My self-summary
Here's a word-picture of me...

I'm 68, 5'7", ~188...black(thinning) hair, brown eyes with glasses... I'm told I look a lot like Cheech Marin, the actor...true, I'm afraid...:>(
(NOT that worried about it... :>) )

I consider myself a Romantic, kind, intelligent, respectful,
sensitive, caring, observant, friendly, SINGLE guy, with
Ethics and Ideals.
Sometimes stubborn, but not to extremes.
I like almost all types of music, with Jazz, Latin, Classic Rock, Classical, and
Blues being my favorites.

I love LACMA, the Huntington Library, the Southwest Museum, and various art venues...I've read up on Egyptology, the Two Rivers Civilizations, Pangaea, Ur, Sumeria, Amerind culture etc...recently read The DaVinci Code... interesting work of semi-historical fiction.
I'm interested in everything from A to Z.

I'm bilingual in Spanish and English...used to teach Electronics in both languages...at the same time! Now THAT was a chore! ;>)

I'm retired, so I spend a lot of time slowly renovating my house in Eagle Rock(between Glendale and Pasadena), which I paid off in '90.

I also volunteer at a Nature park, where I feed and care for hundreds of
ducks, geese, coots, herons, and egrets...they are my friends...I have a wild goose friend that sings to me...:>)
I visit them every chance I get.
It's spiritually renewing!

Not athletic, and Don't play sports either...walk several miles most days, and like watching basketball playoffs...baseball is nice to sleep to...:>)
I am Romantic, affectionate, and kind....;>)

PLEASE NOTE: I DO NOT OWN A CELLPHONE. DON'T LIKE THEM.

On a typical Friday night I am
Usually curled up with a book, with a glass of Diet Mt Dew in hand.
I'm NOT a party-person.

Maybe watch an hour of TV a night, like "DooWop on PBS".
