My self-summary
I don't think people are good at describing themselves - so I've taken quite a few tests and answered lots of questions. Then again - I not so sure about Mr. Robot’s analytical abilities. ;-]
I also would not rule out someone by a lot of measures. It is so hard to quantify likes and dislikes on a computer when since we all can tell if someone seems interesting during a trip to the grocery store.

I am easy to be around, intelligent, curious, sensual, and enjoy a good laugh, especially humor that makes me smile an hour later.
I've been involved in sports all my life.

I come from a family of teachers and coaches. I love learning new things and enjoy sharing them with others. I am trusting and honest. I am bad at spotting people with agendas but that is part of being trusting and I wouldn't want to change.

Being a very young 68 has changed my answers to questions - which I did about eight years ago to a more moderate attitude. I'm not going in and starting all over.

I do enjoy good comfortable company I guess we all do.
What I’m doing with my life
I've upgraded my stereo system to almost audiophile status and have been replacing lost and ordering a lot of new CD's. So I've been reading the paper - books and listening to a lot of Blues etc.. I do enjoy Netflix and good movies. There is not much to do out here in Halsey - pop. 680 {Grass seed capitol of the world]. One stoplight one Tavern and a market. I miss Eugene - but had to sell my house.
I’m really good at
Taking charge and getting people to pull together.
Injecting humor in tense situations.
Having a great time in bed. ;-]
Cinching a horse's saddle so I don't slide off the side doing hard cornering. [learned the hard way]

Movies: Michael Clayton, The Hunt for Red October, the Bourne series, Once upon a time in the West, China Town, African Queen, As good as it gets.

TV: Justified, The Daly show, Almost human, a lot of BBC series like the new Sherlock Holmes. I think I'm tired of cable news. They pander to the extreme just to keep us roiled up and the nut bags on screen for ratings.

Classical: Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, etc. done by a great Orchestra. I clean the house to the 1812 overture.- - - ka-boom
The six things I could never do without
Kayak paddle [only when I'm in a kayak of course], spare key under the bumper, Shelter from the rain, a good woman who wants to wake me up to play, AWD, being part of a community.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I've had two close calls lately Surgery and rolling a car. [not my fault]
So being grateful and appreciating family and friends is important.
The sun is warmer, the fish are jump'n and the Cotton's high.
On a typical Friday night I am
I enjoy wine tasting - the Chinese flying circus - having a Garden party amongst the Koi ponds and candle lit Lillies - Conversations with people in the arts especially writers as we have a liscence to tell the bigger lie the better.
Flyfishing the McKenzie in the dark. Except you need to keep the bats off the hook.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The above is a bit of blarney. I'm usually watching TV and feeding the fire with 3 dogs 1 cat 1 room-mate. All rescued, even me and my room-mate. The screen name comes from my Manx cat who used to jump out from behind spots and bite at my sock covered toes.
You should message me if
Someone who is sensual with a good heart.
If you could do the crossword puzzle if you wanted.
If you're young at heart.
If you'd like to find someone who you can be comfortable around and will have your back w/o saying a word.
If you are looking for someone to trust.
If you go over my tests and answers to questions and you are still interested. [My test answers were done a long time ago so they would be toned down a bit]
If you don't mind a guy an a fixed income. [Bad for me - Bad for you]. I won't be traveling to France for summer. ;-]
