     You Are The Man Retireing, fighting my current addiction to NTWS.   Feeling sorry for myself for ever being USN Retired.  Following my favorite baseball team "ATLANTA BRAVES".   I have a chemistry background and one of the things I enjoy the most is turning beer, vodka and wine into urine.  Watching my belly and my butt getting bigger and bigger with every passing year.

I hate mowing grass, SmileyCentral.comwatching TV, unless its a good movie on DVD, or a ball game
and doing anything that requires physical or mental strain.
I enjoy discussing politics, money I don't have and sex.  Remenicing and telling sea stories about when I was in the Navy. SmileyCentral.com

A good laugh, at a joke, along with my coffee, in the morning, makes me feel good all day.

WELCOME,
While you are checking out my profile, please check to see if I listed you as a shipmate.  My only criterria to be my shipmate is that we have something in common, so if we do, it goes both ways so please select me back and add me to your shipmates.

Feel free to look at anything on my profile.  I appreciate any messages I get but don't feel that you are obligated to leave one.  At my age stalkers are welcome.  All I ask is that you put everything back were you found it.  Have a nice day and come back anytime.

       MEMORIES NEVER GO AWAY, 
       OLD SAILORS NEVER DIE -
       THEY JUST FADE AWAY!"
