When writing by hand do you prefer to use a pencil or pen?

I HATE PENCILS!

Would you rather be an amazing dancer or an amazing singer?

No one would ever want to see me dance!

If you were on a debate team, what subject would you relish debating?

Standardized testing in schools. Should students have to wait to test-out-of grade level classes, or should each student be able to test-and-advance at their own individualized pace?

What are you a “natural” at doing?

Organizing to procrastinate

Have you ever participated in a distance walking, swimming, running, or biking event? Tell your story.

  • I high school, I was a rabbit. I was rather fast, but not the fastest. I loved the sprints. I became the rabbit for our distance runners. They would run all the laps for a mile and the two-mile, I would only run timed-pace-laps for them.
  • In Boy Scouts and as a mentor, I have been on 50-mile bike rides. I was young, then. I thought they were a breeze.
  • Swimming… I swim like a rock. It’s not happening. (I do love to propel with my large flippers underwater and ride the waves in at a beach.
  • Distance Walking- that is what I have begun to explore. The 5K.

Name one thing not many people know about you.

  • Life is mostly an open book… although, most of the people I am now around do not know how much I loved to sing when I was younger.

What is your favorite flower?

  • Roses

  • What’s something you like to do the old-fashioned way?
  • What’s your favorite genre of book or movie?
  • How often do you people watch?
  • What have you only recently formed an opinion about?



What’s something you like to do the old-fashioned way?

I prefer the touch and smell of books. I have Kindles and other modern reading apparatuses, but they just do not allow me to become enveloped in a masterfully told story.

What’s your favorite genre of book or movie?

Who-Done-It books… Hands down. I love a great mystery. A great mystery placed inside a historical setting… even better!

How often do you people watch?

I am always watching people.

What have you only recently formed an opinion about?

There are just too many ways to go in the answering of this question… and none of them led to peace and tranquility. I am leaving this one alone.

  • Does your first or middle name have any significance (or were you named after another family member)?
  • Music or silence while working?
  • If you had a special place for your three most special possessions (not including photos, electronics, people or animals), what would they be?
  • The Never List: What are things you know you never will do?


Does your first or middle name have any significance (or were you named after another family member)?

My first name was selected because my mother wanted a name that no one in our family had EVER been named. She also wanted a name that could not have a nickname.

Mom was successful with the first… Roger. She was not very successful with the second… I have been know as Hollywood (I loved sunglasses ALL the time.), Canary Legs (Very skinny legs as a teen, but I could fly.), and Lee (my middle name).

Music or silence while working?

  • If I am doing chores, I love music!
  • If I am writing, I like the silence.
  • If I am studying, I am compelled to listen to classical music or big band/ swing/ jazz.

If you had a special place for your three most special possessions (not including photos, electronics, people or animals), what would they be?

I am not sure what I would classify as my three most special possessions would be at this point in time. If I went all mushy, I am sure they would have to do with family. But, with family, I have little as far as tokens of remembrance. I have many vivid memories, but not the kind of things one would put on a shelf.

If I said one of my most special possessions happened to be my computer… I would be seen as very geeky and very impersonal. I don’t think that those to words fit me, so I will stay away from the computer.

If I said that my most special possession was my twelve-string guitar. Friends would ask me, “If it so special to you, why are you never playing it?”

So…. I will leave this question unanswered.

The Never List: What are things you know you never will do?

  • Bungee Jumping

(When I was a college student, I would have loved to bungee! Now, I either have more sense…OR I am afraid that I would be safe on the way down, but on the way back up I would be hit in the face and smothered by my belly.)

  • Explore “unexplored caves”

 (As a kid, we had a cave in my grandfather’s back yard! Awesome! Now, I would want to explore cavern openings that I might not be able to turn around and get out of?)

  • Surfing

(I can’t swim. So this category would include a lot of things.)

