Hi there and thank you for taking the time to read my profile and hopefully we'll find enough interests to be compatible. I'm on this site to find my forever 'Fishing Buddy' but if you drink like a fish please keep on fishing. In my opinion 3-4 glasses of wine or any alcohol every day is excessive and we would definitely not have that in common.
I'm retired (early buyout) from the nations largest HMO - KPMG Div. of Research medical organization and went onto the real estate mortgage fields. Have been retired 7 years and loving every day - not a slow one yet and finally my life and time belongs to me.
I love dogs and most animals (4 legged variety only) and my dog owns me. I've volunteered for animal shelters and placement for those in need of care and new homes. We made national news on the Tom Brokaw news years ago exposing pet stores selling 'puppy mill' dogs. One of my dogs recently died of cancer and it breaks my heart...RIP little Maddie.
I live in the beautiful Livermore valley that offers so much variety - we have 50+ wineries and several golf courses. Lake Del Valle is a gorgeous place for a picnic - but 'beware' of wildlife stealing your food (includes ants). The hiking trails offer beautiful mountain & lake views plus overnight camping is available depending on the season. The redeveloped quaint downtown area is lined with fine and casual dining restaurants (best kept secret is a prime rib/garlic toasted french dip au jus sandwich shop), movie theaters, performing arts entertainment and recently opened the high-end Paragon outlet shopping mall housing 130 shops...80 more completed by 2015. If this is reading like a travel brochure please come check us out...follow me and I think you'll like us.
Most of all, I'm easily entertained and mundane tasks are fun when you're with the person you care for...
I'm self sufficient, independent, intelligent (high IQ), loving and loyal. I have no intentions of changing you or your life other than possibly making it better and if you're not a prince it's ok - cuz I'm not really a princess. Please no frogs and if no picture - no contact. I look forward to meeting you.
