I am an old values kinda guy. I believe strongly in the values of honesty (especially your mate) , fairness, dependability, & independance. I am mostly a laid back kinda guy with much compassion for the less advantaged folks who have given life a good effort but just seem to get kicked down by life. I do strongly believe in people being responsible for themselves, teaching their children to do so, and facing life's challenges head on and not running from them. I have a wonderful daughter, married to a great guy and am expecting my first grandchild in Dec. 05. I am getting close to retirement at NASA as a Space Shuttle Program resource analyst. I hope to be able to travel and see more of the US and abroad after retirement. Just went to Hawaii in September and hope to visit many other countries before I get too old to enjoy the sights. I also like spending time in the Smokies (when the leaves turn) and at the beach, rideing my motorcycle and SeaDoo, the serinity of my farm, flying remote control planes, concerts, rodeos, dining out, and country dance. I have a travel trailer set up on Guntersville lake which I currently spend alot of summer weekends at and hoping to get back into fishing and skiing more. If there is a question ya want me to respond to in particular, ask. AS I said I AM honest, unlike some folks I have met, and will be happy to share anything you'd like to know about me.
