I'm an optimist who truly believes God's words: "I have plans to prosper you and not harm you" (Jeremiah 29:11). I'm fun-loving, easy going, well-read, and down to earth. I'm as comfortable at a state dinner as a family picnic. I enjoy fishing, golfing, gardening, and cooking, as well as museums, concerts, ethnic festivals and dining out. I love to read, especially history books and historical novels (this makes sense because I'm a history teacher!), am nuts about old movies (Casablanca, The Searchers, Arsenic & Old Lace), and have eclectic tastes in music (classical, rock & roll, country, jazz, blues). There's a special place in my heart for kids, old folks and animals, as well as the down & out. Turn ons are: kind and compassionate men who make me laugh and are in-tune with God and nature.
