In His Own Words

About him

I have very definite views on life, both human life and the natural world which surrounds us. I never fail to be amazed by the sheer variety of features which this beautiful world presents to us. The landscapes, sunsets, nature, most animals and good family dogs. I will talk to any animal, be it domestic or wild. Love the smell of all sorts of lovely plants. People-wise? Those who give of themselves in whatever way, for the benefit of their community or nation. I love art, architecture, sculpture, beautiful gardens, good music and humour. I also appreciate the challenge and satisfaction of DIY, usually on a purely practical scale. I draw and paint. Have written quite a bit of poetry, serious and comical and the occasional tune. Have also written a few short, children's stories, a touch of 'Pseudo Shakespear' and lately, have penned a couple of TV-type comedy sketches, which quite surprised me and made me chuckle. I would like to get some of my work published soon. Quite enjoy the outdoors, be it walking, camping, canoeing, used to ski years ago and could try again. (Love the Outdoors.)
I keep fit through my way of life, but don't 'do' team sports or the gymn, but am happy to walk or cycle several miles at a time, or canoe up a river. This is life, let's contribute to it and be happy.
I don't get bored, I'm interested in too many things. By the way, I do not like the misuse and adulteration of the English language. I'm constantly correcting the BBC, vocally, of course, I don't write in to them, I just moan!
I do enjoy the opportunity to cook a decent meal. Quite house-trained by and large.
Succinctly, my likes far outweigh my dislikes.
And I do enjoy singing; and writing prose and poetry. Let's compare notes. NOTES? MUSIC? Sorry, I do enjoy the occasional play on words.
I also have a reputation for my sense of humour, sometimes corny, but never unkind. I actually rewrote a Panto some years ago to inject more humour. I have also played comedy on stage a few times. Ask me later.

About his ideal match

A lady who is a lady. Feminine, perhaps with a Tomboy side to her, not afraid to get her hands dirty sharing time in the garden. You probably know more about gardening than I do. Enjoys a good joke, dancing and singing in the kitchen. Happy to dress up or dress down. Whatever we are sharing, we are sharing together as equals, as companions, being each other's friend, confidant and support. Likes to hold hands and be proud to be together and seen to be together. Teach me things; both good and also flippant things.
Where sharing is concerned, an old quote has come again to mind;
A woman is never so powerful as when armed with her weaknesses.
And now my add-on to that;
Much more so on the male; of course,
Than when brandishing a show of force.
A true Lady knows; be not demanding,
But rules her man through understanding.

You are allowed to comment on this, or contradict it; it is the subtlety and gentleness of a woman which wins a man's heart.

I might be retired, but I haven't finished yet. There are still things that I want to do to help our world. An active crew member, not a passenger.
What do you think? Happy to share the journey?
