What is your favorite vacation you have ever taken? Why?: My family has vacationed at Dale Hollow Lake for generations. I love the water. Dale Hollow is not commercialized like some other lakes. It’s peaceful.

My bucket list (three things I want to do before I die): I don’t have one. I don’t feel that life is defined by items checked on a list. If I felt there were things I HAD to do before I die, I certainly wouldn’t wait and I’d probably do them more than once.
