My self-summary
I'm a slightly quirky 57 year old transplant from Illinois, (actually 32 with 25 years experience), who's an old fashioned romantic and loves music,(especially Classical, "bluesy" slow jazz, classic rock, & solo piano), movies, (except horror/slasher types), kissin & cuddlin, writing, political cartoons, WWII history, photography, long walks in the country on a cold day, long drives in the country on a hot day, time with my son, cooking and kitchen gadgets, DIY projects, Green Bay Packer football and St Louis Cardinal baseball, a great cup of coffee, traveling, fishing, boating (when I can), audio/video equipment, computers, a beautiful sunup or sundown, the mountains, the ocean, the northern woods, watching a good comic, the Christmas season, who realizes that to truly "make love" has little to do with sex, and I’m still dumb enough to believe in romance. I've been called a "contemporary renaissance" man by friends due to my varied and eclectic interests. I can sit and watch a documentary on the string theory of the universe, followed by a Bugs Bunny cartoon and enjoy each of them equally. I feel comfortable in just about any social situation and with any group of people. I’m inquisitive about everything and a learning junkie. When I have to be serious, I’m as serious as a heart attack, but when not, life is too short not to enjoy it and have fun. I still like to stomp a mud puddle while I walk in the rain. I'm very passionate about what I feel and believe, and just as passionate against what I don't. I tend to always give someone the benefit of the doubt until/unless they show me otherwise, I have a very vivid and creative imagination which I try to incorporate into everything I do. Finally, I'm a single parent of a 18yr old son of whom I'm very proud, and who constantly keeps me challenged,(I have the gray hairs to prove it). If there is anything else you want to know, (and if there is you must be really bored), just ask.

I am eclectic, creative, empathetic, and funny
What I’m doing with my life
Right now trying to encourage my son while he is off at school to be the best all around person he can be. I'm also trying to finish a book I've been working on for what seems like forever.
I’m really good at
Reading people, making people laugh, kissing, writing, teaching, photography, and an ok cook.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile, eyes, and my "Midwest accent".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love books on WWII, historical figures, true crime, self help/motivational, and political cartoons.

I love just about any type of movie except horror/slasher or "potty" humor types, (what I watch depends upon my mood).

I Love classical music, (and going to the symphony when I can), slow jazz, 70's rock, solo piano, and some other eclectic stuff such as coral, movie soundtracks, a little opera, and some "new age", (which is only called that because they don't know where else to classify it). I do not care for rap, hip hop, and "old" country. What I listen to depends upon my mood or the mood I trying to create.

When I do watch T.V., besides my favorite sports teams I watch House, NCIS, Dirty Jobs, Myth Busters, How it's Made, This Old House Hour, The Big Bang Theory, an occasional rerun of Two & a Half Men, reruns of The Untouchables and Combat, and The Weather Channel.

Food=American meat & potatoes, Chinese, Greek, Italian, some seafood, and my guilty pleasures; Extra Polar Ice gum, frozen Andies Mints, and either Rice Krispies, Coco Krispies, or Fruity Pebbles mixed in Vanilla Ice Cream.
Six things I could never do without
My God, my son, food, music, air conditioning, and toilet paper
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A lot of things, my mind tends to run 100 miles an hour...
On a typical Friday night I am
Wondering where the week went.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sometimes feel like a pair of brown shoes in a tuxedo world.
You should message me if
You love the same music, movies, and other things I do, can have intelligent conversations especially on current events, are passionate, (both in and out of bed), are loyal, non critical, like to be a kid at times, and a pretty good kisser.
The two of us
