Played the Mad Hatter, 1st acting role, in 'Alice in Wonderland', in Mrs. Mowrey's preschool, Newport RI, aged 10 approx, 1937. Stuffed younger brother George (the Dormouse) into the teakettle facsimile.
Years later was Prospero in 'The Tempest,' (American Theater Co, Portland OR, in the 70's); wept openly (but managed to keep the lines clear) in the epilogue. Retired.
Sailed the Atlantic twice, once as the ship's cook, with four others, each time in a 45-55 ft. sloop.
Learned to pray.
Almost drowned.

Tom, age 85
