I would like to have a partner to share moments such as enjoying the view in my garden with a glass of wine and sharing small confidences, or enjoying a stroll on the beach holding hands, a fun game of golf or fishing for trout. Recently my dog of many years also passed on and eventually would like to get another pup. I am fond of all kinds of music but am partial to the oldies and do like country. I'm a very honest and upfront person, to a fault sometimes, some say a bit abrupt. My family is small but they mean everything to me. I am locally involved with bridge, local garden club and also volunteer at our local theater.
