A little about me...
I am a graduate Civil Engineer from UCONN - 1964 --drafted in 1966 went to OCS- went to Viet Nam which I consider the best one year in my life – not wounded -- golf has been a passion for my life --I WAS GOOD – won the biggest tourney in Northern California twice--I wanted to raise children so I married a gal in 1973 to who had two children--lasted 10.5 years–she spent all my monies and then some-- married in 1988 to a wonderful lady who I found out later thought that her daughter screaming at her ‘Mom – tell me what to do’ was very PROPER and then bringing up that daughter’s girl – in the same manner–no training in responsibility and reason–to be totally dependent upon her grandmother without acknowledging her responsibility for ANY of her actions
I have traveled to over 40 countries and have seen a lot --- have driven the coast line from Brownsville, TX to Cape Cod---have had a good life--- am not lacking for money – have a nice 2K SF place here at 7000 feet in elevation --- lots of snow, deer, elk, turkeys, no water etc --- am about 5-8 and weight too much –about 180 and am trying to get to about 170 or so
About the one I'm looking for...
My hope is to find a person who likes to do a little traveling --- there are still some places I would like to go to see---my father and mother were married for 61 years before my father died - my mother lived one more year-- they loved each other VERY much -- I would hope to get into a relationship like that and I realize it cannot go for 61 years---having had a great sex life for the first 12 years of my last marriage was wonderful but then having to survive the last 8 years of marriage with a totally bad sex life was hard to take---I really miss the close physical contact with a woman--lying in bed and holding a woman was/is a great feeling --I went through 8 years of cold/no sex and I am not going to be in a relationship with a ‘cold woman’
I feel a partner should have her space to do her thing and well as I should --- I am NOT hurting in the financial end !!--I have tended to find strong women as my mother was ---they are able to discuss things with me and are not just a person who says ‘whatever you want we will do’ --they have their desires and I respect them (well not my last wife’s belief on bringing up children) and they can see my beliefs
I'd just like to add...
Have spent the last 33 years of my professional life in Marine Sales & Engineering---I am and was GOD in the Aluminum sheet piling industry -- was a part owner of a fabrication firm in Sanford FL since 1987 and we manufactured aluminum products for the Marine Industry---floating docks, fixed piers, gangways and of course aluminum piling --sheet piling is used to retain earth from falling into the water, river, lake or ocean---In the process of being a part owner and working hard I paid little attention to my health and the consequence of that is I developed high blood pressure which is under control now
In 2005 we sold the company to a competitor and got a real good number for the firm --- so it was worth selling--So I retired and played golf almost every day--my 5 year non- compete clause was up on November 16, 2010--I almost would like to get back in but I enjoy being retarded !!!!!;
One of my specialties was / is computers ---so I learned how to make computers and have probably made over 100 of them and they still drive me nucking futs---but the computer programs I wrote for the company made us a lot of money each year
