I am committed to the Gospel, that's #1.
I am an Alaskan. I like to hunt and fish for food use as well for the enjoyment of it. I like the idea of growing food as well, but it's more theory than practice. I grew one tomato the size of my thumb this year. I enjoy most other outdoor activities.
I do a welding/fabricating and related marine work, with some construction experience as well.
I have a real taste for musicals, opera and other related things. I love music, I play the string bass, sing in both choirs and solo stuff, and love the organ.
Politically, I am conservative. I believe that individual liberty is essential and that the choice to do good must be a just that, a choice.
Let me give you some pros and cons. I'll start with some possible cons.
I am not fashionable, it's just not something I think alot about, flannel shirt and carrharts do the job for me most of the time, if you like a man who keeps up on the latest, I'm probably not him.
I'm not a socialite. I could speak in front of thousands and do OK, and I thrive on intimate conversation, but I am not especially stunning in chatting and socializing with crowds of people I don't know. I would like to be better at this, and I am better than in previous years, but still I am not the one that crowds love to flock around.
I'm short. It might be kind of cool to be 6'5" but that just didn't happen this go around, maybe in the resurrection?
Now, on the plus side.
I am deeply committed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and his church. I don't just go every Sunday, I am always striving to be obedient to the impressions of the Holy Ghost, and I am slowly getting better at it with time.
I value my relationships very highly. I love to understand what your thinking and feeling and to be understood as well. The person to person exchange of thoughts and ideas is very important to me.
I have a lot of useful skills. I can keep a house in repair, use all sorts of tools, build most things, and weld almost anything. I chop the wood, haul the trash, and even have a couple culinary specialties like grilling up a excellent steak and baking sourdough bread.
