I love the great outdoors, hiking, camping --- also enjoy opera and Bluegrass and road trips at least couple times a year.
I enjoy and appreciate intellectual curiosity.
I've traveled around the world:
Philippines and Thailand as a young USAF Airman.
NYC, St. Louis, Washington DC, Orlando, San Diego and Los Angeles ~ Rome and the Vatican, Paris and Notre Dame, Normandy and Mont Ste Michel with my choirs.
New Zealand and Australia as a tourist......
I've hiked the AT in Georgia and Tennessee. Also hiked in North Arkansas and Kentucky ~ Glacier National Park in Montana, Rocky Mountain National Park, Grand Canyon and Petrified Forest...
Vanderbilt's Home in Ashville North Carolina ~
I love studying and visiting National Battlefields:
Gettysburg, Vicksburg, Antietam, Harper's Ferry, Wilson's Creek, Chickamauga, Lookout Mountain, Shiloh, Chalmette, Yorktown and Forts McHenry and Monroe.....
I've read biographies of Robt. E. Lee, Geo. Washington, Andrew Jackson, Winston Churchill, Geo Patton, U.S. Grant (and been to his Tomb in NYC), "Stonewall" Jackson, Eisenhower, Alexander the Great, Caesar and Lincoln.
My choirs have sung in St. Patrick's Cathedral, the Vatican in Rome, Notre Dame in Paris, St. Louis Cathedral in both St. Louis and New Orleans .... and the "Surrender Deck" of the USS Missouri at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii.
Not a day passes that I'm not grateful for the gifts my parents passed along to me: life, singing, reading, music and an appreciation for God's Good Earth...
Postscript: I am fanatic about liberty and freedom ~ I've read and understand our Constitution. I vote conservative. I am not a "Tea-party" member ~ but could be.
Our Constitution's second Amendment is no less important than the First.
I vote Conservative where finance is concerned. I am open to dating women whose politics is different from my own...it might be fun!
