I'm a country boy, so meat and taters is hard to beat! I will take a good pork chop every time! I would rather have pie than cake, but ice cream will win every time. Coffee: hot, black-the way God intended it!
Favorite things about Kosciusko County?
I am a transplant to this area, moving here in 1987, but it is home. It is not too big and not too small, and has everything we need. There are great people here, and have been blessed to build some great relationships. I can't imagine being anywhere else.
Anything unique or interesting about you that most people may not know?
I worked in the oil fields of Oklahoma for 5 years and was certified as an explosives handler and radioactive materials handler (explains a lot--huh?). I play(ed) the trombone. I was the first male student in my high school to take Home Ec.--along with my best friend--basic cooking class.
