What is your favorite outdoor activity?

A morning stroll (knapsack on my back) after breakfast to a secluded area where I can rest the day away with a great novel under the shade of a majestic oak, pitch a tent/awning for a nap, to awaken for a sandwich and drink only to complete the first novel and start the second. After finishing the second novel and starting a small fire for warmth, friends suddenly appear and bring drinks and a small meal which upon completion we douse the fire and enjoy the stars with the telescopes they have brought to the site until well into the night.

In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?

I hate being a passenger, most of the time.

If you could have three wishes granted for you alone, what would they be?

  • My retirement home completed…
  • My family moving closer for visits on weekends…
  • The weather becoming a permanent 75-80 degrees with showers only at night…

What would constitute a “perfect” day for you?

Meals out, a short day-trip to a local historical site, two new best-sellers to read for the evening, and an additional hour to play fetch with my roommate (my coal-black, nine-year-old Shih Tzu) before bed.

Complete this sentence: My favorite place in the whole world…..

My favorite place in the whole world is home.

Who was your best friend in elementary school (prior to age 12)?

At 12, I was a canary living-it-up in a tropical forest. I do not think I had any ‘best friends’.  (I had just started to enjoy the world of music, drama, and performance with a local high school. I was a sometimes=beloved’ little brother. Everyone was too old for friendship.)

When you leave a room, do you turn the lights off behind you or keep the lights on throughout your house most of the time?

When I leave a room, the lights usually stay on… (Yeah, not very ecologically friendly.) But then my travel to-and-from us usually only includes two rooms.

What do you feel is the most enjoyable way to spend $500?

  • A vacation?
  • A night on the town?
  • Take family to a grand meal?
  • Pay someone to do my chores?

With $500, the world is my oyster!

Complete this sentence: My favorite thing to do on my cell phone is…

My favorite thing (actually, the only thing) to do on my cell phone is to press the ‘talk’ button when I text. I hate texting otherwise.

If you had to have your vision corrected would you rather: glasses or contacts? Or what do you use if you need to have your vision corrected?

I think that I would choose option #3: laser surgery. I have worn glasses since seventh grade. I cannot stand the thought of touching my eyeball, so wearing contact lenses is out of the question. Laser surgery seems to be a new hope on the horizon.

Are you more of a dog person or a cat person?

I love both! At the present, I am a dog person. But I can easily see me adopting a cat in the near future.

If you were to buy a new house/apartment what is the top three items on your wish list?

  • Surrounded and isolated by a forest
  • An indoor tennis court, basketball court, and pool
  • A tower for an observatory for my telescope

When dreaming… dream big!
