My self-summary
Brought up in Lynnwood while Chris Wedes and Bob Newman were on TV 11 times a week. (BTW .. if you are local, you'll know who they are). I've lived in Texas, Florida and Rhode Island .. but back in Seattle since 1992. 2 kids, 4 grandkids (all in Spokane). Had a good job that involved travel, but recently decided to let that go. Lots more time now to travel for fun, but want a traveling companion.
I live a simple life .. very few "things" but would like someone to share life with. Someone who has space in their lives. While I appreciate that we are all busy, if you are too busy to mesh lives with someone else, please move on. There will be compromise, sure. But I don't think it's a relationship if you only want to go out every week or two.
What I’m doing with my life
That's TBD. Retired as of August of 2017, very recently, and figuring things out. So .. I try to keep in shape cause life feels better. I have a sweet road bike.
I'm signed up for a fundraising bike ride for the MS Society and volunteering at a Ragnar trail ride.
My first purchase after my divorce (in 2007) was a piano. I like doing - but best to be doing with someone.
I like warmer places .. sandy beaches, a good book a cold drink and a smile. I donate blood/platelets a lot ... just found my 100 donation plaque at the Puget Sound Blood Center.
I've played at open mic nights .. I suspect I enjoyed it more than the listeners, but there you go.
I’m really good at
This feels weird to talk about things I'm good at. I learned long ago that I'm not good at promoting myself. Comes across conceited rather than confident. But ... I am a good teacher. I can take complex topics and connect them to things you know so that you understand a new idea.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read lots of books .. some just entertainment, others history. Just finished a book about falacies about what we think we know about the constitution.
Movies ... romance movies. Love Actually is on as I type this.
Six things I could never do without
I like being active. I have a couple of nice bikes .. my condo has a pool and a gym and Myrtle Edwards park and the path along the water is only a 2 minute run away.
Fresh oysters from Pike Place
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm going to do now that I've stopped working. How I will spend time, where I'll live, what volunteer opportunities do I choose?
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm in town, and after the party at work (almost every Friday), go home, get a bite, and walk to Hula Hula to try some Karaoke with Mickey Valentine.
You should message me if
you like snuggling and watching a positive movie
you like to be active .. hike, ride, swim .. whatever. Keeps us young
you have a kinky side
The two of us
