Premodern critical realist who cracks too many jokes. Evangelical fundamentalist. Have read the Bible thru (Gen-Rev) 8. 5 times slowly and carefully. Highly verbal, even given to committing doggerel. Creative ideas man. Myers-Briggs type ENTP (but reject psychology's claim to be a science) . Love travel and calculated-risk adventure. Broad scope of interests. Surprisingly (but selectively) affectionate for a curmudgeon. Not really athletic these days, but healthy and active for a geezer. Seldom underfoot because gone a lot. Always taking courses. Working on credentials in Islamic Studies and Philosophy of Law. Also upgrading merchant marine license to 1600 tons. Favorite TV show in 1955 was Rin Tin Tin. Lugubriously impecunious.
