  1. Some of your answers surprised me. You didn’t specify if school was K-12 or college? They may differ? Mark and I both like Ice Cream as your favorite sandwich, and though I don’t eat cereal for breakfast often, you did chose my favorite. Josh, I think these are good questions for reunion because we’re all different as adults than we were as children. We reserve the right to question the author at a future time. You should ask Susan Mosey if she knows the famous Amish ice-breaker questions as some of yours would be useless to them.
    BTW – Mark wants to know when you are going to take over the bear hunt for the next generation to learn?