  • Crowding Surfing at a Concert

(I still love concerts. Sometimes, the louder the better. But thanks just the same, I like my feet on the ground… and I am choosy about who touches my butt.)

  • Breaking a board with my head.

(Even at my age, I would love to master karate. But there are limits.)

  • How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? 
  • So, you’re on your way out and it’s raining. Do you know where your umbrella is or do you frantically search for it all over your apartment/house?
  • Do you recharge your energy by going out with friends for a good time or by spending with quiet time alone?

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? 

Depends on the day… On vacation days, I am probably fifteen. On the day after one of those rewarding days, I am feeling ninety?

So, you’re on your way out and it’s raining. Do you know where your umbrella is or do you frantically search for it all over your apartment/house?

What is an umbrella?

Do you recharge your energy by going out with friends for a good time or by spending with quiet time alone?

Yes… Both work equally well.

Name three things you and your spouse, partner, or best friend have in common.

  • Never-Ending Live as a Learner
  • A Lover of Archaeological Artifacts and History
  • Hiking for the Purpose of Birdwatching or Star-Gazing

  • Do you push the elevator button more than once?  Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?
  • Do you plan out things usually or do you do them more spontaneous (for example if you are visiting a big city you don’t know?)
  • Describe yourself in at least four uplifting words.
  • If you had a choice which would be your preference salt water beaches, fresh water lakes, ocean cruise, hot tub, ski resort or desert? 



Do you push the elevator button more than once?  Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?

Guilty as charged. When I am waiting for an elevator, I probably push the button every 15 seconds. (Of course it makes the elevator come to me faster… Why do you think I do it?)

Do you plan out things usually or do you do them more spontaneous (for example if you are visiting a big city you don’t know?)

I am a man with a plan. My last small trip was to the Frontier Culture Museum in Virginia. (If you ever get to Virginia, near Staunton, go there!) I had each of the exhibits labeled on my paper, the number of pictures I wanted to take, and the questions that I wanted to have answered that I had thought about since my last visit. (I go six or seven times a year, maybe more. It is a great place to walk a 5K and enjoy the sites!) (Shame on you, name-calling is not allowed on Share Your World!)

Describe yourself in at least four uplifting words.

  • Adventurous (Any new task can light up my life)
  • Bold (I don’t care that it hasn’t been done before.)
  • Compassionate (You gotta shoulder when you need one)
  • Disciplined (There is a pattern to life… Follow it!)
  • Energized (If you can’t enjoy it, why do it!)
  • Flexible (Mistakes happen… All the time)
  • Grounded (I know who I am)
  • Humorous (Trash-talking …It should be an Olympic sport!)
  • Intellectual (If you don’t have the knowledge, go to someone who does!)
  • Just (Fair is fair… Where you come from or who your parents are don’t count.)
  • Kind-Hearted (Forgiveness is a virtue)
  • Logical (If there is a volcano at the end of the path, take a detour, stupid!) (It’s OK to peep first, if you’ve never seen a volcano!)
  • Motivational (Don’t you hear the Superman theme song beginning to play?)
  • Persevering (Never, never, never give up!)
  • Quirky (Yes, I still like corny jokes and one-liners)
  • Resourceful (Construction paper and the laminator are your friends)
  • Steadfast (I got your back!) (Then later, I might kick you in the butt for stupidity!)
  • Tenacious (I’m a bulldog after the last biscuit if it’s something I believe in)
  • Unflappable (Hit me with your best shot)
  • Vivacious (At least seven hours of sleep a night and life is good!)
  • Wise (Well beyond my years)
  • Xenophile (A lover of exploring the lives and cultures of other though archaeology) (It took a while to find that one!)
  • Yearning for the good-ole days is a waste of time! Find more
  • Zest in your life and make new memories!

No, I did not leave out the “O”… I am using it last…

  • Overachiever! (That goes without saying!)

If you had a choice which would be your preference salt water beaches, fresh water lakes, ocean cruise, hot tub, ski resort or desert?
