Bo has been married for 10 years. He and his wife used to be part of a “pack of five,” and are now “pet lovers between dogs.” They have nine nieces and nephews and are just about ready for a new fur baby. That said, Bo may soon be in the market for a Golden Retriever! His other interests include Gov’t Mule and crafting quilt patterns.
Mac or PC? “Mac guy trying to make friends with Linux.”
Favorite artist: “Gov’t Mule”
Favorite thing as a child: “Playing games in the floor with my grandmother—Candy Land, pick-up sticks, Tiddlywinks…”
Special hobbies/interests: About creating quilt patterns: “This is a way for someone without much artistic ability to make art. … Been doing it a couple years. … We originally started doing the ones that were patterns of the Underground Railroad line. So, they apparently would hang things to give messages to runaway slaves and tell them different things. The North Star says, ‘go north,’ and different ones say different things. So, that’s kind of what got us interested. … I’ve probably made a dozen over the last couple years.”
