    "Old & decrepid? Not me! "

    I'm proud of my Devonshire origins and have a family history going back to the 1600's. I am an authority on the nature of true clotted cream compared to the insipid varieties passing as such in today's market places with the result that I was once asked to leave a Restaurant where I had cast doubt on the validity of its claim to serve the best clotted cream available!

    I suppose I should have retired but am convinced that an active brain aids longevity so have continued part-time work with a wide variety of printing projects. I am still making metal plaques for a variety of purposes and enjoy designing these for both private and business purposes. I keep pretty busy generally but lack someone (hopefully a bit younger and still active) to share things with and inspire my current and future interests . . . .

    Because I am interested in people hopefully I believe I could be interesting to others. I have a very varied background with a wide range of experience in many fields. Currently I am pursuing my interests in Drama (active on the amateur stage for over 40 years), Aviation (ex-RAF), Canals, Travel, Writing, Family History and Bell-ringing. In particular, before my move South I used to love walking along the Kennet & Avon canal's towpath and talking to the people on the boats that were moored there; sadly I do miss the canal but have now substituted this with more pertinent local interests. Having met such a tremendous variety of personalities in my past, I am hopeful that in my new location such opportunities will continue to arise. I already have a yearly ticket to the Portsmouth dockyards and the Roman Palace at Fishbourne for example and have recently had the pleasure of taking two groups of visitors on tours there. In my travels I am not one to sit on a beach but would much rather explore the unusual attributes of a new locality and its customs and take in sites of particular historic value. I enjoy cruises, amongst which was one to the Baltic where I was able to entertain my youngest son, who lives in Finland, when we docked at Helsinki en route.

    Most people I meet for the first time underestimate my true age and I hope to meet someone with a similarly young outlook on life. ..OL
