Hi did the photo of me at my first snowshoe race catch your eye? The rest of my photos show that I like Bow Ties and have great calves and yes I have a Ducky bow tie but you have to ask to see it.
Now I was born in San Marino CA and have lived all my life within the same four mile area. I am youngest of four. I have work in the engineering and construction field since the early Eighties and since Ninety-one for the same company that has sent me to Columbia, for a month, Kazakhstan and Seattle each for a year and three years at UCLA. My passions are reading, board games, skiing and running (I got plenty of extra T-Shirts from running races so if you’re a serious shirt collector?).
For twenty years a season tickets holder to a Classical playhouse but I also have the complete Looney Tune DVD collection, and unlike most profiles I like TV and my taste in programs range from "Law and Order" to “Glee“.
I have traveled in Europe a half dozen times but with my salary you are more likely to experience the $10 movie date night at the Academy here in Pasadena than flying off to Paris for the weekend.
I am a lover of dogs who still gets misty eye when ever I see the original Lassie move. The radio in my car is tune to the oldies stations and the trunk of my car has my beach chair, umbrella, sunscreen (no tan I go straight to burn) and my kite. I have a risque sense of humor so if you can’t laugh or at least roll you eyes at something that I have told or shown my seventy-seven year old step-mother you are to prim for me.
I do not smoke or touch drugs but one of my soapbox issues is that I believe society would be better off if we treated the drug problem as a health issue instead of a criminal one.
As for my match I am seek someone whose smile takes my breath away and fills my heart with joy and who has laughing eyes. Who will fight for her own beliefs and respect mine even though she knows that I am wrong. Any greater description would be worthless since life has taught me that you might meet someone who does not meet a single one of your criteria, everything about them is wrong and yet magic happens and everything is oh so right and life is sweet.
Now I will end with a family story that I hope will bring a smile to your face and remind you of your own family memories. As noted I am baby of the family and as such in my late mothers eyes, I was always five years old.
So while taking her Christmas shopping at the local mall back in 1996 when I was forty and she was eighty-one, we stopped at the food court for something to eat. And when I got up from the table to leave she notice that I had some crumbs stuck to my lap and before I could do anything she grab my belt and started cleaning my crotch with a wet napkin with everyone walking around us (:-0 When I jump back and protested she give me a look that only a mother can and with all sincerity asked “what's wrong?” at the time it was very embarrassing but now that she is gone it is a funny warm memory.
Take care and remember always look on the bright side of life”.
