I'm living proof that the traditional gentleman is not a memory. Small town by upbringing and choice, city lights by need to make a living and an occasional desire for the flash of "civilization". Colorful through and through; from a green thumb to a slightly red neck, the blue streaks when I stub a toe to the white hat. My sense of humor ranges from Victor Borge to the Stooges. I have eclectic music tastes that run from Fogelberg and Nanci to Counting Crows and Coltrane. I love to dance, and can usually two-step without permanent damage to the toes. Honesty is not an option, but a given, and I only play games with cards or the like.I'm a big fan of the old favorites. Manners and intelligence are always a good start. I'm looking for someone who is real, with a heart, mind, conscience, and twinkle in her eye. I'm looking for someone who enjoys a night on the town just as much as a quiet evening in front of a fire with a guitar and something to sip, or an afternoon out and about. I'm family/friend oriented person, and appreciate the same in a woman. I'd like to meet someone who hasn't given up on romance; frankly, someone who doesn't give up on anything she believes in! It's said a picture is worth a thousand words. I could fill volumes with the picure I have in my head and heart.
