Interests and Hobbies
I am a fan of all sports and large TVs that broadcast those sports. I am still in pursuit of the perfect couch or recliner to sit in while watching the large TV broadcasting sports. Since moving to the Southwest I am learning to like sushi, although I think we called it “bait” back in Iowa. I enjoy spending time with my dogs even though they shed everywhere. I do own a truck that is currently not running, so don’t ask me to help you move. My wife and I also seem to adopt pets and people when then need a home for a few days (or months).
