5 Questions For Wes

1. Where can we find you when you’re not working?

Prior to moving, you would have found me working in the numerous flower gardens in my yard. But now that we downsized to a townhouse, I enjoy reading about WWII history and visiting museums.

2. If you weren’t doing what you do today, what other job would you have?

I was SOOO close to pursuing an acting career, but I realized I didn’t want to spend my time bussing dishes when I wasn’t on stage. But I do enjoy performing on stage.

3. Would you rather ride a bike, ride a horse, or drive a car? Why?

I rode a horse…once. Hated it. And it’s difficult to ride a bike during an Indiana winter. I guess I’ll have to stick with my SUV.

4. What would you do if you won the lottery?

The term ‘lottery’ is rather vague. Is it a scratch-off or Powerball? If it’s the latter, I will visit as many WWII battle fields in Europe and the Pacific as possible. Did I mention I enjoy history?

5. What three items would you take with you on a deserted island?

My typewriter, a mountain of paper, and a gallon of ‘WhiteOut’. I’ll need those to write my award winning novel that I’ll call “Castaway”. Oh wait, didn’t Tom Hanks do that already?
