Here's the deal. Yes, I'm 70 (continue reading please) but no, I'm not old. I'm youthful, trim, fit, playful, and full of life. I'm also bright, honest, witty, inquisitive, a bit quirky, unpretentious, and a terrible speller.
I enjoy conversation and I can talk my feelings. I like to explore. I prefer small dinner parties to large gatherings. I consider children to be one of the great joys of life. Dogs are good too. And wildlife, birds especially. And bugs. And porches. I like the outdoors, especially water and trees. I like history, back roads, small towns, and salt-of-the-earth individuals. Baseball is good. Italy is very good. And music, of course. I write for pleasure, currently short, short stories. I live simply and like making a difference. I consider the trade-off of youth for wisdom to be a splendid bargain.
I value friends and family and take time for those who matter to me, including my daughter and her five young children in south Florida.
I am now on permanent vacation and in the midst of relocating to south Florida myself. I have a home on Cape Cod and will likely buy a place in the south soon.
I'm seeking a bright, slender, interesting woman with similar interests/values who would rather do something other than shop, for dating, companionship, and wherever that might lead.
