Hello to you, Thanks for visiting my profile. I am semi-retired,
which just means that I am too poor to live on my retirement
income. I work as a contractor at a small plastics firm here in
Charlotte. I live simply with a housemate, stepdog and stepcat(in
picture) After over 25 years in management, I have found that the
stress-free life is sweet. I have lived in cities as diverse as
Washington, Raleigh, Asheville, Miami, San Juan, etc. I have
traveled in Europe and Uncle Sam gave me all expenses paid trips to
Vietnam, Thailand and Korea. I was born in Charlotte and will
eventually die here (hopefully, not for a long time).
What I’m doing with my life
I enjoy working to finance my travel habit, The company I work for
is small, management is terrific, and my coworkers are a fine group
of people. My schedule is flexible, giving me the freedom to travel
to places like Las Vegas, New Orleans, and Atlantic City.
I’m really good at
I am a poker player,, specifically, Texas Holdem poker. I played in
the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas last summer and I travel to
places where they host poker tournaments, mostly casino
destinations. I enjoy the ambiance of poker rooms in the casinos
and enjoy meeting players who share my passion for poker. There are
few feelings as intense as playing head to head with a tournament
championship on the line.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a great sense of humor. Some of my jokes are real groaners,
especially my puns. I enjoy causing people to laugh and am capable
of laughing at myself as well.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy reading and music of most genres. Favorite books are by
authors as diverse as Colleen McCullough and Kurt Vonnegut. I
especially enjoy historical fiction and nonfiction. My musical
taste varies from 19th century American music (Stephen Foster, for
instance) to rock from the 60's and 70's. I am a little overweight,
so I must like food of all types. Nothing beats a medium rare
ribeye, except maybe Alaskan King crab legs, etc.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Historic events which have shaped how we are today along with
thoughts of what tomorrow will bring to our grandchildren.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I am not traveling, I am at home, playing poker or bridge online
or reading. I live very quietly.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I told everyone the answer to this question, then it wouldn't be
private. I will save this one until I meet someone in person and
develop a bond based on trust and respect.
You should message me if
you are looking for someone who is kind, decent and appreciative of
the joys in this life.
