Four jobs I've had:
1.) Grocery store sacker; from 16 to graduation at 17.
2.) Navy helicopter mechanic; 17-19 on active duty, then weekend warrior for 3 years.
3.) Janitor, Navy Exchange North Island; only a few months while we were waiting for
my wife to have our first son and be discharged.
4.) General Motors autoworker; Sept. 1978 through the present. When I hired in my
oldest was 5 months old and the youngest was on the way. Now the youngest has
3 of his own...
Four places I've lived:
1.) Kansas City, Kansas, from birth to 17, and from 22 'til now.

2.) City Lights (1931, Charles Chaplin)

2.) Grilled chicken breast

Four places I'd rather be right now:
1.) Vermont (where my wife is from and I love it there, it's so beautiful!!!)
2.) the Yorkshire Moors (too in love with Bronte novels)
3.) Table Rock Lake, southern Missouri (grew up fishing there with Dad each summer)
4.) Cornwall (just because I'd love to see it)
Four Bloggers I'd like to tag:
1.) Blogzie (because I can't imagine what her answers will be)
2.) Sttropezbutler (because I'd like to know more about him)
3.) Annie (like Blogzie, I just can't imagine...)
4.) Mary (like STB, I'd like to know more)
of course, this list could go on and on, with Inger and Dr. Deb and so many others!
I saw another one of these last week that had some other categories, one of which I liked:
Four "albums" I can't live without:
1.) Gerry Mulligan-"Live in Paris, 1954" (love every note he ever played, but this is my desert island disc)
2.) Joni Mitchell-every album, but especially "Miles of Aisles"
3.) Lara St. John-"Gypsy"
4.) Joni Mitchell-"Court and Spark"
I was going to throw in Blogzie's "Five Weird Things About Me", but can't come up with 5...
1.) I have no toe nails on either big toe (different mishaps over the years).
2.) I have the ugliest tattoo on my right shoulder from a drunken night in Hong Kong
when I was 18 and didn't figure to see 21. (Coffin bodied "trike" driven by a
3.) I sleep with 6 pillows (on my side, two under my knee and leg, two in front of
me, two under my head)
