I have learning French on my bucket list and decided not to wait any longer. I am a military veteran. I loved my time in the service, lived in Europe and Asia, met folks from every continent. I love to travel and try eating the local cuisine (from snacks off carts, 5 course formal dinners, bar food, to all styles of restaurants, anything from the BBQ).
I am very curious - I like to read where my interest leads me. For most of my life I was very career oriented and a serious work-a-holic, but lately find my schedule is my own. Friends and family are the most important things to me.
I love to laugh - and be with people who make me laugh. My favorite game is Balderdash - I am a horrible liar, but love to try to get folks to believe my made-up balderdash definitions... You know it is my bogus play if you play with me and one of the answer choices is "the soft underbelly of a sea urchin". I am not always ticklish, but I like it when you try to tickle :)
The best part of camping is starting, feeding and poking at the fire. My brother is a fireman - so the poking is at a minimum when he comes.
I like to cook (sometimes my experiments turn out good, sometimes they make for a good story later :-O ) my homemade beef jerky rocks!
I like to fish, snow ski and take photographs. I have an entrepreneur's spirit, but have not found my fluglebinder yet. :)
I am a bad guesser - so if you have something on your mind just tell me. I promise to do the same.
Fall is my favorite season - Halloween is my favorite holiday.
I love spending time outside with friends.
I am a carnivore - can you grill a rare steak for me?
I like cream in my coffee
I like heffeweitzen beer
I like gravy on my chicken fried steak (I only weigh 135 so gravy is still ok :) )
I like real butter on my biscuits
If it is a veggie I probably prefer it raw
My recipe entry has been published in a Southern Living Cookbook
I love to be outside
I grew up skiing the mountains in Idaho and love going back to visit friends
