I�m a retired professional fire department captain. I was on the job for 33 years. My last 15 were spent in charge of a 105� aerial ladder truck. Many stories, some good, some bad. I also had a construction company on my days off, (building houses and remodeling). I have many interests. I like music. I�ve played guitar since I was 12 years old. Some of my favorite players are Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan (Rave On Stevie!), Sonny Landreth, Johnny A, Joe Bonamassa, Leo Kottke, Mark Knopfler, Tommy Bolin, Tommy Emmanuel, Jeff Beck, and many others. I like hot rods, muscle cars, boats/fishing, and airplanes. I like to read, (true stories and history). I love dogs and dogs love me! I like to write. I wrote an article a month for two years for a specialty magazine and have been published other places as well. I'd like to talk to women. Of course we can discuss our special situations that many others don't understand, but I don't want to focus on that alone. Ultimately, I�m looking for a lady who is comfortable in blue jeans or a dress. She has a sense of humor (preferably a wacky one haha). She doesn�t smoke, and if she drinks, it is occasionally or socially. I want a good companion who enjoys talking openly, but also likes quiet time to read, watch TV, etc. I've had a colostomy since June of 2015. That's enough yapping from me. I would love to hear about you.
