In His Own Words

About him

Married for 31 years, have been a widower for 12 years.
Three daughters grown and flown, four grandchidren. Living alone in an echoing period cottage - no pets now basically a cat person but used to have a family dog.
Hobbies - reading (cottage full of books), TV mainly documentaries, cinema, computer, theatre, classical music but also like Eagles, 10 cc, Stones,Pink Floyd.
Like retro HiFi vinyl records, 40Watt amplifier and huge Wharfedale speakers in my lounge. Digital radio set up in every room now pretty much and its on all day!
I collect militaria , vintage cameras and microscopes, porcelain and politically incorrect items.
Slightly eccentric frequently do target shooting in the garden
I have changed out my SQ2 now for a much quieter Mercedes saloon which is a bit more suited to an old geezer!
I have also recently grown a beard to cope with the coming cold winter.
Retired but still do a bit of ad hoc consultancy - used to be a pipeline engineer working overseas.
Like experimental cookery, Not a fan of "wokery" or political correctness.
I have just made 80 - see photo taken at my celebration barbecue, where my granddaughters made me wear that sash!

About his ideal match

Looking for a "partner in crime" for pub lunches, cinema visits, days out, car boot sales/antique shops.
Non smoker, moderate drinker.
Maybe later to work on my "bucket list"with me to visit New York, Hong Kong, Route 66, Australia (to visit youngest daughter). China, ! Japan.
Or just go to Silloth for a low key restful holiday.
I am not into football or other sports
Please no Extinction Rebellion green or "Just Stop Oil" people, cutting carbon will have no effect whatsoever; global warming is a natural cycle - we are coming out of an ice age!
