An Interview with TMFAdmiral

Last updated: 7/4/2010
The Fool:
What's your favorite movie, and why?
TMFAdmiral:
Lord of the Rings - all 11+ hours of the three extended version DVD's - I've read the books several times over since the 60's and am amazed at Tolkien's imagination & storytelling. The books were a 1969 birthday present from my Mother and carry great sentimental value as she died a few years later
The Fool:
Given a second chance, what financial decision would you like to do over?
TMFAdmiral:
HeHe! As a financial decision getting divorced was the worst - I believe there was a study of "ordinary" millionaires & the single largest correlating factor was that they were all married to their first wife/husband
The Fool:
What do you fear most?
TMFAdmiral:
My 5' 1" wife and her bow & arrow. You see she's a self-styled Warrior Elf and she'd let fly with that thing quicker than you can say "Legolas"
