1. What’s your favorite thing to eat?
-I would have to say fresh fruit. I love cantaloupe and red grapes! I recently ate at an Indian Restaurant in Denver that has to have been the best food I've ever eaten. I ordered Chicken Masala. My mouth is watering just thinking about it…
2. What’s your favorite pastime?
-It kind of goes in phases; currently it's riding my road bike. I also love to play the piano and play basketball when I can. I mostly love to watch movies with my wife. Actually any time spent with Noelle is something I can't wait to do.
I wonder what part of watching movies with me he likes...when I fall asleep after 20 minutes or when I bug him to tell me how it's going to end...every two seconds.
3. What’s the best thing about being married?
-Having someone there who really cares about me. I also found someone who never complains and supports everything I do. I consider myself very lucky...
4. What’s your wife’s best feature?
-I love her smile and that certain way she looks at me…yowzers!
I didn't realize I looked at him a certain way...hmm...
5. Why did you tell your wife her head was full of fluff?
-As I recall, I didn't tell her that, but she blind-sided me with the question of whether or not her head was full of fluff. I was subsequently caught in a corner and, without thinking, blurted out a 'yes'. My initial thought was that she liked movies that had 'fluff' in them so she wouldn't like this certain action movie we were discussing. My wife is very intelligent. Her head is definitely not full of fluff but wisdom and deep thoughts. She is wise beyond her years.
This is how it really went:
Jason was telling me about his favorite movie and summed it all up by saying, "But I don't think you would like it. It's pretty deep actually."
And my reply was: "And you think my brain is full of fluff and can't handle deep movies?"
He said, "Yes."
Pretty black and white to me.
6. What made you finally decide to get married…after 39 years?
-I have no idea other than it took me that long to find her. If only she would have come around sooner…however, I have no regrets. I don't think marriage could be any better! There are many good things about getting married a little later in life. One is that we don't take being married for granted. We both know all too well how being alone feels... Definitely no regrets!
7. What song best describes your marriage?
-"How Sweet It Is" Written by James Taylor, Performed by Michael Buble
8. List 5 things you want for your next birthday:

9. If you could change one thing about your life what would it be?
-To Be Debt Free
10. Tell our blogging friends three random things about you:
-I was in the Army National Guard for 14 years.
-I'm an assistant Cub Master
-My greatest experiences usually involve standing on something really high and looking at an amazing view. Noelle and I recently stood on a mountain top near the place where I grew up. It was magical...
And there you have it...5 minutes with my husband. I emailed him a little while ago and asked what he had for lunch. This is what he said:"What I had for lunch was a bowl of the most delectable cereal you can imagine. Actually it was chocolate Rice Krispies and Reeses Pieces Cereal mixed together (we really have to go shopping.) And a couple of slices of toast (the bread is great as toast by the way.)"
I'm SO not a good wife. Too bad he's stuck with me.
