I am young at heart, with a great sense of humor, very involved with friends & family. I have 2 sons. My 5 year old grandson is a precious part of my life. We have new adventures each week when I babysit. I visit with my mom weekly in a care facility where she resides. On the weekends I like to spend time with friends or have family dinners. I do miss the warmth of a "significant other", though. It would be delightful to share dinners, movies, walks & talks with a positive & adventurous companion. My interests include gardening - Lots of fresh veggies in summer! Also love travel, camping (I can pitch my own tent & start the campfire!), fishing, canning, baking my own bread, cooking with wine - (sometimes I even put it in the food)! I read extensively and enjoy waking to every new day. Love tropical climates! In the past I would spend 2 or 3 months a year in Mexico. Returned there in 2014 after a 7 year absence. My amigos welcomed me back with open arms & return invitations. Must study up on my Spanish lessons for 2015!. Love to travel in BC as well - the Okanagan in summer especially - lovely fruit and wineries! When weather permits, like to explore our local rivers, lakes & beaches -beach combing!. Favorite restaurants are Sushi, authentic Chinese, Dim Sum, Pho, Thai. Home cooking & bbqing take precedence over dining out, though - especially with a partner! Music interests vary from some oldies to rock & roll, and heavy metal. TV shows such as the Knowledge Network (I'm a fan of David Suzuki), Discovery Channel, Sci-Fi Channel, CSI, Criminal Minds, & Les Stroud (survivor man), Canadian Pickers & Murdoch Mysteries interest me.
I am looking for a companion who can appreciate - and has close family ties - someone who is energetic, humorous, and passionate, yet understands the need for personal space occasionally. If you're a Grampa - awesome! If you love to cook (with wine) & barbeque - extra points!
"Dating" was my profile choice because that needs to happen first before deciding whether or not to progress to "long term". If happy with companionship or friendship, that's OK also. Wouldn't it be great to have a friend to spend time with, or perhaps travel with to Mexico for the winters? Each day is a new adventure! Enjoy it with me! Rather than "add me to a favorite list" or click on my profile in the "meet me" section, message me....don't be shy.....I will reply. Gracias for visiting my profile....all the best to you. Be healthy & happy!
