After being a Long Islander for most of my life, I moved to Florida eight years ago. Friends would say that I'm upbeat. I love my children and grandchildren more than I can say, of travel, photography, great-conversation, music and the water (lakes and the ocean). restaurants, museums, art, sports, interest me. A person who is in love with his family and life, and is seriously interested in meeting a very special woman and sharing his life and love, would be my very special man.
