Hello, Ladies! Thanks for dropping by.

Here are my specs:

Widowed from good 31-year marriage. Young 69, good health and an inquiring mind. Retired writer/editor. Former trade newspaper publisher, college lecturer and sports parachutist. Into ballroom dance (have been dance host on cruise ships), photography, practicing a little bit of piano, camping, mountain hiking, and travel. Member, Seattle Art Museum. I can be both contemplative and spontaneous. I consider myself to be conscientious and rambunctiously prudent.

I have a wonderful son who lives in Germany and who would like me to come and visit. Want to come along?

I cook what should be the world famous Genghis Khan Meatloaf, an egg scramble that bears my name, and Aunt Charlotte's Caldwell Corn Bread. You haven't tasted any better corn bread than that. (I grind my own.) I also make a nice quinoa dish I'd like to share with you.

Been to Ecuador, Peru, Mexico, Australia, Hawaii, Carribean, Eastern and Western Europe, Canada, American Southwest and Cambodia. Recently visited my son in Nuremberg and spent 10 days in November ecotouring Costa Rica. I Speak a little Spanish, a little Russian.

Community service includes having volunteered with Habitat for Humanity, serving on a small town city council, participating in public health projects in Peruvian villages, traveling to Cambodia to participate in a capital-building project for impoverished fishing villages ( and volunteering in Tijuana on a home-building program.( Don't worry. I won't spend ALL my time away from home.

70th Birthday plans: I will climb Washington's largest mountain--Mount Adams. Climbing with me will be Wilson, one of those "indestructible soccer balls" being distributed to children in distress all over the world. Between now and July 2015 I will be promoting sales of that ball while training for the Adams climb. See", and At this writing (Feb 2, 2015, I'm 2/3 of the way to my goal of raising 100 futbols.

I live on Seattle's Capitol Hill.

Looking for: Long Term Relationship with someone who is bright, cheerful, confident, thoughtful and kind, with a sparkling wit and a degree of irreverence. If you are a widow, I have room in my heart to allow you to reminisce about the great man who left you. I don't feel threatened by allowing you your joyful past. Good memories are a good attribute.

I prefer someone who is financially secure (not looking for rich, just secure), comfortable in a evening gown or jeans; is assertive but doesn't mind if I hold the door; likes to hold hands when we walk; and is looking for LTR. It would be nice if you were tall, but not essential. I would like someone who reads and is curious and likes learning new things.

I would really like to meet someone who wants to travel. I can keep the expense down through the use of time shares in Europe and the Americas. There is a lot of world to see, and it's always more pleasant to be seeing it with the person you adore.

DANCE: It would be great if you are involved in ballroom dancing or would like to be. It's healthful and a great social activity. And it's very affordable entertainment.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
This changes as the days pass, but includes: Mountain hiking, learning what a great camera my smart phone is, and digitizing the rest of my hard copy photos. There's an infinite amount of space in my heart for those memories, but limited space in my condo. I trust you will be the kind of woman who will allow me heart space for my old memories while together we start building a whole library of new ones.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Ballroom dance, photography, writing. Quips. Cooking my signature dishes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall, 6'2". I'm gregarious. Also a little playful. Several people have told me that I'm kind.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't have favorite authors. I have favorite subjects -- physics and the universe, science of the mind, history, biography, the world.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My cameras, my hiking boots, my passport, my Tilly hat, my dancing shoes, and my banana smoothie when I wake up.
Number seven: My curiosity.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The meaning of life--what's it all about? ("The unexamined life is not worth living." -- Socrates) Another perplexing question: WHAT DO WOMEN WANT?!?!?!?!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Right now that's in flux.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Yeah, right. Like I'm going to put THAT on the internet.
