61, New Waverly, TX
Im one part Ricky Gervais, one part Jon Stewart, and a soupcon of Fred Flintstone.
Last summer, I went surfing at Padre Island nearly every day with my dog Skipper. It was a fascinating biological experiment. I found out just how much salt water my stomach holds.
A few things about me: I don't believe laundry is a collectable item....it's meant to be washed. My bathroom is clean...no science projects to avoid. Pets like me. Next to kids, I firmly think pets have a true sense of trustworthy people. The IRS doesn't have me on their speed dial. My priest signs me up for projects without asking me first.
I'm a fair cook, a good listener and a great friend. At my last physical, the doc said I'd live to be 100. He then handed me a fortune cookie and asked me to pay on the way out.
The last fight I was in was a boxing match in the Navy. I lasted till the 2nd round. I've been playing golf and basketball since.
I'm very resourceful and creative. I love to take a design, turn it into a project and build it through completion. Retirement should be all the fun we've dreamed about doing when we were young and working.
My retirement looks like a beach house with a topless jeep parked next to the sailboat and the daily attire includes shorts and flip-flops. For special occasions I'll wear a shirt and a belt.
