What I Appreciate Most About Being A Lawyer And Five (Make That Six) Things You May Not Know About Me

At Patterico's (and now at xrlq's as well:)

What I appreciate most about being a lawyer:
It’s indoor work with no heavy lifting.
I did not have to dissect cadavers in law school.
It does not require me to carry a gun.
You can do anything with it, from being a total “law-nerd” like Justice Roberts (I mean it in a nice way) or a “Renaissance man” who read too much Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett in his teens.

Five (make that six) things you may not know about me:
1. I have herded sheep (and goats). I probably still remember how to make two kinds of cheese over a campfire. The only store-bought things I need are a largish kettle, a cheesecloth and salt. (I can carve a large wooden spoon for stirring, use the enzyme from the stomach gland of an unweaned lamb, and you know where milk comes from);
2. I have a broken nose from fighting two guys at the same time when I was sixteen;
3. I am a police academy dropout;
4. I have owned three motorcycles, a HD Sportster, a Kawasaki 900Gpz and a Z-1, and I have “dropped” all three of them;
5. I came out of adolescence at age 45 when my daughter was born.
6. Why does it have to be only five? I am a good-looking man with a beautiful daughter.
