I like my muscle car, my Harley, doing things outside when weather permits. Have been a heavy duty large and small diesel engine builder most of my mechanical career. I have lived and worked in other states and have traveled all over the south west and have been to Mexico many times. The west coast was nice, alot of people. The drive from Baja Mexico all the way up Cali on the Pacific Coast Hwy was the most beautifull drive. Many desert sun rises and sunsets were the best. Up north , the northern lights will dance all nite sometimes. All I need is a Power ball win and travel I will. Born up north, spent time down south and now back north. I like seeing movies at home or out. Doing whatever the weather permits. Quiet meals to going out on the town. I guess I am just a normal guy . I do watch some tv and getting out is just as fun as maybe staying in .I ride my Harley as much as I can. Love the sights and smells as you ride. Have gotten caught in the rain a few times but hey, it is just water ! Car shows and cruises don't happen alot here but I take my car to the ones that are. I have other interests that got put on hold lately but this coming summer I will get going with those again. You have to make you own fun alot of times in a small town. Came home after my father died to help out my Mom. So I guess I am just a guy next door. Very handy wih my hands. Jack of all trades, master of most. Lots of street smarts and some from the books. So how does one REALLY describe who they are? Not complicated, easy going untill one has to push, Listen to what is said not why, intelligent enough to get in trouble but that was because I thought about it too much. Hard to say ...

After going through an ordeal of cancer twice I find myself treated differently now. No one wants to take the chance to be with me because of my past health. They don't want to invest their feelings and time with "some one like me." Can you blame them ? Hmmmmm..... it is a big step for alot of people I have found out. I find with things as they are you have to look else where for a group that has been down that path. Most don't and can't fathom the scale of what I have had to endure just to be sitting in front of them at that moment. A very much stronger person I am , yes, most definitely I am. So here I am.
