David Arning

1. Name 3 people, dead or alive, that you would like to have dinner with & why?

  • Jesus Christ – I’ve got a few questions.
  • Bruce Springsteen – His music has been an inspiration and companion for many years.
  • Ella Dorsey (regional meteorologist) – I like to watch the weather?

2. What’s the best vacation you’ve ever been on?

  • Honeymoon in Maui was the best! Second best was a month-long cross country trip with my brother and some buddies right after my high school graduation.

3. What are your favorite TV shows, Netflix series, etc.?

  • I’ve got a growing list of TV series I’d like to start watching but can’t ever seem to get around to. I like PBS Frontline when I can remember to watch it, and I’m a big fan of Austin City Limits. But if I’m actually watching TV, it’s usually sports.

4. What are 3 things we don’t know about you?

  • I was born (unexpectedly) at home about 1/4 mile from where I live today.
  • I served in the Navy for 5 years and have a Master’s Degree in historic preservation.
  • I married my middle school sweetheart.

With gratitude & coffee,
