Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
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
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
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.
