Interview Expierment: Questions 3,4&5

Holly Hall got her self wrapped up in an interview experiment from BE Earl (i think, i don't research these things) and asked if anyone else would like to be interview. I took the bait, and now I have five posts to write. Which is good, I was kind of in a writing/posting slump.
All right lets just wrap this up.

Q3: How did you propose to Wife?
It was New Years Eve 2000. We were in downtown Portland and ready to go home. I didn't keep the ring with me because I didn't want to lose it. We got home and as the ball dropped, so did my question.

Q4: Who is the artist featured on your site, Steve Dean? And why do you like his art?
Steve is technically my step-dad. In reality he is a great friend I have know for way over 20 years. Steve taught me how to draw and play music (bass, guitar drums) and introduced me to all the other instruments that go with it. I love his stuff because it almost always comes from interactions in the real world. and the style is great in its simplicity. Who needs thousands of dollars of paint?; when the same thing can be done in pen pencil, a little white out and a highlighter. I also like it, because it is creative and imaginative. We've got a couple of local shows in the past years but so far have only sold one item. But at this point that's not really the goal. Spreading the word is. One of my current favorites is: HERE.

Q5: What is something you do every day that is the best part of your day?
Best part of my day? Monday through Friday is getting home. simple. Saturday and Sunday, being home. Some of the best days I never even leave my 2 acre lot.

Would YOU like to be interviewed by me?
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.


  1. Aw, who knew you were such a romantic? Sweet proposal story.
    I'm with you there on the being home part, good down home fun, yep.
    And I'm loving the Bluegrass Interlude video, too!

  2. I loved your Q3 also ( more that sure that your Misus was overjoyed ;)).
    I wish that I had an artistic talent like your Step Dad; great of you to feature him.

    Finally, my hubby agrees 100% that the best part of the work day is... returning home.
