cOnFiDeNtIaL - Only to be read by family members

I am responding to my daughter-in-law's challenge to post "20 things you may not know about me" so here they are - no judging please:

1) I was insanely shy through High School & College (I know, you don't believe it, ask my Mom) I can thank my first wife & my mentor Bill A for helping me overcome this.

2) I have been on TV twice - Once on CNBC and once on QVC
3) I was born in the great state of South Dakota - It's destiny that I own Harley's

4) I never, ever thought I would be good in sales
5) I just read "THE SHACK" I wish everyone would.

6) I would love to live in China, for a while
7) In Jr High I was supposed to fight George Padot in the Butcher Woods after school - He showed up and said he could not fight because of a steel plate in his head (I was Glad)
8) I believe that the "middle child syndrome" is poppy-cock

9) I have only ridden 44,184 miles on 3 motorcycles

8) I kissed a girl and I liked it! Still do.

9) In grade school Debora Prenkie beat me up under the monkey-bars. (and I liked that too)
.................................DEBORA =====>
10) On Devils Night in High School - Kevin, Jeff, Bro Mike and I slept out in Jeff A's back yard. Loaded with a dozen eggs each we headed to Ryan Road to launch eggs @ Jerry Karwowski's house. LOCK - LOAD - FIRE - first 4 eggs tossed - brought the sound of broken glass. Oops - We dropped the eggs and headed for our tents. "My name is Harley Rider" - Sorry Jerry!

11) I am constantly in need of more Cowbell!

12) We grew up in a house with a Fruit Cellar in the basement. My mother would send me to get Applesauce, Pickles, or whatever, and I had to bring a hammer or bat with me because I was scared shit less. You see - my cast aside Danny-O-Day puppet was sitting on the shelf - waiting for me - angry with me - staring at me - judging me!

13) I like Black

14) I hate yard work

15) I occasionally like to cook

16) I miss my WIFE!!!!!

17) Patience comes with age I have always been told. I am past the half century mark and I can impatiently tell you that is PURE 100% Bull Shit!

18) I support P.E.T.A. - People Eating Tasty Animals especially Lamb Chops

19) I used to have a healthy 401K (now my kids will have to take care of me when I get old)

20) I can not think of any more that you need to know - Oh except that I have a watch, bag, leather jacket, boot, briefcase fetish that I can not control!!

Well that's it, hope this sheds some light on my odd "being" and behavior. Happy Halloween!
