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. I share custody of the three youngest and they live with me 3-4 days a week. My ex-wife is still a part of my life, and I'm not looking for a new mom for them, or looking for anyone to help me raise them. I will not seriously date anyone that cannot get along with my ex wife, as she and the children are often at my home.
One of my 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.

If the kids are at their mother's I'm usually out exploring Washington.
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.
