(with the bow tie) has developed and honed his unique brand of humor throughout his uneventful life. Some of life's lessons that John considers invaluable in making him the man he is today include: Pet turtles are not toys (a.k.a. "Lovey the turtle meets the Sizzler of Death"); Gerbils, although quick enough to run out of their tails, are not faster than cats (a.k.a. "Trixie the Gerbil gets eaten"); Fish are seldom as hungry as they look (a.k.a. "Goldie does the backstroke"); Dried rabbit droppings look peculiarly like raisins (a.k.a. "Don't mess with Dad's raisin bran"); M&Ms, if left in one's nose long enough, will start to hurt (a.k.a. "The smell that made even the doctor pass out"). John has since graduated from college (Univ. of VA), started working as an engineer, realized that engineers don't make as much as he thought, married a lawyer wife Heidi, shown in picture) and is now living comfortably in Alexandria, VA. with Heidi and their two beagles (who are still alive -- so far).
