Jim Nelson: What was your childhood like? It was a good childhood. I feel like. We always had clothes to wear and food to eat and had a good friends and I was raised in a good home with a good mother and father and a great brother and sister had a dog named Tip. That was a great, great friend that I would sometimes when there was nothing else around tip and I would go out and she was a good dog. She was, she was just a mongrel dog, but tell her to sit and she would sit and I'd go hide someplace and then give a whistle and she'd come looking for me and just come bounding around the house on all fours, just looking everywhere and looking, trying to find. We'd do that for hours sometimes. I had, I had a good childhood and raised with good friends, really good friends who are good people and raised in a good home. Uh I don't know if I'd change anything about those things.
