John, Johnny, JB, Barry… doesn’t matter what you call him… today you call him the Birthday Boy. Happy Birthday, Honey! John and I have been together since we were whippersnappers and didn’t have two nickels to rub together. From the moment I met him I knew he was… well, different, lol, but in the best of ways. What makes John Inwood the most interesting man you know?
Well, for starters, the man loves his hair. And hair products. Which is all the more entertaining now because he doesn’t have any. Hair, I mean, lol. He has had a mullet and highlights and kept both meticulously groomed. With the decision to start shaving his head he turned his efforts to a seriously badass Viking kind of beard. Which also requires its own set of products. Sigh. The man really takes longer to get ready than I do. 🙂
John has had more happen to him in his life than I thought even possible and he loves to tell the tales. John is a gifted storyteller and he can often be found at the center of a group regaling them with one misadventure after another. Ever given yourself your own stiches? John Inwood has. Smart mouthed a bunch of bikers? He lived to tell the tale. Barely, lol. Ever launched your bass boat into the lake without the plug in it? Yep, did that, too. I keep telling him to write a book so all this stuff doesn’t get forgotten. Maybe one day.
John Inwood is a man of passions. No, not that kind of passion, you naughty reader, you! – the one where you are totally into a hobby/interest and learn everything you can about it. Golf, the stock market, birds, growing a lawn, beer, disc golf, poker, Fantasy Football, you name it. If something piques JB’s curiosity he won’t rest until he has discovered everything about it. And then he puts it into action. You should see our backyard right now. Bird feeders have become a *thing* and we have the most spectacular arrangement hanging like art from the trees. On wires. It’s like Cirque de Soleil with the squirrels some mornings, performing acrobatic stunts to get from one feeder to the next. Sigh. Only John Inwood.
I really could go on and on, but I think the best way to put it is John Inwood is not so much a man as an experience, lol. He has spent 52 years on the planet Earth and it has been my good fortune to bear witness to his shenanigans for more than half of it. If I can keep him away from runaway power washers ( now THAT’S a story and a half!), he just might make it through another 50. HA! Love you, JB. Xxx
