A little about me...
I am an outdoors, country type of man who appreciates many of the finer things of life. I am into traveling, RVing, music appreciation, woodcrafts, ranch and pet animals, home electronics, computers and good health practices. I am a retired Electronic Engineer from Southern California and have lived on a one-acre rancho in north Lemmon Valley (Reno), Nevada for the last 15 years. I do volunteer work for the Senior Companion Program.
My political beliefs are compassionate conservative leaning slightly towards the liberal. Religious beliefs are quite spiritual, non-denominational. I believe in, and practice, the golden rule, the silver rule and a live and let live philosophy of life. I shy away from people that tend to be judgmental, confrontational, mean-spirited, and controlling.
About the one I'm looking for...
Is affectionate and not afraid to speak her mind. Is looking for a long term committed relationship and has the desire and time available for the right man. Likes the outdoors, traveling, RVing, dining out, live entertainment and intellectual endeavors. I am looking for one special retired woman who has a decent amount of free time, wants to enjoy life and who's life is not controlled by adult children or grandchildren. Preferably she is a widow who had a good marriage as did I.
I'd just like to add...
I have been a widower for 5 years and really enjoyed being married for 21 years. I feel that I am through the grieving stage, would like to explore life again and would like to have a serious one-on-one relationship with one special woman. I am not interested in dating recent divorcees, widows whose previous marriage was less than satisfactory or angry women. Also, I am not interested in women who present false, misleading or inconsistent information.

My Top Interests:
Crafts and Creating
Craft woodworking and electronics. I enjoy creating my own patterns and the use of woodworking power tools. Electronics (engineering) started as a hobby then became a 33 year carrer and is now back to being a hobby which I enjoy as my most creative activity.
Nature and Outdoors
I enjoy RVing, hiking, walking, bicycling, and fishing because of the beauty of nature and the stress relief it provides.
I have always enjoyed music since having 5 years of piano lessons as a child. I specially enjoy live concerts.
