Introduction has lived on earth for 76 years and has been married for 54 of those years to Ellie, his wife. They have two sons, one daughter, the appropriate assortment of in-laws, and six absolutely magnificent grandchildren. He enjoys reading, playing the piano, driving in the country, sitting by the ocean, watching birds fly, gazing into a roaring fire, holding his wife's hand, and spending time with his grandchildren. He doesn't fancy doing yard work, walking a dog who definitely is not in the mood, or cleaning up after one who is (RIP Jethro, 2004-2013).
Favorite Movies Field of Dreams, Out Of Africa, Dances With Wolves, They Shoot Horses, Don't They?, Some Like It Hot, Sound Of Music, To Kill A Mockingbird, Fiddler On The Roof, Casablanca, all three Lord Of The Rings movies, Big Fish, Harold and Maude, Raising Arizona, Purple Rose of Cairo, Schindler's List. I might have liked Prince of Tides better if it hadn't had Barbra Streisand and I might have been able to enjoy My Fair Lady if it hadn't had Audrey Hepburn lip-synching to Marni Nixon.
Favorite Books The Bible in some versions but not others, C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, Pat Conroy, anything by Flannery O'Connor.
