I'm 5'11", not 5'1". Cancer-free 3 years on, and lovin' life. I was struck with brain cancer and had the tumor removed in 2011. Physically and mentally I've bounced back! I've learnt to let the small stuff go, and take each day as it comes.... appreciate the silliest things, value friendships, I've no time for gay drama.
UPDATE: 8/7/2017, After being cancer-free since 2011, I had my first seizure in 6 years a year ago to the day. I'm currently in Seattle that Seattle Proton Center undergoing Proton Therapy. For those who don't know, proton therapy is a radical new form of radiation that focuses the radiation beam on the tumour with laser-like precision. The radiation does not go any further than the tumour, and unlike conventional radiation, does not damage any other tissue, reducing the chance for further cognitive damage. I'm doing chemotherapy concurrently (oral). Temozolomide. Yes, all my hair on my head is mostly gone, except for some patchy growth, so I shaved it all off when I manscaped Saturday.... It'll come back, and that's a small price to pay to have my health. I hope none of you who read this have to go through this. Fortunately, I am in good physical shape, so my side-effects have been minimized, and I've been active and still can work out, crossfit, etc... I paddle-board every weekend on all the lakes around the Seattle Metro area, and Bainbridge Island. Just trying to keep weight on, as my appetite does not exist. Down about 10 lbs, trying to maintain, and not looking to bulk. FUCK CANCER!!
If you've read this far....
10/2/13: Licensed California State realtor here. Love looking at real estate, showing, and meeting people. Hit me up if you're looking to lease, buy, or rent in the S. California Market... or any state in the US. My brokerage firm has offices in all 50 states. :)
August, 2013, hiked the Grand Canyon, Rim to Rim to Rim (48 miles) in 18 hours... I beat my former time of 18hours, and 58 minutes. I know, it's the small victories, right?!
Where did my profile name come from? I grew up on a family wheat and cattle ranch in the northwest... Sadly, I miss it, but reality says I keep my great city career which I love. Overall, I'm a happy - go - lucky fella. Love animals, and dogs. I dont have either right now.
I like good conversation, good food, cafe' au laits, beignets, The New York Times crossword puzzle, Fahreed Zakaria, muscles, intelligence, good manners, prossecco, Alsacan wines and foods, OKTOBERFEST, my two nieces, three nephews, the ranch, horses, combines, fishing, biceps, football, kissing, swimming, camping, biking. I was a recreational pilot before I became ill. Lost my license, (FAA doesn't like licensees having seizures whilst flying). Not sure I have the desire or $$ to get back into flying. Maybe someday. :)
Yes, I'm not the brightest guy in the room any more, but I've forgotten more than most people ever learn. I am learning to accept my deficits (although I'll never freely admit to it), and right now I take each new day as a gift, because that's what it is. There's always someone out there that has it worse than I do. FIGHT!
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people with forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel ~Maya Angelou
Guys I'm Looking To Meet
The guys I like to hang out with are usually buff/athletic/muscular. A killer smile and defined arms usually get my attention. Into men who take care of themselves, respect their bodies, act like men, and don't abuse their bodies.... Guys with strong senses of self are extremely attractive. I don't have any tattoo's, but think that they are sexy... Ideally, a strong friendship is most important. I can be a good friend. Be honest, have integrity, check the attitude at the door, and we'll get on fine.
PLEASE READ: Lately I've been receiving a lot of messages from Eastern European guys asking me to email them privately on personal email addresses. I would like them to stop, please. I don't want to skype or email separately of this site to guys I'm just meeting, and don't even have photos of. Those are the guys I'm NOT looking to meet. Unfortunately, they are not the ones who will read this far....
