My self-summary
One day I was walking and I found this big log
Then I rolled the log over
And underneath was a tiny little stick
And I was like, "That log had a child!"
What I’m doing with my life
I'm digging for fire...

Trying to be the best person I can possibly be.

Being grateful.

Being a dad to two wonderful kids, (18 & 14), who are with me 50% of the time, and an adult daughter, (26).

Cuttin' up steaks, roasts, and chops, cooking, housekeeping/maintenance, cat sitting, swimming, playing wallyball, remodeling/home improvement side jobs, playing music, gardening, and eating ice cream.

If you're looking for someone to go para-sailing with, in Costa Rica, I'm probably not your man, at least for the time being, as my schedule wouldn't allow it. But a weekend getaway would be a welcome break!
I’m really good at
Cooking, taking care of the people I love.

Playin' it by ear.
The first things people usually notice about me
My green teeth?

Seriously, I don't know, I'm a bit humble.

Radio - (Yes, I still listen to the radio.) During the week my kitchen is filled with tunes from Jazz 88.5, or, when my kids protest the"1940s" music, KQ, or KQQL, and on the weekends NPR/MPR programs - American Routes, Radiolab, The Moth, Car Talk, Bluegrass Saturday Morning

Books - Waging Heavy Peace (Neil Young), Life (Keith Richards), The Replacements - an Oral History, Don Quixote, The Odyssey, Wuthering Heights

Oh, and I like to do the NYT Crossword Puzzles.
Six things I could never do without
My loved ones
Stove/ grill
C-O-F-F-E-E, with lots of cream!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What to make for dinner, and do I need bacon?

My kids, when they're not with me.

Music, it's always going through my head.

Bettering myself.

How I'd really like to find love, and leave this on-line dating behind.
On a typical Friday night I am
With my kids, playin' rock-n-roll, or at my window, sad and lonely.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a lesbian trapped in a man's body, sans the anger. (I do, in fact, drive a Subaru.)

Sometimes I get the menstrual cramps, real hard.

I amuse myself.


I'm a little disappointed that there are many who don't comprehend this question, (the keyword is "willing"). "You'll have to get to know me..." seems to be the popular answer. Why would you pass on the chance to share something amusing, or interesting about yourself?
You should message me if
Fate should have it.

You're considerate, not narcissistic, nor materialistic, and would actually like to meet a nice, considerate man.

The power of Christ compels you! (Well, maybe not)

You're hungry.

You're going to be late.

You just met me, and this is crazy.

You're down to earth, and don't have an overblown sense of entitlement.

Like me, you are looking for someone with whom you share a passionate mutual attraction, combined with a fondness of each others company, with an easy rapport.
The two of us
