Travel in all forms appeals to my adventuresome side but forget up or down a steep narrow trail on a mule...I am over the thrill seeking stage of my life...at least that kind of thrill. I like new things and new people.
I always have a book with me and enjoy reading to learn, to entertain myself, and to pass the time pleasantly while I am waiting for things to happen, like getting the oil in my car changed. I like learning new things of all sorts. I respect competence .
I am Affectionate, Faithful, and Fun(ny) but I am not a beauty. So if you are looking for arm candy, stop reading right now. However, if you are seeking heart candy and all the joy that it brings, please continue.
I am recently retired from an executive management position in government service and I am still getting used to the retired lifestyle. Since retiring I have done quite a bit of traveling in both the USA and Europe and I plan to do some more.
