A little about me...
Well educated, traveled, & behaved successful rancher contemplating retirement. Survived a most adventursome, exciting life so far. Lost my right leg below the knee in Laos, 1960. Still do every thing except run the mile. Evacuated under fire (Laos, Vietnam, Pakistan). Received more than my share of blessings. Agri Missionary in India, 4 yrs. Healthy, virile, honest, and can make you laugh,(good tickler). Lots of chemistry, both inorg. & org. Professor environmental biology, conducted research on Univ. experiment sta. in MO, MN, Laos, India, Pakistan, Kenya, and Mexico. Certified agronomist/soil scientist. Dozens of peer reviewed publications in professional journals. Bought ND Badland ranch in 1992 (lifelong dream), and having time of my life raising beef cattle, longhorns, buffalo, horses, Angora goats, chickens, plus abundant wildlife. Hard hazardous work, low ROI, but healthy way to live, and finest neighbors alive. Recently sold ranch to CA gent who asked me to stay on as caretaker. Will till I find somewhere else I'd rather be.
About the one I'm looking for...
Intelligent, educated, healthy, sensuous beauty who keeps herself trim 'n fit, loves and understands nature, revels in outdoor/indoor activities, and eager to join me in search of a place we agree to set root. A ND Badland ranch is a tad rugged and remote for most damsels. Closest one chews and packs a pistol; her husband mysteriously disappeared. Not interested in her, liberal socialists, cynics, agnostics, or atheists. No offense intended.
I'd just like to add...
Besides being friendly, trustworthy, loyal, patient, courteous, and kind, I'm very modest. Used to be tall, dark, and handsome till horse and I rode over a cliff. Now I'm a tall, gray, beat up 'ol cowboy, but still a hero...to my children, grandchildren, horses, and dogs. Even buffalo like me. Can't speak for you but eager for your preview.
