A little about me...
I just retired from my second career - as a high school math teacher. Worked in the business world for a long time before that.
I have been divorced for 7 years now, so I would say that I am again "normal."
Really enjoy playing golf. Would like to find a lady who plays golf or understands a man with a passion for it.
I identify with my Irish heritage (my grandmother was born and raised in Ireland - Cashel, County Tipperary) and use my Irish wit a lot. Occasionally strangers don't view me as witty, so I am careful about that.. Thus my strange moniker - "Big Red Irish."
My grown children live far away and I do not see them too often.
LDS women and Flaming Liberal Democrats please leave me out. Also, if your Profile pictures were taken before you added 25 lbs., please leave me out. (I take care of myself and would like a woman who does the same.)
I am financially independent and do not plan to live off someone else. I am not afraid to take care of a woman who cares about me and whom I care about. I would like to meet a woman with whom I can spend a long time with.
About the one I'm looking for...
I would like to have a long-term relationship with a lady with class and style and one who can talk about a lot of subjects. If she can hit a little white dimpled ball that would be a big plus. I am pretty easy to please. Not afraid to communicate with those I care about.
I'd just like to add...
I like to go out to dinner and sometimes like to stay home and sometimes go out to the movies. Finding a little dive with good food and drink also works well.
I am working on a model train layout in my basement. I really enjoy that, plus one of my children works for a major railroad so that's another way I can stay tuned into the industry.
I exercise regularly and take care of myself. Enjoy reading in the evening with my little Shih Tzu next to me.

My Top Interests:
Love to play golf. Can play anytime and with any partner. Skill level in partner does not matter. Will only play golf on a day that ends in "y."
Crafts and Creating
Have a sizeable model railroad layout in my basement.. Still in its infancy. A friend told me a while ago that I will never really finish it. I will always be tinkering with it. He is probably right. Keeps me busy for hours and hours.
Lots of places I would like to visit. Among them are Australia and New Zealand, Spain, and Russia. Have been to Netherlands, Germany, England, Scotland and Ireland (twice).
