The one thing I am passionate about...
Family. Faith, Florida State football. Carolina basketball. Intellect. Wit. Humor. Travel to interesting and historic places. National political events and recent intrigue. An outstanding book that can't be put down. The Academy Awards.
I typically spend my leisure time
I most enjoy spending time with my 13 year old daughter. Although we do not live together, we do spend a lot of time together and have many wonderful adventures. I love to travel and have seen most of our beautiful country through work or pleasure. I haven't made it to Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire or Arizona yet, but plan to visit them all at some point "down the road". Also, I have Alaska and Hawaii in my future plans as well.
The most influential person in my life has been
HONESTY.Without that fundamental character trait, the development of a true relationship simply isn't possible. It is the cornerstone to trust and thus to the possibility of future "building".
The first thing people notice about me
My devilish charm and Robert Redford looks...(ONLY KIDDING!) Got you to smile though, right?
The last book I read and enjoyed
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Since my daughter has read the whole series, I've committed to read it as well. I'm about half way through the first book, so have some good reading ahead of me. I usually read a fiction as well as a non fiction book simultaneously, so I can choose which I prefer at any one time. I read most every night.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am thankful for my children. With the exception of the "caboose", they are all up and grown.
- I am thankful for my Christian faith which has sustained me during challenging times.
- To live in a free and democratic country is truly a gift. Our founders were genius.
