IN EUROPE TILL SEPT 8th. Home Sweet HOME Tomorrow. I can't wait to sleep in my own bed again.
I'm a traveler and the world is my playground. I'm taking the advice of my doctors at the VA Hospital and getting into activities like golfing. Yes, I'm a Veteran and 100% Disabled. No, I do not suffer from PTSD. I took an injury to my hip and back. So I do not work, but I have a steady income. I love to cook. Not a fan of the clean up. I actually enjoy grocery shopping. Long as the Tool Boxes stay out of my way. I read Greek plays and stories to the mid 19th Century writers. Hard to beat a classic. My music taste range from the 1950's to late 1990's. Not a fan of this so called "current" music. Again, hard to beat a classic. But I am trying to expand my musical selection.
I can be sarcastic but my sister says I need more training at it. I'm a giver. While sitting near a camp fire in Missouri, I had an interesting conversation with a good friend of mine. I've known him for 12 years and hoping for many more. On my way home back to Texas, I had an epiphany and no, not in the religious meaning of the word. So I asked my good friend to describe me from his eyes and this is what he said. “Loren is a maker of stories, one who lives instead of dreams, and makes you believe, through his actions, that anything is possible.”
So many say they live life to the fullest and its a cliche. See above quote. Anyways....this is like the 4th time writing this profile of mine.
My final three thoughts...First...Yes, I love getting inked and I do have multiple tattoo's that are strategically hidden. . Except when I'm in shorts. Then the calf tattoo's are exposed. Secondly I do smoke cigars but in the process of eliminating that habit at the end of 2014. No, I'm not addicted to it since its nearly impossible to inhale the smoke. I relate it to certain things like mowing the yard, long distance drives and certain holidays like Memorial Day, 4th of July, Veteran's Day and finally New Years. Lastly...I do shave. I've been a bachelor for many years by choice. I decided to see 11 other countries instead of worrying about settling down too early. Hard to travel when raising a family.
