10 on Tuesday: 10 Things Most People Don't Know About You

1) My first name has the same amount of syllables as my middle and last names combined. This is not something you don't know as much as something you have not realized.

2) I have a piece of pencil lead in my left hip that has been there since the 1st grade.

3) I love peanut butter and sweet pickle sandwiches.

4) I accidentally stole a frozen pizza from Kroger once. (I paid for it later)

5) I have lost track of how many times I have seen the movie Anaconda. Whenver it’s on TV I watch it. I’m not sure that I can explain why.

6) As a child I had a green toy box that was the shape of a frog’s head. My dad, not long out of seminary, named the toy box Theophilus.

7) As a teenager I climbed Robb Lodge at Camp Loucon. We climbed up the stone portion that meets the roof and then down the other side.

8) That same summer I broke into the (old) Camp Loucon office with the Jr. High camp dean, (The Rev.) Dan Smith. We wrapped the camp director’s life size 3-D cardboard Tin Man in the pantyhose he tired to send Dan during mail call. That camp director only lasted one year. And, by-the-way, this was a long time ago when the office had but only a pad lock. All you had to do was used a screwdriver to unscrew the latch that the pad lock held together. Now there’s a new office with real locks and everything.

9. As the story has been told to me: When I was about three years old we had a bad winter and the pipes at our house froze. My dad brought home milk jugs full of water from the church (the parsonage was next door) so we’d have some water at the house. While our mothers visited my cousin, Danny, and I decided to give the goldfish a bath in the sink of the carpeted bathroom with the jugs of water.

10) Today I am wearing pink underwear.

Great list! The story about you breaking into the camp office is a hoot!

BTW... I'm very jealous of your garden pics in your previous blog.
