My self-summary
After decades in St Louis offices, I have retreated across the river to take control of the family enterprises. Now it's my chore to modernize and update things which has been a challenge in this economy, but challenges are good. Being my own boss, I always have time to set my own schedule which always includes a mix of city and country activities....city for great food, entertainment and culture...country for peace, quiet, star-lit nights and freedom from neighborly intrusion.

If that sounds attractive to you, I would enjoy hearing from you. I would really like to find someone willing to share the adventures that life brings us. Life was not meant to be lived alone, but is much more enjoyable when shared side by side.

I have lived an incredible life, but there is so much more ahead.
I have more than enough stories to bore anyone, but I promise I'll keep my mouth shut unless asked. I'll tell you mine, if you'll tell me yours.

I am definitely not a fan of conflict - it is a useless waste, and hardly ever accomplishes anything. I do try to accommodate those I am around. I realized a long time ago that when the people around me are happy, life is much more enjoyable. I probably do go the extra mile to help people enjoy life around me. But that certainly doesn't mean I allow people to push me around or take advantage of me. I prefer to say I pick my battles carefully, and always go into battle prepared to win...and win, I usually do.

I have flown planes all across the country. I have raced sports cars at professional tracks all across the central section of the nation and have shared the tracks with a number of drivers commonly thought to be among the best racers in the country. I am no wall flower, and not afraid to mix it up when I want to, but I am constantly reminded of the phrase from the Tom Cruise movie, Top Gun, in which his carrier commander reprimanded him by warning him that "His mouth was writing checks that his mind can't cash." I definitely prefer to live my life making sure that my mouth writes only those checks that my mind can cash.

So if you're looking for someone to share the adventure that lies ahead, give me a chance. I know we can have some good times ahead.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
finding someone special to share travel and life
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm usually watching history, discovery or food network, but very willing to go out and explore St Louis if I'd have someone to show the town.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that I really hate being alone so much of the time.
