News Flash: Moving to Richmond, Va in March.
Self summery, huh?
I’m an old fashioned romantic – a one woman guy – I view the world
through a scientist’s eyes but interpret it with an artist’s heart.
I’m a lover and peace maker. I am a straight forward guy who
believes that without honor a person (man or woman) has nothing at
I am not here to meet as many women as I can but to find one
special woman. Not one with hidden agendas or one looking for an
easy way out of her present crises, but someone who wants to fill
the void in her life as much as I would like to fill the void in
What I’m doing with my life
I have been a professional mariner (at varying levels - a captain )
for a good part of my life, but I am trying to come off the water –
professionally that is – the salt is too thick in my veins to leave
the sea for ever, but I’m just plain tired of being out to sea for
long periods of time and away from those I love!
Summer 2011 – I moved to the Morgan City area. The small company I
work for started using a marine facility there where we can
renovate supply boats and other marine equipment. My work is mostly
as Yard Foreman, Marine Systems Engineer, Port Captain, U.S. Coast
Guard and C.F.R. Liaison, "hack" welder, Ditch digger and grass
mower, ... I even wash the boss's truck occasionally ... a great
My artistic endeavors are on temporary hiatus - "creative block"
and all that!
I’m really good at
Oh ... I'm really good at a lot of things! 3D art and graphics and
!; Mechanics; Computers; Electronics;
Philosophical and Scientific debates; working with my hands;
cooking; baking; listening; conversation about ALL kinds of
subjects, procrastination ............. er ............. when I get
around to it; growing eatable things in the garden; understanding
animals; Jack of all trades! ... Oh ... and modesty, too! =D
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am one that smiles easily and frequently so that the lines
in my face resulting in such activity are permanently etched. They
aren't wrinkles - it's permanent personality!!!!! My brother mostly
notices that I only have a "hint" of gray in my hair - but that's
because his is rapidly turning white! (Finally! Being the younger
brother has an advantage! Ha-ha! ... no , really, I love my
brother, but ... Ha-ha!!!)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This one could be long, but for now I'll keep it simple. I like
Beach music to shag by (lazy-man's-jitterbug - You girls from
Carolina know what I'm talkin' 'bout), science fiction movies and
books, and I'll eat anything ... I'm a sailor, what can I say.
The six things I could never do without
I don’t know! I’ve “done without” a lot of things at different
times during the course of my life. I’ve come to realize that what
a person WANTS and what a person
NEEDS can be worlds apart.
Basically as long as you have food to fill your gut and a way to
get in out of the rain, you don’t need much else to live.
Beyond that, self respect and a person to wrap your heart around
makes all of life’s short-comings a whole lot more bearable.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What the heck do I want to cook for dinner tonight! Good grief!
It's a nightly thing! I can do some pretty nifty things in the
galley but it seems a shame that I'm the only one around to enjoy
it! Oh well - tonight it's crab stuffed mushrooms and tilapia
poached in a white cheese and black pepper sauce, with honey
glazed, wild green and black cow peas (hand picked growing out of
the wharf bulkhead wall), , and a chocolate and coconut custard I
"invented" last week. OH! and let's not forget - homemade (from
scratch) dinner rolls! I think a LOT about
different ways to bake bread! ...... mmmm ...... chocolate custard
On a typical Friday night I am
um .......... like how long ago are we talking here? I USED to go
out for dinner and dancing on a Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a very romantic, warm hearted, physically natured fellow when
I'm in love. ... and that's all I'll say about that!
You should message me if
Message me if you are really here to meet an ordinary but big
hearted guy. I'm no pie-in-the-sky Prince Charming and won't
pretend to be just to get your attention.
Message me if you like romantic, candle lit dinners with quiet
conversation over coffee that goes well into the night.
