Let's meet at the beach or the mountains and walk and talk and get to know. My friends and family would say that i put them first. What i am proud of is my three kids who are productive adults and good citizens. And of the kids who were my Boy Scouts. They have gone on to become firemen, police officers and military members. Friends first is what i am looking for. Chemistry and friendship are the greatest start. Walking and talking (beach, mountains, desert) are what i enjoy. I smoke a pipe (but not cigarettes or cigars) and usually just at work. Most of my work is outdoors at Fort Irwin (near Barstow) which is a great place for me to work after 23 years in the Army. Animals and kids are my two favorites and i like to talk to both (lol). Almost any kind of music is fine but my favorites are classic rock and country western. Cooking any meal together is very intimate. I will hold your hand as we walk and i will buy you flowers for no particular reason and I am very loyal. Sometimes ride a motorcycle and really like mexican food.
