WHAT I’VE LEARNED: I gave up honking in traffic years ago. I’ve come to accept the person in front of me holding up traffic probably has all sorts of pressures and stresses. They don’t need one more from me.
FAVORITE VACATION SPOT: Williamsburg. My wife was born and raised there, and we have a family retreat on the York River we visit as much as possible.
