TEN THINGS PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT ME

1) THE BIGGEST LOSER: I once lost 40 pounds in 30 days eating nothing but Frosted Flakes once a day and lifting lots of weights. (Don't try it though, very unsafe)

2) THE REV: I almost became a minister (finished most of the schooling), but decided not to after my mother passed away.

3) MY VICE: I recorded every episode of the original Miami Vice TV show and had them on VHS for years until they were ruined in storage.

4) CRYBABY: Touched By An Angel episodes always make me cry

5) CHOCOLATE: I love chocolate and I love ice cream, just not chocolate ice cream

6) RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH: I once wrote a story that was so traumatizing for me that I gave it to Karen to put up and have never read it in the more than 10 years since I wrote it.

7) FISHERMAN: A full-page picture of me fishing appeared in Field & Stream magazine. I didn't even know it until I was in a doctor's office and someone who I didn't know said they saw my photo in the magazine. (The kicker was I was just fishing out a dead fish that was floating next to my boat ... but don't tell them that)

8) TOONS: I used to be a cartoonist for a magazine, but the skill has long since left me. If you don't use it you lose it. I also illustrated Shakespeare's "The Taming of The Shrew" in high school just so I wouldn't have to write a report on it. The teacher like it so much he kept it ... Wish I had it now.

9) RING, RING: I have a phobia about talking on the phone.

10) MY GIRL: I still suck in my stomach, stick out my chest and flex my muscles whenever Karen is around. (I still try to impress my girl even after nearly 30 years of marriage.)
