JohnE Male (72) from Flintshire

Pretty ordinary really,I'm retired,And coming up to 70 I Dont feel it though,I've recently given up smoking which I never thought I could do,I was a lorry driver for more years than I care to remember,A mild heart attack put paid to that,I used to do all over the uk,and Europe,And not really wanting to be on a plane for more t tend not to bother with Holidays.
I am a bookworm I will read anything,Although Rebus,Banks,Colborn type stories are ones I enjoy most,I haven't had a tv fot 7 years out of choice,But do watch a bit online,Mainly documentaries,I love gardening,and look after the plants down a local pub where I run a quiz once a week the only time I go to a pub now, I do like my John Smiths from a can indoors,My music tastes are pretty wide,But 60s and 70s in particular.
I'm not really sure what I'm looking for,Friendship mainly I suppose,But if the right person came along who knows
