Who Am I

In an effort to get to know each other a little better, I have devised this little game. It has nothing to dow with the Games or wiht Lexington. But it could be fun.

1. Device I would never give up... does a corkscrew count as a device?
2. Three things I can't live without... my debit card, wine and evidentially my wife.
3. My first real job was... paper boy.
4. I love watching... re-runs of NCIS. Which begs the question-Kate or Ziva?
5. I wish I had more... wine in the cellar. Or I guess what I really need is a cellar.
6. When I get home, I like to wear... sweats and a long sleeve tee. No pocket.
7. The best thing about being a parent is... watching your little girls become very strong women.
8. The worst thing about being a parent is... watching your little girls become very strong women and the prospect they will move on to lives of their own.
9. TWO important things I learned from my mother were... how to cook and faith in God.
10. TWO important things I learned from my father were... NEVER make your mom mad and you can do anything you want as long as you don't make your mom mad.

11. When I have an extra hour at home, I like to... nap
12. The location where I do my best thinking is... usually in the shower while I am planning for the day.
13. In the mornings... I head straight for the expresso machine.
14. I love to take vacations... and only worry about when is happy hour gonna start.
15. Something that really annoys me... automatic updates that insist I stop everything I'm doing to restart my laptop in order to continue working.
16. I make the best... veal picatta.

Now it's your turn! Want to share a little about yourself? Let's keep this moving and get to know a bit about one another!

She's leaving!

I know this is not really about the World Equestrian Games. It's not even about Lexington. It is only a little about me, in fact. It's about Emily. My youngest daughter.
She is leaving in the morning.
She is leaving the country.
She has a new job.
In another country.
And did I mention she leaves in the morning.

And I am very proud.

She is going to work at the Winter Olympics in Whistler, BC.

And she is leaving in the morning.

And I wish I was going, too . . .
