I'll try to keep this simple and just state the facts. I am a old school bad boy gone good. Trying to have good morals and values these day's. I've been taking care of my 77yr old deaf, handicap, diabetic, mother, who is going blind sense 1998. I promised my father on his death bed I would and that's what I do, I keep my promises out of love and respect!!! I'm also clean and sober over 6yrs now, and help Alcoholics and Addicts when I can. I'm not into games or drama, life is to short!!! I like to get out and laugh and have fun and enjoy the simple things in life when I can. Like most of you ladies with kid's, I'm a package deal. I also hit my knees every night and give thanks for another day. I wear my heart on my sleeve and I'm honest to a fault. I'm just hoping, one day God will bless me with a woman that I can go back to back with against this screwed up world. Sorry if I'm being to serious, I'm just trying to keep it real. If your willing to take a chance? I'm sure I could bring some laughter into your life, and even put a smile on your face :O} P.S. I don't mind if a woman drink's or parties, as long as she can hold her own!!! UPDATE: I've been back in the gym since June 25th and have cut down on my smoking, and hope to one day quit.
