I have a 9 yr. old son who keeps me on my toes. I don't watch TV
very often, but mine is almost always on. I would be more than OK
if I never ate another peanut butter, and honey sanwdwich w/ a side
of goldfish. My mother taught me not to lie, cheat, or steal so I
dont. I cant. If I were to try, to lie it would just eat at me, and
Id have to call you in the middle of the night to come clean, so I
could finally fall asleep. I prefer to be outdoors. I like to camp,
fish, hike, ride quads, shoot guns, and play/coach baseball. I am
fortunate enough to love my job. I try not to over use the word
"love," so as not to cheapen the meaning. That way those that I say
I love you to, know that I really mean it. I almost never use the
word, "hate". It is a harsh word that takes too much negative
effort to use w/ any real meaning, and I dont want my son running
around saying it. I should monitor my usage of some other four
letter words, but, some of them are so versatile, so I reserve the
right to use them when needed. Do I need to come out and confess
that I am not good at self promotion, or has that become obvious by
I am hard working, loyal, and a proud father
What I’m doing with my life
I have been working for the same company for 18 years. I am a
carpenter by trade, but now I just keep the job running
efficiently. I love what I do. I get to be outside, and orchestrate
the efforts of man, and machine while creating impressive/important
structures that are vital to the infrastructure of this city in
which I was born, and raised. I just made that up, cuz I didnt want
to sound like your stereotypical construction worker. I dropped out
of college when I realized that I could never work in an office. I
also get work with some of my family. Sometimes as many as 4 of us
will work on the same project.
I would like to continue to work hard for a few more years. Then I
want to take an early retirement. I have some land down near the
beach in mexico. I have plans to build on that land someday soon,
and become a beach bum. I kinda am now just w/o the beach. I wear
work boots all week, so I'm gonna try to get away with flip flops
as much as I can.
I’m really good at
Making things happen. Getting things done. Getting people to be
productive as a team. Paying bills. Sponge Bob trivia. eating.
Listening, but sometimes cutting people off, so I can say something
that I dont want to forget before it is my turn. I guess that would
make me pretty good at admitting my annoying habits?
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know, I'm not the type that cares much about what others
think of me. I mean, I do, but I don't dwell on it. I guess I could
ask someone, but that would make most people I know feel a little
awkward, I'll just say my blue eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I dont read much any more but I can; Where the Red Fern Grows, was
my very first good read so I should give it a mention In Cold
Blood, Mystic River, Angels and Demons. I cannot watch any TV show
that has a laugh track. I'll laugh when I feel the moment is right.
Not when I'm told to at the end of every line. That is all I end up
hearing 2 minutes into anything.
My favorite movies; Gldiator. Seabicuit, The Natural, all of the
Star Wars, God Fathers, And most John Wayne movies.
I like music of all types. From Bob Marley to Tool. I like
everything in between. I prefer older music, especially Old Country
music. My favorite band is Social Distortion.
Food? I have never complained about any meal that anyone took the
time to make for me. My favorite. . . lets go w/ seafood.
The six things I could never do without
Family, conversation, challenges, music, an open mind, and the
strength to forgive.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The world, the future, the future of the world, my place in it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually somewhere w/ The Dude, and a pocket full of tokens,
defending my Air Hockey -Word Champ status.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a spooner. I can give people their space if and when they need
You should message me if
You don't have to go out drinking to get drunk every weekend. If
your phone isn't the most important thing in your life. If you are
honest, loyal, and believe that any problem can be solved w/ open
communication, instead of hiding it, and hoping it goes away.
