Typical Harry Potter Fan?

Put down the book, put down the ice cream bar and go get some excercise, fresh air and sunshine!

I've Been Tagged

I've been tagged by Anwyn. I don't know what I did to deserve it. Basically, I have to post eight things about me that you might want to know and find eight other poor suckers to tag. Well, here goes:
1. This post is going to take a while to complete because I am without living space in my home. I sent my wife and daughter away while remodeling the house and I am eating out of restaurants and sleeping on a love seat in a corner. I am typing this on a laptop on my deck and I don't know how much longer that will last.
2. The hardest part will be finding eight other bloggers to tag.
3. When I was a baby I was dandled on the lap of a man who received three separate death sentences for murder.
4. In my last Fourth Amendment case the sergeant who filed the false affidavit for a search warrant against my clients got life and the detective got ten years.
5. My favorite whittling knife is an Opinel #8 that I bought some twenty-five years ago.
6. My last bankruptcy case resulted in a double murder and suicide. The junior secured creditor killed one of his debtors and his lawyer and then shot himself.
7. I am good at talking to people. I have heard said about me that I "could talk to a tree".
8. One of my earliest memories, maybe I was five, is holding a burlap bag while my father was shoveling in horse manure in our stable.
DEVELOPMENT: Patterico is "propagating the virus" with a couple of mutations. We'll see. I have some of my home back but still a lot left to do.
9. [1 & 2 don't honestly count] If I was eight yet my brother was six going on seven. We were out with the lambs and he got stung by a scorpion on his hand. I could not send him home alone and I could not leave the lambs alone. I sent him on ahead following behind with the lambs (sheep travel at their own pace) as fast as I could, cursing all the way.
10. A client of twelve years (civil matters), whom I met because one of her places of business was next to my office, was brutally murdered in a late-evening robbery of another of her businesses, for the day's receipts, by one of her employees and her two accomplices.
I like the way SayUncle says it: If you want to play along, consider yourself tagged.

I've Been Linked (Plus Serenading Kate)

By Box Wines for this casual comment I posted about Jest Red possibly the best value in wines I have found.

Quite unlike
this deliberate link from Venomous Kate whom I admire very much but, knowing that she hates country music, finally could not resist serenading, ... err ... that is teasing, her with my favorite song:
