The Friday Fives

First apologies: I was traveling back from Greenville, NC, all day on Friday and literally forgot about posting the Fives.

Riding the passenger train from Craig to Hayden to see my grand parents back in the day when that line was running.

2. What was a sad moment from your child that pulled you into real life?

Death of my grand father and going to the funeral when I was five years old.

3. What will you never buy cheap?

Coffee. Don’t but the cheap stuff. Live is short. And shoes

4. What do you usually buy the cheapest version of?

Most generic or store brands of basic kitchen pantry staples (canned tommatoes, peanut butter, baking goods. )

5. What’s your favorite childhood TV show or cartoon?

I was a pretty huge fan of “Jonny Quest” but watchng old episodes on YouTube – wow, show did not hold up.

The Friday Fives

If you won the $1.3 billion Powerball this weekend what are the first five things you would you do?

1. That would be such an overwhelming amount. I would give myself an annual allowance of $10 or $20 million

2. I’d set up a family trust

3. Then set up a charitible trust

4. Sure a couple of nice houses and cars

5. It would be such a life changing event – I think I would have work with an attorney to disappear of the grid – probably create an LLC to hide all the assets in order to be as close to anonimity as possible.

The Friday Fives

1. If the last character from a movie or tv show you watched recently was stalking you, who would it be?

Sherlock Holmes (Johnnie Lee Miller) – that could be terrifying as you know you can’t hide from Sherlock.

2. If you could take a movie soundtrack song to be your personal soundtrack/anthem what would it be?

James Bond theme song from “You Only Live Twice”

3. What’s a movie or TV show that had a significant impact on your life?

Probably “The Six Million Dollar Man.” As a kid that show captivated me. I had the action figures and toys, the lunch box and I remember a poster as well. We had the breakfast cereal and collected the cereal box toys. I was all in.

4. What movie scene do most people hold in high regard or have an emotional response to that just falls flat for you?

Any dramatic scene with Tom Cruise. I want to like him but he is such a Scientology whack job that it is difficult or me to differentiate the actor from the character being played.

“Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.” I have posted about this movie a lot .
