Questionable Answers

Cindy Swanson, writer, interviewer and radio personality extraordinaire, is conducting Random Blogospheric Pseudo-Interviews with Random Blogospheric Pseudo-Bloggers...

1) When you were a little boy, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A pro golfer. Each year, a new plastic-ball, 18-hole course was mapped out covering several adjacent lawns, and the same foursome conducted a summer-long tournament. I think the ultimate winner had a score of about 327 over par.

2) You've been given an entire day to do whatever you want, and money is no object. What would you do?
First of all, thank you Cindy for such a kind offer! I think I'd hire a room full of hot dog studio musicians, rent out the top local recording studio, and record some worship tunes. But this is why I bought the Mac I am typing on, so I need to get going on this project anyway, minus the cool studio and the hot dogs.

3) Do you have a favorite sport or sports team? Why or why not?
Definitely the 1964 Rome, New York, Little Leaque, Lake Delta Cubs. I was such a pathetic player, my poor dad had little to cheer about--but in '64, our team somehow made it to the finals. Late in the game I plunked my very first base hit over the second baseman's short reach, and started a rally which gave us the championship. Recently Katy pulled the trophy out of a dusty box in my mom's basement, and I'm completely embarrassed to say it now sits on a bookshelf in my office.

4) What do you like most about having a son?
We have two great sons. Just like the gasp of joy that came out of my mouth when the first was born, I continue to be surprised and amazed by the insights, integrity and compassion that God has put in their hearts. This is equally true for our lovely daughter, with the addition of bizarre dance routines thrown into the mix.

5) Why is my blog not linked on your sidebar? Yours has been on mine for quite some time. (Nothing like putting you on the spot, huh? )
I don't know what you mean. It's right there in the sidebar. ;)

The little 1964 baseball player trophy is the CUTEST thing you've ever seen. He's swinging the bat with his cute little bottom sticking out--adorable. But I might prefer the miniature wooden bowling pin trophy from 1967. It's high gloss just like a real bowling pin, with Dougie's name written on it in cursive....I've probably just blown every bit of his blog-street cred, huh? :)

Loved your answers, Doug! Oh, and I was thinking you and Katy just had a son and a daughter. Of course, sons and daughters are both wonderful.

Sorry, I know this is off topic, but what a clever layout you have. I really feel like I'm reading a book!

Nice job! Nice site!

Cindy: Loved your questions! We're not looking forward to our youngest moving out, but fortunately Katy and I like each other.

Ticklebug: Thanks for the kind comment. As evidenced by my sparse posting, I could never complete an actual book, so this will have to do.
