My self-summary
Hi, and thanks for visiting!

Pour yourself a wine or other adult beverage - get yourself comfortable and enjoy the read. And ride.
This profile, written in journal form - free verse with a side of e.e. cummings is constantly under revision and change as I am - even at my age - in a state of evolvment so come back often because you might find something that resonates

If you just want the nitty-gritty then scroll all the way down to the "You should message me IF" and then up to the "what I'm looking for" section. However, if you desire an interesting "summer read" then keep reading...

I'm RETIRED - into Photography and travel... with a side of tour guide and movie extra... a bon vivant racontuer hidden inside a crusty exterior with many a tale to amuse...

Today: (5/11/17) major re-revision of this profile...

From time to time I put into port for a little compass recalibration - contemplating the options and directions before I sail out to box the compass: or quit the journey entirely. I couldn't bear to kill off this profile, etc., though - too much time invested in it..
This time I'm putting into dry dock for a major overhaul. Care to leave your mark??? You might find me to be your perfect summer project. You're invited to give me a proper careening and heave down and while you're at it to refine and enhance the rilling on my screws and rudder...
Born NYC, raised on Long Island (orig Halesite), moved to Manhattan 1998 and left in 2006 - retired and traveled around the U. S. with my 12 Schnauzers. Landed in Nawlins in 2008; it's time to leave...
I had cancer (2015), gained weight lost my hair but am still the loveable cantankerous carmudgeony 'Cranky Yankee' I was before.
Still see at least two films weekly and have the travel bug - BAD, trying to get to Arches NP for at least a month as well as the EAA fly-In in Oshkosh, Albuquerque Hot Air Balloon Fest, Burning Man in Nev. and maybe Sturgis to experience the chrome (July 2016). Ok, did the Balloons - and am in Montana now (12/2016) - ok, I'm back. Hey, go watch and photograph the Solar Eclipse with me in August...
Lastly my dogs are gone which is a big emptiness that will never be filled...
Do you enjoy discussing politics or life? It's a rant in progress...

Part 2: The GOOD, the BAD and the Ugly:
This is my good self - the wild and crazy, zany, raconteur.
Revision 3.2 (08/31/2013)with 4000+ questions answered (all of them) and 220+ Tests taken!!! Of course OKC is done with the tests now - too bad...

MID Term: I'm on a mission - looking for a co-pilot to join me on a few TRAVEL bombing runs... If you're looking for some exploration or engaging discussion come with me..., or come to photograph as well. Or write. We can be a travel "team."
Do your good deed for the day - be my MUSE. I'm planning really hard on leaving New Orleans: no specific itinerary nor schedule - just camera in hand - remember I'm retired ;-) . Afflicted with the travel bug... I'm planning on spending 1 year in each of the following (no particular order) 4 Corners Native American country, California, Oregon and Washington and their coasts and Alaska (ventured to Montana and Spokane 10/16.) Then I plan on venturing abroad to Ireland and Scotland each for a year and perhaps Italy and France. I have this urge for a Kilt! And Guinness and Jameson and competing in the Galway Oyster Eating competition!!! China, Japan and OZ, too. Did I tell you I plan on living to 100??? Be with me. My heart can be hijacked! Interested in the ultimate ROAD TRIP? Ready to experience an enjoyable adventure of a lifetime? Come with me... But prepared to get dirty because I explore adventures like Indiana Jones...

Obviously one of my vices/passions is photography and down in the NAWLIN'S there's plenty to shoot. My red carpet friends who/m I use to run w/ back East nicknamed me the "UNpaparazzi" paparazzi because I don't CHASE anybody! Many stories you'll love to hear. Lets go on photo safari around town, mine or yours and we can see what develops or if you don't know how I'll show you. If not just bring some images - show me yours and I'll show you mine. ;-) Either way it's a no pressure adventure - we'll learn a lot about each other - and, you'll have a great time. The worst that can happen is you'll leave with great timely images of yourself for your profile page!!!!!And lets face it there are way too many terrible images on these pages.

I played lacrosse and college soccer as a goalie;
goalies are different - they have a different perspective...
On everything...
I DO...
I was a GREAT youth league soccer coach - if you have a kid/s who plays that's a plus. I'm open to an "instant family" and opportunity to be involved in character building. I snow ski and yearn to be a ski bum - a least for one season.

I'm the original "Wild and Crazy Guy" and the model for the John Belushi/Blutarski character in Animal House - I can make you laugh. Or provide you with provocative, insightful and intelligent conversation.
I have a slow hand.

