A little about me...
I Enjoy walks on the beach, the smell of the forest after a rain, the smell of babies, listening to the birds and animals while in the woods. Working in my yard or handyman projects around the house are fun for me. I am passionate, affectionate and am a touchy feely type of person. I like to hold hands, snuggle and kiss. Going for walks, watching a movie , going to dinner, or just staying home cooking together and talking. I believe a relationship is built on respect for each other, communication, trust and friendship. I am a firm believer in treating others as I would want them to treat me. I have 2 grown /married daughters and 5 grandsons they are my world and I spend as much quality time as I can with each of them. Love, compassion, honesty, truth, respect and work habits are a direct result of what the person you are. Do you walk the talk or just talk?
I'm self employed which allows me the freedom to move my schedule around, for special events or just spending the day with someone special. Not into bar's, prefer movies, theater, live bands, slow dancing, fairs, festivals, New Orleans area restaurants, Old Architectural buildings, art, small towns, the beach, mountains, antiques, and sharing quality time with loved ones.
About the one I'm looking for...
I believe in treating others the way I want to be treated. I am affectionate and like to show it. I believe that communication and honesty are necessities in relationships and it takes 2 people to make or break a relationship. I'm am so tired of hearing it was always the other person's fault it did not work. Somewhere along the way one or each of us stopped trying. Relationships are a continuous effort of compromise. I attempt to be the best friend, parent and grandparent I can be. I look for the same in the special lady I seek.
Thanks for taking the time to read my profile and good luck in your search. May God Bless you and yours, M/
I'd just like to add...
It's unfair to limit 3 interests. # 1 I enjoy building things, drawing, handyman projects. My background is construction and enjoy working with my hands, now my job is administrative. I'm a die hard Saints and LSU fan and especially enjoy playground sports that my grandchildren participate in. I enjoy walks on the beach and would like to find an exercise partner. I enjoy the woods, mountains and beach vacations. #2. I enjoy architecture, historical sites and cities, small towns, art shops, paintings, drawing and sculptures. I enjoy all music except rap, mostly songs that touch the soul and enjoy good movie's, popcorn and you( except horror). I keep up with the news, read the paper and my political view varies on the issue( middle of the road). Technology is the future, just saying. #3 cooking and hosting answered above, however I enjoy shopping but enjoy buying more if in my budget. I'm a white wine person, I prefer it cold. #4. Career is important but not as much as above. Life is short , I have already worked my tail off and payed my dues. Education is the key to life your never to old to learn. It is emphasized to the younger generation. I would love to have a travel partner. If your interests are similar pleas contact me!

My Top Interests:
Family and Friends
As my pic's indicate spending time with my family and friends are important to me. I love my friends, however nothing is more important then my children and grandchildren. They are my life. I am blessed that they live close by and we are able to gather frequently. I believe a grandparents role is as important as the parents in raising a child. I love spending quality time with my boys.
Religion and Spirituality
Religion is an important part of my life. My faith has helped me through some difficult times in my life. I grew up and was confirmed Lutheran. Life threw me some curves and as a young man I strayed from God. As we get older we see things from a different perspective by maturing and through life's obstacles. Fortunately for me life's obstacles brought me back to God. I converted to Catholicism some years ago. While I do attend Mass, I do not believe all that man has interpreted into religion.
As a child of a large family, we'd gather each Sunday & holiday. The men & women would prepare and cook, the children would play.Our gatherings reinforced the importance of love & family.I learned how each put their heart into their task.They actually enjoyed the preping &the end result of their efforts. I began to cook & I felt that same passion. The preping, the aroma & the end result ='s reward. I luv to cook for others. What's better is cooking together, come join me in this act of love.
