Birthday  Profile Alert - This member has a birthday coming up on 5/12! (Send a Card)


I'm Charles “Charlie” Nelson, DWM, 62 years young, 5'11”, 180 lbs, brown/gray hair, hazel eyes, semi-retired/close to retirement laborer.

Why am I here? I was working out of state on a long-term project and decided to rent my place out for a year. My renter was selling meth out of my property. They got caught and the police got them to say I knew what they were doing so they could seize my property. I fought that, so they charged me criminally. I had a record from over 20 years ago, so I lost. Along with a bad attorney, now I got something else going. I cashed out some retirement and have an appeal going with a new, better attorney, and hope to get out sooner than 2020. Enough on that for now. Looking for pen-pals and seeing where it goes. I'm still in good health, I eat right, and I like to garden my own food, and I exercise daily. I love being outdoors, camping with comforts, fishing, and the only hunting I do is for mushrooms.

I'm an animal lover, non-violent, and easy going and hopefully, you are also. I'm a good listener and will answer any and all questions.

(Please do not use return address sticky labels as my facility will remove that prior to giving us our mail and I won't be able to write you back!)
