Hello. I want to meet a lady who will introduce me to new things, laugh with me at the whimsical, and lose all sense of time in each other’s conversation. It’s ok to laugh at me too, as I can be a left hand fastener in a right hand world.
I am a retired peace officer; the 30 year journey was a blast. There was the comedy, coffee and comradery for company, but I much prefer a movie for excitement now.
I have been an outdoorsman my entire adult life, and have been hunting, rafting and fishing throughout the West and Alaska. To me, the 4x4 truck is the perfect vehicle for adventure beyond navigating parking lots. A fine recap of a good time out is traversing to some high hill above the lights, and watching the sun set and planets appear in the sky, swapping stories and laughing, or just reflecting on how tiny we are in the universe, and how lucky I am to be in the place I am with the person I am with.
I hike a lot, and try to do at least one 12-15 mile hike a week with a few other smaller jaunts mixed in for good measure. I am attempting to become at least a mediocre bicycle rider, and have provided comic relief to my neighbors and friends as I navigate the streets of my community on my bike.
Cutting up in the kitchen together is fun, and I am looking for and appreciate new perspectives nourished there. Now where did I stash the measuring spoons? All by myself, I have made some fabulous dishes….. and some great flops. Like in life, I adjust and try again next time, as I am a hopeless optimist. I would like to discover the delicious recesses of your mind, leaving room for desert.
I can be persuaded to enter and browse any used book store, digging through the stacks to find some treasure to adopt and bring home. Be warned, I have allowed my addiction to get a little out of hand! Being a little shy, it might take a sunny afternoon picnic to get me to read out loud to you. Let’s try poetry first?
I cherish honesty. I am a man of faith. I open doors for all ladies, address my elders with respect and can be taught to leave the toilet seat down given positive reinforcement. I try to be a good steward of what is provided and nourish relationships. I clean up with soap and hot water and am comfortable in jeans as well as a suit.
Please consider an invitation into my life. Our book has many exciting chapters, and only the forward has been written and published.
