is Johnny Gregory.
I say about myself? Well, I guess I will start by saying I was born in London, England
and lived there for most of my life. But I have also lived in Cambridgeshire and in Cornwall,
both counties in England.
I am not
married, but I was for a short time. (A long and strange story) I have no children but I do love kids. I get along fine with
children of all ages. There are children that live near me that come and ask me to play with them sometimes and I do when
I have time. Sometimes just to kick a ball around or throw a Frisbee.
I now live
in Australia since 1997 after living in New Zealand from 1989.
I had my
own business as a painter and decorator. I had four employees but due to an accident I had to sell the business.
I had a pretty happy childhood even though my parents were poor. I did not have much schooling (just about six years of schooling
between the ages of ten and sixteen), but I do consider myself as fortunate that I have taught myself most things.
the things I like to do. I love surfing. I go surfing whenever I can find the time to do so. This is pretty often as I live
just 15 minutes from the sea. Naturally, because of this, I also like swimming. I enjoy walking but not hiking. I love to
stroll along the beach or walk along the cliff-tops just enjoying the beauty around me. I like peace and solitude at times
and this gives me the opportunity to unwind.
I also like
driving and will often just get in my car and drive. When I do this, I do not have a plan in mind of where I will go. I like
to take roads that I have never been along and see where I will end up. If I am too far from home to return that day, then
I will stay at a motel or hotel and return the following day. At these times, I usually find the time to think over any problems
I may have and often find that I can solve the problems when I return.
I am a loner
by choice, but I make friends easily. I find I can talk to most people at any time and leave as friends. I just do not wish
to have “close” friends of my own sex. I decided to be a loner when I was a teenager because I did not wish to
go along with the crowd. I felt I was losing my individuality by allowing myself to be influenced by my peers.
writing is another pleasure I enjoy. I love writing poetry; most of these are of the romantic kind as I am a romantic myself.
I do write other kinds as well but not so often. I also love to write short stories with a twist at the end. I have several
novels in the process of being written. These are mainly sci-fi but I do have a romance in the making.
I like most
kinds of music except heavy metal and rap. My preference is soft and soothing laid back music. I do like soft rock and I also
like rock and roll. Some classics I like but not all that many.
do not like. Hmmm. This is difficult! There is not much that I don’t like. I do not like treading on something that
should definitely not be on the pavement or sidewalk! I do not like arrogant people or those that cannot admit to their own
I do not
like the way many countries are at war and the innocent are suffering as a result. I do not like the way the environment is
being destroyed by greed. I do believe that there is no need for the destruction of our earth and we can all live without
the harmful affects of some of the technologies that are being used today. I am not an active environmentalist though. I do
not believe that groups of individuals can halt the governments of the world in their greed for land, and the resources of
I smoke! Yes, I know. I’ve heard all about the dangers to health. However, I do not drink. Or rather, I am not a habitual
drinker. I will partake in a beer now and then or a glass of wine.
I am also
a flirt! Harmless but fun. I also like having women flirt with me.
