Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. If you're bored, you have no one to blame but yourself.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. Laziness. Mine or anybody's else's. I'm not real high on self-pity, either.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I'm much too impatient. I live in a near-constant state of irritability, though my irritation is usually directed at myself more than at anyone else.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. Truthfully, I'm envious of Baloo the Bear in Disney's Jungle Book. I always thought he had everything just where he wanted it to be.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. It's never happened in my lifetime, and probably never will, but I think I would personally get as close to perfect happiness as is possible for me if the San Francisco Giants ever won the World Series. I've been waiting since I fell in love with baseball in 1958.
