A little about me...
A 'farm boy' from Midwestern MN, earned my college degree at the U of M (back in the days of winning sports teams) lived and worked in Wisconsin a few years after returning from Vietnam in 1969 and then returned to MN for most of my working career in Business Management and Consulting.
Now 'officially retired' I have taken on some special projects for a construction company here in Sioux Falls, as I needed to slide into this retirement mode gradually. Now that the fall season is upon this northern area, I am planning some extended road trips traveling the southern areas in which I hope to meet new people and gain friends, and evaluate for becoming a 'snow-bird' and/or relocate.
I am a registered Independent politically, with a true Conservative ideology (especially on fiscal issues), thus I am very concerned about the decades long trend of increased spending habits of our 'elected clan' in Washington D.C.(not all inclusive) and do have some firm convictions on what must be the corrections. I will NOT become a political activist, as both major parties need major change and cleansing of the Big Money & Special Interest group influence. I do like social discussions on the topics of the day, but try to keep it fairly low key.
About the one I'm looking for...
It is very difficult to establish this criteria, as we are all individually somewhat unique. And, if we have an open mind, many of these 'unique attributes' can become very interesting and growing opportunities for each other. So, with my 'little about me' above & I'd just like to add below, if there is interest, we can explore the potential future growth of harmony in life. I now am not working, thus have time for casual messaging and/or chat sessions. Please feel comfortable requesting communications, as we know the accepted edicate has changed since our youth/early adult days. Currently, I am considering (planning) some extended road trips that lead to southern climates (getting out of our winter months). Likely will include NH and SC during Nov. - Dec, to take in some historical spots and a personal observation/report of the Primary activities. I no longer believe much of the MSM news reports. If some you ladies on this site are actively informed of the current politics, but not an activist, I would appreciate some chats, that 'may' lead to in person discussions at some political primary events.
I'd just like to add...
I like golfing (not very low scores these days), really enjoy dancing (old time & light rock) and would like to learn some Ballroom steps (Cha Cha, Rhumba, Foxtrot and Swing. I started lessons twice, but my schedule did not allow for attending all the lesson dates. At this stage in life of having a very flexible schedule, I am looking forward to trying many new experiences, and trying these with a nice lady partner would be great. I DO NOT smoke, and expect same and drink Very Little alcohol, only social occations and with friends. NO bar scene for me, and I do not include nice Bar & Grills in that catagory.
