If you are looking for someone real, without any falseness or malice, you've made a good start here. I enjoy so many things I'm sure we can find lots to do and/or talk about. I am enthusiastic, I love to learn, and I am interested in nearly everything. I am deeply loving and compassionate, and I try to apply those qualities to every aspect of my life (though like any of us I sometimes fall short). I can cheer you up when you need it, and snuggle with you just because. I am honorable and faithful, I don't cheat, I don't lie, and I don't squelch on a bet. And I love to have fun, with my special someone most of all, but able to make my own too.
I'm into horses, animals of every kind, campfires, weaving on looms big and small, quilting, and living within (or under) my means. I love learning about old-time ways.
I'm actually as sincere a person as you could ever meet, even though I do like to joke around. I spend my spare time trying to bring a nice old farm back to life. Have 3 horses, and such a nice dog (if we ever have a break-in, I know I can rely on her unflinching sympathy and expressions of concern). I love bluegrass music and play -- sort of -- piano, guitar, fiddle, and banjo. Country life is precious to me; I wouldn't want to live any other way.
I've been out West a lot, have worked as a wrangler and mule packer. I loved the West, but I never stopped being homesick for Ohio (yes, seriously). I love Ohio's trees, fields, and meadows, and the soft warm Ohio summer nights - and the fireflies most of all. Career-wise, I worked in the computer field for a while before going to vet school, then practiced for a time, and now I help develop Web services for my fellow veterinarians. Left-leaning in most of my social and political views, though not all.
Thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to write if just to chat - I value friendships of many kinds!
