|Granddaughter Lindsay & Kathy|
1. Do you live close to where you grew up? Why? I live in the same state. I had always said that when my kids were grown I’d move out of Connecticut to a warmer place. I did not foresee that in 2004 I’d get a job that I couldn’t replace. We had six inches of snow last night. I truly hate winter. But had I left, I’d be further from my grandkids and would not be with my lady.
2. Have you ever been so angry that you almost lost control? Only once. At a pee-wee football game my son, who was in the game, was horsing around with another kid and pushed him off the bench. The boys father ran over picked my son up and threw him. I could not believe my eyes. Ben was not injured, he was in full football gear. I had to restrained from killing the man. I made such a stink with the league that the guy was banned from going to games. In retrospect I should have pressed charges.
3. Are you a fan of a musical act that slightly embarrasses you? Not now, but in high school I was a fan of what they called bubblegum music. My favorite song from that genre was Quick Joey Small. When I hit college, I got totally into rock. The first time I heard Tommy, the Who’s rock opera, I never looked back.
4. Is there a movie that always makes you cry? Notting Hill. I don’t really understand why, either. It’s a great romantic comedy, but Roberts and Grant really had no chemistry. But the plot always gets to me. I know a guy is not supposed to even like romantic comedies. But I do. So there.
5. Who is the most famous person that you’ve met? I’ve kissed Bonnie Raitt and met Huey Lewis. Both pretty cool events.

6. Before you leave your home, what must you have? Keys, iPhone, wallet and reading glasses. Fascinating question. I may have to kill off Sam and let Judd do this fucking meme.
7. What do you miss the most about being a kid? That everything was taken care of for me. No worries and no troubles. Although that make believe Tape Radio station that I created lives on. It’s been the only constant in my life since I was 14. I always thought I’d outgrow it. Maybe next year, who knows?
9. At what age do you think you’d be to think, “I’ve had a great run”? When I was in my 30s, my father-in-law died at 66. I remember thinking that he lived his life his way and that it wasn’t too young. Now I look at 66 as though it were 40. My folks are in their mid 80s. I’m not sure I want all of their physical ailments. But they still seem happy. That’s because they divorced in the 80s.
We’re glad that you stopped by.
Enjoy your weekend.
