I am looking for a normal unpretentious woman to hang out with and hopefully more. The shorter the distance between us the more likely we will happen. I like living alone but I also love entertaining weekends.
I keep busy Monday-Friday, not saying its cast in stone, if I get a better offer I certainly will consider it. I am a Home Body I LIKE to stay home. One of the main reasons is all the traveling I did 1960-1990 I am not much of a one for commercial travel including airlines, cruise ships, ferries, Amtrak or Greyhound. I DO enjoy short and longer ROAD TRIPS driving my own wheels.
Also staying home means I can feed myself a healthy diet all day for a small portion of one Denny's check. I get my daily exercise done since I have a Marcy Home Gym plus a half acre hilltop lot that needs daily maintenance this time of the year - when now and then water falls out of the sky - invigorating the weeds.
I do not water anything out there except one plant that drinks my kitchen sink rinse water that I collect in a bucket. June will be my three-year anniversary of when I dramatically cut my water use to an average of 25 gallons a day and I have maintained it since.
I was a Haight-Asbury Hippie before the word was invented. Being a Jack Kerouac acolyte in high school even dressing all in black like Jack. January 1961 I journeyed via the Hound from my Frozen Northern Beginnings to Baghdad by the Bay -- San Francisco -- where Jack made his Winter Headquarters at a North Beach coffee house.
THE BEATS were OLD white haired guys who liked to sit around and smoke pot and cigarettes and play chess. The female of our species was thin on the ground among the old Beats.
There was a group of we younger folks of both genders who naturally flocked together and we began exploring San Francisco on foot as a group. Golden Gate Park attracted us, finding an existing Bohemian Neighborhood nearby was the icing on the cake.
"Most" of the "straights" looked down their noses at us -- we DID dress and act out in public to blow other peoples minds -- while the population of this crazy neighborhood treated us like normal folks, so we moved in. I was there January-March 1961-1964. The other nine months each year I was off making a living.
Growing up I spent much of summers with my Dad aboard ships he was a crewmember. Following in his footsteps 1960-1976 I was handsomely paid to roam the world as a crewmember on seventeen commercial tramp cargo ships. Commercial ships are either Liners who follow strict published schedules or Tramps with no schedule who go wherever there are cargoes. 1976-1990 I was with Westin 1981 I was the first Westin Energy Manager. 1990-2002 I was an IBM PC computer tutor here in North County.
