What is your favorite sport or activity?
For the last three years its been cooking. Im a wannabe chef, so once a month I fix a lunch at the senior center with help of a professional chef, so I can learn the secrets of the trade. And I cook the pork chop dinners for the Ladies of the Moose and the Eagles. I love fishing, but with all the rules and regulations, Im a bit turned off. Id love to go catch a sturgeon, but theyre stopping that too. But I used to love fishing.
Tell me about your best friend.
Well right now its my wife. She understands me and knows me. Im like most men we get a little hot now and then and shes pretty calm.
Whats the best compliment youve ever received?
The one I got today, saying that I did a good job recruiting my friends for the AARP office. Anytime you volunteer and get a thank you, thats quite rewarding.
What was your most embarrassing moment?
I went out on a date with this gal, and you know all condominiums look alike? I went to her apartment; I should have been in B and was in C. So I went in and used the bathroom and waited and waited and she never came. So I went and called her phone number and she answered her apartment was the floor below me. Thats how I found out. I was probably there a good 30 minutes, read the paper and everything. That was really embarrassing. One time I won a Halloween contest as the prettiest girl! Another time I ran out of oil on an RV trip, and all the other RVs were piled up behind us and each of them donated a quart of oil to help me out it was so embarrassing.
When I was little, I wanted to grow up to be
Probably a culinary arts chef. But its a really rough job though because youre stuck in a little tiny room the kitchen.
What is the worst job youve had?
I worked for a supervisor that committed suicide. So working with management when theyre almost crazy mentally. To commit suicide, he had to be unstable. So Id say that was the toughest part of my working years. Or a job where you dont get along with coworkers.
If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only have two objects with you, what would they be?
Thats easy. Its not gonna help me, its silly, but it would be a remote control and chocolates once I eat one I cant stop.
What makes you unhappy?
Right now its crazy, stupid people. But in spite of that, the White House, and the sandbagging Republicans and Democrats. They need to get together and work things out. Thats really one of the things thats making me unhappy right now.
What is your weakness?
Right now Im going through a period of short term memory, where I set things down and I cant remember where I put it.
How would you like to be remembered?
If there was something that needed to be done and no one else wanted to do it, then Im your man.
