A little about me...
I'm enjoying a pre-retirement semi-retirement, doing some jobs just for the pleasure and interest, not for the money, until it's time to completely retire. I've just landed a summer job at Yellowstone Park, so I'll be there from mid-May until Labor Day. My home is suburban Philadelphia. I enjoy learning about new people, conversation, eating out on a small scale, going to the movies, and doing things outside, walking, going to the beach, paddling, driving to see new places, exploring. I'm easy to amuse, actually.
About the one I'm looking for...
I'm very partial to principled people, thoughtful people, and people who feel responsible for the shape their lives take. I'd like to find someone who can be a good friend, and someone I can learn some things from. I'm also very verbal, and relate best to people who are also very verbal. I'm not saying I talk all the time or am looking for someone who talks a lot--I just love words and sophisticated communication.
I'd just like to add...
Liking to bicycle, hike not too strenuously, and/or play bridge would be great pluses but are not necessary. Just good ways to get to know each other.

My Top Interests:
Nature and Outdoors
I'm happiest when I can spend some times outdoors, hiking, paddling, riding my bike, even walking around the neighborhood or sitting on the porch. Gardening is good too.
I love games. Bridge is my favorite, but haven't found a bridge group lately. Scrabble, Querkle (it's new and fun), anything you have to think out a little bit.
Movie buff all my life, but really don't like violent stuff. Character driven is best for me.
