My self-summary
I'm a Memphis native but have been in Nashville about ten years. I have been in the music biz (writing/recording/touring) all my life. I play piano and other instruments and have had my songs recorded by numerous artists and have toured through the years with lots of acts.(most recently with Delbert McClinton).
I enjoy playing at "ole folks homes" a lot these days. It gives my life a sense of purpose and my gift a sense of good stewardship. : ) I often wonder who gets the more out of the music~ them or me. I play and sing boogie woogie,ragtime along with standards or whatever they holler out.
I am a dog lover and imported/bred/raised and trained Belgian Malinois and German Shepherds for many years for different agencies-including the Nashville Metro PD,FEMA, DEA< TEMA. I have a German Shepherd companion dog, Jazzbo, but these days training working dogs is now more of a hobby.
I'd like to meet a fun companion/friend to hang out with, share and enjoy life's lil' surprises and mysteries's that simple. I am not a pushy sort, try to have healthy boundaries (heaven knows I've put years in tryin to!) and appreciate simple things in life. I would love to meet a friend and companion that turned into a romatic relationship. That, I would love and what many of us dream about. I KNOW WHAT I'M MISSING! Been there~done that~an wanna do it again!
My pet peeve is controlling or rude people. I have an "active" sense of humor : / sometimes rather oblique..but it works for me and others usually. I pro'bly wouldn't hit it off with someone who doesn't see the ever present humor in life...even if it takes a minute.
I think there's a lot of truth to "the best things in life are free".
..and inside's where the most precious beauty lies...and friendship is indeed one of mankind's greatest treasures..or should be. I don't want to take some one for granted. I want life to be free wheelin and the moment..the only one we have. It's these moments that matter.
What I’m doing with my life
Well, I am trying to stay in the moment. I am active with my music and can't imagine not being. I treasure my friends and enjoy their company..which often includes music. I have been blessed in having a profession and friends that share my artistic interests. I am given to folks who appreciate it (ole folks homes) with music and it gives me purpose. They love me~I love them!
I’m really good at
Perceiving what someone is thinking sometimez.. I finish too many sentences...gotta work on that.
Swatin flies. Aww man..this question..."is not in my comfort zone"... NEXT. I was raised and am modest and don't like braggarts
The first things people usually notice about me
Just gimmie five minutes alone with the sumbitch that thought up theze dumbass questions ! I'll put the Whop Bop a Lu La La Whop Bam Boom on his ars!!
"O 'scuse me dear!..just doin a little anger work here.."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like stuff that has feeling and moves me. I am an emotionally driven person and have often said I just wanted to be an adult on the 1st and the 15th. Food..? I like to cook but I'd like someone to cook for more. A good MOVIE? Yeah! Esp. WITH someone you wanna be with! Sharing stuff is 1 + 1 = 3 again..make that 5.
Music~ if it's done with feeeling I usually like it. Rap..nah. Opera.."let's sneak out the back baby". Basically there's two kinds of music~forget the gendres, GOOD and BAD. I'm partial to the GOOD! I like goin round hearing my buddies an playin withem (3rd and Lindley, the Bluebird..wherever). Friends come here and I go to their studios too~have piano will travel.
Books huh? ALL AND EVERYTHING~Gurdjieff (that's a funny joke)..worst book ever written.
Since I got my eMachine (a dedicated compouter for HD TV) I've been enjoying TONS of documentaries and "better quality" info and entertainment. A lot of Comcast's premium channel stuff is on the web fer free. Lots of the beaten path film interests me...I can dig an EMAX trip now and then just for the sensory experience tho!
Six things I could never do without
...having somethin fun to do and somethin fun to look forward to
Love .. and I could use a companion to share my love and life with..a lover and a friend for the long haul.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what I'm thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
goin with the flow~on hot on my pursuit of happiness!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There are two rules
1. Don't tell all you know
You should message me if
It sounds to you like we have similar like what you have read, we have common interests...or you just want to.
An hey..BTW! If you only want me for my body take a hike
The two of us