Sometimes I like to force a square word into a round hole because words have meanings: don't get yer panties in a wad because I suggest we sit and indulge in some intercourse... you will at times be aware that I can be quite the cunning linguist...😎
I'm competitive - when I want to be: When I play 3rd and look to my left - I'm even with the pitcher not the SS. You might ask yourself why someone would actually do that -
there's a great story behind it as well... When I'm the catcher and the play comes to the plate know it's going to hurt. So when we play softball, volleyball, soccer or ski you'll want to get out of my way...I was a great pairs hustle/disco dancer - the kind a crowd would surround - and would have any woman over my head in just three dances. I miss that so am learning (badly) the Swing dancing thing now, then Tango - care to fly?

Don't ever ask me if this makes you look fat.

If you seek a guy who's a one woman man who is faithful, capable of emotional, mental and physical affection and love you might want to consider getting to know me...

I cook! For 600 or just you. I make a mean Quiche, Crab Cakes and asst'd pastries among a multitude of cultural dishes. I experimented with and was a vegan for a year - if you prefer that that's fine - you'll just have to reintroduce me. You DON'T ever want to give me one of your recipes! When you make a dish I'll always be there to watch - and to lick the spoon, please!!! When I cook we'll dance - real slooow... visualize my thumbs lifting you up by the beltloops of your pants placing your unshoed feet atop mine - pulling you close as we sway to the rythym of the beating of our hearts... I crave "touch." Picnics are nice as well! Picnics are good for frisky too!!!

Be prepared to be dessert.

Did I mention I like travel and exploring new places?

Not a commitment-phobe. I have a long fuse but if you abuse me I'll leave. Just started working out again - was in decent shape before quitting 20 years ago. When I can I'm an extra in films and tv and can gain or lose 20/30 lbs in a month and grow a beard. What you see today will be different in 60 days. - and today I look like Ernest "Papa" Hemingway. You'll find me to be a perfect Yankee Gentleman: I can keep you warm on BOTH sides of the sheets. I don't Twitter, Tumblr, but have an unused Skype acct. I "wrastle." How about best two out of three falls? ;-) Game??? Lets spoon - although, cooler weather spooning is preferred...

Please, stop with the I don't do long distance - getting to really know someone over a period of time isn't such a bad thing... btw, this profile is the equivalent of two or three dates already and the questions part quite a bit more... If you're the right one I have no problem coming to you. Just know that I'm mobile and will relocate if you HIJACK my heart...

O - (neg) blood type which makes me a rare commodity. Yes!, O- is the universal donor so you and I are more than "just" compatible already.

You will find me to be complexly simple. And simply complex. I am uniquely different emotionally and MORALLY than any of the males you have or will experience/d who want to get into your soft girlish mound.
I don't suffer the fools errand gladly.
You should take note of that!

Loyalty means something to me. You will be aware that you are with the LAST BOY SCOUT. :-)

I write, upon request, orgasmic erotica... I don't own or have a firearm. But thanks to Boy Scout camp I obtained every marksmanship medal there was!

That said I'm worthy of a spot on your dance card - the one after the last note has reverberated, whose heart and hand you reach for and lead to your chambers.
Open your heart...
Pull me into your orbit and draw me into your realm...
Consider the possibilities...
It will be an enjoyable and exciting adventure.

********** What I'm looking for: **********

Natural and casual are nice after all we're not going to the PROM - unless we are. I'm a leg man so if you wear shorts that's what I'll be staring at. Of course Spring has sprung so bring 'em on. Ok, it's nearing the end of summer now - so shoot me!!! Inversely, I don't get stupid with, um, lets say, overly large have their own zip code female accoutrements - if you have them fine. I don't like you MORE the larger they are. Some guys do. Just know that I'm not one of them! I am attracted to you because of something else!!!
Besides you'll adore me because I'm into something else - like loyalty, devotion and adoration. Or perhaps because you enjoy being the recipient of my orgasmic back massages... And while we're on the topic of OMG - sex!!! - in full disclosure I know about the G-spot, A-spot, U spot, K spot, O spot, and P spot ( gee, that's sure a lot of spots are you sure you're not coming down with something??? ;-)) and OM - your pleasure NOT mine is paramount and really enough for you to know for now. Rather than be any more inappropriate here I'll just point you to this woman - Nicole Daedone. Google her and then be prepared to throw out your toys...

