A little about me...
I have been divorced for several years, have 5 grandchildren, and 2 adult children who work and live outside of South Dakota. I am ex-Navy, My love of flying and travel was fostered in the military, as was the beginning of my tattoo collection.
I enjoy spending a good amount of time outdoors exploring the Northern Black Hills and photographing my travels. I am a semi-professional photographer. I pay particular attention to wildlife, especially raptors (Bald and Golden Eagles, Ospreys, Owls, Hawks and Falcons). Am just getting into panning for gold.
About the one I'm looking for...
I am looking for a long-term relationship, without any drama or head games. I am looking for a partner with whom to share my life and family with. I am an "old-fashioned" man, and believe in opening doors, holding chairs and coats for women. I'm a true "child of the fifties". I enjoy vintage attire, ladies in knee length dresses with appropriate lingerie. There is far too little of that nowadays. I am spiritual but not religious.
I'd just like to add...
I enjoy woodworking and photography. I love winter as there are more scenic possibilities to photograph. My favorite food is Italian,, but can also be found in a good Mexican restaurant. I enjoy most genre's of music, especially Classic Rock and most Country. Have no interest in Rap or Heavy Metal.
LADIES PLEASE..... Numero Uno...NO SMOKERS (this includes the "social" smoker, or only out with friends or at a party), smoking is smoking. I want to see photos of YOU, not your goldfish, or your dogs/cats. If we get to that stage in a relationship, then I'd like to see them, but NOT here. No Photo/No Write Up = No Response. If you can't take the time to upload a couple photos of yourself and write a few paragraphs, then please don't expect a response. You can't possibly expect someone to message or flirt with you if you haven't written a thing about yourself. Remember...we males are visually oriented (or so I've been told). Also, another pet peeve of mine...PLEASE spell out complete words, and punctuation... U ladies kno who u r. .

My Top Interests:
Nature and Outdoors
I love the outdoors, and spend as much time as possible out of doors. I am a semi-professional photographer specialising in wildlife and raptors, particularly bald and golden eagles.
I was bitten by the travel bug while in the Navy, and still haven't been everywhere on my list.
Technology is an intriguing subject, and an ever increasing part of our lives.
