The one thing I am passionate about...
My family, my faith and my friends are of utmost importance to me. I enjoy upbeat people with a zest for life. Age is only an attitude. Being active, exploring life, and new adventures are my goals. I want to live each day to the fullest. So much to see and do, no time to waste!
I typically spend my leisure time
I live an active life, try to plan for each day. I don't just sit around. I play tennis twice a week, walk, duplicate bridge, in a stock club, enjoying cooking and entertaining in my home. I am in a poker club, and we play twice a month, have been together for 38 years. I have season tickets for two theater venues, and enjoy the movies if you can find a decent one. Everyday is a great adventure. I usually spend the month of May at South Padre Island. The highlight of my traveling recently was a trip to Alaska, where I tried zip lining. Great fun!
The most influential person in my life has been
I like a man who has an adventuresome spirit, a twinkle in his eye, and a lift in his step. A man of faith, who is honest, moral, forthright, thoughtful; someone who knows and can express his feelings. A man who likes to share his life and his experiences. A man who enjoys a good laugh, even if it is about him. Someone who is good at planning interesting activities, and has a high energy level.
The first thing people notice about me
I am friendly, interested in others, enjoy conversing with them.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I have just read a book about a friend of mine who was a US Congressman. He was one of the last of his kind, a true statesman (not a politician), and an a man of faith. It was, of course interesting to me, because he is a wonderful friend.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My four children who are mature and all doing well ,
- My faith which keeps me looking forward.
- My friends and the wonderful relationships that I have had.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Nothing in particular.

A little more about me
I think that I am a warm, easy person to be with. I see humor in most of life. I enjoy all types of activities, love the Astros, Rockets, hunting, fishing, skiing, rafting, cooking, exploring interesting restaurants (especially ethnic foods). I am an affection person if the chemistry and commitment is there, and like to hold hands in the movies.
