Big Orange Michael: The Logtar Interview
Last week, I interviewed Logtar for the Interview Meme. Now, Logtar is returning the favor. Here are my answers.

1. As boys we always identify with out fathers, emulate them in many ways and learn from their actions. Your father seems like an excellent example to follow, but my question is, what comes to mind when I ask you to describe a moment in life where your Mother did something that still guides you to this day?

As I've said before, I am very close to my family--all of them. There have been many times when I've looked to my mom for guidance, support and wisdom over the years. I'm not sure it's been so much one thing, so much as many things. See, my Mom grew up as an Army brat and then she married and Air Force officer. So she's travelled all around the world. And over the years, my mom has shown me the importance of family. And that being together in the most important thing--not just physically but emotionally. It didn't matter where we moved, as long as we were together we could make it.

2. We both seem very close to our sisters, she has been a very influential person in my life and I have played the Big Brother role lots of times… still do it now from time to time, tell us about a moment in your life when you played BB to your sister.

My sister's junior year of high school she was dating this guy who was, well, a jerk. Actually jerk doesn't even come close to describing it, but this is a family blog and I don't want to offend anyone. Anyway, he'd asked her to the prom and then one day before the prom he dumped her. She was pretty devestated, as you can imagine. My parents had to go to a social function that evening and I had planned to go to a Busch Gardens employee bash. But when my sister came home upset, I put aside those plans and stayed home with her. We went and got ice cream and all kinds of toppings, rented some movies and just hung out.

3. In my Christian walk one of the toughest things to do is to distinguish between God’s will and my own. I believe I am good by nature ;) no really, LOL. My question is, how do you make that distinction?

Now here is a question I wrestle with almost daily on my walk--is it what God wants or what Michael wants? The best way is for it to be both. But, hey, I'm stubborn. I've found over the years is that there will times when I pray for what God wants and needs me to do. I will hear an answer and go--yeah ,but what if...and then try to reconcile what I want with what I've been told. God has this way of reminding me. I compare it rain drops on a stone....God will pelt me with little droplet moments to remind me--hey, this is where you really need to be and need to go. Get back with the program, I know what I'm doing...trust Me. So, sometimes it's a matter of being reminded over and over again--by the way, your path is good but mine is better..why not get over here on Mine.

4. I hope you don’t think I have made the questions to tough :) here is the one that I spent some time thinking about, I told you I would get you back. Not only that it is a compound question. We all know you are a TV fan, but you also like to read and watch movies. If you had to unplug the TV and never touch it again what entertainment outlet would take up most of that time? And this is no single questions answer either, I want a least 3 examples of specific artist of authors ;)

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack! No more TV and new Dr Who?!? That will NOT happen. LOL

But, let me answer the question. I'd have to go with probably reading, followed by music. I love to read. In fact, I cannot remember a time in my life when I didn't know how to read. I remember checking out Fox in Socks from the school library and being excited that I could make the words tell me the story without anyone's help. That was cool. Now, I have a couple of favorite authors--Stephen King, Elizabeth George, Phillip Gully, Max Lucado, Peter David. I love their books and can't wait for the next one to come out. So, I'd be content with those authors . As for music, I love all kinds and it'd be hard to narrow it down to just three. Oh, OK I will. Ray Stevens, Rebecca St James and The Monkees.

5. I am having too much fun, I want more questions… does this work kind of like wishes and can I make my 5th question 3 more questions… hrm… fine I will play nice. I could go for the easy, put you on the spot and ask you when are you coming to visit… but I will just change that to a childhood one. I want to know what childhood toy you still have, or know where it is sitting right now. It could be at your parents, but it would be interesting to see what you come up with.

When I was three years old, I had heart surgery. If not for that, I'd not be here today, blogging obsessively about all the stuff I blog about. During that stay in the hospital, I had a tape on Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too that I listened to a lot. I loved Winnie the Pooh. So much that my mother crocheted me a Winnie the Pooh to cuddle and sleep with at night. I still have it at my parent's house and I hope to someday be blessed and share it with my kids.
