A little about me...
Look for the twinkle in my eyes; and when I cock my head to the side, I'm about to tell a story.
That's me: I'm a story teller -- with 5 books to prove it. And I'm willing to laugh at myself.
I'm old-fashioned, too. I like opening doors for ladies, and prefer to walk on the traffic side.
I'm also new to Oregon -- arrived in October, 2014, after selling my Montana home. I now live in a 34-foot travel trailer. And I need someone to be my Oregon guide.
I think I might like to go south for the winter. Do you want to go with? Spontaneity is great!
I am a retired newspaper editor and former coast-to-coast truck driver. I've lived in 6 states -- now 7 -- and traveled all over North America.
I only left the North America continent one time -- for my trip of a lifetime -- a photo safari in Kenya, Africa.
About the one I'm looking for...
You gotta read, and know what's happening in this world. Writers require readers, you know -- because we want good conversation.
And I expect a smile with that morning cup -- frowns just won't do it. Laughter is the best medicine, and the best prescription for a long and joyful life. So let's see who can outlast the other.
I seek my LAST and BEST relationship, but only after becoming best friends.
Are you a toucher? You gotta be a toucher! I want plenty of caressing -- because I expect to give plenty, matched with intimacy.
So if you are the right lady, I will provide you with my time, my smile, my honesty, my love, and choosing to make you the priority in my life.
And if you can provide a positive attitude to go with the laughter, you're my type.
I'd just like to add...
I WON'T RESPOND IF YOU DON'T POST A PHOTO OF YOURSELF.
NOR WILL I RESPOND TO ANYONE MORE THAN 100 MILES AWAY.
I remain active; and the only medication I take is a glass of orange juice nearly every morning.
I enjoy kayaking, hiking, swimming, bowling, photography and travel.
I even like to cook occasionally.
