I like drinking wine by the river, boating on the Columbia, Puget Sound, the Yakima, my bathtub. I like exploring new waters, arguing with my dog, and long days in the sun. I like anything to do with the water, be it fishing on my boat, crabbing on the coast, or just drifting along listening to the waves. I like movies, all of them, gangster flicks the best.
I have a very demanding job that I love, it takes a lot of my time and a lot of my energy. I believe in what I am doing, I think we are making a better world, and that matters to me. My job provides me with a tremendous sense of satisfaction and a comfortable living.
I like classic rock, but a lot of new music these days is fantastic too, I am not someone who believes that if it was written after 1980 it sucks. Of course, the stuff that really gets to me is all early 70's..
I like to laugh, I crack myself up a lot, I am frequently inappropriate with my humor, I would like to apologize in advance. Sometimes I overestimate how funny I am.
I have three cats. I am trying to get my daughter to take two of them. One of them is probably here for good. He is grumpy and stinky, and no one else will love him. I try not to see a broader metaphor there.
I have lots of interests, from gardening to cooking to boating to fishing to astronomy to photography to wine to too much vodka on a Sunday afternoon (only sometimes!), and I'm looking for someone to share at least some of them with.
I am very close to my family emotionally, but not physically, they all live on the East Coast.
I am looking for someone with a sense of humor, who likes to laugh and can relax and enjoy some easy-going time together. Send me a note and say hi!
I like dinner as a first date, it provides enough time to get some sense of each other. I understand some people want a more casual first meeting, that's fine with me.
