Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Gee, this is kinda like a resume? I worked in the Food industry for
over 40 yrs. I was a salesman and a damn good one. But the
unexpected passing of my fiancee @ age 57 pretty much sucked....
...well....I retired early but still keep active with the things
listed in "what I am doing with my life". I am a very forward type
man....meaning I get to the point right away.....( in sales its
necessary!!) but I am a pretty soft touch....I would love to get
the closeness, warmth of a lovely lady back in my life.....I think
we all value the closeness that happens with someone you
love....... Last winter when I was doing my bit as Santa.....I
watched the couples as they walked down the mall together.....very
few held hands....let alone walk arm in arm or an arm around
torsos.....I will never and never did take the woman beside me for
granted.....life is too precious and short to not care deeply and
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
"Getbusy living..."(part of a quote from Shawshank) I have a part
time job with the Meals on Wheels folks, that i just love, I also
play the Murder Mystery host at my local B&B. I garden and just
finished an "above ground" flower box 4ftX4x24ft that I planted
almost 400 tulips, unfortunately , varmints ate 90% of them before
i put up a fence!! I also have gone into beekeeping....I had two
hives last year, one colony didnt make it this winter, so this year
I will have 3 hives as I ordered two queens/brood assuming I would
lose both hives... .. i DONT hunt, fish or camp!( isn't that a
shock!)! My idea of camping is at the STPaul Hotel(one of my fave
places, maybe I could take u for dinner there? :) ) I do love the
outdoors and own about 5 acres of ground, I have 49 Oak trees on my
"home" lot . I do support the idea of hunting and fishing though.
Oh, and I have recently started some golfing again.. My golf bud is
83 y/o and I can't always beat him!!! Lol
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Well, I think I am a great cook, my son says I am a soup god :)

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The love of a great woman, everything else, is well.......... just
.....but......maybe I should count my children, especially my grand
daughter, Grace and my newest granddaughter Madelyn b.3/24/2013
:)..... Oh, and I don't care what anyone thinks otherwise .......
The greatest invention..... Ever..... Indoor plumbing
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Women and their vanity. I believe it was the ultimate demise of my
fiancee. I also contemplate my life as a retiree and where it leads
me. I also, find it highly amusing, that 99% of the women on this
site think they cannot live without coffee, chocolate, wine and not
necessarily in that order, hmm makes me wonder if ----- well never
mind! It is a fun observation though:) I also, note with some
amazement how so many,if not all, women on this site fawn on and on
about how great a mom/grandma they are and -----yet, not one
comment (despite in some cases many years with their spouse, before
a divorce ) how great a WIFE/PARTNER they were!! Why is that?? (
since I wrote the previous comment, I have learned that too many
men blew a relationship with what seems like a Goddess cuz of
booze, drugs, infidelity or a combo of all 3... I find it amazing
that men are that stupid .... !!! Well, maybe not...sigh) I also
believe that chivalry should still exist....I should be kicked in
the butt..should I not remember this..... !!!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I am usually at the VFW ( I was elected Chaplain of the men's
auxiliary 4/16)running the meat raffle and trivia contest and home
by 8pm!! I lead the patrons in the bar in a salute to our veterans,
and will sing Happy Birthday to anyone who will admit they have one
that night. My father named me for his bros KIA in WW2, when I was
a kid it did not mean much, but it sure does now......
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I usually sleep in flannels during cold weather :) I also AM Santa
Claus , and (i do grow my beard out ( starting late Sept) shave it
off 12/26) have for 13 years now, it is a responsibility I do not
take lightly, so sssshhh don't tell any kids!!! I NEVER drink soda/
pop and have not for years.... I also, buy bottled water(I have
seen how its made) 10-5gallon jugs at a time to drink at home and
carry an insulated jug in my car most of the time. AND .....I am
retired so I can and will travel to meet the woman of my dreams....
:) Oh, and I am a rabid nonsmoker....dont even think about
it....and I am not "into" tats .... No matter how small......
I should also comment on "peeking" at your/my profile....I cannot
tell how tall, age a lady is looking for etc until I look at the
profile.....If I DONT send an email....it is probably cuz I saw
"something" that was ....ah........amiss??? I will not send emails
to ladies that have practically squat for a profile OR pixs....I
have lots of pixs....I expect a lady to have at least 3 , including
a full body pix ( I am always interested in what a lady wears for
shoes....LOL ) I also like to see at least 200 questions
answered....I have a somewhat "thick skin" cuz of the nature of
sales sooooo I am not in the least bit offended if you look at my
profile and dont send an email. Oh.....and for the ladies that are
in their 20s 30s DONT BOTHER .....I am not that kind of guy .....I
dont care HOW sexy you think you are.!!!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You love my smile :) also, if you like a brutally honest and down
right frank and blunt man, i pull no punches. I am a fiscal
conservative( the govt. pisses away too much $$$$) BUT a social
liberal, I have friends of color, am pro choice, and i believe the
LBGT folks are entitled to their happiness, if u think differently,
from this philosophy , fine, i can respect that, but long term, we
might not get along. I also think flowers are the way to a woman's
heart :) and do not bother to contact me if you have a
Facebook(rarely use it is ok) acct or your cell never leaves your
hand..... Why? Cuz I want a relationship with an adult not a
Also, I prefer a lady 5'6" or less ....and 68% of women are plus
size in this country.... Which is just peachy with moi ....
