Interview with a Principle

Jim is a difficult man to catch up with these days. Between Port Tobacco and his many other projects, he is flittering from one site to another, with his head in the ground, often smelling and tasting the soil. We saw much evidence of this in Port Tobacco last week. It kind of makes you wonder what kind of man this Dr. Gibb is.


I was able to catch up to Jim last week and he granted me a rare interview:


Jim, what do you love to do most of all?
Archaeology


Where do you like to do it?
Port Tobacco


What is it about archaeology you like most?
Dirt


What is your favorite drink?
Funny you should ask. I have traveled the world sampling the finest wines, beers, and liquors. Some might think a fine Italian or French wine would be most pleasing to my pallet. Wrong. The finest is 10 oz. Budweiser in a can!


There you have it folks!

Actually, it is a toss up between good Scotch and red wines.

Budweiser has one redeeming value, in my book: it is non-intoxicating unless consumed in disgustingly large quantities.

A wise man....scotch and Virginia Red Wine are my beverages of choice in retirement - for the same reasons.
