Here are 40 things about him you may or may not know.

  1. played football and basketball in high school and baseball in the summer. (guess my kids get most of their athletic ability from him but I won't admit this very often!)
  2. met me while we were both attending WT.
  3. never gets up in the morning saying, "I don't want to go to work today!" (keep waiting for this one to rub off on me!)

  6. works extremely hard holding down 2 jobs and has done this for years.
