The one thing I am passionate about...
clothes, Civil War, uniforms for Civil War, Revolutionary War. WW1, War of 1812. History, especially from American Revolution through WW1, dining out, looking good and dressing well, keeping weight down, reading, collecting. Antique stores and 2nd hand stores. Traveling, cruises.
I typically spend my leisure time
getting on-line with computer, civil war activities, reading, especially about history, dining out, watching movies at home or out. Antique stores. I also enjoy talking on the phone with friends or anyone that is pleasant to talk with.
The most influential person in my life has been
Loyalty, friendship, being able to communicate well, and not being a controlling type of person. I want someone who will be understanding and not too judgemental. I prefer someone who does not enjoy conflicts, and will work with me in a caring manner to solve problems as they arise. I would also like an LDS person who wants to go to Church regularly, perhaps wants to be sealed, but is not too pious about the Church. I also like someone who dresses well and cares about their appearance, including keeping their weight down and making themselves look as attractive as possible. It also would be nice if that persons likes what I like.
The first thing people notice about me
That I look younger than I am. They also notice that I dress well and take pride in how I look. They also notice that I am well groomed, practice good hygiene, and take care of myself.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Ask me later. I read a lot of books. Currently reading None Died in Vain by Robert Leckle, The Saga of the American Civil War. It is one of the better books, in my opinion, of that Great Conflict. Leckle goes into just enough detail about certain people, battles, and other things, that make the reading quite interesting. There's nothing worse than reading a dull book.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- good health
- financial security
- still have good looks at 68
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Genuine, Loyal, Respectful
A little more about me
I try my best to get along with all people. I don't always have to be right. I actually enjoy learning new or correct things, even from people younger than me. I am loyal, trustworthy, and like to be friends as well as have a romantic and intimate life. I am usually fun to be with and enjoy being with just them or with them and perhaps a group or a party. I try to be flexible in understanding others and seeing their viewpoints. I am also willing to try new things; some anyway.
