249 - Seven Things MeMe

Last week I was tagged with a MeMe by Janet – The Queen of Seaford. So now I have to tell you seven things about me you didn’t know.

1 – I married my high school sweetheart. Cindy and I met at Kempsville High School in Virginia Beach. She was sixteen and I was seventeen when she asked me to the annual Sadie Hawkins Day dance. We have been married 34 years.
2 – Before moving into my current field of technology management, I worked as a City Planner. I was once in charge of naming streets in Virginia Beach.
3 – My father was a carpenter as was his father. From him I learned skills of woodworking and home improvement and do most of my own repairs. Coworkers have teased me about having renovated the entire house.
4 – As a collector I have over 500 different PEZ candy dispensers as well as numerous antique watches and lots of fountain pens.
5 – I can decipher binary and hexadecimal numbers. The clock on my desk at home is a binary display.
6 – A trivia buff, I know a little about a lot.
7 – My 15 minutes of fame came in 1993 when my son and I were at a local Subway restaurant and a pickup truck crashed into the store. No one was hurt, but the security camera caught the entire "made for TV" incident. We were startled to see ourselves jumping out of way on CNN the next morning. I was interviewed for an episode of a show called “Caught on Tape”. The episode still runs on cable TV now and then.

Now for today's photo - Sand dunes in the late afternoon sun. Canon G10, 1/2000 sec @ f/3.2, ISO 200.

Hooray! Fun reading a bit about you. Love the sand dune.
so---do you still go to Subways?

Sure do. In fact the owner of that Subway gave me free subs for about five years until he sold the place.

Hahahaha I'm sure I've seen that Subway truck incident clip.

Nice picture - makes me want to go to the beach apart from the fact its cold and raining in the UK today.
