Who was your best friend growing up?
I always had friends at school but never away from school until I met my buddy John. He was kind of forced on us. He moved here from California to live with his Grandma. His Grandma didn't know what to do with a teenage boy and so just like that - I had a brother. He was a couple of years younger and never been around big animals like cows and horses so he went through a crash course of animal management. He also became a great partner helping me drive horse drawn carriages on the weekends in Guthrie.
Money was of no concern what would you be doing?
Definitely, lots of traveling. See this great world that God has made for us.
Can you share something that embarrasses you?
As Heady knows, speaking in public. That is weird right. Seeing that I drove a carriage for 25 years for all kinds of tourist in Guthrie. But see here's the thing, I didn't look at the people while I drove. I had to watch where the horse was going. It took 6 long months of Heady asking me before I finally prayed For our huddle at church. And now I've done it several times.
