I appreciate simple elegance, nature, the company of a good woman and some of the finer things in life but I am not impressed with pretentiousness, conspicuous consumption or ostentatiousness.
I try to stay informed about the world around us. I believe in tolerance, staying fit and eating right and don’t mind getting my hands dirty working in the yard, repairing something broken around the house, or helping a friend out with a project.
I am a bit of a romantic, a nostalgic and a problem solver.
I am also an aficionado, endlessly curious and observant. I have opinions but remain open minded and ready to learn. I am a communicator and a listener. I love to be in motion and can relax with the best of them. I tend to follow my own path but feel comfortable in most any setting. I am loyal, trustworthy, honest (former boy scout),etc. and a gentleman. I want to be the best I can be and work at it in work, play and life in general. I am easy going and can get along with most anyone but prefer the company of loved ones, family and close friends. Quietly confident with a wonderful sense of humor.
I'm passionate about my work. I am equally busy raising two teens and instilling in them good values, a work ethic and prepare them for their futures all the while combating the cross currents of materialism and entitlement that seems so pervasive in our society. just doin' my part. LOL
problem solving, but please no rescues.
