Self-disclosure

I was tagged by Texas in Africa to participate in the following exercise in self-disclosure.

1. Link to the person that tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself.
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.

Seven Facts About Me
1. I'm a graduate of the Univ. of Texas where I went originally planning on attending law school after undergraduate studies. I was there in the days of Heisman Trophy winner Earl Campbell. I actually hit his predecessor, Roosevelt Leaks, with a snowball. I don't know what possessed me to do that but I lived to tell about it.
2. I met my wife on a summer beach project with Campus Crusade for Christ in Panama City Beach, Florida.
3. I once saw a UFO while deer hunting in South Texas. My brother, hunting about a half mile away, witnessed the same phenomenon. I read today about some UFO sightings near Stephenville, TX and it brought back memories.
4. Though not a Baylor graduate, I wrote my doctoral dissertation on Baylor's namesake--Judge R.E.B. Baylor.
5. My wife and I have four sons, ranging in age from 30 to 15.
6. Though we resigned from the IMB five years ago, I continue to make frequent trips to Latin America, participating in missions trips and leadership training events.
7. I am a groundhog, having been born on Feb. 2nd. In an interesting combination of pairs, I was born on 2-2 at 10:10 and weighed 7 lbs., 7 oz.

I'm not sure how many of these I will tag are currently reading my blog, but I'll tag 7 individuals to abide by the rules.
Brian, Paul, Kevin, Jason, Bowden, Guy, and Micah.

Micah,

Thanks for stopping by. I read your post on the EC but had a bit of problem with the formatting. The first 2 or 3 characters on the left were cut off. Don't know if that's a problem with the layout or my reader. I look forward to your interesting facts.

Gary-

I'm not sure why the formatting problem? It appears fine in my browser. I'll have to play around with it a bit more.

Kevin,

Sorry for the duplicate request. Now that you mention it, I recall having seen your list.

Micah,

I left a comment on your blog about your recent post and also mentioned that I had no problem reading it on my laptop. Issues I think with an older version of IE on the desktop at church.

I do read your blog, just a little slow responding. My response will be posted tomorrow.
