Why did you join Friends First Social Group?

If you are like I was then you are probably tired of sitting home alone vegetating. I searched the internet and am both fortunate and thankful to to have found Friends First. I cannot even begin to tell you of all the warm friends and positive therapy I've found here. Great opportunity to get out of the house, break the lonliness - self defeating negativity and make some new connections. Time to start enjoying life again for all of us !

What is your status? Chose One: Single-never married, Seperated/Divorcing, Single-Divorced, Widowed, Commited Couple, Married

Commited relationship with Marybeth, the greatest lady on earth !

How would you describe your personality type? Choose from: FUN, Extrovert, Never Met A Stranger, Somewhere In The Middle, Quiet, Shy, Introvert, Laid Back, Wild and Crazy.

Fun loving extrovert - Crazy and Shy at the same time but nobody agrees with the Shy part - I can sometimes be laid back but if I am you might wanna check my pulse.

So what do you think that your biggest personality asset is?

HONESTY. I'm not afraid of putting my thoughts, experiences and feelings on the line, especially if my journey can help others. I am loyal to those that play by the golden rule. I am a 50s - 60s kid so I can be black and white but I also know, especially these days, that technicolor really exists.

What do you enjoy doing the most in life ? Hobbies? Work? Tell us!

I love kids and have been blessed with 2 great kids, a daughter and a son. It's much different since they are grown adults but I do relish every minute we spend together. I love cooking and entertaining - It's not always gourmet but I'm working on that. Comfort foods & BBQ are a regular year round. Need being outside doing most anything the good weather will allow because we're locked up all winter. I am an antique/collector car enthusiast so I love anything car related - advertising - toys - anything. I can often be found at cruise night car shows, toy shows or digging through parts at car swap meets or the Sunday flea markets. I enjoy summer sports but not to the point of injury. I look forward to riding my bike more often as the good weather breaks again. I am a kitchen, bathroom and home remodeling contractor - handyman and have dabbled in many other areas as a side line buying/selling everyday cars, collector cars, parts and old toys for as long as I can remember.
