My self-summary
Retired from the Army. I am not the jealous type and am not interested in dating anyone who is.

Stopped short of finishing Master's Degree in Psychology; discovered I like being retired more than I like solving other peoples problems.

During a break in my military service, I was a professional student for years. I studied Art (painting, photography, print making, web design), Computer Information Systems, and Psychology at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Received degrees in Paralegal Technology, Computer Information Systems, and Police Science from Calhoun Community College. Attended JF Drake Tech's LPN Program in the early 1990s.

I enjoy the outdoors, reading and painting; portraits not houses; and exploring museums and parks.

I have a total of five children, Two in college and three under 15. The three youngest live with me.

One of my adult children is transgendered and lives in Seattle. If you can't accept the fact that my son/daughter lives an alternative lifestyle, there is no point in contacting me.
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying myself and spending time doing the things that I've always wanted to do. Currently, I'm repairing the fences on my mini farm, chasing alpacas, starting to paint again.
I’m really good at
Almost anything I decide to do; though advanced math and chemistry gives me fits. I like working with my hands, and built my first house by myself; I maintain a LAN at home for the kids; I enjoy working on cars and my mini-farm and I generally win more than I lose at the casino.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm intelligent and funny. I take pretty good care of myself, I'm six feet tall, and weigh 215 pounds (size 34 waist XXL shirts). Have a well developed sense of humor.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where do I want to explore next; are there any 50 year old women that actually like the outdoors (most seem to just say they do), why are almost all of my friends considerably younger than me, what should I cook tonight, how to squeeze more MPG out of a turbo diesel, building a greenhouse, how to keep the goats inside the fences; why no one on Ok Cupid, within 10 miles of me, has listed the Ramones under music, and which country am I going to relocate to when the kids are grown.
On a typical Friday night I am
Other than the fact that the kids have school most mornings; there's no real difference between my Friday's and any other day. Usually, I'm cooking, watching movies at home, wondering why the hell the kids can't clean up after themselves, and planning our weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have an adult Transgendered child (MTF); I probably curse too much, genuinely despise three of my neighbors, and I occasionally smoke when I drink.

This is the first time I've had a tan since I was a child.

I'm up for just about any type of relationship as long as you are honest about what you want.
You should message me if
If you are interesting, enjoy life, are extremely tired of limp wristed girly-men.
The two of us
