3 Fun Facts
1. I change my hair color more frequently than some people change their socks. (And don’t lend your shoes to those people. EW!)
2. When I was a kid, a moose chased me. So now I guess I’m “It.” I love chatting with readers but if THAT moose shows up at our Festival, I’m gonna hafta go chase it.
3. One year, I came in last place in our neighborhood’s BBQ Ribs Cook-Off and everybody laughed at me. So for the entire next year, I practiced cooking ribs like crazy. “What’s for breakfast?” “Ribs.” And that year, I won first place!
(This is the personality you’re dealing with here, folks!)
