Semi-retired (get busy living or get busy dying)
I sold my home of 20 years in Bellevue Wa. (just across the lake from Seattle) and most of my possessions in June 2013 and relocated to the sun in July.
I have found if you want honesty you should be honest too. I want honesty.
I am 5'7" (my real height), 200lbs (my real weight)
(my waist is 34-36 so you can decide athletic, average, or
I was married 1 time for 20+ years. We lived together only AFTER we got married.
I AM DIVORCED, not "kind of divorced", not "we haven't spoken in years", not "we still live together but we live our separate lives (I'm sure we have all heard other descriptions of living situations)". I'm just DIVORCED.
I am the father of 2 (and only 2, there are none that I don't count).
Had my first child 10 years after I was married (really, after married).
Had my first child with the woman I was married too, my wife. lol
Had my second child with my wife (the same woman) 3 years after that.
I will never claim I was the perfect husband because I WAS NOT!
NOTE TO EVERYONE: Don't believe anyone who always blames the other person. If you do believe them be ready for everything to be your fault!
My kids are 21 and 18. I had sole custody and raised them. They lived with me until I moved to the Valley.
NONE OF THE PREVIOUS STATEMENTS ARE A PROCLAMATION OF THE RIGHT OR WRONG WAY TO LIVE A LIFE, THEY ARE JUST A PARTIAL ACCOUNTING OF MY LIFE.
My hair is in Dreadlocks. I have had them for 17+ years.
I am named on one medical patent (patent # 5,793,044) and worked on 3 others. They are used in almost every hospital in the world (and no, I did not get rich designing these devices. I was hired to design medical devices).
I like music, lots of different kind of music. On my MP3 player is Rock, Gospel, R&B, some Rap, some Country, lots of Oldies, and probably a couple of Show Tunes.
If you ask. I'll answer. I have a tendency to answer all questions with TMI.
BTW, if I favorite you or click the MEET ME, it's because there doesn't seem to be a better way to mark the profiles that catch your attention.
I have my own money, I have cars, I have a motorcycle ( I don't ride it very often though, I realized I'm mortal), I've had 2 boats (it was a happy day each time I bought my boats and an even happier day each time I sold them).
Thanks for reading my profile and consider saying hello.
