Eleven (more) things about me:
– Laughing (okay, giggling) at not-the-most-appropriate moments has embarrassed me more often than I want to say.
– Often better than human dialects, I speak fluent canid (large work breeds, wolf and coyote), several equine dialects and some avian dialects.
– Rocking an air guitar is my favorite gift – bring on the ZZ Top.
– My record for reading one book is 28 non-stop hours. What I can do with one hand in poor light impresses even me.
– Cleaning and repairing things around the house, yard and garage, for me is good therapy.
– Rebuilding the engine to repair a hairline crack in the head of my first car (myself) took me three weeks; a 1963 Chevy II, 230 cu.in., 3.8 L, I6, column shift.
– Hiking, backpacking and camping in the Angeles National Forest and Red Rock Canyon were our favorite activities while my boys were young.
– Friends used to bet on my accuracy with a long-distance rifle, and I can hit the broad side of a barn with a hand gun.
– While I spent months of accumulated hours sitting surfboards off the California coast, I actually rode the waves in a very few times – and will never forget them.
– The most thrilling experience of my life was when a whale “led us back to port”, breaching a couple of lengths ahead of us four or five times. I think of it every time I see the an ad for In the Heart of the Sea.
– Mining (opals) and panning for gold were also hobbies.
