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. Always looking for a reason to take a cruise, even a lack of beer won't stop me. My boat's got plenty of room to move (data plate says it'll hold 15, but I've only got 8 adult life-vests, so that's my limit.) It has a restroom (very important) & most of the comforts of home.
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, mildly educated, have a sense of humor & am a fairly rational person.
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, free-style goat roping & donkey tossing. I like target shooting & being in the woods.
I'm not a loud person & I rarely get angry. I love riding 4-wheelers, but don't have anywhere close to keep & ride them at the moment. I sold my last street bike (still have a class M) because riding street isn't too exciting, except on rare occasions. That kind of excitement I can do without, had too many friends "excited" to death.
I've also flown airplanes, but not recently. If the pilot dies in flight, I'm pretty sure that I can land an airplane. Hopefully, no more pilots will get mouthy & die in flight. That was a joke, of course. (The coroner's inquiry is over, so can we please let it drop now?)
When I listen to music it's usually classic rock with some from the 80's & 90's, but not the stuff that's been played to death on the radio. There's a lot of great stuff that didn't get airplay. As good as it is, it's getting old though, I need to find some newer stuff.
I cannot juggle, yodel and am not very good at obedience training for fish, so please don't ask about those things. I seem to be mechanically inclined & can fix all sorts of things, but I refuse to work on cars (I won't fix my own car, but I can fix airplanes, boats, lawn mowers, etc). I'm pretty good at cussing, but there doesn't seem to be much of a demand for that lately.
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 make my own spaghetti sauce because I can't buy anything like it in stores (My mama spoiled me, she was 100% Dago), and my Italian beef is pretty decent as well. Other than that, I can make some serious toast & sometimes bacon.
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 until they get embarrassed.
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.
