A little about me...
I am retired from the Federal Government for 3 years. I lived in Arlington,VA for most of my life, but recently moved to Winchester, VA and it was the best decision I have ever made! Unfortunately my wife of 25 years passed away last year and I do miss her, but she would have wanted me to get on with my life and I dearly want a special lady in my life. I am definitely interested in a long term relationship, but would be happy just making a new friend! I am a music lover(Petula Clark is my favorite entertainer) and have a huge collection of CDs (pop, classic rock n roll, big band, nostalgia, movie soundtracks,classical andJAZZ!) I am conservative, enjoy TCM Movie and Fox News
TV Channels as well as late night talk radio, especially "Coast to Coast" which deals with ufos,ETs, time travel. Although I enjoy people and have friends, I do consider myself a loner at times. Surprisingly, I did take on the job as being secretary/treasurer of our local HOA. I was a bit reluctant at first but there was no one in our housing complex that wanted the job, so I agreed to serve. After one year I now think I would be unhappy to give it up! I have met all of my neighbors and can honestly say I like them all! I am so lucky!
About the one I'm looking for...
I am looking for a moderate to conservative woman, age can range from 50 - 65. If you are religious, that's another point in your favor! Of course a nice personality and a good cook is always great as well! If you play the piano or another musical instrument that would be icing on the cake, but it's not a deal breaker. Basically I am looking for a kind,nice and very feminine woman who would enjoy a great partner in life!
I'd just like to add...
Since I am retired, I do hope perhaps that my potential companion and I will do an occasional ship cruise! And since my late wife's family reside in Britain, and my daughter and grand kids live in New Zealand and my 2 sisters live in San Francisco that some domestic & international flights would be in order for the near future! Basically I want to enjoy life and find new interests and activities! I hope the person I meet would feel the same!

My Top Interests:
Music is universal and there is so much variety, one would never get bored with it! Also amazing is that music is great for any occasion or mood! I do play a Casio Horn which resembles a small saxophone and can mimic the sound of a trumpet, clarinet, sax, flute,etc. Unlike most wind instruments it plays in the same key as a piano! I do play by ear and I do have a piano in my house that is just begging to be played! I am sure that with the right partner we could make beautiful music together!
A nice restaurant usually provides great food and encourages pleasant conversation and perhaps romantic feelings! Fortunately Winchester is loaded with fine restaurants! Just my good fortune that I live so close to a nice shopping center and some fine restaurants!
News and Politics
I like to debate politics and at the same time make fun of it, although a " shutdown" is anything but funny. On the other hand I do not make a point of discussing politics if someone is not interested! I try to be a "southern gentleman"!
