Would you care to share any fun facts about yourself?

Al: I’m country at heart.  I enjoy being in nature and by water. I enjoy fishing. I spent a lot of time in the country growing up, going between my parents' cabin on a lake and my uncle's farm, which also had a significant wooded area.  These experiences included fishing, hunting, and some farm life. Any opportunity to be in nature brings me peace and relaxation.
