My self-summary
With all of this talk about what's in or outside of a box I have to wonder why we have a box at all. I've spent my life trying to do what's right both with my family & life in general.
I lost my wife to cancer back in 2005. She was my buddy, my lover, & my pal. Trust me when I say that I know whats important in life & its not stuff. I'm not broken but I'm looking for what puts life back into a man.
I spent my 20 in the Air Force. Most of it was in B-52s. I've been around the world & in some cases wish I hadn't but I was there & history took place. I've done about all of the traveling I care to do thank you very much.
Right now I have my kids & grand kids. Their healthy & growing so fast it sometimes makes me feel old. But I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do when I grow up.
This is what I am.

I am sincere, willing, and emotionally stable
What I’m doing with my life
I'm teaching kids & complaining about the usual teaching stuff. Who invented video games & shopping malls? If we need to know about computers why can't we build one?
Fortunately or not, teaching is not a job. Its a way of life. Often times I go to bed thinking about the next day or what I'm going to do with a particular kid. Most times what they want isn't what they need.
I’m really good at
Narrowing problems down to basics. Life is simple. We're the ones who screw it up. Waking up the next day is a good start. Its a good time to begin a life change. Then again. Maybe waking up was good enough?
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm normally quiet. I look to see what I'm getting into before I have to pull my foot out of my mouth. There's a time to talk & a time to listen. Knowing which is which is a knack.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books are about history or science.
Movies are "Second Hand Lions", "Gran Torino", "Come Dance at my Wedding", "Apocalypto" I have a couple thousand more.
Music: Bee Gees, Chicago, Simon & Garfunkel, & lately, Susan Boyle.
Food: Sea Food or a primo steak.
Six things I could never do without
Grand kids
My students
My dog
My home
My sense of self
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Mortality & what it means. What I mean is what's life with no one to share it with. Going to bed is just going to bed. Waking up is just waking up. Getting home after a hard day is just getting home after a hard day. Where's the life?
On a typical Friday night I am
With nothing better to do I'm either working late or thinking about
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I tend to say what's on my mind. Sometimes thats a good thing and sometimes it gets me in trouble. The good thing normally outweighs the trouble thing.
The biggest problem I have with dating is hurting other peoples feelings. Guys are used to rejection. On the other hand, we're happy when girls show up.
You should message me if
Like most people I'm not sure what I'm looking for but I'll know it if I see it. It can be a dark world out there. Depending on who I'm with I can be the candle in the dark. At the same time I can be the cool breeze. Let's see which way the wind blows.
The two of us
