My self-summary
What a difference a year makes. Been out of the loop for a while. Pneumonia almost made me compost for the daises but hey Im not ready to go yet! Recovered from surgery, back on my feet and ready, I just need you. I have a vintage camper with many unfulfilled destinations, hey can you be my co-pilot?
What I’m doing with my life
Semi-retired …. Working a job that takes me offroad to remote places all over Oregon behind all the locked gates you cant travel through. Looking for natures treasures - open skys still azure blue, stars, the wind blowing gently in your face, rainbows, rainbow trout, waterfalls, clean clear lakes, mushrooms, gold, rocks, treasures, bobcats, spotted owls, a watercress salad, old buildings and ….. Adventure
I’m really good at
I always do better with a project or two cuz I’m the ultimate handyman and love to work around the house. Would rather be working with my hands tinkering than sitting on them. I am good at annoying people and I make an awesome orzo salad.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books read lately;
A Handmaid's Tale
Oryx and Crake
Samuel Clements works
I keep these handy - Back to Eden and the Boy Scout Survival Handbook and refer to them often.

Love movies but they are always better with a companion. Samples are Crash, UP, Unforgiven, Fantasia, No Country for Old Men

T.V. includes Survivor (yea I know it's worn out and dated but I just can’t stop!) Chopped, Independent Lens and anything on the lifetime channel?? No really?

If I could I’d listen to Progressive Talk Radio I would but all I can get here is right wing rhetoric. Thank goodness for the clarity and sanity of NPR and OPB. Others that speak truth are Allen Combs - RIP, Clyde Lewis, Karell, and Coast to Coast

I listen to a wide range of music types but here’s a sample of what I have in the hard drive;
Tenacious D
Amy Winehouse
Diana Krall
Pink Floyd
Tom Petty
O Brother Where Art Thou?
Vassar Clements/Garcia Old and in. the Way
Taj Mahal
Jerry Jeff Walker
Nat King Cole Christmas
Patsy Cline
Robert Johnson
Etta James

Foods that come to minds are Indian food, a shrimp louie, jambalaya, anything homemade hopefully fresh from the garden, grilling and bbq, oysters on the half shell, wild mushrooms, salmon and yogurt dill sauce, asparagus yum!
Six things I could never do without
This was really difficult so I cheated and grouped some things together.

#1. This was the easy one - My 2 year old granddaughter

#2. Nature and animals - I see into the eyes of dogs to their heart and soul and communicate often. I like animals more than most people and goats and ducks are good friends of mine.

#3. Family and friends and great times together.

#4. Sun, water, air, life, energy and a warm dry comfortable place to sleep.

#5. Intimacy, touch, communication, love.

#6. And Peace please!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why did Kamikaze pilots wear crash helmets?

The Trump Administration. Whats going on with the Donald? Is he an android puppet? Part of the collective i think. Where is our country headed?

That big red and orange UFO i saw over Albany.

The wolf I saw outside of Lyons on a jobsite.

Prince Harry - Love that guy - If I could only have that life.

The guy that flips the switch to turn on all the streetlights. Where is the control room?



This crazy world
On a typical Friday night I am
Hoping you like a movie once in awhile. I always stay for the credits and unfortunately theatre popcorn is awesome!
Hole-in-the-wall mom and pop restaurants are preferred to chains and fast food is poison! If I could only stop eating burgers… almost there except for the ones at home off the grill.
A concert, a play, museums, art, second hand stores, eclectic little shops along the way, a warm night and a park bench feeding the ducks and geese, a pergola, you and a slow soft kiss!
You should message me if
You just want to say hello or maybe you have something you would like to ask that I haven’t covered here. Please tell me what passions you have or ones you might want to develop. Let's get together for coffee or lunch and maybe take a little walk and talk to see where it goes.
The two of us
