Although I have good self-confidence and self-esteem, talking about
myself is difficult, but here goes. I have evolved into a
compassionate, caring, understanding and liberated man. I like to
think I am intelligent, but try not to let my thinking get in the
way of my feelings and common sense. I had my children late, and
thank God that I finally grew up...with them. Having kids when you
are a little older helps keep your mind young too. My children are
the lights of my life, (as is one little gray tabby cat, named
Poopoo kitty! Lol...long story) I was blessed with great parents
who looked young for their ages, and I too look 10 years younger
than I am. They gave me foundation, principles and lots of love.
Maturity has thankfully granted me patience, tolerance, wisdom and
peace. I continue to grow and learn about life's journey. I would
like to find someone who will share my love, interests, hopes and
dreams..but likewise someone with whom I can share her's. Someone
to care for and grow old with.
What I’m doing with my life
I work hard but try to have as much fun along the way. I try not to
take life too seriously, and roll with the punches. I enjoy my '57
Chevy, exercising, spending time with my kids and grandsons. I like
gardening, landscaping and fixing things up around the home. I love
traveling to new places and have been to 12 different countries and
every state in the US except for two. I like scuba diving, beaches
and most sports.
I’m really good at
Loving my kids, grand kids and kitty... and caring. I can fix just
about anything with a screwdriver and a pair of channelocks. Lol.
I'm a fair listener, and good conversationalist. I have always been
a great provider.
The first things people usually notice about me
My personality and humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
When I am fortunate enough to have time, I like the John Grisham's
series. I like entertaining movies, usually with lots of action,
although a good "chick flick" from time to time is great..like The
Notebook, Somewhere In Time, or Love Story.
I like all kinds of music from jazz to rock to country to blues. No
rap please. I like all kinds of food, but my favorites are Italian,
Mexican and Chinese/Japanese.
The six things I could never do without
Respect, appreciation, affection, mutual understanding, love and
God, of course.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can make myself a better person.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably eating pizza and watching a good movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once disliked cats immensely, but my children...talked me into
having one years ago, and now I really like them! That little cat
is now my best friend. Ha!
(PS: 11/26/12 - I am sorry to say that that little cat passed away
several months ago...it's like losing a child)
