Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Let me be worthy of my horses.
Q. What’s your best quality?

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. Strawberries. Well, strawberries and blueberries. And corn on the cob. And tomatoes warm off the vine. Okay, meatloaf once in a while.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. I sure would like to be able to yodel, although there isn't much call for it in the classroom. And I'd like to be able to ride a lot better than I do, though there's still time to improve that. I hope.
