driving on empty roads, follow hastings united fc -funny, i know - nosing around eastern europe, i want to do the middle aged bloke thing, get a motor bike next summer, i dream about wrecking the ozone layer at 10mpg in an old cadillac, trying to get gdff to print this how i actually write it instead of total bollox, the odd beer though well out of practice after sleepwalking drunk'n naked out of my flat one night....

Want to visit:
so much to see on the doorstep - had a look round the north east recently, want to do eastern europe as well, if i could kill my fear of flying i'd have to see the states
gdff always manage to cock this bit up too, lived in japan as a kid i can still count to 2 in japanese, various western european places, east berlin pre wall back in 86 plus several post wall visits walking through the brandenburg gate felt good after the wall had gone, became a zloty millionaire in 93 when i had a nose round poland, been to amsterdam loads of times, i have all the time in the world for the dutch
alice cooper, deep purple, saxon, like a bit of classical, recently found beck my intro to indie, old rock stuff like led zep, family etc etc - robert plant solo is superb, recently into german crash bang wallop stuff like rammstein, more recently eisbrecher
usual suspects - rugby, cricket rather depressing of late, as for those overpaid underperforming over hyped footballers - indoor sports in my den are good preferably not on my own....
Rant time already! I won't boil kids or pets if I don't interest you, I can live with that, BUT if I take time to write a well mannered unpervesque hallomail then you can take time to answer it - if only to say I'm not for you. Ta.
Right then! Very left wing, 52, ok for my age- get away with mid late 40s. Tall at 6.4 and working hard to move 2 stone which my height helps hide-but no excuses,they have to go. Out'n about the hills of Hastings most days walking it off.
And if Annie, at the surgery, told me crates of Krankenburg Triple X followed by two greasy kebabs AND 4 hours a day working out on the tv remote was good for me-plus Dutch handrolling bacca-"Gimme Gimme"! Still miss those rollies after 18 years.
Divorced since 97-young uns (8 & 6 at the time) stayed with me and till 04 we had au pairs to get through the single dad years (no I didn't). Lovely lasses all of em - keep in touch with several and some have been back to see us.
Been nosing around the Net a year or so - hmmm, it's a different world from pouring pints down the neck in a 70s or 80s smokey boozer before making that first, gibberish filled, lager fueled move.
I like the domestic set up with my kids even if I did end up with the smallest room (khazzy excepted). Won't get married again but discount nothing, people chemistry eh!!
Kids are the most important people on sites like this and they often decide what goes - but why shouldn't us dads and mums get together?
No baggage from my big split-get on well with my ex and her hubby-kids are used to things as they are and that includes the old fella tapping around on the Net.
Unconventional, casual attitude to attire (Did wear a tie in 01 for an interview) and don't own a suit. Work weird, WEIRD hours on the railway-24/7/365. I'm a signalman.
Pet hates-er, lots! Here's a few - "Somewhere hot" holidays, speed cameras, Hastings parking ticketfuhrers, politicians and AND those unanswered emails.
