During the summer I can be found boating on the river; everyday if I can help it. Only rain, high winds or nobody to play with keeps me off the water.
I read a lot & don't own a TV. Which is strange considering that I have several hundred dvds & few books. I loved "The Diary of Anne Frank" and have been waiting for a sequel. I'm fairly well-read, have no sense of humor & am a fairly rational person. Please ignore all the signs to the contrary.
Not a homebody, I'm usually gone in the daytime. I love being outdoors, although not so much in the winter. I like going to my friend's Farm of Madness occasionally for bar-b-q, beer, free-style goat roping & donkey tossing. I like target shooting & being in the woods. I also like going to museums, which I'll admit is kinda weird.
I'm not a loud person & I rarely get angry. I love riding my 4WD 4-wheelers. I don't have a street bike right now, but still have a class "M."
I'm Honest & truthful; One always knows where they stand with me. Law Enforcement Officers are exempted from this statement. (I might be crazy, but I'm not stoopid) Apparently, I'm not a conservative since throughout my life I've always heard it said that "that boy's not right."
I've flown airplanes, but not recently. If the pilot dies in flight, I'm pretty sure that I can land the thing. Hopefully, no more pilots will get mouthy & die in flight. That was a joke, of course. (The coroner's inquest is over, so can we please let it drop now?)
I cannot juggle, yodel and am not very good at congering demons, so please don't ask about those things. I seem to be mechanically inclined & can fix all sorts of things, but refuse to work on cars, not even my own. Kind of scary, but I'm FAA certified to fix airplanes, which I used to do. If you own a jet, we really need to talk. I'm pretty good at cussing, but there doesn't seem to be much of a demand for that.
I can predict the future, but only in retrospect. My memory must be great since I can't remember the last thing I forgot. I'm somewhat educated & my advanced degree is a J.D.
I love all animals, but my favorite animal is a cow, but that's for culinary reasons. Other critters I just like to pet. Or stare at them until they get embarrassed. For some strange reason dogs seem to like me, which I can't figure out.
Nota Bene: I'm not this absurd in person, when I get on a keyboard my fingers tend to get weirdy. I can, however, guarandamntee that you won't be bored around me.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Ideally, I'd like to be flown on a Champagne flight aboard a private jet to a caribbean island for a Kobe beef dinner where trained dolphins will perform a synchronized ballet for my delight. (Please don't go overboard and have a small native islander sacrificed in my honor, but that would be touching.)
My second preference for a first date would be a quiet place to talk, like lunch or dinner.
