A little about me...
I am a semi-retired, separated, professional investigator with a zest for life in general. I adore my son, his wife, and their three children. Although I'm not a superb performer at skiing, sailing, skating or biking, I enjoy all of these sports just for the fun of them. I am a master gardener and food preserver. I love growing and preserving my own food and sharing it with others. I am well-educated and own a modest home but I don't care about your level of formal education or your possessions. I am self-reliant, but I would rather share life than live it alone. I am honest, straightforward, dependable, and have a somewhat spontaneous nature but with both feet on the ground. I don't lie, cheat, steal, or mislead and I don't want to be involved with someone who does. I am a supportive, nurturing person who does not stay where I am not welcome. I treasure open communication and resolving issues as quickly as possible. I am willing to admit when I am wrong, to sincerely apologize and to make amends where ever possible.
About the one I'm looking for...
I want a relationship with a confident, independent and trustworthy person who also knows how to share himself with me. I do not care what you own, how much money you have, or how educated you are. I want to be with someone who values friendship, truth, and tenderness in a relationship. I am looking for someone who is not an extreme narcissist who wants to share life. I do not lie, cheat, steal, or sneak and I want a relationship with someone who feels that those characteristics are important and that they are a two-way street.
I believe that honesty and open communications are central to a healthy relationship. It does not work for one party to be open and honest and the other to lie, cheat, sneak, or steal. In short, I want a best friend to go through the rest of life with.
Finally got a few photos online. I'm not terribly photogenic, so I'm seldom photographed. Mmmm, perhaps it's just that I'm getting older and not just less photogenic. Oh, darn, there's that "O" word !"

My Top Interests:
Family and Friends
I adore my grandchildren and seeing life through their eyes. I am enriched by the time I spend with family and friends.
Nature and Outdoors
Skiing, gardening, sailing and other water sports, and biking make me feel sensuous and one with nature. I love the feel and scent of fertile earth as I cooperate with nature to feed body and soul.
Ah, to travel. I've been woefully unable to travel as I'd like due to a number of circumstances beyond my control. But it is my dream. Perhaps the Peace Corps?
