During the summer I can be found boating on the river; everyday if I can help it. Only rain, high wind or nobody to play with keeps me off the water. 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, but I guess Ms. Frank gave up writing for some reason. I have no sense of humor & am a fairly rational person. Please ignore all the signs to the contrary.
Not a homebody, I'm usually gone in the daytime. I love being outdoors, although not so much in the winter. Sometimes I visit my friend's Farm of Madness for bar-b-q, beer, minor explosions & donkey tossing. I enjoy target shooting & riding my 4-wheelers. I also like going to museums, which I'll admit is kinda weird for a guy.
I'm not a loud person & rarely get angry. I'm honest & truthful.
Apparently, I'm I've been a liberal from a young age because I remember my father introducing me to people saying "This is my son. The boy's not right."
I've flown airplanes, but not recently. If the pilot dies in flight, I'm pretty sure I can land the thing. Hopefully, no more pilots will get mouthy & die in flight. That was a joke, of course. (The coroner's inquest is over, so can we please let it drop now?)
I cannot juggle or yodel and am not very good at conjuring demons, so please don't ask me to do those things. I seem to be mechanically inclined & can fix things, but refuse to work on cars. It's kind of scary, but I'm certified to fix airplanes. I'm pretty good at cussing, but there doesn't seem to be much of a demand for that.
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'm somewhat educated & my advanced degree is a J.D.
I love all animals & my favorite animal is a cow, but that's for culinary reasons. Other critters I just like to pet. Or stare at them until they get embarrassed. For some reason dogs seem to like me, which I can't figure out.
Nota Bene: I'm not this absurd in person, when I get on a keyboard my fingers tend to get weirdy. I can tell you that you won't be bored around me.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
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, although that would be touching.)
My second preference for a first date would be a quiet place to talk.
