The Guy Behind the Blog // 03

The Guy Behind the Blog // 03 It's that time again! Caleb loves “addressing the blog-o-sphere!” As a part of Betsy Gettis’s linkup, it’s time to get to know some more about the man behind this blog! :)

Do you have a good luck charm or ritual? (like a lucky coin, or you always used to listen to a certain pump-up song when you played sports in high school or college?)

Well, sort of. When my dad and I work together we always listen to our bluegrass music. So when I’m working alone I turn it up nice and loud and it’s like he’s right there with me.

What is your favorite dish that your girlfriend makes for you?  Do you have any fun memories of a time when she tried to cook and it totally flopped or does she get it right every time?

My parents are here to visit, so the other day Brittany and my mom made these spinach fritters. They are my new favorite!

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

I wanted to be an inventor. Ever since I can remember I’ve been building things. I loved any sort of machinery! Even when I was only three or four I was obsessed with the trains that would go by our house. I would run around screaming ‘TRAIN!’ when I heard them coming. Then, I’d count every last car. When I was a couple years older I started building remote controlled airplanes and small rockets. I loved experimenting with my own designs. As I got older I got into building robots and other more complex things, like welding and fabrication skills. Later, I got a job at a machine shop and loved every minute of it.  I read everything I can about how things work and how they are made.  Wow, this is turning into a book!

Which of the five senses is your strongest?

Well, it’s definitely not my ears. Brittany always gets perturbed when I don’t hear her. She’s cute when she’s mad.

Would you ever run for president?

You know all those aptitude tests they make you take in highschool and college? I always got ‘leader’ or ‘manager’. I’m nothing like that though! I don’t like being in the lead! I guess they figure if you’re not going to be a follower than you have to be a leader. What if you just want to do what you want? Why don’t those tests have a Loneranger option? So no, I wouldn’t want to be president. I would be a king though! King is totally different.

If you were a king what would your palace look like?

I am so glad you asked! It would have a moat full of alligators. On the tops of the walls would live a family of honey badgers! So even if you could climb the walls you’d be finished because honey badger don’t care! Oh, and definitely a helipad. Got to have a helipad.

He's a king to me :) Come link up with Betsy Gettis and let others know more about the man behind your blog!
