Banana Cream pie. (although rice crispie bars are #1)

Apple Valley MN (though I was born in Hamtramck MI)
My family. I can’t say no, and I love giving them everything I possibly can.

January for sure, my birthday and wedding anniversary (don’t ask why we got married in January, my brothers from Houston and Vegas thought we were cracked)
No thanks, trying to quit. (I’m very, very happy with the two I have)
L- Life is incomplete without…
My family. I was 37 before I got married and had kids. If I had known how much they would mean to me, I’d have done it sooner. (except for the fact that it might not have been with Mocha-momma)

January 8, 1994 (it might have been the coldest day of that winter; our car wouldn’t start the next morning at the hotel)

One older bro, one younger bro, and one baby sister (she’s 40)
O- Oranges or Apples?
Lightning: I had to run home through a horrible lightning storm when I was about 8, I hate being outside when it’s striking.
Q- Favorite Quote.
“A little nonsense now and then, is relished by, the wisest men.” Willie Wonka; but, the line I quote the most often is from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid---“think you used enough dynamite there Butch.” Just fill in the blank on the ‘used enough dynamite.’ Love that line.
R- Reasons to smile.
Sitting around the dinner table and hearing my wife and kids laugh at the top of their lungs.
Fall. And anything spicy

Ann Coulter, Vox Day, Burt Prelutsky
U- Unknown Fact About Me.

V– Vegetarian or Oppressor of Animals.
If God wanted me to be a vegetarian he wouldn’t have made pigs and cows so tasty.

Copenhagen Snuff. I started in college, and I have tried quitting too many times to count.
X– X-rays or Ultrasounds.
Neither, just give me a shot of whiskey and cut me open if you want to take a look inside.
Y- Your Favorite Foods.
My favorite dish---stuffed cabbage rolls (the way I make them) Individual foods---tomatoes, pickles and green olives. When I was a kid, if I got a dollar from anybody, I went to the corner store and bought a jar of green olives.
The stars and planets have some great purposes in their existence; determining my fate and destiny isn’t one of them.
