I'm an easy-going,honest,down to earth,liberal minded,retired,gentleman.I enjoy country living,the outdoors,and creating in my wood and metal shop.Not much into organized religion nor am I bar-nightclub fancier either.That is why I've taken this way to try to meet someone.Since retiring I've definitely not become a couch potato,between working on my neighbors horse and cattle farm,and trying to get my place to a point of self-sufficiency,well I think I'm working harder now....but I sure do enjoy it a lot more! My main goal now is to prepare for what I feel is a very uncertain future.I think that humanity is going to encounter some very drastic changes very soon.Of course I want to have a lot of good times yet before this all comes to pass. I have a wide range of musical interest,from classical to folk,from classic rock to classic country,and I've been known to crank up the bagpipe cd first thing in the morning to get me going! I tend to prefer the path least traveled Hiking,canoeing,fishing and horseback riding are my favorite get away's in this part of the country.When I need a vacation though its someplace tropical for me.The beach,snorkeling,and deep-sea fishing are my favorite ways to relax. I'm looking for an easy-going,honest,sensuous,passionate, in decent shape lady.Someone that has a good sense of humor,likes the outdoors,and is not afraid to get her hands dirty.Turn-offs for me would be someone quick-tempered,heavy drinking,and lazy. Being a staunch republican would probably not sit to well either.Sorry,but I had to put that in there. I have a pretty good life and thank God every day for what He has given me,all I need is someone to share it with.....maybe its you!
