What is your chief characteristic?
I would like to think that I have a good attitude about life and an adventurous spirit.
What do you appreciate most about your friends?
I have been blessed with friends that are fun, honest and loyal. Each has something special about themselves that I appreciate.
Who is your favorite hero in fiction?
Yosemite Sam—Bugs always gets the best of him but he keeps trying. One of these days he’s going to get that varmint.
Who is your favorite heroine in fiction?
Holly Golightly. The visions of Manhattan made me dream of living there. When I came of age, I did, and in 15 years of living there I met many Hollys.
What is the best thing you have ever won?
I don’t remember ever winning anything of value. I am saving up for the big one…the lottery.
What did your mother always tell you?
“If you do that again, I am going to tan your hide.” Still haven’t learned.
What is the worst idea you’ve ever had?
I grew up on a farm and once I tried to un-jam a soybean combine while it was running. I slipped and fell through the rotating header, and slid completely through all the moving parts, barely missing the auger and cutting bar. I landed on the ground in front of the combine and stood up without a scratch. God was looking out for me that day.
What is your favorite food?
I love a perfectly grilled ribeye steak.
Which talent would you most like to have?
A rock singer, of course.
What movie do you love to watch repeatedly?
“The African Queen”—I’ve always had a place in my heart for Katharine Hepburn.
What was your most embarrassing moment?
Like I would tell you. It was embarrassing enough the first time around.
What historical figure do you despise the most?
I don’t despise anyone. There have been evil people throughout history. Despising them doesn’t do any good. Overcome and move on. Mankind has always been able to do that.
What TV show is your guilty pleasure?
“Curb Your Enthusiasm.” I record it to watch anytime I like.
What is the last book you read?
“Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time” by my good friend, David Goodwillie
What is your theme song?
“Car Wheels on a Gravel Road” by Lucinda Williams. Just the name has a sound of adventure to it.
