Given to Hal from John.

This week ends with another fitting bit of irony.  As I have mentioned in posts prior, people do not know the person they're giving their gift to nor who they're getting the gift from.  John gave this Brutus the Buckeye decorative globe to Hal, who happens to be a graduate of Ohio State, along with four of his children.  He also owns a bar that features a good deal of Ohio State memorabilia (see below).  Needless to say, Hal was thrilled at this latest addition.

-Profession: Bar owner; retired teacher

-Favorite Muppet:  Kermit

-You're an avid weightlifter--I need some advice.  How many reps using the little lime green weights at the gym should I do to get completely ripped?:  Umm...

-You described yourself as a 'pack rat'.  If you had a sizable number of Sammy Davis Jr., Sinatra, and Dean Martin albums around, what would that make you?:  I guess a Rat Pack pack rat.

-You're very knowledgeable in the field of astrology.  What do you make of the daily predictions that come in the newspaper?:  They're a guide and I see how I fit in them.  They fit a certain pattern, but a lot of times, people are combinations of different signs or have different influences that makes a straight-up reading more complicated.
