My self-summary
I am on a journey, no... a quest for a woman who will be my lover/friend/ confidant/trusted partner in life. It is a quest that I don't know where it will lead me, but which I hope will be interesting in the journey. How's that for vague!? lol .. My quest is to find a really solid and long lasting connection with an attractive, loving woman who I may revere in my heart and be a true trustworthy and devoted companion to in all things we do. A true 'team' player. 'Team' = me + you. .. In some ways I feel like Don Quixote.

I like to do outdoor activities all seasons... gardening, walking (I fast walk when alone), biking, golf, day trips, boating, going to fairs, auctions, garage sales and probably things you like to do. I am Ivy-university educated. I have a very easy-going & accomodating personality, not focused just on me, attentive to you, and can be spontaneous and playful.

I am a logical thinker, a problem-solver, a speculator, a prognosticator, a dreamer/visonary, a true Gemini !
I like to do things with others & especially a special someone, but also value some alone time.

I have had the privilege as a voluntary citizen activist for historic preservation, to have worked with both sides of the aisle to pass bills in Congress to expand one of our sacred National Parks. That included giving testimony before both houses of the Congress - a unique insight into the mechanics of our congressional, how many people do you know that have done that before? In some cases, I have passed more legislation as a citizen, than some of the lazy bums in our state legislature, who have never passed anything. Shame on them! LoL 😄😄
What I’m doing with my life
Looking for truly interesting women for , ST or LTR and lovers. Prefer my age, can't be too fussy...haha! :-D and maintaining my home's aging systems...(I'm thinking of a divorce! ...from this house..Hahaha!)
I’m really good at
Listening, being empathetic and good counsel...being loyal & monogamous. Empathetic & knowledgable & experienced. Smiling too! 😃 I like to be a happy camper even when the 'you know what' hits the fan! LOL 😄
I also have a serious side with determination to solve difficult problems that everyday life throws at us all.
I'm really good at fixing things too, and home improvements (although I still suck at finishing sheetrock joints! UGH!)
The first things people usually notice about me
I can be very outgoing immediately or a little reserved and THEN very outgoing . Most people find me a warm and friendly personality, and easy to talk to. I don't curse, (at people or animals anyway), am not rude (that I know of), self -deprecating humor, I employ gentlemanly manners, and take one day at a time (especially on matters of the heart). I am respectful...sometimes maybe to a fault...LoL! But don't mistake my respect for a lack of interest. :-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too much to list.. just about everything, you'll have to ask me. :-)
A couple faves: "The Horse Whisperer" & LUV the soundtrack;
"Let It Ride" A great comedy! "The Chronicles of Riddick", Carl Sagan's "Contact" (though I have come to the conclusion that we are alone in the universe) Music: Coldplay, John Williams, James Taylor, Hall & Oates, the late, but missed John Denver, some Madonna, some Lady Gaga...Matchbox Twenty (fav is "she's so mean"...Definitely all things SEAL... the list goes on.. you can see music is not a single genre for me. ;-). Recently saw 'Renaissance' and Bruce Hornsby in concert.
Six things I could never do without
Guess? oh and ......
St Louis Cardinals baseball
Cornell Big Red college hockey & Lacrosse......
& Breakfast! I Luvvvvvvvv Breakfast and have had some fascinating conversations over it. Lol
family and friends go without saying...
My CR-V & rototiller
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Is the big-bang theory really credible, or just a construct designed to explain the unexplainable origins of the universe, how things are put together, and the always ever present?... The irressitable "why" question, and ...women, of course.
I enjoy programs that deal with big questions, like the true origins of humans, why did nations form the way they did, etc.. it's fun to ponder and interesting when science or anthropology develops credible evidence.
I really luv the show "Quirky" on the Sundance Channel. Also, big fan of 'Shark Tank', 'Wheeler Dealers' ( British car flipping show), 'Million Dollar Listings', and similar reality shows where I can get an insight.....I rarely watch anything on the standard networks that are scripted or acted.
On a typical Friday night I am
Whatever comes up, no set routine. Lol
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
shhhh! I haven't rated any "awards" on this site from the women out there.... And, I'm not the 'charasmatic' type - so I won't be causing your eyes to glaze over in wonder & blind admiration. Lol
Isn't it "ok" to be just 'average' in this century?
I rarely watch network programs on ABC/NBC/CBS/FOX
You should message me if
You consider yourself (and think I may too) interesting, sexy, sensual, like conversation, do not live your life for politics, and like to do things, but are not 'manic' and can slow down to relax and smell the roses. (I have a very easy going nature) AND, you want to get together to chat IN PERSON (over a nice beverage) and not endlessly e-mail. ugh! :-)

I am VERY open to a long distance relationship, as I am now retired, distance within reason (1-2 hrs drive time), and as I am a caregiver for an elderly parent, some flexibility in planning weekends is appreciated. In future, I am potentially willing to move if the right one comes along... haha...21st century.. guys have to be willing to move for their women too! 😍
The two of us
