2 - I joke around (a lot), so it is hard for me to write anything without trying to work humor into it (you may now consider yourself to have been warned).
3 - I don't know, maybe I'll come up with something to write here.
OH, OH, I thought of something. I am a bit of a smart-ass. Maybe that is included in #2, I don't know.
4 - I like to exercise and for the last 3 years that has taken the form of a lot of full-court basketball. It does come at a certain price. I had injuries to both legs starting in september and endind (hopefully) in June. Unfortunately I continued to play in pain, which was probably not the wisest actions of my life.
(I have a high tolerance for pain. Further evidence of this is that I was married for 20 years). I play basketball with men of different age groups. This includes college age men during the summer. It has really helped with my conditioning and other health related things. (Choletseral, blood pressure, heart rate, etc.) I also work out on the road with P90X. I also play in a softball league during the summers. Injury update - ankle is healed (re-injured in June, but healing quickly), right leg healed, left leg almost 100%. Alles gut
5 - I love being outdoors. I own a convertible and a motorcycle. Lately, I have been exploring the new city parks with Apollo the Wonder Beagle.
6 - I have played several musical instruments, but don't really play them often now.
I have 3 daughters and love them very much. The youngest just turned 15 this month.
I have a wonderful 3 year old beagle and 16 year old cat. Both are very affectionate except the cat doesn't really care for the dog. Unfortunately, the 17 year old's cat went into severe decline and we had to euthanize her a couple of weeks ago.
I have a great deal of "formal education" and also, a great deal of airline training. I split my undergrad between a small baptist university out of state and "THE" Ohio State University. (It didn't have the "THE" when I started -- actually, I guess it did. It just wasn't stressed until Jennings was President.) I did all of my grad school at TOSU. I also taught Math, Marketing, and Flying there.
I have worked in several career fields, but settled into being an airline pilot. I work for an airline located outside of the US and I fly all over the world. I have been exposed to several languages and they all float around in my head like the flakes in a snow globe.
OK, none of that was funny. I will try to do better. I'm tired and am also not really a fan of filling out stuff like this.
