Joseph Monninger
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

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

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. I don't know that I have a "greatest" fear, but I've always had the idea that one day a shark would get me. Not sure why. Crazy, probably.

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. 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’s your best quality?

A. Hmmm. Well, I'm determined. I'm exceptionally good at Monopoly....and know all the rents and hotels fees by heart.
