What are your other hobbies besides diving?

Football, I am a season ticket holder to the Kansas City Chiefs, Judo, I am a 1st-degree brown belt and making videos.

And one last question, Any funny diving stories?

Man, this is hard. Memaw can you think of any funny stories or do I need to call Kathy? I think there is something that comes from Mermet but I just can’t think of one. Then Grady stepped up to help with this story.

When I was a pre-diver I would go and get all my own stuff and put it together while Memaw and Papa were underwater. They would come up and couldn’t find me, I was off in the water, not too deep though.
