My self-summary
OK, I'm a early 50's guy, carpenter/contractor, love to read, watch all types of movies, though the County Theatre in Doylestown is my favorite place to see films. Eating good food, though not necessarily in just nice restaurants, dives with great cooks are a lot more fun. Going out & drinking good coffee, talking about all sorts of stuff for hours at a time, listen to & dance to live music, paddle my kayak, and do a whole bunch of stuff. Let's see, what else? Looking to return to dancing, hiking & a bunch of other leg intensive activities, after getting both hips replaced in October of '06. Getting old can be quite interesting. Very interesting. I've been reducing the things I do for quite a few years due to the hips going bad, so I'm pretty excited about doing the stuff I haven't done for a couple years. Looking very forward to finding a creek & leaping from rock to rock again, bike riding, & who knows what else. I'm a lot of fun, both in my own opinion & from what I've been told. My three adjectives replace stuck, for, an answer, & I'm really still stuck for an answer. I love reading & learning, seeing theatre & being moved, & running amok both indoors & out. I have done a fair bit of long distance road trips & love it. LOVE IT. Either along or with company, but, I am here to find a partner who would travel with me. One of my most favorite experiences has been learning to Eskimo roll a kayak, when you roll it over & are stuck, hanging upside down underwater. A load of fun when I got present to the whole situation, & just hung out. Helps to really like water & being upside down too, I guess. I was surprised at how very comfortable I felt to be hanging there, upside down & underwater. Plenty more, but running out of patience w/typing this.

I am being, clever, and cute?
What I’m doing with my life
I am working as a carpenter & contractor & am trying with some success to be a businessman, though I have considerable room for improvement in the business end of my business. Learning more about the human condition, through The Tarot as an access point these days. Having reached mid age without kids, and having decided not to father any. Not sure about adopting, not ruled it out, nor am I seeking it. Open to discussion, threats &/or persuasion. You could have kids, you may not. Either situation is really fine, I love kids & get along great with them. I'm looking for someone to have a generally good time with. The bad times will come & go, but we can help each other through them, & enjoy the good & neither good nor bad times in between. Looking for a friend, lover, partner, traveling companion.
I’m really good at
Working with my hands & my mind. Deducing where a water leak is coming from & fixing it. Jiggery-pokery. Sharpening knives & chisels & plane irons. Cooking. Lighting & tending fires. MC'ing. Waltzing. Dancing of all sorts. Telling ridiculous lies & making them sound like a well known fact (I am so good at this it is almost a superpower). Helping nervous newcomers learn to Contra dance.Making Vonneguttian connections as I read & look around & go through life. Lots of other stuff too, some useful, much useless.
The first things people usually notice about me
Some times my smile, sometimes my laugh. My laugh is the thing I hear about most. If I'm spouting off about something then it could (and should)be my imperious attitude. My quite bald head.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Stuff by Salman Rushdie, Umberto Ecco, historical stuff, books about building & woodworking, John McPhee. Grew up reading Heinlein, Atlas Shrugged at about 14 was interesting in the ideas it opened up. Movies are hard, as is music. I love different movies for different reasons & it's hard to have just one or 2 fav's. Loved Dancer In The Dark, loved all the Monty Python & Cheech & Chong, The Harry Potter I saw was fun, Hitchcock is amusing though a bit didactic(not that that is bad), I love the stuff at the County Theatre in Doylestown. I listen to WPRB out of Princeton College & they play classical in the mornings, jazz midday, & whatever passes for rock according to the DJ in the afternoons & evenings, & I tend to love some of it, & like most of it. I like The Blow, Duke Ellington, The Mountain Goats, Blondie, Miles Davis, baroque brass (I was doing a job in Philadelphia & a lady walking her dog said that I liked the same music as she did, & said it was baroque brass. I was just listening to whatever was being played on morning classical on WPRB but when I thought about it I realized I really did like it), Saturday opera from "THE MET", The Worried Waltz on Sunday eveings is just a jewel box of aural delights, & a whole lotta other stuff. I get moved by Crowded House, & lots of other music.
Six things I could never do without
I've learned to live with & without lots of things. I tend to keep returning to Ice Cream, my computer, internet comics, The New Yorker, books for in between issues of TNY, & really good breakfast places that keep filling your coffee cup with decent if not great coffee.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
where the sunbeam ends & the starlight begins
On a typical Friday night I am
Heading to Stockton for an meeting, or maybe the meditation close by, then the diner, or falling asleep on the couch from a long work week, catching a movie, reading. Typically it varies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There always seems to be one or two songs on every Nield's record that brings a tear to my eye
You should message me if
You're looking for a partner in crime & have qualms about felonious behavior. If you stop at misdemeanors we just aren't a match.
Or- You want too. No, really, go ahead, just start typing.
Or- If you used a phrase containing the word chord in your profile & spelled it right.
The two of us
