I'm in denial about my age; not quite sure when I reached 48, but that's what the ol' birth certificate says. I pretty much just seem to take life's rollercoaster ride in stride. Nothing like a slow steady climb and then suddenly take a plunge to leave your stomach back at the top of the climb! LOL, I've never been married, have no kids, prefers jeans, boots and a ball cap to dresses but will wear a dress. Being raised in an Army family I’ve been fortunate to have lived and visit many places. As an active duty Sailor for the last 20 years I’ve been to just as many different places. Traveling has been fun and moving every 3 years taught me to find something positive about every place and making friends along the way has always been easy; yet not always so easy on the relationship side.
Retired from the Navy in June 2013 as a Chief Damage Controlman and excited about this new adventure called "being a civilian and only working Monday to Friday."
I have 2 horses that believe i am their personal PEZ dispenser. Horses haven’t always been a part of my life, but since becoming friends with a girl who had 8 of her own, I can’t imagine my life without them. I see myself doing work with people and horses. Not as a trainer or barn manager, but more in the arena of psychotherapy; maybe with foster kids, or even wounded warriors.
There are many things that keep me busy and entertained. Last summer friends and I went camping with our horses to Tonasket WA where we rode every day, mended fences and rounded up wild horses. it was a blast! But concerts, hiking, sitting around a bonfire, playing tourist in new cities, movies, playing some pool, tossing some darts are all fun things too.
Things I'm not particularly fond of are spiders, snakes and ticks....they give me the heebie jeebies.
I’m looking for the same thing everyone else is looking for; someone to do things with, connect with, laugh with, spend time with, grow old with. Our interests don't have to be identical, in fact, they shouldn't be. We each should have things we enjoy doing with other friends that we could eventually share with each other. I would hope that you’re an animal lover, or at least tolerant of them. I’m not looking for someone who’s a body builder, but to all you guys out there with the killer athletic bodies, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! I really appreciate the view at the gym......it keeps me motivated on the treadmill; I can pretend I'm running after you. LOL
Im no fitness model. I am healthy and stay active. I go to the gym a couple times a week and typically jog 3-4 miles on saturday morning with my dogs. I did my first 5k last month at the VB Rock n Roll. That was fun and now have signed up for two more. Someone to trot with would be cool.
