Ok, a bunch of folk have been asking me to comment on the tidbits that I posted in the last post. You talked me into it. Most if not all of them are true though some do need some explanation.
My sister Trisha said…
You are the best at helping someone “in need.” Many, many times in my life I have been in need……of support, of someone to listen, of a friend, of someone to drive 100 miles to offer that support and you’ve, without fail, have always come through. How’s that?
Well that kinda’ blew me away. Thanks Trisha!

1. U like sitting in a hot tub when it’s snowing
True! Sitting in a hot tub in a snowstorm is a rare treat.
2. U can’t drink Tequila
Very True. I poisoned myself with Tequila on my 22nd birthday. I can’t even smell Tequila without my stomach turning somersaults.
3. U SHOULDN’T drink Vodka
Um, Ah, apparently I called Michele one night after having a few too many glasses of Vodka. She is still laughing at me about that night.
4. U don’t Hate cats even though u pretend u do.
Alright, I’ll give you this one. Cats are Ok.
5. Quite sentimental & romantic even though it spoils ur tuff guy image.
I don’t know about sentimental but yea I guess I am romantic, when it comes to her.
6.Ur a jerk and it’s on ur permanent record.
Private joke. She just told me it’s non-expugnable. I said, Well at least I’m good at it.
My friend Helen said…
You had a romantic tryst with Joan Jett.
The only thing I’m going to admit to in public is hanging out with her at an after show party many moons ago.
You shoot squirrels as they attempt to break in through your bathroom window.
Close. I have an air rifle on the back of the toilet to shoot squirrels out in my back yard from the bathroom window.
You have an unhealthy fascination for time pieces.
It’s not unhealthy. I have a bunch of clocks from Grandfather clocks to mantel clocks. I only have five clocks in my living room but I do have nine in my office.
Your favourite sayings are “Horse Hockey”, “Cool Beans”, “Too Too Funny” “Aint no thing” “No biggie” and “For real”.
Yea, I guess I do use them too much but it’s no biggie.
You have an addiction to Stromboli Pizza which kicks in most Friday nights
I have to take Helen to school here. Stromboli and Pizza are two different things. Pizza is just that, Pizza and Stromboli is pizza dough stretched out and filled with Italian meats and cheeses and spices and stuff then rolled up and cooked. Yum!!
You’re going to mount the sapphire in your wedding ring on the front sight of a Kreighof or Benelli.
You have a vial of crude oil pumped from the McClintock well to sitting on a bookshelf beside a piece of coal from somewhere else in PA
True. How cool is that? I think it is and it sits right beside a chunk of Anthracite coal from Schuylkill County
My friend Jim said…
Brian was my first roommate ever… in a hospital nursery then 19 years later in college we were roommates again, he grew 6 feet 2 inches in that time, I think he has stopped getting taller now.
Nobody believes us. Jim and I were born on the same day, in the same hospital and our Mothers shared the recovery room. He is 15 minutes older than I. By the way I am 6’2″ and Jim is about 5’4″.
My friend Linda also chimed in…
Brian is a motorcycle enthusiast he likes to ride to Ephrata Pa. to look at all the motorcycles and sidecars. He is a master of trivia and a lifelong friend.” Don’t Ya know I had to include sidecars.
She is absolutely correct. It’s called First Sunday at the Ephrata American Legion. On the first Sunday of each month hundreds and hundreds of bikers show up at around 0800 and everyone parks in the three parking lots and walks around checking out everyone else’s bikes. It’s a blast. Then everyone leaves at noon, we stop somewhere for lunch. It’s a fun Sunday ride. By the way Linda has two BMW bikes both of which have sidecars. How else can she take her dogs for a ride?
Polly and Duke the aussie dogs say:
He smells like meat sometimes and is pretty good with a ball.
Duke is definitely an Aussie Shepard. He sits beside you on the couch looking all sad and doggie like then when you are least expecting it he lurches forward and licks your nose. You can almost hear him laughing as he runs away.
