Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. What you lose in the whirlygig, you get back in the ding dong.

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

A. I'd love to be a dog for a day...or part of a wolf pack.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. Beard?

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. Well, I'll avoid saying I'd like to meet a gigantic figure and have a conversation about the meaning of life...I mean, come on...so I'll go with spending a day with Susan Butcher or one of the great dog sled drivers.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. I always liked Robin Hood. When my son was growing up, I became a fan of Encyclopedia Brown.
