The one thing I am passionate about...
Exploring new things, learning. I can be passionate in many things and interests. I will dive into them and learn everything I can on a current subject or interests. I am a military veteran and both my children and step-son are currently serving active duty so I am very proud and passionate about our Armed Forces and the commitment they have chosen.
I typically spend my leisure time
Hiking, planning trips keeping in touch with family. Exercise, I am lucky to have access to a personal trainer 3x a week. I also take a 3 mile walk in the evenings listening to my music. Feeding the trout and secure the chickens, which I watch for my employer. Fresh organic eggs yum! I love history so pow-wows, rendezvous and renaissance fair are fun visits. Street fairs and weekend drives are enjoyable as well.
The most influential person in my life has been
Honesty and integrity with a little bit of a nerd for Sci-Fi. Someone that can laugh at themselves and at me, because I'm funny! Someone that likes to dress up for a special occasion or relax at home and is also comfortable outdoors. Intelligent to carry on conversations on a wide variety of subjects and is open to share her passions with me. I want a 50/50 partner to build life experiences with. To look back in 40 years and say "We had a blast!"
The first thing people notice about me
Friendly, open and polite
The last book I read and enjoyed
Gardening in Idaho, Organic livestock farming.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My Family
- My Health
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I am an introvert and sometimes I need a little nudging to get more involved. If I tease you, playfully, it's because I like you. Must be the childhood, playground, little kid in me.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I have my nerd side with Sci-Fi and Super Hero conversations. What would Batman do? It doesn't define me. I have way too many interest to just choose one. Caring and Sharing? I gave my older brother a kidney 28 years ago, never had a second thought. Nor have I ever asked for it back! Lol I have also sponsored a child in Chad. I have made a commitment to him until adulthood. :) I enjoy trying to be the best I can be and living through a positive example. I am slow to anger. I cant hold a grudge. I am in touch with my mother weekly. She taught me to open doors, walk to the outside of the sidewalk and offer others the last seat as a gentleman.
