I've Been Tagged: Five Things You Didn't Know About Me

I've been tagged by Brendon, so here are 5 things that you don't know about me:

  1. While I was born in Mobile (AL), and went to school there from 3rd grade until I graduated high school, I actually started school in Italy.
  2. I was 3rd place in 4th grade 50 yard dash -- the 1st and 2nd place finishers went on to be my high school running back and quarterback.
  3. My high school chess team won 3 Mobile county and 3 Alabama state championships -- we had no star, but were all equally pretty good.
  4. I was goofing around on a piano and singing when I first met my wife Jenny -- then we went to a Chinese group at the University of Alabama.
  5. I started programming professionally when I was laid off from teaching college math during a budget crisis that laid off everyone not tenured. 

And now I return the favor and tag Jerry Dennany, Paul Lockwood, Greg Young, Kirk Evans, and Scott Guthrie.


  • I was born in Mobile as well (1957) and played chess on the Shaw High team. I also graduated from the University of Alabama!

  • Local boys, huh? I lived in Mobile, off and on, from age 16 to age 45, then seeking a better life, I moved to Fairhope. BTW, graduated from Vigor in '69.
