to be a little generic. Let me see, I have had many jobs. I have
worked since I was 16. I worked in a liquor store, hardware store,

more pictures since someone suggested that I might be part of the
witness protection program because of the distant photo.

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making others laugh. Listening. Telling stories. I keep reading in
other summaries that have been posted: "I don't want to hear any
drama." I really don't understand what in the world people mean by
that. Life is full of drama. I suppose if you like talking to
someone, what is drama to one person is an interesting story to
another. I have worked in occupations where listening is really

Current events. What motivate people to do good. The power of
prayer. I know of an interesting story about rows of corn planted
in the same soil with seeds that came from same package. Corn was
watered from the same source. One row was cursed and damned and the
other row of corn was prayed over. The cursed row withered and
died. The row that was prayed over grew strong. I suppose I think
about whether I will grow old alone.
