making mistakes; making nice; making do; making an argument or case; making a difference.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well . . . hair piece just got trimmed; prosthetic leg fits like a charm; chin implant looks quite natural; and speech impediment almost cured. It's curious, you can barely hear my lisp when I type.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Loves to listen to bebop jazz, as my username suggests. Something to do with that toe tapping, finger snapping, and spirit lifting. Add a few measures of blues, some rock, R&B, and a pinch of soul. (Then stir)

Prefers pastrami over corned beef; half sour pickles over full sour; and egg rolls over spring. New England lobster rolls trumps the Asian rolls. Hamburgers get ketchup, while hot dogs get mustard, not the reverse. Prefers home cookin' over eating out; muffins over cupcakes; and Dunkin' Donut or Illy coffee over Starbucks. (Gasp!)

As you are searching my profile for elements of compatibility, I need to disclose something, which could be good AND bad at the same time. I really do not like brussel sprouts, snails (aka escargot), anchovies, raw oysters, and malt vinegar on anything. Now if any of these four foods is actually a deal breaker for you, please note the potential upside. You can have my portion, in addition to your own, which is truly a win-win situation. How lucky are you? Right now you are probably slapping your forehead in utter amazement. You know, like the V-8 juice slap. You are either thinking that I must be so kind and caring, extremely generous and self-sacrificing, (and probably quite cute) or . . .

Was college English major, yet these days read newspapers du jour; internet sites / articles; ingredient labels at the supermarket; music discography books featuring reviews and historical info; concert schedules; as of late, these profiles.
The six things I could never do without
Great friends; live and/or recorded music; camera; love and affection; "Jamoca Almond Fudge" ice cream. Raspberries. Side splitting laughter. Of course we might need some financing; a food supply; laundry detergent; and a great coffee maker. Personal toiletries would be nice. Comfortable shoes wouldn't hurt. Can't forget toilet paper. Luggage with wheels and a handle. A coin jar. A roof over my head. A Sharpie pen. A Swiss army knife (one with a corkscrew) Absolutely joyful greeting given to me by my dog, when I walk in the door. Sloppy puppy kisses on my face. A hot shower.(Especially after my dog slobbers on my face.)

Lump crabmeat, when in the mid-atlantic states; bbq ribs, when in the south; lobster rolls, when in Maine; coffee and macadamia nuts, when in Kona, Hawaii; tortuffo, when in Piazza Navone at Tres Scallini (Rome); farm fresh corn on the cob or vine-ripened tomatoes, anywhere; assorted wines, when in Napa, CA; sushi, when in Kyoto; and of course, just plain bread and water, anywhere when I am with someone I love.

The creator / author of this form must have meant the "six hundred things I could never do without."
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Well, not a lot of time, but do remember how much I enjoyed being in a loving relationship with someone amazing. Everything is wonderful when sharing that elation, that high. I do miss that in my life to be perfectly blunt with you. Am hoping to find that euphoria again. It is a great wish for my bucket.
On a typical Friday night I am
Not one for typical evening activities. Every day is different. Could be doing a little of this, or a lot of that. Not mysterious, just no major pattern of events.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Truth be told, I never studied classical kazoo in my youth.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 52–68
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
I have sparked some curiosity, made you smile, and shown you a bit of myself you might want to experience and hopefully enjoy.
