Date men from United States / Alabama / Smiths Station, 70 year old

Date a man from Smiths Station, United States. I am a widower that was married to my wonderful wife for 44 years. I have been widowed for 5 years. I am a very healthy 68 years old that travels a great deal. I had a very successful business career in animal health and the lumber industries. I retired at 49 years ( following the college graduation of our youngest child). Built 4 houses for the fun of it and stated a hobby business that became quite successful. I restored old classic movies and released them on video (LaserDisc and DVD)- I sold this business - due to my wife's illness. And retired again.
I spend most of my time at my Alabama lake cabin on the Chattahooche River. It's beautiful but can be lonely - so I travel with my 11 year old, one-eyed yellow lab.
I love to cook for my guests. And dine on my boat house.
I am a collector. I collect old movies, old comics, electric trans, old time radio and art.
I have 3 children that have given me 5 wonderful grand children. I'm a 2 drink occassional drinker that does love Bailey's in his coffe.
I have good teeth, all my hair and am healthier than most men 10 years younger - my doctors' opinions. And more active. I swim in the lake (Lake Harding) and hike in the mountains at my SC mountain house.
Speaking of my travels - my dog and I have put 114,000 miles on a new car in 29 months. I love to go and visit.
