I like to barbeque, I eat mostly vegetarian but I can grill a killer smoked beer-can-chicken for my friends. I'm a movie buff and I have a large collection. Movies from the 30's and 40's are among my favorites. I'm a jack of all trades, good at working with my hands, and I'm a deep thinking man. I have many and varied interests.
I love to hear live music and go to concerts whenever I can. I usually go to smaller venues, they're more intimate. I often have some project around the house on the weekends, such as tending my plants in the patio or painting some woodwork. I built a 500 gallon fish pond in my backyard a few summers ago. It's a lot of fun and very relaxing to watch the fish. Dragonflies come in the summer and I have 3 wild frogs in the pond (they moved themselves in). It really has a lot going on, in and around it during the season. My backyard is really cool, it's one of my favorite hangouts! I throw a huge BBQ party every year.
I feel I go the extra mile for those I care about. I get a kick out of doing sweet and unexpected things now and then. It could be a card, flowers, care package for a sick friend, or taking a woman on a “mystery date”. I might take her someplace off the beaten path she’s never been. We could do or see something new to both of us and be pleasantly surprised together. My date should be able to suggest things too. I am not looking for a tag-along. She must have a mind of her own. I tend to like a woman who doesn’t really fit in the mainstream, a woman with offbeat interests and ideas. I like a woman who isn’t a typical Barbie doll beauty, but one who has her own unique prettiness and style. Is that you???
I love kids and have 2 nephews and a niece, I do not want to have my own, however. I quit smoking in Oct 2010, and have used an electronic cigarette since then. It has no odor and is much healthier.
