A little about me...
Retired military; lieutenant colonel. Financially secure, but not wealthy. In addition to my military service, I have an academic background, having earned a doctorate in American literary studies. I still consider myself an active historian, with interests in the American frontier, conservation, military, 19th Century firearms, and film history.
About the one I'm looking for...
Looking for a long-term relationship with someone to share the good times.
I'd just like to add...
Hiking. Fine dining. Museums, readings, classic films. Love dogs.
SMOKING: As this matter sometimes elicits questions, and is more often an immediate "deal breaker" without question, I should address it. I smoke a pipe--never in anyone's home or vehicle, including my own. I smoke one good cigar--preferably, but not usually, Cuban--about every two years. I never smoke cigarettes. End of story.

My Top Interests:
Nature and Outdoors
I like hiking, camping, and cross-country skiing.
I am a trained film historian. I appreciate motion pictures as art and historical artifacts. I attend various types of conferences, sometimes as a participant, and enjoy exchanging ideas with colleagues.
I like to attend art shows and galleries, visit historical sites, and also explore (usually small) towns that incorporate artists' communities.
