Those who find beauty in all of nature will find themselves at one with the secrets of life itself - L Gilbert
Just looking for friends initially I think only fools rush in. Nothing starts from nothing. So come and say hello & tell me a little about you. (Not a paid up member so cannot instigate messages for now but can reply)
Originally from London/Essex area recently moved to the countryside in East Midlands near Spalding UK. Though it’s somewhat flat here and very few decent walks unless you drive first, which kinda defeats the object in my world! So, maybe looking to move back South to this area.
Very practical and I have all the answers, if I don't, then I know a man who does (humour me, yes dear!) Cars. DIY, PCs etc. Shelves that list slightly to starboard are artistic rustic not botched! tsk:)
Seek just an honest, sincere friend/companion initially to talk, walk, drive, cycle and visit big old country houses, churches, villages, castles, museums, coast, countryside, motor sports, country pub lunch, laugh, joke, play silly games and have fun. Love walking and being outside. Love visiting English Heritage and National Trust properties and staying in quaint B&Bs or cottages and journeys in my campervan. Would love to set some challenges like walking Hadrian's Wall, Coast to Coast, Pilgrim's Way etc. Do a serious WW1 and WW2 research trip around Europe etc. I like to pick people up, dust them down, and see them on their way. Be nice to find someone to do that for me now and again :) Don't worry I don't want your body, well not yet anyway! I might need one of your kidneys though so form an orderly queue please.
Looking for one special person rather than lots of friends, so, not into serial dating I'm afraid and no workaholics.
No one whose best friend comes in a bottle, or who drinks wine from a bucket and thinks wine has replaced tea! When they say it’s good for you, they mean a glass a day not a bottle! Drinking a bottle of wine alone at home each night is NOT social drinking so quit telling fibs you lot! Also no f.a.g ash lils, or anyone who doesn't care about themselves, or anyone or anything else. This includes each other, animals and our beautiful planet.
If you are loud, common, swear like a trooper, sex mad, nudist weirdo, swinger, take drugs or wanna look like Popeye I just aint your man! You need to get out and smell the flowers for your highs. However, I would be happy to try and save you :) The only swinging I do is from the trees!
Love a nice country pub. Love cinema and would like to get to know the theatre too. Once saw D ick Whittington with my son and it was way cool, but never quite got to see any more.
Love kids especially the little cootchy, cootchy ones. Just became a grandpappy too, but they are only young so it will be a few years yet before I take them on grand adventures off the beaten track.
Great getaways would be by car with the top down, motorcycle with a bedroll and a whole new world of Highways to explore all over Europe and the UK, boat, camper, caravan, canoe from the start of the river to the end, hoping we don't meet any dueling banjos along the way, in no particular order, or hell we could try them all, for a week, year, forever. No beach bums or flying, unless its my own plane (as if!)
Great fun is anything with an engine, quads, jet skis, scooters etc. Sunbathing and sitting still on holiday is for mugs and lardies. That's not to say I am a super sport, just like doing things. I now have kidney disease since 1993 and am pre transplant/Dialysis at this stage, so the slippery slope just got more slippery which results in chronic fatigue mainly so I have slowed down a fair bit and not even sure I could still live up to some of my dreams & ambitions but what the heck I still give it a go. It's OK cos it will give you time to catch up anyway. Live one day at a time and leave the future to God :)
Nice adventure would be to walk The Pilgrims Way (yeah I know I am a parrot) Hadrian's Wall. Maybe canoe down, or is it up! The Thames to the source or cruise all the Canals of UK/Europe, oh wait AND around Britain's Coast. yeah that would be lovely jubbly.
Very much in to human and animal rights. Not just in spirit but in person too, so if you do not care about yourself, your life or your diet then we will not get on.
Hate cruelty and injustice, such a beautiful world why spoil it? The best things in life really are free and to love costs nothing. Love to talk, explore, learn and see how and what makes things tick, especially women. Though I doubt that's possible. I'm keen to discover which part of Venus you come from?
I am vegan with a great love for ALL of God's creation. I do not smoke, and I try to eat properly. I am a naturally thoughtful, caring and loving person and I do believe it's in the giving that we receive (an INFJ to those who know that stuff) though if something is worth saying, or something needs defending I'll always be the daddy! I cannot just stand by and let bad things happen to others or myself. I hate bullies with a passion. Just got rid of a canvas print business which I did part time and it was great, but too much alone. I re-publish out of print books. I'd also like to sell at boot sales and craft fayres, the prints would go down a storm and little bits n pieces I had previously rummaged for in ye olde shoppes n stuff :) Be great doing this in a camper cos I could have a siesta whilst you did all the work. I will wake in time to count the takings of course before you start all this two for me, one for him malarky!
GRUMPY OLD MAN SECTION -If you have NO picture, or unless you have a really good excuse and a written letter from your mother then no play with me. It's unfair! A picture paints a thousand words, so imagine the wristwork you would save! Oh and NO winks, flirts, kisses or any other lazy feeble efforts please, I want you throwing yourself at me.
So if you are not prepared to put a little effort in to emails or your profile then don't bother. I'm here to find a proper partner, not once a week email buddies, If you're too busy or lazy to write then I aint your man. If you’re the sort who ignores contacts from other people I aint your man.
Guess that covers it for now. Come and say hello cos I really don't bite even though I might show my teeth, except by special request. If you don't, how on earth will I ever know you exist? Oh and please, no gold diggers or scammers I am a bit too smart for the likes of you. Remember God hears all and see's all.
Cheeky chappy loves to laugh, some good ole banter and make people happy.
So, you can go 50/50, phone a friend. Deal or no deal? Just friends initially and no strings. I don't want your body or your money. Yet! Just imagine we’re at a bus stop having a natter, that should remove any complications in introductions.
Eclectic taste in music. From Elvis to Horowitz, Dylan to Cash, Adele to Bassey, Motown to Rockabilly, Brahms to Sex Pistols. Love to read and my current favs are *The Sound of a wild snail eating* and *Into the wild*. Same with films, I love all sorts. Green Mile, Into the wild, Somewhere in time, anything with John Candy, all the vacation movies, One flew over the cuckoos nest. Like documentaries, nature and history programs. Current affairs though it's getting hard to find any honest news any more certainly here in the UK! Like to read, Thoreau, Tolstoy, The Bible, Non fiction, The Beano, Kahlil Gibran, Richard Rohr and the great philosophers.
Well that's enough rabbit for now from me. If you want to meet someone interesting who will make you laugh, cry, smile, grimace & feel good then hit that send button. Failing that you losers, I wish you well :)
Museum, park, castle, grand ole country house, boat ride or just a walk n talk :)
Description of ideal friend or partner?
She would be a sweet,nice, considerate,thoughtful gal who still has the child in her and loves to play, loves kids and has a great sense of humour (she'll need it!). That's not to say I would not consider any of you other riff raff :)
As I went walking I saw a sign there
And on the sign it said
But on the other side it didn't say nothing,
That side was made for you and me. Woody Guthrie.
“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”(Oscar Wilde)
Have you seen the film *Somewhere In Time* with Christopher Reeves? A truly beautiful film, and an awesome soundtrack by John Barry. It evokes such dreamy passions. My fav film I think, and one I can really relate to.
