How were you named? If you feel that your name is boring and the story behind it equally so, make up a name and come up with an interesting story behind that. (2/24)

I love my name. I guess we’re talking about our first name here. Mine is Tim. Very infrequently Timothy. I have no clue why my parents picked that name but I’m proud of it and I would never change it. … Continue reading

You receive an unmarked envelope with a check for $5,000,000 inside. It’s a legitimate check, what do you do with it? Do you ever find out who it is from? How does it change your life? (2/24)

You find out that you will die in five years or less. How did you find this out? What would you do in those five years? (2/19)

Well that sucks. But life will go on without me. So I’d best enjoy the time I have left. I’d try to cut work down to the minimum but probably not quit. I would take time off and travel, something … Continue reading

Describe an important item from your childhood. Why was it important and where is it now? (2/18)

My 1st Christmas gift. The 1st one I can remember. A beautiful electric train. It was probably a gift from my mom and dad, especially my dad, because he was a conductor for the Nancy Hanks, a Georgia passenger train. … Continue reading
