In His Own Words

About him

Was an orthopaedic surgeon (fractures, hip replacements), do some medico-legal work (reports for solicitors). Am witty, speak intelligently on subjects. enjoy cinema, theatre, rugby, walking.and read books I should have read when younger. I enjoy mathematics, cryptic crosswords and languages. Love music; play a piano modestly and sing (bass). Son of an Anglican vicar taught me patience and how to listen - my father was a genius at it.

Born in Wales, attended University College, London, qualifying1970 and retired after 37 years. Worked in England was a lecturer in Sheffield and did research. The career was demanding; since retirement prefer simple things I had no time for previously but now a pleasure. It may surprse, but ironing a shirt well is an achievment not domestic drudgery. Like to travel.. .Now a widower, have 4 boys and 1 daughter. Have 6 grandchildren, beautiful youngsters at no cost or responsibilty..

I cook reasonably, wash dishes, paint and paper, repair items, drive safely, push a hoover, dust a surface, wipe an ornament and a bottom, sew on a button and up a laceration, do woodwork, set a fracture and a trap, tell if your hot physically and socially. Make a bed and lie on it. I am reposnsible for my faults and actions not others. I can laugh until tears (my mother was an infectious laughter maker). I know some jokes. Above all, I can listen and am capable of telling bull-sh*! from monkey business. I am not artisitic but appreciate it..

Resident in Usk Valley, Wales beneath the highest peak in the South UK (Pen-y-Fan, in the Beacons). It is beautiful, surrounded by sheep and cattle farming (11/1 sheep/humans - lamb is finest in the world) there are mountains, streams, rivers, walks, cycling, climbing, hiking, canals. Contrasts are extreme: SAS train in the mountains, a canal barge meanders canal while the Hay festival is 10 miles away.

About his ideal match

I ask for someone soulful, pleasant in speech, thought, appearance laced with a ready wit (include a SAE for details on amounts). Easier if living nearby but not critical. Like a person who can debate and challenge though sensibly; this, I emphasise, is not a request for a vituperative vexed virago (posh for a fulminating female firebrand with a loud gob) but someone who can present her case with ease and understanding. Not artistic, appreciate someone who is and can tell me pale lime green is better than crimson on the wall over the mantel shelf.

Photographs are 2012 or now; apologies for them; alone, (awww!) used my new ipad and tried a smoke and mirror effect and now you are painfully aware of my limitations at photography. Also, ran out of space on the profile - the machine kept telling me I'd used too many characters (I told it I wasn't writing a play when it behaved like a headmaster). A vicious precis ended with English too clipped; now it's become an advert for a rental cottage rather than the sensitive exposition of unbridled virtue, wealth and sex appeal I intended (my attempt at self deprecation).

For an English rose who feels a Welshman akin to Ebola virus. I am not a pugnacious troll with a large club (it's rather small actually); I leave the sheep well alone (except when served on Sunday), I shower daily spraying with Eau D'homme (Estee Lauder 84.00 for 50 mls see my website), I have a Welsh accent but can imitate Richard Burton (Once more into the breech boyo) and I swear occasionally (on a bible) especially when we lose. Taught to clear meat from between teeth with the aid of Miss Flossie and not a finger nail; I don't burp, chew with mouth open and if there are more coming cut the bread thinner. Also, I drink wine as well as beer and odd G&T. Travelled widely: Neath, Swansea, Cardiff, Aberystwyth and Llanfairpwllgwyngyllchwyndrobwll llantisiliogogoch (can say it too - deed to goodness). If you want a "larf" and a kiss at the Sainsbury checkout try an orthopod. God bless. xxx.
