Five things you didn't know about me

Blast Bryan Murley! He's tagged me with one these "Five things you didn't know about me ..." memes. I'll play along, but only because after working hours next to me at Newsplex, he knows too many of my secrets:

1) After 31 years of marriage, I love my wife even more each day.

4. I hit an RBI triple in my final at-bat in Little League baseball; the pitcher was my next-door neighbor.

5. I can (sort of) play two songs on guitar: "I Can't Explain" by The Who and the bass line to "The Chain" by Fleetwood Mac — the latter seems appropriate here.
