Whatcha favorite tunes on your ipod/phone/cd/cassette/8 track/vinyl/phonograph? That all depends on what I’m doing. If I’m working at my desk I’m listening to classical piano music. I find its lack of movement drowns out the noise around me, helping me concentrate. If I’m in my truck, I’m usually listening to Christian music or news radio. And, if I’m running I’m listening to Pandora and the station is typically something like Lynyrd Skynyrd (I’ve got to have something with a strong beat).
What is your favorite season? Why? I could say fall, but I can be more specific than that … Deer Season. I really like to hunt. Football Season would also fall in that same time frame.
What do you like to do in your free time? In addition to the above, believe it or not I really enjoy working in the yard. I find that very relaxing and satisfying. I also enjoy running (I was able to complete my first marathon in 2013) and doing anything with my wife and kids.
