My self-summary
A self - confident person but not arrogant. Very reliable and loyal to my friends. Married for 30 years to the same woman and raised 4 kids together. Now, I'm enjoying life and am retired,divorced&recycled ;-) My life has been full of adventures and I'm not a conventional type guy...I have done many kinds of jobs and generally learn by hands on or even by a book. I hope to meet an active woman,younger than me and hope she can keep up. I think I'm a very faithful type person - I'm not decitfull enough to manage 2 intimate relationships at once. Slightly introverted, likes to read and very friendly. My friends say I'm pretty funny in social conversation...some of them say irreverent. Keirsey Guardian SJ if that is interesting.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently living in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I have a house, car and hobby business. Hobby because I'm not breaking even yet but still enjoying it.
I’m really good at
Teaching sport fencing. Fixing things and conversation on many topics. That doesn't mean I have an opinion about everything! I can make jewelry, carve ivory or wood, make knife or a sword. I can scuba, although I'd rather snorkel. I can also grow a pretty fair garden. Most of all I'm good at being "there". I can also play a guitar or a harmonica, mostly in the blues styles.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm in great shape for my age. Good smile. This is what I've been told.....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Quality writers, historic fiction, including the Three Musketeers, foreign films and some Hollywood productions. One of the authors I enjoy is Bartle Bull. Another is Paul Theroux. I like guitar music of many genre. Thai food, and almost any South American/Mexican foods. I sure enjoy the spicy Thai dishes-the hotter the better.
Six things I could never do without
1 cup of coffee in the morning is pretty important but I have gone without!
A little garden - although someday I might get too old for that.
Fencing epee and foil - until I keel over.
Smell of a flower
Friends & family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ask me after you know me a little better.
On a typical Friday night I am
Fencing until about 9 if I don't have anything else. If I am at home, I will play my guitar or watch a movie or read. I could be out for dinner with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You will have to ask about this but I have nothing to hide.
You should message me if
Even if you are just curious - I do not bite and won't ask for your e-mail until you feel comfortable. You have an urge to debate something. Curious about living in Thailand. You are a fencer and love it.
The two of us
