I am not looking for someone to live with, but rather someone I can't live without.I am warm, confident,easy going with a good sense of humor and affection. I enjoy cooking, that should be a bonus, gardening and just about anything outdoors. I am the father of 3 grown boy's, I am newly retired, after 34 years with the same co. I am giving some of my free time to the local food bank, keeps me busy and among people. I have started to bowl, and have joined 2 leagues for the fall. I have a lot of positive qualities that I bring to a relationship. Don't want to be here just as an e-mail buddy, as in the real world it's meeting in real time and sharing our stories together. Nothing beats seeing that smile or hearing that laugh to let you know you are making a connection. Go ahead and take the first step and see it as an opportunity to find what you are looking for." The best is yet to be". I also do what I can to help DEFENDERS OF WILDLIFE, a great organization trying to protect endangered animals, accross this great country.
