Hmmmmm....... I guess I'd better re-write this section...... it seems no matter what I say, someone just has to "read between the lines' and come up with the wrong ideas about me. I suppose that could just be an indication of my literary incapacity to accurately describe myself, but I prefer to think that I'm simply being missunderstood.
OK, here goes; first of all, I like motorcycles. That does not mean I am some kind of hard-core "living the life" biker dude - I am nothing of the sort. I just like bikes and, generally, the people that ride them.
Secondly, I like to work out and I used to be into bodybuilding. Some people seem to think that's a bad thing although I don't know why.......anyway, I make no apologies for it.
Thirdly, I enjoy target shooting ( not hunting, just shooting paper targets) and I am quite comfortable around firearms and the people who use them. If this is all it takes to become a social leper, then I'm afraid I'm doomed.....
Some of the less controversial things I like are:
Dogs. I don't think I've ever met a dog I didn't like, and I often find that dogs are better "people" than some real people are (certainly more honest anyway).
Hot weather, beaches, and palm trees. ( and piña coladas to go along with them).
Thunderstorms. Everybody needs a reminder now and then, that nature is more powerful then humans will ever be.
Humour.. If you're not laughing, how can you truly be enjoying life? I believe I have a great ( sometimes outrageous) sense of humour - and my friends seem to agree! ( but then, they are my friends and might not feel compelled to tell me if I'm being boring or bothersome).
Traveling. As a way to get to those beaches and palm trees mentioned above, and to meet interesting people, experience different cultures, and TRY NEW TYPES OF FOOD!!!
