My self-summary
If you grew up in a small town like I did, then you're probably familiar with "cruisin" the main street in town. I wrote this poem and based it on my experiences growing up in and around Bremerton.

Cruisin Pacific

Twenty one and life is terrific
Me n my baby cruisin Pacific
Riding in my 55 Crown Vicky
With a souped up motor and a cam that's tricky
Lowered, baby moons, and a dual exhaust
If you try to keep up, you're gonna get lost
Ron and Susan riding in the backseat
Cruisin night, man, what a treat
Radio dial on KJR
Music blasting, rockin the car
Eddie Cochran's got them summertime blues
Maybe he should join us on our cruise
Look, there's Joel in his SS Chevelle
I heard that thing really goes like hell
Then from the backseat Susan yells
Turn that up! I really love the Shirelles
Isn't that Nancy?
I wonder why she's not with Clancy
Who's that guy she's with?
Wow, did they just kiss?
A daddy's car full of honeys
I think the driver is that cute chick Bunny
There's Marie, the Bremerton ****
She thinks she's cool cuz her daddy's rich
She's out cruisin with her friend Lynette
I hate Marie, but I love her Vette
Oops, there's a cop!
Better hide that can or we're going to get stopped.
OK, who's in the mood?
I think it's time to get some food
I'll drive by the Arctic Circle
And see if stopping there is worthwhile
No, it's A&W that I prefer
I want a Papa Burger and an ice cold root beer.
It's too soon to go home and quit
We're going to make at least one more circuit

For fun, I write poetry. Here's an example:

Wow, 71 and I'm still living single
Maybe it's time for me to mingle
There's Plenty of Fish in the sea to catch
Maybe I should join the website Match
OK Cupid do your thing
And find me a woman to wear my ring
Senior People Meet am I really one of those?
Not much doubt about that I suppose
What's with Zoosk? What can you rhyme with that?
Don't care, just find me a woman who's not too fat
Some women's profiles read like a resume
Other women don't have much to say
Most women say that they are smart and funny
They like the outdoors and cute little bunnies
They want a man who's handy around the house,
Is a gourmet cook and can chase down a mouse
They like to travel both near and far
And are looking for a man who can fix their car
As for me, I'm looking for my last true love
Don't need a lot of fluff or cooing turtle doves
I just want to find someone who wants to be with me
Now and throughout all eternity
What I’m doing with my life
Basically, I'm just enjoying my retirement. When I save enough money, I travel. Otherwise, I spend a lot of time in my condo reading.
I’m really good at
Lots of things, but I think that I'm a reasonably good writer of poetry. Here's a couple of examples:

In my dreams I see
You and me becoming a we
Now that our kids are grown and gone
It's time for us to have some fun
Grab your passport and let's go
To places like Cabo, Paris, and Monaco
Come on, get up, get off your a$$
We're still young enough to have a blast!

The solitary trees look like abandoned lovers
Dropping their leaves into the river like old love letters
The leaves drift away and disappear
Just like the dreams that the lovers once held dear

Saw her today
Didn't know what to say
But my heart feels the way
That it did on that day
When she walked away

She lost her looks early
Which was just as well
Because her luck with men
Hadn't been too swell
Men she attracted were mostly inbred
Whose personalities would be improved
With a shovel to the back of the head
The first things people usually notice about me
My physical size. I'm 6 feet tall and weigh around 245 pounds. I'm not fat, though. I work out with weights and have a fair amount of muscle, especially for someone my age. See my pictures.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite books are murder mysteries. I like Jo Nesbo, Henning Mankell, Lisa Black, Jussi Adler Olsen, S.J. Bolton, etc. I'm not much of a movie buff, but will occasionally attend a movie. I like oldies rock, 80's new wave, punk, ABBA, some country, just to name a few. I'm not into fancy foods. I like the basics like hamburgers, steak, fish & chips, Chinese, Thai, just to name a few things.
The six things I could never do without
My car. My computer. My home. My friends and relatives. Books. The gym.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Right now, I think a lot about meeting an attractive, compatible woman for a possible LTR.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably reading a good book with the TV on to provide some background noise.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My late wife and I were nudists and belonged to a Seattle area club called Fraternity Snoqualmie.
