A little about me...
Retired just over a year ago and finding more time to enjoy life. I am a caring, loyal friend, easy to be with. Wow, sounds like a Girl Scout. Well, I was one if that counts. I have one son and five grandkids. I worked 33 years for the same company and worked shiftwork for a good part of that time. I have no regrets on retirement but now am searching for someone to enjoy some activities, make some new memories with and see where it goes. I enjoy movies either at home or out. Music: it's the oldies for me mostly-- old country, Motown, classic rock or some nice easy listening. Also love the Blues. A ride in the mountains on a beautiful day is nice. Possibly travel a bit and see places I have never been. Would love to go to Spain or Ireland or.....actually many places come to mind.. I'm not a big sports fan but can "WooHoo" with the best of them if you are. If I had a favorite, I guess it would be basketball since it is a fast paced game and can change quickly. I have a nephew that does round track racing and he is very good. I enjoy getting with the family on occasion to help root him on. I will try most anything at least once. Family time is always nice, either yours or mine.
About the one I'm looking for...
I am interested in a man that wants to have a good woman/companion in his life. Sounds dumb since I would assume thas why we are all here. Looking for that person that "we" can't wait to see again each time we part, one that is easy to talk with and enjoys just "being there". Truthfulness, for better or worse (since it always comes out) is a must. We all have things we may not be so proud of as well as those we are. Hopefully we have learned from both. Physical appearance isn't everything as long as you take care of yourself, but please post a photo or be willing to send one if you choose to contact me. How else will I know you when we meet? No smokers, please...it is a deal breaker for me. I do love "gadgets", but I don't feel it is the way to communicate or get to know one another. That's only possible by meeting and taking some time to see if there is a connection.
I'd just like to add...
I want you to smile and make me smile each time we meet. I'm not looking for someone to "keep me up" I can do that myself. Nor do I have any desire to support another. Just thought I would toss that in here. Maybe I've watched too many Dateline stories... :)

My Top Interests:
Nice to just get out and lose oneself in the story.
I enjoy the Blues and DooWop...my age I suppose. Some nice easy listening is good too. Music just soothes the soul.
I continue to be amazed at how quickly technology has advanced and love each new gadget.
