A little about me...
Hi -- I enjoy a good laugh. My friends will describe me as having a strong desire to learn new things, as being compassionate, helpful to others, honest, intelligent, an avid reader, kind, well educated, and open minded. I enjoy visiting with family and good friends, travel in the northwestern US and Latin America, visiting historical sites especially colonial US, searching for gems like opals in Arizona, diamonds and jasper in Arkansas and other places, and amethyst in the southwestern US, reading good biographies, studying land forms (geomorphology) especially beaches, good movies and music, camping in western mountains, on beaches and National and State Parks, and card games. I prefer to do what others want to do at the time. I was a popular college professor for more than 30 years, a senior geologist with Gulf/Chevron for half a decade and with the US Military for five years, I was raised a Methodist and live by Christian standards. I retired from the University of Nevada in Las Vegas. I am a bit unconventional.
About the one I'm looking for...
An extravert with a sense of humor and who knows how to spell to correct my wonderful ideas ? ? Please no religious fanatics.
I'd just like to add...
I love dogs. I like US history and geography especially; I have seen most of the US outside Alaska, I like the western states specially the southwest, and northern Mexico. But US beaches tend to be crowded. Relatively isolated beaches can be found around the Gulf of California. I have an affinity for and am a fair weather friend of the Arkansas Razorbacks football team. I was born in Little Rock, Arkansas and grew up in Ouachita County, Arkansas, the sixth generation on my mother's side to reside in the County even if it does not contain a good beach but it has a river.
