The “Lightning Round”
Favorite movie: Dances with Wolves is one, Gone with the Wind is the other.
Best vacation ever: A vacation to Hawaii, Oahu and Maui, is probably my favorite!
What are your favorite hobbies? Golf and reading are my two biggest hobbies. I like reading lots of things, old westerns, murder mysteries, nonfiction… just depends on what sparks my interest!
Food you can’t live without: Being a good southern boy, beans and cornbread have been a favorite for me from the time as I was a small boy, to the boy I am today.
Favorite TV show: The Yellowstone. It’s about a dysfunctional family that owns a large ranch out West. My wife and I watch it on Paramount Network.
Favorite band: I have a great deal of difficulty picking a favorite. Three Dog Night and The Doobie Brothers are both up there.
