A little about me...
Not a mean bone in my body, but like to tease - lovingly. Have done a lot of work around the house, but let someone else do the plumbing & electrical now. Enjoy shooting sports, and was a competitor, but am now Old & Ugly, out of condition, out of practice, out of danged near everything, and not competitive anymore. Have several degrees, and have done Mental Health work (for pay, not volunteer), was an amateur radio operator at one time, and taught electronics 'way back when. Retired from Management Consulting in '02, and am fully retired now. And, be advised, I have shaved off the Van Dyke - that picture is something over a year old, and the beard was too much trouble shaving around. Not looking for a Nurse with a Purse, not looking for a roll in the hay. Committable.
About the one I'm looking for...
Attractive, cheerful, intelligent, educated, genuine, open, able to travel, and independent. Light (or non-) drinker, non-smoker, and committable.
I'd just like to add...
I think anyone is a fool if they commit to the first, or second, whatever, person they date. Maybe the first, but only after several more. I'm not talking about playing the field FOREVER, but thinking my situation is similar to most on this forum, I really haven't had a ton of experience interacting on a personal and intimate level with other women, and really need to check myself out.

My Top Interests:
I enjoyed playing in my younger days, but just watch now. I do some target shooting, but am not competitive anymore, and that's OK.
Family and Friends
We had three wonderful kids, but the two oldest have passed on, as has my wife, which leaves me with one son and three granddaughters, plus the home folks and childhood and professional chums.
I played big-band stuff 'way back in college days, and that is still my favorite.
