all (well some) of your questions answered

You’ll have to go to Jessica’s blog to see why I’m doing this. Here goes:

1. What is your fondest childhood memory?

My dad was a high school teacher, and when I was very young, my mom didn’t work. The summer that I turned five, they took me and my two brothers across the country in a van (hello early 70s!). We spent the whole summer on the road–camped out, stayed with friends, and saw more of the country than I can remember. We camped on the beach in San Diego, slept in Yellowstone, stayed with my aunt in Arizona (where my brother sat on a cactus–ouch!), saw snow in the middle of summer, stood at the Four Points where Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado & Utah meet. We camped in a barn owned by some hippie friends of my dad’s in Oregon, where the outhouse was infested with yellowjackets.

It was a great time, the best vacation I can remember. Now that I’m a parent myself, I think they must have been insane (my little brother was two!), but I’m really happy for that insanity on their part.

2. Physical or characteristic attribute you are most proud of?


3. Did you love him?

Honey, I loved them all, in their time.

4. If you could only study one subject for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Hmm, I’d like to say something really profound, like Remembrance of Things Past, but it’s just not true. I think it might have to be human behavior, in all its varied forms. But I’m just nosy like that.

5. Why didn’t you just say so?

I did. Why, weren’t you listening?

    late response here.
    I’m worried, my wife and I are actually considering doing a cross country trip next summer and our kids are a lot older than 5…. Does that mean we are hopelessly insane?

    well, as I said, that’s my favorite childhood memory, so I guess the question is, are you willing to give up your sanity to give your kids a great memory?

    Besides, at least the CB isn’t old enough to want to drive herself yet!
