FAVORITES

  • Music: George Strait is the KING, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Garth Brooks, Brooks & Dunn - all those people!
  • Food: Filet Mignon, medium rare. Mexican food and pizza, but of course I love Cajun food like gumbo and etouffee.
  • Drinks: Water, Dr. Pepper, sweet tea, Maker’s Mark, Michelob Ultra.
  • Blue Jeans: Levi’s.
  • Thing to do AFTER work: Ride around, look at things — kind of the same as work because I like to ride around the farm, then drive to downtown Mer Rouge and see who might be there to visit with.
  • Movie Stars: I love any movie that Will Ferrell is in, Adam Sandler, Will Smith — I’m into funny movies. Also love “8 Seconds” with Wayne Frost, the world champion bull rider, plus “Pure Country” with George Strait!
  • Mantra: Whenever things get rough or aren’t going good, I always say, “It’s rough as a corn cob and as long as a railroad.”
