Semi-retired and loving life in my fourth career. Seeking a
who is savvy on life and conversant about
what's going on in the world.
Two comments: (1) I'mENFP
. Decidedly extroverted.
My long-term goal is a long-term, monogamous, relationship. My
short-term goal is finding a lady with the same long-term goal in
And...(2) although my profile shows up as markedly Republican,
nothing is farther from the truth in reality. I'm very much
politically "middle of the road".
I am fun and funny, available, and attachable!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Having a fabulous time in semi-retirement! Absolutely loving the
"retirement" job I have, enjoying my coworkers, and enjoy the
corporate culture of the best company I've ever worked for.
Enjoying having more spare time than I've had in years. Enjoying
, meeting new
, having lots of fun. Traveling a good bit,
but I've always traveled. My middle name should have been GO!
What am I seeking? A traveling companion
buddy, someone who enjoys movies
, c&w dancing,
cooking good food
. Still looking, incidentally.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening. Talking. Cooking. Conversing. Reading for fun. Reading
for information. Lifelong learning.
And have become adept at answering all these funky questions!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm told it's eyes and smile, then sense of humor and great
attitude. That I'm friendly. Approachable. Great conversationalist.
Excellent listener. Self-assured but not arrogant. Mind like a
steel trap. Informed about what's going on in the world...That I'm
a "free spirit". Some would say a maverick. Some say they have
their own drummer. Me? I say I've got my own percussion section!
Yes...I "have my moments"! Don't we all???? I promise I'll make you

Love reading. Most recent read was John Adams. Others read recently
were Dan Moody, Crusader for Justice; Poland by James Michener (a
favorite author), Freakonomics, Return of the Godfather (a "sequel"
to the original but by a different author), Jesus, Elvis, and Coca
Cola by Kinky Friedman. Alan Greenspan's autobiography. I'm reading
my first Baldacci novel, and will soon read one of the Friedman
books on economics and world politics. Got any other suggestions?
Pass 'em on!
Love movies: Just saw :Letters to Juliet. Other faves: :Angels and
Demons", "Duplicity", "DaVinci Code", "Taken", "Adventureland",
"Knowing", and "Mamma Mia"....TWICE! Have been lusting after Meryl
Streep for years, even though she has four kids! She's awesome!
This is the best part she's ever played. This list is hard to keep
up with since I am a frequent movie patron.
Love to cook. Enjoy cooking from new recipes. Don't always follow
the recipe though. I like to compare and combine them. Just more of
the maverick in me.
I love dry red wines. The drier, the better.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Internet access, someone to talk with, Peace and Quiet, Texas
Brisket, Music, Online newspapers, and a good woman. Okay, that's
seven....so sometimes I play outside the box. And...number seven is
an elusive "quality". Pick your favorite six of the seven and
you've got me nailed.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How come people don't answer email, even to say "not
Will the Astros *ever* even get CLOSE to the playoffs again?
Has anyone seen "Dubya" lately????
Will the volcano in Alaska blow skyhigh? Maybe the heat will melt
the ice there and Texas will once again be the largest state!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday night is always good for late dinner and/or late
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I didn't do it...nobody saw me....you can't prove a *thing*!

Can "give and take" in life.
Don't take too much too seriously.
Don't expect perfection...I tried walking on water during Hurricane
Ike but my ankles still got wet.
Can just go along with and for the ride.
Seek a man who listens and offers advice only if asked.
And who is not bashful about asking for directions!
