I love to laugh, and I love people that laugh with me, but I do take life seriously. I am a 'man's man', but there is a compassionate, tender side of me. I am refined, but there is a definite edge there. I can tie my own neck tie, but I hate wearing them. I swallow life up in big gulps and I'm typically attracted to the same outlook in others. I try to listen more than I talk .... I find you learn more that way. I never 'go with the flow' just for the sake of doing so. I have my standards and convictions and I stand by them. I know what I like and will not be swayed by the latest trend, whether it be fashion or behavior. I love God, I love our country, I love the concept of 'family', and I love the human spirit. I believe there's a time to lead, and a time to follow. I really dig the outdoors, reading a good book, watching a great movie, working out, and creating things. I know how to build and fix just about anything around the house simply because it interests me to do so. I guess you could say I'm pretty normal, just far from average.
In love, I've learned that sometimes persistence pays, but being someone's fool never does.
So, there ya have me...
