Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Clean-cut, professional, physically fit, recently retired law
enforcement official, retired Marine Corps Officer, financially
secure widower after 32 years of a great marriage. I have one
daughter and two grandsons who live in Orlando and are not allowed
to visit after 5 PM or bring suitcases. I like the outdoors,
fishing and trips to the mountains. I've been told I have a sense
of humor. I have conservative political views and love my country.
I'm a bit on the shy side but usually don't have difficulty meeting
people. My hobbies include antique furniture restoration and I'm
pretty much a "do-it-yourselfer". I have a fondness for fine
European sport and luxury cars.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just wrapped up another professional career. Although I retired
twice before, I found myself easily bored. I don't see that
happening this time.

I like action movies and thrillers, particularly when they're
somewhat based on fact. I like 60s, 70s & early 80s music
primarily because I can understand the words. I don't care for the
old "twangy" country music. I much prefer listening to the newer
(2000 & beyond) country music artists. I prefer books based on
historical fact....too many to list.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
COFFEE!!! Someone to confide in, intergrity, honor, a sense of
fairness; the respect of others, good friends with whom I could
entrust with my family's welfare if necessary. (I guess that's 7 or

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Improving/streamlining things. I spend even more time thinking
about going fishing in the mountains.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Heading for Ellijay while smiling at the thought of grilling myself
a tender New York strip steak, baked potato and cobb of corn, along
with a glass of wine....look forward to it all week. :)

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are a mature women who takes pride in her appearance, has
common sense, with a sense of humor and are serious about meeting
someone who is (or tries to be) a gentleman....but, will have no
problem making you laugh. If you're as comfortable in jeans as a
LBD, that's a plus. If you don't mind a miniature Schnauzer who
thinks he's the "boss" in the family that's also a plus. Please
don't contact me if you're 25 years my junior. Although I'd be
flattered, I already have a daughter....one's enough :).
