my hobbies are outdoor, hunting, fishing, laying on a blanket at night and stargazing with a woman that is enchanted in the moment of wonderment and think of the odds of us being there. i am a spiritual person and strive to pay it forward and help others. i am a grandfather of five that live away from me and cherish the greatest of all loves and that is the love of a child. the world is changing and becoming a dangerous place. but time stops when im with the woman i will come to love as she will me. i grew up on a farm and am the 7th generation to still be on it. my parents were loving and hard working and instilled ethics to thier children to be individualist and work together and seek better than we had.
i left our farm and studied engineering and had a life threatening accident while working in a nuclear plant and spent 2 years on crutches healing all the time being told by doctors i would never walk again after being physically rehabbed, i began walking w/o crutches. when going to various doctors walking and running some, the doctors asked me who the doctor was that helped me to walk. i replied to the doctor "the great physician" whom made the lame to walk. today i walk and run as if it never happened. my mother is a wonderful songstress and got the gene from her and began a freelancing singing career with several bands after healing . for several years i toured with a band called beaver teeth and later waterfall same band different name.the band played with percy sledge and earlier with b.j. thomas i played percussion instruments conga's and tympany and sang background and solo when percy was unable to sing. my favorite song is "when a man loves a woman" to this day. there is an awesome feeling when dancing with a woman in a bar or tavern and it's warm and the essence of a fine perfume on her neck as i softly graze her neck ....drives me crazy.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
as a true southern gentleman in all my comportment, my first date will be an introduction to the lady followed with a gentle kiss on her hand if it is offered with a slight bow. we would meet at an agreed location making her more comfortable with the location and pleasing conversation. i will pull her chair for seating and telling her how beautiful she is and thank her for coming. i will be engaging and encouraging to make this date all about her. if we choose to make it a dinner date, it would be great and if there is a band...shall we dance. from this first date i would hope if she was pleased that we would talk more and see how we felt about where do we go from here.