If you seek a man who is able to be there for you and your emotional needs and don't think that professing his adoration, commitment and purpose is a sign of weakness then you should start a dialogue with me. If you seek a partner, best friend and lover who will always have your back, provide you with ample opportunity to grow and help you weather and traverse your problems and fears I'm available...

If you drive - Use your f%#@*'n blinkers. Be my MUSE. Don't get bent out of shape if I use the wrong fork - I do know how to plate a table. I'm a functional guy - well with the cancer experience maybe not 100% functional....BTW last time I checked - Chicken: yeah, its a finger food! Boneless or not!!!

Don't be a CT (that's two letters not four.)

Have something you are passionate about and love animals preferably dogs. I tolerate house cats - but not feral cats. Know what's real and be the mature adult that you are but let your inner little girl out once in awhile. Let me play with your pigtails. And please, don't have your head buried in your iPhone when we're on a date... On second thought put your iPhone down - live life!!! Be prepared to be dessert. That's what I'm looking for in and from a woman.

There's a spot for you right here, Scully!!!

Thanks for your time and consideration.

What I’m doing with my life
Getting ready to lead the next American Revolution...

The United States is a republic - NOT a democracy... which is quickly morphing into something untenable...I actually know what's in the Declaration of Independence AND Constitution... And actually I'm seriously contemplating ex-pating in France - after all the new President Marcon personally invited me - you too...

Retired, photography, my dogs - which are gone, tour guide, travel plans - Indian (that's Native American) country and Arches Nat. Pk, the Pacific Coast, Europe, China, Ireland, Scotland, Japan and to see/capture wildlife in Africa and Arctic before its gone...
Wookin Pa Nub...its a fools errand!
My undergraduate majors were Political Science and Economics additionally I was a graduate teaching instructor in Sociology and assistant soccer coach at two colleges/universities. Graduate work consisted of Financial Development and Management of Non Profits. I worked in none of these fields: instead I worked in Food Service, Logistics, and Purchasing, Construction and Dentistry - but I wasn't a DDS... I know concepts and how things work - I get the big picture:
We (mankind) are not getting off of this rock. And another 3 billion in 30 years - totaling 9 billion is unsustainable. For those of you who took science in elementary school you'll appreciate the analogy - the auger auger in the Petrie dish- it's gone!!!
I love a good rant!!! :-)
I’m really good at
Seeing with a Parallax View...
You find that what you see isn't always what in fact REALITY is!!! Take a couple of steps to your right or left and look at what you were just viewing - it's different....

I have an insatiable interest in technique and the observation, exploration, and knowledge of the why, what, when, how of things and occurrences. And an almost complete photographic memory.

Chefing - that's not kvetching ;-) !!!,
hard core photographer - that's photographer girls NOT pornographer!
Oral affection ;-~
Shadow boxing with god:
touching my nose with my tongue...
Soccer Coach

Playing goalie in Lacrosse and Soccer - very competitively.
Goalies view everything differently -
from a different perspective...
I do....

When I was the catcher the runners knew it was going to hurt...
When I played 3rd base - I'd stand even with the pitcher - not the SS. To say I was challenging the hitters would be -uhmm, an understatement!!! That said there is a time and place for that competitive spirit...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Animal Farm, The Declaration of Independence, Farenheit 451, 1984, The Fine Print, TANSTAAFL, HEY READ THIS NEW BOOK "AVERAGE IS OVER"!!! It is!!! I really HATE Eckhardt Tolle!!! Gimme a break Oprah!!!

my camera gear,
ability to travel - passport
news/ability to access whats going on...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why you are the way you are...

Also, why this country isn't #1 anymore - well actually I know why this is - Google "Dunning-Kruger effect" and choose the wikipedia listing dated 12/04/14. And Plutocracy... Don't get me started...

Maybe arranged marriage isn't such a bad thing...

Walking across America - this would be an interesting and amazing adventure - as any travel trip with me will be...

Which country I can seek Political Asylum in...
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm RETIRED - EVERY night is Friday night...

The most private thing I’m willing to admit:

The realization of how much of an effect Katherine's pussy had on me. Relax girls, its a 23 year old cat - named Kool Aid!!! And that was in the summer of 2010.
I'm a softee - when I viewed Beauty and the Beast this week I teared up :-(...
It's easier for a civilized man to become a barbarian than it is for a barbarian to become a civilized man.
Bonus private item: sometimes I use all my digits/appendages to figure out math problems...;-)
