Left leaning 70s throwback looking for other like-minded would-be hippies. Yes, in Dallas. I am soooo screwed...No, really, just looking for friends & conversation. Nothing elaborate. No pressure. Meeting is good. Dates are okay, too. I do actually exist on the physical plane.
Feeling a bit out of my depth here so pardon me while I meander through my so-called self-summary.
Feel free to ask me anything you want to know.
I'm a decent guy.
I don't own a Harley. Sorry.
I have a car and it's not on fire. Well, wasn't last time I looked anyway. Not a bad looking little thing. Not flashy, but it's sound and stays relatively clean.
No tats on me. Nothing against them-some are quite beautiful. I just never met one I liked well enough to bring home on me. Although I recently reconsidered after hearing Torn In Two by Ray Wylie Hubbard, but the mood passed.
In addition, I have three daughters two of whom are grown and married. The youngest one is a teenager and lives with her mother. She's at that age where she stays pretty busy so weekends at dad's are pretty sporadic.
Apparently, a chunk of it has been spent answering questions. I've answered a ton of them so far. Hope I get an A. Think I'll take a break from the questions for a bit.
Pretty good at telling jokes when I can remember them. But it can suck when I forget them halfway through.
Apparently, I'm not good at this whole online thing. Let's face it, I pretty much stink at it. Maybe "suck" is a better word. Certainly not very good at keeping a conversation going on here. I think I'm boring a few of y'all. I do better face to face.
I suspect I think I'm funnier than all y'all do. It always sounds pretty good in my head.
A few tunes I'm found of:
This a very old favorite that still moves me:
Warren Zevon - Accidently Like A Martyr
Somebody That I Used To Know as done by Walk Off the Earth.
Dawes - If I Wanted Someone
Million Dollar Bill
Just lately it's been a lot of Townes Van Zandt and Kasey Chambers.

Leavin' never hurts as much as bein' left behind...
-Robert Earl Keen
Helpless, helpless, helpless
Baby, can you hear me now?
The chains are locked and tied across the door
Baby, sing with me somehow
When I leave CSI, there won't be any cake in the break room. I'll just be gone.
From the first episode of the HBO series Bored to Death:
George: You’re like me, Jonathan. We enthrall and then we disappoint. It used to take me several years, now it’s a couple of weeks. If I’m with a woman longer than that, then there’s something wrong with her.
I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
You were famous, your heart was a legend
You told me again you preferred handsome men
But for me you would make an exception
Never sell past the close.
I can sense some of you pulling away from me. And all I can tell you is that I came a long way just to share a dream with you.
Our switchboards are now open for your comments and questions...
Food: Indian, Mexican, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, hot dogs, pot roast, pork chops, cat nose soup, salads, fish, fresh veggies...Whoa, get those lima beans away from me!
4. Sorta like my kids...a little. Maybe. Don't tell them, though.
5. Oh, COFFEE!! :::off to get another cup:::
6. IPhone with that nifty Hipstamatic app. Okay, I could live without the app, but it's a lot of fun.
7. A keeper to punch me in the throat when it's time for me to s.t.f.u. I should really move that to 1.
8. A well worn pair of boots. And jeans.
I think a lot about song lyrics and why I can't remember to write down the ones that come to me in the shower. I need some of those bath crayons you get for little kids.
How many folks on here have REALLY strong feelings about cats. What's up with that?
What the difference is between "mostly monogamous" and "non-monogamous" and whether the use of "strictly" isn't a little redundant. Maybe it's just me that finds this confusing, but an awful lot of people seem to blow off answering this at all.
How badly this profile needs some major editing.
That Quickmatch thing on the mobile app? I swipe those things like I'm on Tinder.
:::taptaptap::: Testing. One... Two... Three... Is this thing on?
I wonder if this is how the phone volunteers at a pledge drive feel. Can't even manage more than a few page views a month. Whoa, tough room.
Well, this is awkward...:::crickets:::
(FYI, the age limits aren't carved in stone. Just thought that was a good range.)
